Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 The constitution And how it guards against tyranny 1. Federalism Federalism is the idea of powers shared between the state government and national government. While the state government deals with citizen rights and laws like marriage, the national government deals with bigger stuff like going to war. This guards against tyranny because even if an individual or group managed to take over one government, they would only be able to do so much without needing control the other government.2. Seperation of powersSeparation of powers is when no one individual or group is given too much power, but instead it is spread between as many people as possible. This way, no one individual could have enough power to become a tyrant.3. Checks and BalancesChecks and balances is when each branch of government limitsthe others power 4. Big states vs. Small states Federalism: federalism is power shared between the state governments and the national government. The state government deals withcitizen issues like marriage, while the national government deals with issues like war and foreign relations. Seperation of powers: this is the idea that each individual has as little power as possible,so no one person or group couldhave enough power to becomea tyrant Checks a d balances: each branch has a way to checkthe power of another,so no one brach can become too powerful. Big states vs small states: There are two houses of congress, one with equal representation,and one with proportional. This makes it so even if a big state has lots of power in the house of representatives, they won't be overly piwerful in the senate
