"Our safety, our liberty, depends upon preserving the Constitution of the United States as our fathers made it inviolate. The people of the United States are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts; not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution."   -- Abraham Lincoln




From the quotation above we could say that people in America –according to Abraham Lincoln- has the sovereignty and power of the governmental. They are just represented by the people who they elect to be in the position of senate and representative. By be represented, they have the control on the both of congress and constitution. So if the house of senate and house of representative are deviating, they might protest them to be back in the right way. This kind of right is guaranteed as the liberty and freedom are the fundamental values of United States. Besides, the laws that made by congress are also being watched by the people. And because of the congress function is also to control the government policy, therefore it could be said that people in general are also controlling the government. The point is the legislature could criticize them by people because they are elected by people. That is the main constructions of American political system, which is democracy, and what is expected by all Americans.
