    Jefferson and Adams had a long going debate about government.  The goal was to set up the branches of government so that their natural desire to become pre-eminent would force them to become checks upon each other.

    Unfortunately, this is overridden by the idea of Party affiliation.  The "Rubberstamp" Congress is the prime example of Congress NOT trying to assert its Constitutional power and merely allowing the usurpation of its power.

    The Republican party bears ALL of the responsibility for the Unitary Executive.  They wanted this power, permanently.

    This is who they are.  They need to be driven out of existence.

    Any "Conservative" party that rises from the ashes will need to find a wholly new underpinning because the party of Lincoln has been unredeemably sullied.
