A sturdy constitution.

While we certainly have our problems and continue to suffer the fools that you choose to put in and keep in political office, we most likely live under the best governmental system the world has ever seen.

Here are some reasons why:

We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.
Abraham Lincoln
I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education. This is the true corrective of abuses of constitutional power.
Thomas Jefferson

 To live under the American Constitution is the greatest political privilege that was ever accorded to the human race.
Calvin Coolidge
