The system of check and balances was included to the constitution too?
Yes it is in the constitution.
Why did the framers of the constitution include a system of checks and balances in the Constitution?
Why do you think the framers of the constitution included the ability of congress to override a veto?
The Constitution does. The government makes laws and enforces them but the constitution actually protects individual's rights. The US is a constitutional federated republic. The government is kept in check by the constitution. Without the checks and balances that the constitution provides, the government could take away all rights of the people, controlling all they say and do. A government without checks and balances usually ends in dictatorship.
The Constitution of the United States created a system of separate institutions that share powers. Because the three branches of government share the powers, each branch can partially check the powers of the others. Example: the Congressds can check the president by refusing to pass a bill the president wants. The president can check Congress by vetoing a bill that has passed both Houses. The Courts can check the Congress by declaring a law unconstitutional.
How does the supreme court ability to amend the constitution informally serve as a check and balance on the other branches of government?
The purpose of the checks and balances system is to ensure that one arm of the government system does not hold too much power. Each branch will have the power to check whatever the other branch is doing. Without this kind of system, one branch will become too powerful thereby rendering the other powerless.
Another name for the separation of powers that was written into the U.S. Constitution is the system of checks and balances. Dividing power into three government branches (Executive, Legislative, and Judicial) creates a system where each has the ability to keep a "check" on the power of the other two so that one person or group doesn't gain full control of the government.
The constitution keeps the power evenly distributed between the three branches of government by using a system of checks and balances. This basically means that if one branch is exceeding the limits of power, another branch can "check" it. For example; if a president (the executive branch) is gaining too much power and enacting unfair laws, congress (the legislative branch) can vote to impeach the president or something like that and "check" the president's power…
Separation of Power vests the powers of the Government into multiple entities that are more or less autonomous of one another. In the United States, the Constitution separates the power of the Federal Government into three branches. The Legislature, the Executive, and the Judiciary. The system of checks and balances is how the branches make sure that one branch does not gain too much power over the other. Each branch has "checks" over the other…
