Separation of Powers
Divided into legislative, executive and judicial powers
Legislative Branch carries The House of Representatives and The Senate, makes laws
Executive Branch carries The President of the United States, enforces laws
Judicial branch carries The Suprem Court, interprets laws
Checks and Balances
The president can veto the law and bring it back to the legislative branch
Once the president signs the bill, the bill becomes a law
Refer to the liberties of each individual to pursue life
The right to life, liberty and freedom, the pursuit of happiness, live your life free of discrimination
