The Hypocrisy of American Democracy

The framers of our constitution realized the importance of protecting America from itself by establishing a system of checks and balances by which no one part of our government could abuse its power. I think what amazes me is that in the noble process of spreading democracy and freedom throughout the world we are completely willing to ignore the very principles of democracy established by our own country: primarily that no one should be allowed to weild too much power, or the very least should be allowed to exercise that power without any other authority to answer to.
