If I may... originally, the House was the voice of the people, and had the most power. The Senate was to help balance the power between the larger and smaller states.
The Chief Executive, i.e., the President, was to execute the will of the people, as expressed by the legislative branch.
The Supreme Court was to serve in an advisory capacity to both the Congress and the President, as to the Constitutionality of the bills entered or passed by the Congress.
Note, I said an advisory capacity
. If the Congress and the President chose to overlook (ignore) the OPINION of the Court, they could do so.
The Court NEVER had the final say on anything... they originally met in the BASEMENT of one of the other governmental buildings, as they had no digs of their own!
It was the power of the people, expressed through Congress, executed by the President, and an advisory Court as to the Constitutionality of the laws being considered, passed and emplaced.
Here, in MA, the home of such ideas, our state constitution begins with the peoples' rights, as given by God, the power of the General Assembly, then the authority of the Executive, i.e., the Governor, and finally, a few paragraphs detailing the advisory
role of the state supreme judicial court, which was to be taken into account, whenever requested, to pass a constitutional opinion on a legislative matter... which the legislature (power of the people) could take under advisement, or overlook!!!
My, how far we have strayed!!!
