Why do we need to reform the 3 branches of government ?: My recommendations!

The government of the United States, as planned, by that of this nation. Founding fathers, imagined, three, co-equals, branches of government, to ensure, a Balance of Power, to protect the integrity and service of our government, and to reduce the risks of abuse of power! These 3 powers are: (1) Executive Power, which refers to things related to the power of the President, including the members of his Cabinet, and other appointments; (2) Legislative, which comprises both Houses of Congress (Senate and House of Representatives), each with specific responsibilities and authority, etc; and, (3) Judicial Branch, including all Federal Judges and Courts, especially those appointed to long-term and / or life-long positions. This can become a somewhat delicate balance, but unless everything possible is done to ensure that it remains, we are putting our system of government at risk. With that in mind, this article will briefly attempt to consider, examine, review and discuss these 3 branches and some common sense precautions that could make us more secure and protect all constitutional rights, freedoms and rights. Guarantee!

one. Executive: We often argue whether the president’s power is enough, too much, or too little. These last four years should have taught us why this is important! To protect the abuse and suspicions, each candidate for the highest office in our country, must / must be required to present their tax returns, for at least the last 5 years, as well as to approve, a control of Comprehensive security to ensure your aptitude / suitability for the position. In addition, there should be some guidelines, for the necessary degree of relevant experience (after all, even most organizations require specific experience, etc., before qualifying for a position).

two. Congress: The House of Representatives is supposed to have the power – of – the – purse – and therefore the responsibility to prepare and pass a well-considered, relevant, and responsible budget. Unfortunately, as we often witness, partisan politics often gets in the way of quality representation. The Senate is considered, the Higher Body and, therefore, it is supposed to approve the presidential appointments, etc. One of the challenges, it seems, is often we witness, individuals, in Congress, that they have been there for too long and they seem to be out of touch or too comfortable in their positions. Isn’t it about time we seriously considered term limits? This process must balance the advantages of experience and knowledge with the aforementioned disadvantages. For that reason, I think a good compromise could be for House members to be limited to 10 terms and senators to 4 terms.

3. Judicial: Before, anyone must be eligible to serve, either on the US Court of Appeals and / or especially as a possible Supreme Court Justice, must meet some strict guidelines / qualifications. This should begin, with the nominees, submitted to an impartial body (such as the American Bar Association Review, etc.), to verify qualifications, experience, expertise, and past records. Shouldn’t the people, often charged with making such important, relevant and sustainable decisions, and appointed to lifetime appointments, meet specific standards, to guarantee their qualifications, to serve, in that position?

Wake up, America, and demand a better application, of / for, the Balance of Powers between these 3 branches of government! Let us truly make America, maintain its greatness, as our Founders envisioned it!
