The President heads the executive branch of Government in the Presidential system of Government. The President draws his power from the fact that he has been placed in office by the people. He is their representative and responsible for his actions to the people. It is one of the basic tenants in democracy that the people are administered and ruled by their own representatives; for the people, of the people and by the people. In a democracy the military has no place in politics. It is however necessary for the party of the President to hold the majority in Congress to get their laws passed. Public opinion in the United States is of significant value to the President. In actual fact in every society, government is the body that monopolizes force and enforces its order in the interest of those who are actually in power.
