1. The Constitution did not accommodate or plan for a standing army.
Our huge military bureaucracy is overwhelming the rest of our government.
I don't know what can be done about it, but you might as well throw away the rest of the Constitution as long as we have unelected people who control the physical force of our nation and who just kind of run on their own track alongside our constitutional government. It is just crazy.
I have no suggestions for how to solve the problem.
No president can be strong or popular enough to deal with it, and clever military leaders schooled in strategy (an naturally prone to be strategists) can outsmart and divide Congress with no problem.
As for the Supreme Court, they have little to say about the military.
So we have a serious problem here that endangers our constitutional government. But we need a strong military. So what to do???????
Does anyone else have any ideas.
It isn't a matter of bad apples or bad people. It is a messed up system.
