Two Branches

Wouldn't it be nice if the plan made by our country's founders would be true today?

We only have two branches of government (true, only functioning at a below average rate!), but at least functioning.

The Executive, as spineless as it is, is still making some attempt to do some things for the betterment of our country. And even though our congress has tied the judiciary's hands by the lack of appointing judges, it is functioning to some degree - frightening in the case of the right wing supreme court, but none the less functioning.

Where is the third wing? Opposing everything, going on vacation, and campaigning. Whoopee!
