US Constitution: Checks & Balances


Midterm Elections

Most midterm elections are a referendum on the power and popularity of the President. Donald Trump knew this, so he made it all about him (as usual).

He went all-out to support Republican Senate candidates and he ignored the contests for the House of Congress. That was tactical: he knew he would lose Congress, but he wanted to retain the Senate. He was proved right last night.

This is why the writers of the American Constitution drew it up the way they did: they wanted to ensure that the President could never absolutely run (read, ruin) the country for more than two years.

It might seem a bit unwieldy to people from Constitutional Monarchies, but it works and that’s what counts, in the end.

Although the MSM headlines read: “Blue wave hits red wall,” no one knows where this will end up in two years’ time.
