Chapter 3, Section 1 An Outline of the Constitution The Constitution sets out the basic principles upon which government in the United States was built. The Constitution is a fairly brief document.

Government Amending the Constitution Article V Article VI Article VII Go To Section: National debts, supremacy of national law, and oaths of office Ratifying the Constitution 1 2 3 Chapter 3, Section 1 Three of the Basic Principles The principle of popular sovereignty asserts that the people are the source of any and all government
power, and government can exist only with the consent of the governed. The principle of limited government states that government is restricted in what it may do, and each individual has rights that government cannot take away. Separation of powers is the principle in which the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of government are three independent and coequal branches of government. Go To Section: 1 2 3 Chapter 3, Section 1 More of the Basic Principles Checks and balances is the system that allows the
legislative, executive, and judicial branches to check, or restrain, the actions of one another. The principle of judicial review consists of the power of a court to determine the constitutionality of a governmental action. Federalism is a system of government in which the powers of government are divided between a central government and several local governments. Go To Section: 1 2 3 Chapter 3, Section 1 SECTION 2

Go To Section: 1 2 3 Chapter 3, Section 3 Informal Amendment Processes Informal amendment is the process by which over time many changes have been made in the
Constitution which have not involved any changes in its written word. The informal amendment process can take place by: (1) the passage of basic legislation by Congress; (2) actions taken by the President; (3) key decisions of the Supreme Court; (4) the activities of political parties; and (5) custom.
