The US Constitution created a federal republic with checks and balances. What this means is that the Federal government consists of three major branches. The US Supreme Court. The Executive branch and the US Congress, the legislative branch.Each of these bodies helps prevent any one of the branches to gain too much power. Thus, the system of "checks and balances" checks the accumulation of power and balances the distribution of powers.
