We have changed our view.  The Constitution starts with the legislative branch (see Article I of the Constitution), not the executive branch.  However, no branch of government has final authority.  Nevertheless, if any branch of government were to have final authority, it would have to be the legislative branch since it most likely would come closest to doing the will of ALL the people.
