This attitude stems from a lack of understanding of why our govt was formulated, not as a democracy, but a republic with the weakest branch being the presidential branch —intentionally. It has also led to more weight being placed on presidential elections as if one man holds all this power. Well, that there, is also due to too much powers taken by presidents. They don't, or are not supposed to even craft legislation. That power was usurped starting with Wilson a progressive. It's just not our form of govt.
That is BS.

The Consitution is impressive, but the notion that it is some perfect document is garbage. The mere fact that it was written at a time when some people weren't considered people is evidence of that.
