Why not a wedge for a fork mount instead of a GEM mount?

Hi there:

I am a noob. Sorry. I cannot understand why a fork mount on a wedge would not work as well as a German Equatorial Mount. Seems like I am the only one with this question though it has probably been answered a thousand time. I just cannot find it.

Thank you.
