All Americans should be able to provide a definition for the U.S. government’s balance of power. The founding fathers wisely divided the government’s power both vertically and horizontally as a way to protect its citizens from tyranny.
“[America’s balance of power] was a genius idea from our founders,” says Michele Bachmann, former member of the U.S. House of Representatives. “What it says is this: We can’t trust any one person with power. … They saw how dangerous it was to concentrate all power in one individual, and so they divided power. They understood human nature.”
Bachmann explains and gives a definition for America’s balance of power in this insightful video. She explains:
• How America balances its power horizontally from local to state to federal government.
• How America balances its power vertically with the executive, the legislative and the judicial branches of government
• The overall responsibility of each branch of government
• Why it takes all branches and levels working together to make the U.S. government work
• The need for each branch to remember its role and not veer away from it
• Why America’s form of government is so strong.
