Congress is suppose to investigate violations of our Constitution. They are given the responsibility to investigate any department or organization that gets funding from the Federal government.
Congress today has become so corrupt that they no longer investigate any violations of our Constitution, whether or not that violation is made by a Senator, Representative, President, judiciary, some federal department, or for profit or "nonprofit" organizations that have received money from the American people.
They are self supporting for selfish gain instead of doing their jobs of protecting the people of the United States. We the people need to band together and educate ourselves on how to remove everyone of them and get our country back to the original intent of the Founding Fathers when they wrote our Constitution.
"The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny." (Federalist Papers, No 47, p. 301 - James Madison)
"It is agreed on all sides that the powers properly belonging to one of the departments (executive, legislative, judiciary) ought not to be directly and completely administered by either of the other departments. It is equally evident that none of them ought to posses, directly or indirectly, an overruling influence over the others in the administration of their respective powers. It will not be denied that power is of an encroaching nature and that it ought to be effectually restrained from passing the limits assigned to it... The next and most difficult task is to provide some practical security for each, against the invasion of the others." James Madison
"It is important, likewise, that the habits of thinking in a free country should inspire caution in those entrusted with its administration to confine themselves within their respective constitutional spheres, avoiding in the exercise of the powers of one department to encroach upon another.
The spirit of encroachment tends to consolidate the powers of all the departments in one and thus to create, whatever the form of government, a real despotism. A just estimate of that love of power and proneness to abuse it which predominates in the human heart is sufficient to satisfy us of the truth of this position.
The necessity of reciprocal checks in the exercise of political power, by dividing and distributing it into different depositories and constituting each the guardian of the public weal against invasions by the others, has been evinced by experiments ancient and modern, some of them in our country and under our own eyes. To preserve them must be as necessary as to institute them. If, in the opinion of the people, the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates. But let there be no change by usurpation; for though this, in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed." From President George Washington's Farewell Address
