Posted by Cheryl on Friday, October 22, 2010 at 11:17am.

The Constitution establishes rules that the United States government must observe. There are five main principles that form the basis of these rules and ensure our democratic government. In a minimum of three well-developed paragraphs, list, define, and discuss each of these principles. Include a present day example for each one that shows how our government today is or is not obeying each principle.


The Five main principles of our government are:

-Consent of the governed—People are the source of any and all governmental power.

- Limited government—Government is not all-powerful and may do only those things people have given it the power to do.

-Rule of law—The government and those who govern are bound by the law.

-Democracy—In a democratic system of government the people rule.

-Representative government—In a representative system of government people elect public officeholders to make laws and conduct government on their behalf.
