When our Founding Fathers wrote the US Constitution and established the three separate branches of government, they believed it would insure the survival of the newly formed republic. Most of the power of the federal government was placed in the hands of Congress which was supposed to represent and do the will of the people.

The least powerful of the three branches was the judicial branch whose sole purpose was to make sure that the Constitution was legally observed.

The executive and judicial branches have both assumed far more power than the Constitution allows and in many ways both have become dictatorial.
