If we accept that the Constitution is valid because of the Will of the People who exercised their right to self-determination in founding the nation, then we must ask ourselves a question. Should the people will that the government should take a form other than that described in the Constitution, does the Constitution remain valid? If the people will that the Constitution should serve as a loose guide and not as the binding and authoritative document as it was originally intended, does the Law of the Land thaty was written by our forefathers outweigh the Will of the People today? After all, is not eh very principle of the Consent of the Governed that the People are the ultimate arbiter of the role of the State and what limits should be placed upon it? I can already here some objecting that this is not an unfettered democracy, but a republic, and here is my question in response: Is not the republic itself made valid by the consent of the governed and the will of the masses? Is the republic, then, not merely a facade placed upon an underlying democracy in which the People wish to appeal to a law thatonly exists so long as the will of the mob is to obey it?
