Re-read article 1 of the U.S. Constitution. Laws can only be made by a congress of elected representatives. 

If the president can make law, it is a monarchy; if judges can make law, it is an oligarchy.

Section 1

All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.

The Constitution divides the federal government into three branches, giving legislative powers to a bicameral (two chamber) Congress

Preamble

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Explanation

The Preamble explains the purposes of the Constitution, and defines the powers of the new government as originating from the people of the United States.
