“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-


            The quotation stated by Abraham Lincoln above is actually relevant with the Declaration of Independence. It shown by the words “We The People” which is represent all people in America. But in this case I try to understand the quotation above as a quote relate to the Congress System in United States of America. Trough the sentence “We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts…” we can learn that House of Representative in Congress’ authority is based on people’s mandate. It means that House of Representative in their duty is representing people’s benefit. Not only represent people’s benefit but also struggle. As the Abraham Lincoln stated that people are the rightful masters of Congress, in the democracy system this is what should happen that people have rights to struggle their benefit to House of Representative who is indeed their representative.

            House of Representative equal to MPR and DPR in Indonesia. MPR and DPR are also supposed to struggle their people’s benefit. But it’s been critics to MPR and DPR in Indonesia that they do their duty unwell. They still can’t represent the people in Indonesia and it caused too many excessive protests from people especially the lower ones that are feeling aggrieved. It shows that the democracy system in Indonesia still doesn’t implement very well.

            It comes to suggestion that for well implementation of democracy, the way of democracy should be applied well too. Maybe America has been applied the democracy system very well so Indonesia can classicize it. But this suggestion is actually for both states that America should be maintain the good-work of applying democracy system and Indonesia should fix its application of democracy system for more prosperous nation in the future.
