Storyboard Text

  • Popular Sovereignty and Individual Rights
  • All people also have some basic rights that cannot be taken away from them.
  • Political power now rests with the people, and the people only.
  • Yay! Long live the US!
  • Separation of Powers 
  • The three branches share power. Congress creates the laws, the President enforces them, and the Supreme Court interprets them.
  • Hmmmm..... Interesting!
  • Checks and Balances
  • But, each branch must check the others in case they become too powerful
  • Come on!
  • Also, political power is shared between the state and national governments. 
  • Federalism
  • So, we have the good parts from the Articles and a centralized government? Amazing!
  • When voting, the people vote on representatives who make and enforce the laws. The common people do not have to do decide on any laws themselves.
  • Republicanism
  • Thank goodness for that, because I'm a very slow decision maker!
  • Lastly, the president only has as much power as what is given to him by the Constitution, and nothing more. 
  • Limited Government
  • So don't even think about it!
  • Ok, Ok I won't turn the US into a monarchy!
