Library Research Assignment

The U.S. Constitution provides a series of checks and balances between the 3 branches of government. Using the textbook and CTU library to find 2 recent journal articles, respond to the following statement:

  • The balance of powers in government is off; unelected judges are taking on the powers of the legislative and executive branches, using judicial opinions to establish new laws and usurping the powers granted to the voters elected representatives.
    • Is this argument valid? Why or why not?
    • How would you adjust the system of checks and balances? Why?
