The three heads represent the three branches of our government.
The center head is the legislative branch; one eye represents the House of Congress and the other represents the Senate. In order for any legislation to pass, both the members of the House of Congress and the Senate ‘must see eye-to-eye’.
The head on the left side represents the executive branch, The President is the head of the executive branch, which makes laws official. The other head, the judicial branch, oversees the court system of the U.S. Through court cases, the judicial branch explains the meaning of the Constitution and laws passed by Congress. The Supreme Court is the head of the judicial branch.
The wings of the eagle also have significance.
The first wing is considered the problem solving wing, which wants to fulfill the needs of the people and create plans to solve problems. The second wing is called the conservation wing, and has the job of protecting the rights and freedoms of the people. The second wing looks at the first wing’s plans to determine if we can afford the plan, and if it encroaches on the people’s freedoms and rights.
If both wings do their job the eagle will fly straight and stay on course. If the first wing is not kept in check the eagle will veer off course towards tyranny (a form of government in which the ruler is an absolute dictator -not restricted by a constitution or laws or opposition etc.).
In contrast, if the first wing does not do its job and the second wing allows the people to do as the wish then the eagle will veer off towards anarchy (a state of lawlessness and disorder -usually resulting from a failure of government).
The idea is that if each wing fulfills its duty, then the eagle will fly straight and remain in the center of the power-spectrum (tyranny on the extreme left and anarchy on the extreme right). But if either wing falls asleep on the job, then the eagle will fly to one of the extremes of the spectrum, resulting in the end of freedom.
‘WE THE PEOPLE’ need to keep the eagle from turning too far left or too far right. This is why we need to protect the US Constitution and vote for Presidential Candidates that share the principles that make America great: Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
I acquired the information about the three headed eagle from the ‘must read’ book – The 5000 Year Leap. by W. Cleon Skousen. This book outlines the methods and ideals our founding fathers used to build this great nation.
