Separation of Powers: Framework for Freedom

The United States Constitution sets out a system of national government with three branches—legislative (Congress), executive (President), and judicial (Supreme Court). The Constitution vests important functions in each of the branches, meaning it gives them separate, distinct powers. These three branches share power, and each branch serves as a check of power on the others. The principles of separation of powers and checks and balances provide a framework for freedom. Yet, this framework is not self-executing. We the people must continually act to ensure that our constitutional democracy endures, preserving our liberties and advancing our rights.
