AZ’s On the Fence

AZ's On The Fence

The Constitution of the United States of America, arguably the most important document in the history of the world, frames the powers of arguably the most powerful nation that the world has ever seen. While brilliant in its construction and enumeration of governmental structure, the separation of powers, checks and balances, elegant in its mechanism and methodology creating rules to govern society, is ultimately imperfect. However, it is the constitution's ability to change and adapt those rules, mechanisms and methodology, which govern our society that makes it the most important and elegant document the world has ever seen.

What we’re talking about here is evolution, adaptation, changing with the times, innovation, progression, development, morphing, transformation or put simply…change.

In our country, including Arizona, we need to change, or risk implosion. The surest way to undermine democracy is from within, by destroying the trust the people have in their elections, institutions, and elected leaders. The two-party system inherently creates an enemy from within. And when there are no external enemies or fights to be had…when there is an issue or issues so fundamental to one’s values and identity that they would martyr themselves for it, people have, do, and will turn on each other, individually or as a body.

The arguments both for and against the two-party system are as old as the constitution itself. And that is what will be at the root of this broadcast. “How do we fix the antagonism which seems to be rooted in Democrats versus Republicans?” Because the issue’s are always far more complex than that, neither party has a solution or an antidote which will appease everyone, even from within their own party.  Tune in to hear both sides of the fence every Sunday at 9am here on Money Radio or download the show anywhere you get your favorite podcast.
