4 ways to prevent Tyranny

By Tasker Peacock

Federalism

Federalism is the division of powers over the national government and the state government. The state government helps set up schools, hold local elections, establish local government, pass marriage and divorce laws, and regulate in-state businesses. The national government has powers conduct foreign relations, provide a military, declare war, make immigration laws, regulate war, and establish post offices. Both have share powers such as tax, borrow money, set up courts, make laws, and enforce laws.

Little states vs. Big states

Make sure all people have a say in government. Make sure no state is left out. Have two different legislative power, for example a congress and senate. Make sure the state and the people in the state have a say in what they think is best. The small states and large states will have a equall say in one legislative branch and the people will have the power in another. Each branch should have a members who are elected by the people so that they keep a democracy.

Some U.S leaders who have helped prevent Tyranny in our nation.

Checks and balances

Checks and Balances is a major part of tyranny. Checks and Balances helps make sure no single branch of government has to much power. For example the Judicial branch can check the Legislative branch or the Executive branch. This is put into place to help make sure that no single person has power over the country.

Separation of powers

The separation of powers is used to make sure that the government stays on track and doesn't become a monarchy or a dictatorship. It also helps keep the government jobs small and keep them more to the point allowing for a better run country.
