An Incomplete Constitution

Section 7 of article 1 of the "Constitution of the United States Of America" as taken from the site states in part:

Every Bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it become a Law, be presented to the President of the United States: If he approve he shall sign it, but if not he shall return it, with his Objections to that House in which it shall have originated, who shall enter the Objections at large on their Journal, and proceed to reconsider it. If after such Reconsideration two thirds of that House shall agree to pass the Bill, it shall be sent, together with the Objections, to the other House, by which it shall likewise be reconsidered, and if approved by two thirds of that House, it shall become a Law. But in all such Cases the Votes of both Houses shall be determined by Yeas and Nays, and the Names of the Persons voting for and against the Bill shall be entered on the Journal of each House respectively. If any Bill shall not be returned by the President within ten Days (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to him, the Same shall be a Law, in like Manner as if he had signed it, unless the Congress by their Adjournment prevent its Return, in which Case it shall not be a Law.

Every Order, Resolution, or Vote to which the Concurrence of the Senate and House of Representatives may be necessary (except on a question of Adjournment) shall be presented to the President of the United States; and before the Same shall take Effect, shall be approved by him, or being disapproved by him, shall be repassed by two thirds of the Senate and House of Representatives, according to the Rules and Limitations prescribed in the Case of a Bill.

Now, as checks and balances go, I would state that the executive branch today holds too much power compared to the amount it wielded in comparison to congress as the republic was set up.

It has become the case that think tanks and groups of policy makers have put "their man" in the white house on many occasions. Foreign treaties have also become the "supreme law of the land" and have somewhat empowered the executive branch to act in place of congress: a situation which has circumvented the checks and balances made upon all bills passed - the treaties hold over those laws as equal with the constitution itself.

So, without scrubbing the constitution, what may be added to it to improve checks on the skew of power from congress to the executive branch?

Today, nothing; but a few hundred years ago perhaps something.

There needs adding a new "check" and new "balance". It is no coincidence that the third seal system of dialogue is as the Revelation's "balances in the hand" as of the rider on the black horse. Satan's device actually needs to be legally instantiated in part, for the preservation of their republic: it is the case that they would have had to sign over a portion of their land's government to the whim of God - or rather, under greater constraint, the will to oppose Satan's own device(s).
