The Articles of Confederation
The Government Branches
The government has checks and balances. This is needed because the government cant get too much power. The president can veto a bill but congress can take a vote and turn the bill into a law. The government also uses these to keep the other branches form gaining too much power. Checks and balances also help to keep the government running smoothly.
The Bill of Rights
The government can be changed by the people. But the people cant change every thing about the government. But the people play a big part in it. The people can vote for the people they want to be in the government. Such as the president, and congress members. This is handy because the people need to have a government they like. people can also suggest things to the government like if you think there should traffic lights where there isn't.
