Articles of Confederation
The Different Branches of Government
1. The Legislative Branch: The branch that has the power to make and/or break laws.
2. The Judicial Branch: A system of courts, would apply and interpret the laws.
3. The Executive Branch: Carries out or executes the laws.
Checks and Balances would do just that, it would keep the 3 branches in check and would also keep the power of the 3 balanced.
