Separation of Powers

By Jamie Mantilla

The Branches:

The branches of our government (legislative,executive and judicial branch) are able to check or limit each others powers making balance between them.Even though the government might be powerful the people are the ones with the real power;this is shown in the famous ''We the People'' phrase inside the Constitution.This relates to James Madison's quote ''You must first enable the government to control the governed;and in the next place to oblige it to control itself'' meaning the government limits the people's power, and then control it's power.
