Indeed, the US has a separation of powers for a reason. It’s not a dictatorship. It’s a constitutional republic, at least on paper, that respects the rule of law. However, the past century has witnessed the Executive Branch grow more powerful at the expense of the legislative branch. Moreover, in this timeframe, a massive administrative state has consolidated itself in the DC Swamp.
The emergence of this unaccountable government apparatus is a complete affront to founders of this great Republic. They would have never envisioned a scenario where a President and a permanent bureaucracy would exert so much arbitrary power, while the legislative branch is sidelined.
In order to fix DC, not only will states have to resist its tyrannical measures, the legislative branch will also have to re-assert itself and stand up to executive branch and administrative state tyranny.
