    Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.

    I voted Other. I dunno, really. POTUS is #1 Person in America. Being #1 comes with its perks. Kind of like the eldest sibling dictating his or her will upon the younger ones. Yeah, it sucks, but why would #1 not use their disadvantages against them -- they're #1, they can do whatever the **** they want to do. POTUS will keep being #1 and acting like The Prince as long as he damn pleases...or until Congress kicks him out. 'Cause any legislation trying to be passed to restrict the power of the POTUS, it will be vetoed. And if they battle over that, the POTUS will be impeached. Every POTUS should have been impeached for one terrible ****ing decision or action or whatever. This is a battle reserved for the Congress and the POTUS, one which is fought with a mutually understanding of the implications for the future. It'd take a large scale social movement to truly balance the power imbalances, but it could also just entrench them even further.
