The Major Principles of the US Constitution

You may have heard a lot about the US Constitution, especially if you are up to date with Senate hearings or those supporting a specific political action in America. But what is a constitution? What is its purpose?

Defining the US Constitution
The US Constitution is a body or set of fundamental principles that serve as a legal guide as to how the government should govern the entire nation. These also include every civil and human rights article. In other words, the US Constitution is the supreme law of the United States of America.

The Major Principles

Some of the major principles that you can find in the Constitution include:

  • No one is above the law.

    Whether you are the president of the richest person in the country, you are not exempted from following the law. This means that you should always follow what the law is saying.

    Furthermore, everyone is in equal footing before the law. No one is poor nor rich. Anyone who violates the law shall be punished accordingly.

  • There are three branches of government.

    These are the executive, legislative, and judicial branches. Each branch has specific functions. The executive for executing the laws, legislative for making the laws, and judicial for settling disputes. The separation of powers ensures checks and balances within the US government.

  • Government authority can change by amending the Constitution.

    Times change. The Constitution is flexible that amendments can be made to address the current times.
