How the Constitution limits the Governments power
Checks and Balances
The Constitution also limits the governments power through a system called checks and balances. They use checks and balances to make sure each branch stays within its given limits also called powers.
How it is still important today
It is still important today because without limits one branch would have all the power and that branch can do whatever they want. It would be a Tyranny without the Constitutional limits and they would be able to control us and make whatever kind of laws they want. That is why it is still important today.
