How our government protects against it
Separation of powers
Executive, enforce laws- appoint judges and make treaties.
Legislative, approve judges, approve budgets.
Judicial desides meaning of laws -judicial reviw
Checks and balances
They check to make sure each branch has equal power. They make sure no branch has more power than others.
The great compromise
Senate had one vote per state with equal representation. House of Representatives had votes based on their population with proportional representation.
