The Constitution

How does the Constitution limit the Powers of Government?

Through Separation of Powers, Federalism, and Checks and Balances

1. Separation of Powers 2. Federalism 3. Checks and Balances

Legislative Branch, Executive Branch, and Judicial Branch of Governments

We Have a Strong Central Government for The Separation of Powers Which is How Our government Is Set Up. They Each have Their own Powers. This Limits the Power of Government because of the Power that is split up between the Three Branches.


Federalism is the Principle or System of Government. This Limits them Power of Government because the Power is split between The States and the National Powers. They do have Powers that are Shared between Both of Them.

Checks and Balances

Checks and Balances is where There is Three Branches of Government and so they Check each other to make sure that no Branch has more Power than the Other. Each Branch wants to be Equal and Balanced with the Weight of Power. This Limits the Power of government because it allows one Branch to overrule Another Branch that Acts Inappropriately.
