Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 The Four Ways the Constitution Guards Against Tyranny Federalism Separation of Powers Big States Vs. Small States Checks and Balances Federalism is Madison's governmental idea to split the power between the central government and state governments. Federalism provides "double-security" to the people because it allows the two different governments to check the powers of the others. Federalism guards against tyranny because it prevents the central government or state governments from taking total control over the people and the nation. Separation of Powers was a result of Madison's thinking that if one group or person got all the power in government, it would result in tyranny. Each branch has a primary job: the legislature makes the law, the executive enforces the law, and the judicial branch interprets the law. The a Separation of Powers guards against tyranny because it prevents a group or person from doing whatever they want to the nation and government. Checks and Balances was made to primarily divide the different branches in such a way that they would be able to "check on each other." Each branch can check another branches powers. The House can impeach the president, the president will nominate judges to the Supreme Court, and the Supreme Court can decide a law is unconstitutional and not pass it. Checks and balances guard against tyranny by making sure the branches are equally powerful and that the different branches are able to limit the powers of the other branches if they are getting too powerful. The Great Compromise solved a big issue relating to populated states and less populated states. The House of Representatives is based on population, which makes the larger states happy because they have more representation in the government; The Senate makes the small tap and hold to change this header text! states happy because they all have an equal vote in the Senate. This small state-large state compromise guards against tyranny because it prevents the more populated/ larger states from overpowering the less populated/ smaller states.
