In a democracy, the Ruler’s source of power is the people.

The representatives have the legitimacy of the popular vote to make decisions on behalf of their representatives, the people.

“We, the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, guarantee inner tranquility, promote common defense, general well-being, and secure the benefits of freedom for ourselves and our descendants, promulgated and established the Constitution for the United States of America”.
