Some of the 15 major departments are the Secretary of State, The Secretary of Treasury and The Secretary of Defense

Judicial Natalie Calman
Judicial has the supreme court
The members are assigned by the president and approved by the Senate
Court deals with the big problems
Article 3 of the constitution started the judicial branch
The Congress has the capacity to insert courts to the Supreme Court.
Judges and justices can't drop out of their responsibilities-until death, or retirement, or the Senate obligates them to move them out of their position.
There are 9 Justices
The judges get chosen to be judges by getting elected by the public or assigned by the goverment
Bill of Rights Isabella Mora
The Bill of Rights is an arrangement of the first ten amendments to the Constitution of the U.S.A. The Bill of Rights restrains the U.S government from having much power. James Madison drafted the Bill of Rights. It was finished in 1791. It included multiple rights of everyone in America. They were given the freedom of speech, the press, assembly, and religion.Individuals can bear arms, and no unusual or cruel punishment. You can't be accused twice for the same mistake, and many other amendments. Everyone should have the same equal rights as anyone else, which brings me to Democracy.
