Which is more powerful, the Congress or the Executive?

Hello T:

According to the way the founders wrote it up, all THREE branches of government were equal.. Since the get go, however, there's been a shoving match between the branches as to whom is more powerful..

In my view, when congress ceded it's power to make war to the executive, the executive has used it willy nilly to the detriment of the US.

Today, though, it looks like the congress is asserting itself once again..

Grab some popcorn..

Congress has more power because congress is more responsible for what gets passed into law whereas the executive branch is mostly enforcing what they are told to enforce. Also the people with the real power are neither of them, the true power lies in the hands of fat, trillionare Illuminati Jews who run the banks and multinational corporations.

You should have asked, which is more corrupt.

Politicians have proven to be self centered liars constantly looking out for their own re-elections rather then making America the best it can be.

Who on Earth could want a bigger more controlling Sociaistic Government. They are absolutely corrupt!

Power corrupts! We should have term limits for Congress and stop the corruption.

Congress is a joke.

3 years of the fools is a proof positive.

The Executive branch of government cannot work unless a Democrat is the president.
