This is how I understand it. The system is designed to impede complete control.
Checks and balances and so on. Some days the US system has advantages, that prevent a President or party from doing everything it wants. Some days it impedes progress.
There are many issues that I think should have a 60 or 65 percent approval. Like the Brexit vote.
Up here, a majority governing party, could proceed with the wall. We have other issues that could also stall it, such as is happening with the pipelines.
