With regard to our governmental system, the number one check and balance, bar none, is a free and fair election. But over the course of the past several years, concurrent with moral breakdown, there has been a deliberate chipping away of our system's self-policing mechanism.
The perpetrator that is largely to blame for the deterioration that has occurred is none other than the Democratic Party. Democrats have a bad habit of giving lip service to the whole concept of democracy, while behind the scenes they are doing everything possible to undermine its very essence. For example, when it comes to implementing anything that might help eliminate voter fraud, such as cleaning up the voter rolls, requiring voters to show IDs before casting ballots, etc., they fight tooth and nail to prevent it from happening.
