How Did the Constitution Guard Against Tyranny?
Transcript of How Did the Constitution Guard Against Tyranny?
The senate is composed of two senators from each state chosen by the legislatures. Each senator gets one vote so its fair and equal. Even though big states and small states both get two senators, it is still fair because each state will get equal representation. Checks and Balances The constant aim is to divide and arrange the several offices so they are a check on each other. The three branches should not be so far separated as to have no constitutional control over each other. They should all work together and have their own special jobs. They support each other and our government needs each and every branch to run the government sufficiently. Resolution Constitution How Did the Constitution Guard Against Tyranny?
