Past, Present, and Future

The three branches in government act as three organs of the American body. They have a specific function used to guide the body in the best direction. They all have a sensory input to the body. The judiciary is sensitive to the past. They guide the country when it forgets its roots, the goals and ideals of the Enlightenment. The congress is the present. Responsible only to its constituents, it is concerned with their pressing needs. This is why only CONGRESS can declare war and why war can never be justifiably preemptive. The president has future preception, and it is his respobsibility to introduce change to the system and convince everyone its needed. More on this later perhaps, I just wanted to get it down when it was still in my head.
