Socialist Checks and Balances

Every child in the US is taught that a system of 'checks and balances' between the executive, legislative and judicial branches of government, keeps the US from being a dictatorship. There is a long history of 'checks and balances' in exploiting societies with constitutional governments. However, power really lies in the hands of the strongest exploiters in business and their agents in government – backed by a top-down 'body of armed men.' A tiny group effectively “selected” the US president in 2000, and unilaterally decided to pursue the aggression in Iraq three years later despite great opposition, even within the government.
