Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 How the U.S.A stops Tryanny! By: Dylan Thompson The Great Compromise The Great Compromise During the Constitutional Convention, there were two main plans suggested. Instead of picking between the two, the delegates combined them to form the great compromise. Each state received 2 senates no matter the size or population. Each state would receive a certain amount of representatives for the House of Representatives, This makes it so each person gets equal representation and the larger states don't overpower the smaller states. Federalism In the summer of 1787, the delegates were arguing over how much power the state and central government should have. At the time, the state government had too much power and the central government was too weak. After days of debating, the delegates came to a consensus. The states and the government would pass taxes. The central government would control the laws and declare war while each state would handle more of the personal issues in its state by building schools and setting up local governments, So basically, the delegates gave a lot more power the central government. This stops Tryanny because instead of one government getting all of the power, they divided it between state and national government so one can't totally overpower the country Separation of Powers After the delegates had decided to get rid of the Articles of Confederation, they had to create a new government. One of the main worrys of the new government was that people didn't want a Tryanny. If they were to place all of the power into one branch, there could be a tyrant. So they decided to make 3 branches instead. They would have the executive branch, which would enforce the laws. Then they would have the judicial branch, which controls the Supreme Court and can declare laws unconstitutional. The legislative branch creates the laws and holds elections to vote for the laws. These three branches spread the power so there won't be overpowered branches in the government. That means that there won't be any Tryanny When the delegates set up the central government, they made it so each branch can check each other. The executive branch checks the legislative branch by vetoing laws passed. The legislative can check the executive by overpowering vetoes. The judicial branch can check the legislative branch by declaring laws unconstitutional. There are many other ways that the branches check each other, but the point is, the branches check each other and have equal powers. This stop Tryanny because if one branch does something that could be an act of tyranny, the other branches can stop the tyranny acts with checks and balances. tap and hold to change this title text!
