If they would have been listening to “We The People,” none of this would have ever taken place. If the “Checks & Balances” our forefathers left behind would have not been “adulterated” with, none of this would have ever happened.
They DO "listen" to We the People: it's called the Harris Poll. As far as actually allowing We the People to decide the major issues, well, H. Kissinger was quoted that We the People have no idea what the real issues are or how to run the government, therefore it falls to those who know . . .
I'm still waiting.
