Default True Democracy's Check & Balances


True Democracy's Check & Balances - :-o :-o :-o

Open and transparent government is essential for a true democracy. When government conducts important debates and votes about public laws in secret, we all lose. Congress should hold open and public hearings for laws that affect all citizens, ant not in secret.

This is not only inappropriate, it is dangerous, and it is un-American. It contradicts the values for which our flag stands.

The “check & balances” we have followed since the inception of our Republic, are crucial, indispensable, and a vital ingredient to the health of our Nation, whose purity relies in the equal justice it is to provide to all of its citizens. The integrity of these “checks” are an indispensable attribute without which the Nation seizes to exit. We have seen how history has proven, for this to be exactly the case (i.e., Hitler’s “Downfall” - http://movies.yahoo.com/shop?d=hv&cf=info&id=1808642134 ).

For all of humanity, let’s outgrow the weaknesses of character enacted, when men are overcome by the Power entrusted onto them. Together we will triumph, and the truth shall rise above all that is meaningless. In the end, it always does.

May God help us all.
