The rule of law is the legal principle that law should govern a nation, as opposed to being governed by decisions of individual government officials. The principle that all people and institutions are subject to and accountable to the law that is fairly applied and enforced the principle of government by law. The rule of law limits the power of the government the restriction of the arbitrary exercise of power by subordinating it to well-defined and established laws. The rule of Law pertains to limited Government because the politicians are not above the law. The rule of law helps prevent any one branch from becoming too powerful and helps ensure that the United States of America does not become a monarchy. The three-branch branches of government will effectively assure citizens of a limited government. The three-branch system of our government makes to the guarantee of a limited government because it prevents any one branch from breaking the Constitution. The purpose of a constitution is to set forth the actual structure of the government. The duties and responsibilities of each department of government are described, and the relationship of the central government to state and local governments as well as to its citizens is explained. The systems of checks and balances are used to keep the government from getting too powerful in one branch. For example, the Executive Branch can veto bills from the Legislative Branch, but the Legislative can override the veto. The enumerated or expressed powers of the government are the powers of the federal government that are described in the Constitution that are also called “Delegated” or “Expressed powers”, they described how the three branches of government can work effectively together. There are a number of delegated or expressed powers, which are those directly assigned to the federal government. Some of these powers are coining money, making treaties with foreign nations, regulating interstate commerce, establishing voting privileges in keeping with the Constitution and particularly the Fourteenth Amendment, and enforcing the spirit and intent of the Bill of Rights. Based on these expressed powers, the federal government also has implied powers, which are those reasonably implied by the delegated powers. For example, Congress has not been given the right to print paper money, but it has assumed that power based on its delegated power to coin money.
