A limited government is a political system where the legalized force is restricted through delegated and enumerated powers. The United States Constitution, for example, was designed to limit government's role to its core functions: to preserve individual liberty and protect private property. Politicians and economists differ on their concept of a limited government, but a common interpretation is that it is a governmental body that levies just enough taxes to provide for national defense and police protection and otherwise stays out of people's affairs.
Congressional oversight is the voice of the American people according to Republican dogma. When the American people are forced to accept a limited government they lose their ability to monitor their own government. The American people cannot be tapped to reign in their runaway administration and it's congress.
There is nothing in the USA Constitution that demands democracy. The USA Constitution sets up a representative democracy, but, it never mentions the word democracy. "One vote" with a representative government.
Communist countries have one vote as well.
Nowhere is the word "democracy" (click here) mentioned in the Declaration of Independence or the U.S. Constitution. How could that be? Our government is a democracy!
Well, for one, as we'll discuss later, the Founders actually feared democratic rule. JAMES MADISON expressed this attitude in FEDERALIST #10: "...instability, injustice, and confusion ...have in truth been the mortal disease under which popular governments everywhere perished..." In the late 18th-century, rule by the people was thought to lead to disorder and disruption. Yet a democratically-based government was seen as superior to the monarchies of Europe.
Democracies did not originate with the founding of the United States. The term "democracy" comes from two Greek words: "demos" (the people) and ""kratia" (power or authority). So of course DEMOCRACY is a form of government that gives power to the people. But how, when, and to which people? The answer to those questions changes through history....
The Tea Party goes back to 1776, that doesn't include the Bill of Rights.
The people are allowed their liberties and it is through liberty that government will be monitored. POLE SITTERS. Observatory powers of the people in all areas of government will bring about lawsuits that will force courts to determine the rights of the people to receive those powers.
These folks don't care about anything, but, the US Constitution. Judges will rule according to standing law and the Trump administration and congress will be thrown out of governance. The judicial branch will bring about government, not the executive branch under this administration. It is a ridiculous dance that is illegal to begin with, but, the "W" administration was famous for pushing the powers of the Executive Branch.
Sorry, Donald, but Congress and the people through the amendment process has't removed the Bill of Rights or the entire 27. This administration is wrong and is using the people's taxes for political purposes.
Amendment 27 Annotations
No law varying the compensation for the services of the Senators and Representatives shall take effect, until an election of Representatives shall have intervened.
Some of what will transpire with this administration will trickle down to the states, counties and cities. Other issues such as our federal lands will be viewed by the people themselves to realize activity is different and there are problems in the federal administration. Yet other issues will crop up as fish industry monitors no longer are allowed to carry out their vital research and the fisheries start to crash. It will be the evidence 'of living' in the USA that will bring about knowledge of the workings of the USA federal system.
I strongly recommend fishermen and their families pay attention to Alaskan fisheries for the pollution of mining! Pollution is going to effect every life in the USA AGAIN. Even packing plants won't be required to have USDA stickers. Mercury will not be monitored. All kinds of intrusion into an American way of life will begin and the evidence of these pollutants will result in illness; very serious illness. The cities will be forced to hire monitors and set up their own USDA stamp of approval. It is the cities that will push back against such deregulation and make it stick.
The federal government (click here) is obliged by many constitutional provisions to respect the individual citizen’s basic rights. Some civil liberties were specified in the original document, notably in the provisions guaranteeing the writ of and by in criminal cases (Article III, Section 2) and forbidding bills of and (Article I, Section 9). But the most significant limitations to government’s power over the individual were added in 1791 in the Bill of Rights....
Fish swimming in polluted waters carry the pollutants in their flesh; ie: the Great Lakes (click here). The local economy is going to have to take care of it's people and insure their well being. Local ordinances should be passed stating same and passed on to all suppliers to the area, including small business owners. It is what is purely wonderful about the ever growing organic food market; it is already in place and able to expand it's prowess.
Go, America, Go!
Our government is more complicated than ducks walking.
