To me the key is representation - as long as that representation accurately reflects the wishes of it's constituents there is no practical basis in revolution.
The problem with this is if a majority of the population wishes to curtail your rights are you ok with that.

The problem with your proposition is that tyranny can very well come from a majority view point. The founding fathers were well aware of the tyranny of the majority and parts of the constitution reflect it.
