  • To establish ballence in power, by dividing democracy into three parts: Executive; Judical; Legislative
  • It is failing because in the executive branch, it only requires one person to veto any bill passed by the legislative branch, As president Bush has Proved, with his current war on terrorism, in a democracy a president may, like any dictator, ignore the will of the people; and their elected representatives; and there is little the other two branches may do about it. Balence of power inn American Democracy does not exist.
  • According to the KJV Bible, government is blasphemous, for it violates the first commandment.
  • balsphemy: Claiming for oneslf the rights or attributes of "God"!

For we know him that hath said, Vengence belongeth unto me, I will recompense, The lord shall judge his people. [HEBREWS 10:30.] ROMANS 12:19. Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but wrather give place to wrath: for it is written, vengeance is mine: I will repay, saith the Lord.

  • Things have not changed in 6000 years.

ISAIAH 3:12. O! My people those who lead thee cause thee to ERR, and destroy the way of thy paths. On line KJV


Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. A consolidation of power is absolute power. This is why the framers of the Constitution separated government power into to three separate branches. The framers acting on approval from the people did not form a "democracy". The Constitution provides for a republican form of government to prevent tyranny from majority rule. The notion that George Bush has ignored the other two branches of government created is willful ignorance. The claims by the people that this is George Bush's war is incorrect. The 101st Congress, having the authority to declare war, opted out of this power and instead created legislation granting authority to the President to do what he is doing. The Supreme Court, more times than not, has upheld this dubious legislation. If you want to be technical about this war, it is the 101st Congress' war and George Bush is the Commander in Chief but even more technically this is our war as we are the people that have allowed this dubious government to operate in this manner.

The above respondent is right to be so skeptical of our government, he is wrong to assert that dictators, or despots or tyrants can do whatever they want. Tyrants can do whatever they want as long is it is tolerated by the people. When the people have had enough they will revolt. As to the biblical notion that governments are blasphemous I respectfully submit several quotes as rebuttal:

"Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves."

ROMANS 13: 1-2

"When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; when the wicked beareth rule the people mourn."


"Where there is no vision, the people perish: But he who keepeth the law, happy is he."


"Do not deny justice to your poor people in their lawsuits. Have nothing to do with a false charge and do not put an innocent or honest person to death, for I will not acquit the guilty."


"Woe to those who make unjust laws, to those who issue oppressive decrees, to deprive the poor of their rights and withhold justice from the oppressed of my people, making widows their prey and robbing the fatherless."

ISAIAH 10:1-2


For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith. For if they which are of the law be heirs, faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect: Because the law worketh wrath: for where no law is, there is no transgression. [ROMANS 4:13-14-15.]

Why would a person of faith require laws, and governments that make laws. Or better yet answer this one:

On $ bills it is written, "In God we trust"; Then why are locks and keys a must? and one must have insurance to; for villainy that others do.

MATTHEW 12:25. Every Kingdom divided against itself is bought to dessolation; Every city ord house divided against itself, shall not stand....

And the politicians in the American Government, have virtually thumbed their noses at This word of God! Dont tell me they haven't.

O! ye of little faith.
