The Constitution enumerates the responsibilities of the executive, judicial and legislative branches of government.


By dividing up the government into 3 separate parts, the Constitution very cleverly made any 2 parts of our government watchdog over the 3rd. For example, only the legislative can make laws, only the judiciary can uphold those laws and define them relative to the constitution, and the executive has the power to veto any law brought to him for ratification.
