€ The

U S is a presidential, federal republic in which the president of the US , congress, and judiciary share Powers reserved to the national govt, and the federal govt shares sovereignty with the state govt. Federal and state elections generally take place with n a two party system, although this is not enshrined in law.

€ The

executive branch is headed by President and is independent of the legislature. € Legislative power is vested in the two chambers of Congress, the Senate and the House of Representatives. € The judicial branch (or judiciary), composed of the Supreme Court and lower federal courts, exercises judiciary. € The judiciary's function is to interpret the U S Constitution as well as federal laws and regulations. This includes resolving disputes between the executive and legislative branches.

€ The

federal government of the United States was established by the Constitution. Two parties, the Democratic Party and the Republican Party, have dominated American politics since the American Civil War, although other parties have also existed. € There are major differences between the political system of the United States and that of most other developed democracies.

€ These

include increased power of the upper house of the legislature, a wider scope of power held by the Supreme Court, the separation of powers between the legislature and the executive, and the dominance of only two main parties. € The United States is one of the world's developed democracies in which third parties have the least political influence.

€ The

federal entity created by the Constitution is the dominant feature of the American governmental system. € The federal government was created by the states, which as colonies were established separately and governed themselves independently of the others. € Units of local government were created by the colonies to efficiently carry out various state functions. As the country expanded, it admitted new states modeled on the existing ones.

State government € State govt have the power to make laws on all subjects that are not granted to the national government or denied to the states in the U.S. Constitution. € These include education, family law, contract law , and most crimes. Unlike the national government, which only has those powers granted to it in the Constitution, a state government has inherent powers allowing it to act unless limited by a provision of the state or national constitution.

€ Like

the national government, state governments have three branches: executive, legislative, and judicial. The chief executive of a state is its popularly elected governor, who typically holds office for a four-year term (although in a some states the term is two years). € All states have a bicameral legislature, with the upper house usually called the Senate and the lower house called the House of Representatives. € In most states, senators serve four-year terms, and members of the lower house serve two-year terms.

€ The

constitutions of the various states differ in some details but generally follow a pattern similar to that of the federal Constitution, including a statement of the rights of the people and a plan for organizing the government.
