President must have been elected by Electoral college, be 35 or older, and had it's birth in U.S.A. The powers include: ability to enforce laws, Commander of the chief of military, appoints/receives ambassador, arranges peace treaties, chooses judges and federal officials, and grants S.O.T.U.
  • Judicial Branch explanation: the Supreme Court is the greatest court includes nine justices who serve until death), and lower Courts (were made by Congress).Powers are: The final voice
  • (Last one)Procedure of the decision for the adoption of the Constitution: Every year the states hold a convention that consists of delegates, when 9/13 states approve the Constitution it would become active, and this is the only article that is not in use in this era.

They created a balance of six principles in a system of government which strengthens but also set limits to federal government.
