Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
system of checks and balances is one of the strengths that the US constitution
has and by extension the US government since it was formed. This system is
tasked with ensuring that the three branches of the government are limited in
power and none of them becomes too powerful (the balance) the checks system
ensues that decisions within the government are not made lightly. The greatest
weakness that the constitution has is that it has the capacity to be
interpreted depending on the convenience of the current society. The courts have
perpetuated corruption based on their interpretation of the constitution which
presents a threat to both liberty and constitution.
checks and balances strength can be maintained by ensuring that no government
branch wields much power to set the agenda for the running of the country. The vagueness of the constitution and its
subsequent interpretation can be improved by looking at the constitution as a
tool that divides and unifies the US as a nation. If amendments are made to
rally the interpretation towards a certain side, the amendments will be in
someone’s interest. It is only good that the constitution is vague in its
general language to show opposing points that they get what they want and
