What is being suggested by the op and in the example is what is considered the combination of a military coup and a dictatorship showing who has the
final power and say when it comes to government.
While currently, the federal government is ultimately turning out to be a joke at best, criminal at worst, it is still a government for all intents
and purposes of, for and by the people. The problem is that many people no longer think of the issues or what is good for the country. The mindset
is what is in it for me now and how can I benefit. The problem is that the long term consequences are not thought about or even considered when the
government is, as it has been, reactionary to what the public wants right then.
Most of the laws that many thought was a good idea at the time is starting to become a nightmare to the general population, to the point where it is
starting to erode on our very freedoms and cross into conflict with the very ideas that founded this country. And the real shame is that we the
people did this to ourselves, and yet no one wants to admit that.
We keep electing the same people to office, time and time again, without thought that this is part of the problem. Politicians who are elected over
and over to the same position begin to think that they are untouchable and it takes a major scandal just to remove them. Perhaps if WE the People,
were to cast and elect a new person to those positions, rather than the same ones over and over, that would be the change that we need. Government
was never supposed to be a career choice, but a duty that the person elected did not want to go, but did it cause it was the correct thing to do. If
you look at the past acceptance speeches of presidents, there was at one point in time, where they showed that they were humbled, thankful and
regretful that they made it into office. Today being elected means parties and a joyful time instead of the dread of being there. Perhaps we need to
put that fear and dread back into the federal government, to where one goes there, but does not seek to remain.
