Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

In the US there is a community of people who want to "make government so small you can drown it in a bathtub." Not a large one, but the idea is out there.

So in our case of a hung congress, there is a constituency for a "no government at all" situation. In fact, we are operating that way right now, sort of, with an obstinate democratic majority in the house and an obstinate republican majority in the senate (and an obstinate president).

But I think our rules are clear enough to prevent the case of not having an executive branch at all.
