Civics 101

The geniuses who wrote our original constitution intentionally designed a system with power divided many ways. Between the federal government and the states. Among Congress, the executive, and the judicial. Between the House and the Senate. Between “factions” (parties).

They did this to prevent tyranny concentrated in one power center.

Do Americans understand this?
