Restriction of Government Power- In order to guard against what one of the Founding Fathers called an excess of democracy the Constitution was built with many ways to limit the governments power Among these methods were separating the three branches splitting the legislature so laws passed are carefully considered and requiring members of Congress to meet certain criteria to qualify for office Separation of power was very effective The three branches of government executive legislative and judicial are kept separate and each has different powers Congress has legislative or law making powers the President has the power to carry out or execute the laws and the Judicial branch had the judging power used to interpret the laws In addition each branch is able to restrain or balance the powers of the other two branches upon power abuse If the President is suspected of unlawful acts he can be impeached or tried by the House and Senate for misusing his power If he is found guilty he can be thrown out of office unless two thirds of Congress agrees with a treaty he proposes Furthermore if the President wants to spend money his request must pass through Congress since it has control over spending Lastly Congress can re-pass a vetoed bill Congress also has checks and balances against itself The president can veto a bill from Congress and although Congress can override a veto obtaining a two-thirds vote is very difficult Public speeches by the President may also concern the public with an issue putting pressure on Congress to act upon it The limitations on and difficulties of law passing are very very important The split legislature creates a more complicated maze through which laws must find their way before being passed
