    Americans need a civics lesson. And so do politicians. Of all the wrong and delusional thinking about the US Constitution the one that is most thoroughly incorrect and routinely used for political propaganda purposes is that there are three coequal branches of the federal government.

    It seems like the founding fathers meant to give the presidency some considerable power, as the Veto power is given to the president directly by the constitution. The veto power is a sizable check on the power of the congress.

    the power of the supreme court to decide whether a law is constitutional is essential, even if it's not directly enumerated. Without it, who would make the determination that a given law was in violation of the constitution? It is obvious by the way the bill of rights is written that it's intention is to restrict the laws the congress can create. Whose responsibility should it be to determine whether a law goes against the constitution? congress's?

    It was supposed to be every branches responsibility to decide whether something was unconstitutional, and the individual states were supposed to be able to make that decision as well.
