Even to this day -- in the face of all the political and economic problems -- the basic system of Checks and Balances still works, and can work very well when "we the people" become engaged and vigilant in watching what "our" government is doing, especially what our Congress is up to.
When "we the people" remain indifferent to the political workings of our government, we get growing statism -- when we become vigilant and engaged, we move towards liberty.
