That, that is, Is, that, that is not, is not. So What Is Constitutionality? What Can We Do?
So what is Our Constitution and how does it work, why do we have it, and most importantly Why Do We Care? The easy way to explain the Constitution is to say it is a Contract, similar to a Marriage Licence. Before Marriage you are just living together, After Marriage you become a Family. Likewise, before this contract was ratified by the 13 Colonies, Colonial Government was represented as an extension of the English government.
Summary: The role of the Governor was extremely important in Colonial Government, he was the representative of the King. The 13 Colonies were governed and ruled by England and its monarchs. In order to rule the colonies from a long distance, a governor was appointed by the monarch.
The role of the Governor was to oversee the colony and was the head of the colonial administration. The governor was in charge of laws, taxes and made decisions which affected the colony. The role of the governor was extremely powerful - he was in charge of colonial government which meant he had to fulfil various political duties.
To help him in his role he had the authority to appoint various government officials. He had the power to convene, or dissolve the legislature. He also had the power to veto any of its laws. He had command of the militia so was able to enforce Colonial Government policies.
Colonists considered themselves to be British citizens, but the colonies were not treated the same as citizens living in England. As war with England became imminent, the colonies first made their complaints known to King George in the Declaration of Independence. In this petition, the leaders of the First Continental Congress expressed issues the colonists felt were oppressive.
This all sounds quite a bit like Todays World, does it Not?

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
