The use of Executive Orders to bypass our system of checks and balances is nothing new.  

Even though the founders designed our government to include 3 equally powerful branches to provide checks and balances to each other, every President since George Washington has wielded their pen instead of working through Congress as envisioned by our founders.


The founders designed a government of the people, for the people, and by the people.  NOT of the President, for the President, or by the President.

But since the practice of issuing Executive Orders isn’t going to end, all we can do is study each Order and – as a people – fight back against any Order that is illegal, unconstitutional, or represents even a hint of executive overreach.

    The only way for the president to bypass checks and balances is if he did not abide by the court orders to stop. That’s when people could potentially go to jail for helping the president break a court order. But no one has done it as of today.
