What did the constitution do in a country

First, the Constitution guards us from tyranny by diving powers between the central and state governments. Secondly, the Constitution guards us from tyranny by dividing the branches of government. Thirdly, the Constitution guards us from tyranny by using checks and balances. Lastly, the Constitution guards us from tyranny by having equal representation from all the states.

To sum it up, the framers of the constitution protected us from the terrible evil of tyranny using the four methods, Federalism, dividing the government into three branches, a system of checks and balances, and preventing large states from creating a tyranny over the small states in congress. James Madison said, “the accumulation of powers in the same hands, wether of one, a few, or many, is the very definition of tyranny” , and the constitution does a good job of preventing that.

The framers succeeded in creating a well built constitution because all four methods have created security that no tyrant, or tyranny would arise.
