If We the People are the power, why do we need any permission from the GOV our servants to do anything?
Does a master ask there servant permission?
Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the govern.—That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organize its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for street light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolish the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them lower than absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their adjectives security.

Youre looking at it all wrong. Those public servants are just that. They are representative of adjectives the other people who live close to you. They know whats going to infringe on those peoples rights. You must have been missing during civics class. English class, too, for that matter.
