Branches of Government
The American system of government is established by the United States Constitution, which provides for three separate but equal branches of government -- legislative, executive and judicial.

Together, these branches make, execute, and interpret the laws that govern our country. Because each branch has both individual and shared powers, each is accountable to the others.

This "checks and balances" system means that the balance of power in our government remains steady.
