News Story: Too Much Of A Good Thing | The New Republic:
Typical liberal view when things don’t go smooth. I agree that what John Adams said is true, but not because the process of democracy… Nope it is because the government changed the process to form a bigger government.
What do I mean? Simply that the process was originally set up so that only one house of Congress was elected by the people and one was elected or appointed by the state legislators. In this way the House of Representatives was the true voice of the people and the Senate was the voice of the states. That meant that the House of Representatives would do the will of the people they were elected to to represent and the Senate would do the will of the states. As such the Senate was less of politically driven part of the government and more in ensuring the state power and rights were protected. Whereas today their is nothing but career politicians that vote down the political line of the parties that are a part of.
By making both houses electable by the people it basically created a force that creates bigger and bigger government by the both houses politicians buying votes to stay in office. Lets face it, most people in the country vote more for the person or party that they feel gives them the most. They are more willing to except a candidates negatives if they are given something, tax break, welfare, grants or etc. Most Americans today won’t hold their chosen candidate accountable for his/her records in Congress.
Now reading history, what John Adams was talking about was the fact that like most democratic governments will over time kill themselves by voting themselves benefits. They will vote for the government to give them more and more until it breaks the country. They will start to blame everything on the other side and raise taxes to the point that no one, the people, the employers, or government can afford to pay their bills or taxes.
Hmm. Sounds pretty close to what is happening today.
