We dont let small children play with sharp knives, loaded guns, or near the top banks of cliffs. They havent learned the consequences of their actions. They arent responsible. Yet.
You might think that politicians, who are adults, shouldnt be treated the same way. But power tends to corrupt, and we know even more about that, today, than our Founding Fathers did. And they knew enough not to let politicians do just anything they wanted. They put constitutions in place, to limit politicians purview and power.
