The Diseases of the US Political System 

 

Continuous Case Conference Starting March  2020

Introduction

The US constitution, the DNA for the federal government,  has been remarkable in providing a fairly stable framework to weather the past 225 years and achieve remarkable success in creating a government that has seen peaceful national elections and succession of political power. During this time the United States has become a global superpower and the standard of living of our citizens has been unprecedented. However, the current political environment highlights the shortcomings of the political system that has emerged in the twenty-first century. The political process, defined by the constitution, has been corrupted to the point that it is an existential threat to the US. Culture wars, congressional paralysis if not obstructionism, a polarized electorate, global challenges, the surveillance state, concern regard growing national debt, growing inequality, money’s impact on the political election have all contributed to growing distrust of the federal government.

United States 1787
