The Constitution

Tori and Jordon

A brief summary

The constitution was created so that we could strengthen our national government. Because of economic troubles, and a weak central government, we needed a stronger government that can raise an army, collect taxes and print money and make standard rules in each state.

3 major points

Because of the Constitution, the government was divided into 3 parts. Each of the three parts were called branches. The first branch was the legislative branch who are the people who create the laws, like the Senate and the House of Representatives. The second branch is the executive branch which are the people that enforce the laws, such as the police, and the military. The president falls into this branch. The last branch is the judicial branch, it is the people who interpret the laws,

Another main idea for this document is, federalism, which is the relationship between the State and Federal government v the States Rights.
