I see many comments on our government, both good and bad. Yet it seems that very few Americans have any real knowledge about the Founding Document, the Constitution. I was reading one thread about problem with our government. I was, as I usually am, appalled by the misconception of how our government, according to the Constitution, is supposed to work. First, let me state that there are 4, not 3, branches of the government. They are mentioned in order of power/authority. The first is THE PEOPLE, which is mentioned in the preamble. Next is Congress, then the Executive, and finally the judiciary. The people have the ULTIMATE authority by the power of the vote, or eventually by Revolution. Please read the Constitution. Reading this is the only way to understand why it isn't working, and what and how it should work if the Constitution is followed. Many people don't seem to know, or care, that the government is Waaaaaaay out of control. Article VI, section 2 tells us that ANY laws which violate the Constitution, are not laws at all, just so much gobbledygook that Congress has passed without regard to the Constitution.
