Our Founding Fathers went to war to stop the tyrant King George III. The King had issued a series of Royal Decrees or Proclamations without receiving the consent of the people. The Colonists knew that the King was violating their rights and that the King was going to continue to do so as long as they remained silent.
After petitioning the King for many years for a redress of their grievances, the people finally decided to take action.
When the Founding Fathers wrote the Constitution, it was their intent to prevent the president from abusing their rights like the King had done. They prohibited him from creating his own laws by granting to Congress ALL legislative powers. Congress has allowed the presidents to circumvent the Constitution by allowing him to make his own laws without the consent of people.Details
