Does the constitution control the government?

The constitution sets down how the US government will work. It does, in a manner of speaking 'control' the government, for it has all the laws, but it is more the base for the government, since it can be amended. It isn't the government itself. There are many ways of thinking about the constitution--a base, a way to control something, etc. In my opinion, there is no real 'controller' of the US government, since it was set up just because of that; to make sure that there is equal balance between all branches. The closest thing to a controller is the president--but he is more of a leader than that. Hope this helps! (If you like this answer, please give me a trust point) Isabella246

Why do you have branches of government?

The branches are government are set up to make sure that the government does not abuse it's power. Each branch of the government is set up so that they "check" each branch. Each branch is given certain powers, and they all work together to create and enforce laws. The founders of the Constitution wanted to make sure that a dictatorship did not emerge in the U.S., so they created the branches of government to ensure that one branch did not take complete control of the country.
