We were never intended to have a one-size-fits-all. We were largely to govern ourselves, but the government we were to have was to be as close to us as possible. So that we could throw them out whenever they stepped outside of their boundaries. The further government is from you, the less control you have over it.
But, our founders warned us that we had to stay knowledgeable and involved, in order to keep the republic that they established. They also stated that this form of government would only work with a moral people. Something we have little of anymore.
If you haven't yet watched Brexit: the Movie, I highly recommend it. It's on youtube.
