The president certainly has made laws, via executive order. Not that he respects or follows the constitution anyway. Further, we don't live in a democracy, we live in a constitutional republic with somewhat democratically elected officials. A democracy is mob rule, 2 wolves and a lamb deciding what's for lunch. A democracy is not, contrary to popular belief, a civilized society. That's why we have a constitution. We, the people, have rights that the government must recognize and have no authority to violate. Laws must not conflict with the constitution, or they are invalid, and it does not take a Supreme Court ruling to decipher what the constitution says. It is written in plain language so a reasonably educated person can read and understand it.
Earn our rights? Then that would not be rights at all, that would be privileges. What would one have to do to earn the right against unlawful search and seizure? Or earn the right to peaceable assembly. I don't really think that's the world you really want to live in.
