After seeing how powerful rulers changed the "rules" to fit their whims, the designers of the US Constituion wanted a written law that could not be changed without the input of the people.
So the laws come form represnative bodies, with limited power in the executive.
The supreme Court was given the power to determine if a law conforms to the constituion.
