Dispelling the Myth of Co-Equal Branches of Government

You were taught this lie in public school. What lie? The lie that our federal government has three co-equal branches. the-constitutional-hierarchy-of-federal-government

A casual reading of the U.S. Constitution is the first place to start. [ Link to official U.S. Government Archives]

First the Statistics

  • Article I Established the Legislative Branch. There are ten sections and 2,268 words that describe every aspect from its membership to the enumerated powers of federal government to the authority to impeach presidents.
  • Article II defines the Executive branch in four sections and 1,025 words. This section authorizes the President to make treaties with the consent of the Senate, but not on his own authority. This article describes how the Legislative Branch can impeach him to remove him from office. The president is also authorized to execute the laws written by the Legislature.
  • Article III establishes the Judicial branch in three sections and 377 words.
  • The Federal Register (the daily newspaper of the Federal government) is a legal newspaper published every business day by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). The Federal Register contains Federal Agency Regulations. Proposed Rules and Public Notices. There are 743,069 documents published on tens of thousands of pages.

Dr. Ben Carson estimated the size of the Federal Register in 2015. At the end of that year, the Register had 82,036 pages. At 250 pages per inch, the Register would make a stack twenty-seven (27) feet high and this was two years ago. You can imagine its size now.

Analysis

In any industry or organization, how do you know who the boss is? Is it not the person who can fire you?

There are actually five divisions of government, the most important division is the ‘We the People’ division. Federal bureaucracies are known as the fourth branch of government.

We the People can fire lawmakers, representatives and senators. The Legislative Branch can fire Presidents and federal judges. However, neither the President nor the Judiciary can fire lawmakers. Do you see now the hierarchy of government?

Let’s take a moment to review the fourth branch, the bureaucracies. Over the eight years of the Obama presidency, 20,642 regulations were added. This amounts to seven new laws per day, 365 days per year for 8 years.

Historian David Barton says we Americans commit on average three felonies a day and have no idea what regulations we violate.

Summary

The 2016 election cycle was unlike any in all our history. President Donald Trump was elected by Democrats, Republicans, Independents, and Libertarians. He was opposed by the leadership of both major political parties. He pledged to drain the swamp, cut taxes, slash confiscatory business-strangling regulations and make America great again. While giving his inaugural speech, he said and I quote:

This is your day.

This is your celebration.

And this, the United States of America, is your country.

What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people.

January 20th, 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again.

The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer. Everyone is listening to you now. You came by the tens of millions to become part of a historic movement, the likes of which the world has never seen before.

At the center of this movement is a crucial conviction that a nation exists to serve its citizens.

It’s time for all Americans, regardless political party affiliation, to take back ownership of this nation.

May God bless these United States and may God bless President Donald Trump.
