Republicans in our Republican-controlled Congress have failed our country by sitting on their hands while our rogue president has made a mess of things.
Maybe when Democrats take control of the House in January, they can enact some remedies. Following are some suggestions.
- Pass legislation making it illegal for presidents to lie.
- Establish a prerequisite that all candidates for president must demonstrate a familiarity with our Constitution, particularly the passages relating to the separation of powers.
- Establish another prerequisite that all candidates for president must be certified by a panel of mental health experts to be free of any personality disorders.
These measures would go a long way toward preventing future predicaments like the one in which we now find ourselves.
