  • FEDERALISM
  • Do not invade our land or this means war!!
  • FEDERALISM
  • I don't agree! I think that article related to much later times in the US!
  • I believe this article protects the right to bare arms!
  • That Law will not pass; I veto that Law!
  • Federalism actually describes a system of government where some powers belong to the national government, and some powers belong to the state government.
  • Separation of Powers
  • That law is Unconstitutional! You cannot write that Law that way.
  • Congress: We created a new law and everyone will follow it!
  • In the United States, the federal government has the power to regulate trade between states, declare war, manage the mail, and print money—among several other powers.
  • Seperation of powers
  • Were the Legislative branch. We make all of the laws and pass them through to the executive to be cleared.
  • Were the Executive branch and we have the power to veto laws and execute them. The president and the government are part of this branch
  • Federalism is the oldest form of government in the United States. The Constitution and its many articles was written by the founding Fathers so that it would last forever. It is open to interpretation making it flexible for years to come. Federalism's AMBIGUITY has contributed to its longevity.
  • Seperattion of Powers
  • The power of the Executive Branch is vested in the President of the United States, who also acts as head of state and Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces. The President is responsible for implementing and enforcing the laws written by Congress and, to that end, appoints the heads of the federal agencies, including the Cabinet. The Vice President is also part of the Executive Branch, ready to assume the Presidency should the need arise.
  • What is the seperation of powers you may ask? Our founding fathers didn't want one branch of government to have too much power, so they created three branches that would keep each other in check! Three different nranches all with different powers.
  • We are the Judicial branch and we interpret the laws. The state judges are elected by the citizens rather than being appointed.
  • The Separation of Powers is actually part of the Checks and Balances system. This system provides each branch of the government with each of their own individual powers, but making sure to check the other branches so that they don't get too powerful.
