Stern: Get rid of checks and balances

Here is an interesting column on Andy Stern.

In a recent op-ed in the Huffington Post, Andy Stern delves into the topic of checks and balances.  He discusses James Madison and the structure of dividing our government power between state and federal, and the division of power within the federal government among the three branches.

He then calls these checks and balances an "impediment to making the necessary changes" in a global economy.  An impediment.

That darn division of power.  If only that could be consolidated into one branch or one person.

Say, I'm no expert but isn't that tyranny?

This is Andy Stern, former head of the SEIU, one of the largest...yes...LABOR UNIONS in the US.

Andy Stern, the man who has been to the White House as a guest of the community organizer more than anyone else.

Andy Stern, whose deputy Stephen Lerner is planning a coordinated attack on Wall Street in May with hopes of crashing the US stock market.

Andy Stern, now on record advocating despotism, tyranny, dictatorial power.

Remember, it was the community organizer who - on the eve of the 2008 election - said they were mere days from "fundamentally transforming" this country.  Fundamentally transforming?
