Our forefathers set up the Checks and Balances system. The three branches of government. The Legislative, Executive, and Judicial. Not one of them has more power than the other. It takes two of them to agree to overturn a decision. Even the President can not change a vote or an outcome of one of the other branches without approval of another branch.

It was the Founding Father's desire to have a government that was limited in power. If the government was able to judge the people, then the government would have a unchecked power. The government would be able to condemn, or aquit, anyone, regardless of whether it was right or not. The Founding Father's probably thought that a group of men, judging an individual, would hold each other acountable more so than the government alone, as the government by itself could be biased.

In a republican form of government, elected representatives are responsible for the government operation and are also responsible to those citizens who elected them.

The people would best be served by electing representatives who would uphold the framework of government set down in the Constitution.
