The federal government is composed of three
distinct branches: executive (president),
legislative (Congress), and judicial (federal
courts).
- Executive-Enforces Legislative's laws.
- Legislative-Creates new laws.
- Judicial-Interpret Legislative's laws.
To prevent one branch from abusing its
respective powers, all three branches must

misbehaves, the other two branches can act to
correct the faulted one.
