Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 How The Constitution Protected Against Tyranny: Federalism: You need to give each government different, but equal powers. Doing this will show the central and state governments that they are equally powerful. For example, one power given to the states is establishing schools and one power given to the central government is setting up post offices. These are both big things to do and seem equally important. Checks and Balances: Don't forget to check and balance each other. This means that each government should be able to check the other governments to make sure they don't have to much power.They check each other by agreeing or disagreeing with something the government has done. Without checking and balancing the governments would all have different powers and there might even be tyranny. Having checks and balances makes sure that all governments have equal powers and that no government is too powerful. Equal Representation: Remember to give each state equal representation. So for every 30,000 thousand people the state gets one representative. And even if the state has less than 30,000 thousand people they still get one representative. Doing this will let the smaller states still have a say in the government. This makes sure that the smaller and larger states are equal and that no state is more powerful than another. If we didn't have this one state could have become the tyrant of the country. Separation of Powers: Finally you have to separate all the powers. So the legislative branch makes laws, the executive branch enforces laws, and the judicial branch interprets laws. This protects against tyranny because the three branches will have different responsibilities, so they will acknowledge all the problems. This will make everyone happy. By:Juliette Lana
