  • history -

    The forefathers wanted to spread the power around so that no one person or branch had all of the power. They were tired of kings who ruled everything.

    Therefore we have the legislative body that makes the laws. We have the executive branch that can veto a law and is responsible for enforcing laws. The judicial branch rules on controversies and determines if a law is constitutional.
