The arttoney generals office.in other words ,the law and it includes the constitution of the country.

ANSWER:

By far the legislative branch has the most power of the three branches. Article I of the US Constitution gives it numerous express powers to enable it to govern the country by legislation. In contrast, the judicial branch is by far the weakest of the three branches. It has no authority to act on its own volition. It may only act in cases and controversies, which means within the context of a lawsuit. Further it has no power to enforce its own judgments. It relies on the executive branch for that.

The system of checks and balances was never intended nor does it provide for equality of power among the three branches. It was simply the separation of the three basic functions of government (legislative, executive and judicial) into three separate branches so that no function could be abused. Checks and balances does not equalize the power of each branch. It provides a means by which one branch can stop another from trying to become more powerful than it is supposed to be.

With all respect to the first answer, the attorney general's office is not a correct answer, since that office is part of the executive branch as opposed to being a separate branch of government, which is what this question refers to.

Neither of the three. If the system is working correctly there is an equal balance of power between the branches. This system is known as "checks and balances".

Why is the legistative brunch the most important?

It's not. All three branches are equally important, like a stool with three legs, if you take one away it will not stand. The legislative branch passes laws but if the law is unconstitutional or not enforced it is useless at best and dangerous at worst. The Executive branch enforces the laws and the Judicial branch makes sure that it is constitutional. The founding fathers knew what they were doing! There is no better system of government yet created by man. God Bless America!
