Grate­ful for checks, bal­ances

The Denver Post - - OPINION - Re: Adri­enne An­drews Glenn,

“Amer­i­can democ­racy is not so deca­dent af­ter all,” March 24 Charles Krauthammer col­umn.

I am amazed that I, a lib­eral Demo­crat, could agree with Charles Krauthammer, a con­ser­va­tive Repub­li­can columnist. Yet we both ad­mire the Amer­i­can sys­tem of gov­ern­ment that pro­vides the means via the courts, the states, Congress and the me­dia to counter Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s “in­ti­ma­tions of au­thor­i­tar­i­an­ism.” Trump may rail against these demo­cratic in­sti­tu­tions for op­pos­ing his de­mands, but thank God for these coun­ter­weights.
