I totally see your point and agree with the dangers. Heck ... that is why we settled the New World ... to get away from King George and His sick Government and Religious oppression. However ... I see great balance as doable ... our country started with these very debates and concerns ... hence the drafting of our constitution. These were great and intelligent men ... they knew more than us of this very debate ... with the same concerns voiced here ... so they drafted what worked ... there was balance. I still hold hope for some return of that balance ... hopefully without too much infighting, violence or turmoil. However until the American people get uncomfortable ... they will not act with moral certitude on their civil responsibilities to bring Governing order.
