It doesn't fit with the delegation idea.
How can the People delegate the power to make law when they don't possess this power themselves?
Can I make rules for YOU to live by, or you to make me live by?
Of course not.
So how can we delegate this to a legislature?
Thus this power is illegitimate and must go.
If there is no legislative, there is no need for an executive.
This leaves us with the judicial power - what government is really limited to - securing inalienable rights.
This doesn't even need a large apparatus as we have now.
It likely doesn't even need permanent courts.
And it can be handled nearly entirely on the local level, save what perhaps might be needed to handle interstate or international disputes.
