The power of government is divided into three branches so that each one can focus on a specific task for which it was designed (making laws, enforcing laws, and judging laws).… However there is always a chance that one branch can become out of control and so there is the checks and balances system to keep each branch in control.
Montesquieu While Locke proposed separating government into a legislative branch that made law and an executive branch charged with implementing the law, Montesquieu added a…n independent judiciary to settle disputes that might arise between the two.
The framers wanted a separation of powers so that no one person or group would have complete control.
The framers were considered "the best people" in the country they wrote the Constitution and made sure Liberty was kept by keeping the country together and making it fair for …every free man. We hol these truths to be self evident that all men were created equal...
The Framers did so because of the power being shared they didn't want anything being unfair between powers,and they also didn't want to much power going somewhere specific bec…ause then it would effect people's rights against powers
The American Government System is shared powers because all of the branches have power over another branch. For example, The Congress (legislative) can make a law. Then it cou…ld go to the Supreme Court and they would say if the law was "Constitutional" or not. If it is not then it goes back to congress and they change the law to make it "Constitutional" after this is completed it goes back to the court and they can tell if it is "Constiitional" and if it is it goes to the President and he has the final say in if it becomes a law or not. He also enforces it. Just a little side note too. Everyone thinks that the President is the most powerful person in our government. But it is the Congress. Hope this helps.

So that one branch of governments powers would be opposed by the other branches of government. This distribution of power is the checks and balances that are built in the US C…onstitution.
Why did the framers create a federal system of government in which power is shared between the national and governments?
Because the Framers wanted the states to keep significant powers.
No power can assume the competence or functions of another power or can interfere with another power's business.
