The federalists believe that the sovereignty of the people resided in which branch of government?

If the answer to this question is to be inferred from the contents of the US Constitution, there can be little doubt that the framers, who were all in this respect "federalists (lower-case "f")," placed the greatest power and the final authority in the Legislative Branch, our US Congress. At the time that the Constitution was presented to the public (SEP 1787), it was obvious that the bulk (so to speak) of Federal power lay with Congress. Since the number of section and paragraphs in a given article can be misleading, let's consider something more concrete. The copy-length - how long is each of the three articles dealing with the Federal Government's three branches - clearly shows where most of the framers' attention was focused and where most of the powers were specifically given. Based strictly upon the copy length of the first three articles, Article 3 (the Judicial Branch, the courts) composes just 10% and Article 2 (the Executive Branch-primarily the president) makes up only26%; a whopping 64% belongs to the Legislative Branch. Given that Gouveneur Morris and company wanted to be thrifty with their words, copy-length is a reliable gauge to determine the site of the framers' concentration. But the true measure of the framers' investment of power in the Congress is found in the manner in which the Congress can (at least in theory) dominate the other two branches; 2/3 of each chamber of Congress, a level of unity that is seldom reached, can override Presidential vetoes, impeach and remove any and all Federal officers (each chamber, the House and the Senate, can expel their own members by the "magic fraction" of 2/3), and the Senate can approve Presidential appointees and ratify treaties with foreign nations All of this lies outside the wide scope of issues upon which it can pass laws, some of which might create or abolish a Federal office. Today the US Supreme Court seems to hold the highest level of Constitutional power, and yet Congress determines the numbers of cases that can reach the high Court upon appeal. What's more, the Senate can refuse appointments to the Court and along with the House impeach (accuse) and convict (remove) the justices. The system of checks and balanced gives the Executive and Judicial Branches some power over Congress, but these checks are balanced by the fact that acting with 2/3 unity, the Congress has almost unimaginable power.
