Creating three distinct branches; the legislative, executive and judicial. Each branch has specific powers to check at the same time capable of the powers of the other two branches. The government has to meet the legal, tax and laws. It judicial system has been constructed in which the Supreme Court of the United States has the last word on the laws .System of checks and balances between the three branches of power are combined in accordance with the Constitution and the legislature has been truly representative body of the people. An important feature of the Constitution is that it is constantly adapting to the times and has the ability to be amended so it would never be stuck in the past. The Case between Dred Scott v. Sanford was a had a showed how much of an impact the amendments had on shaping America. In 1857 Dred Scott, an African-American slaves, was taken by his master, officer of the U.S. Army, the slave state of Missouri to the free state of Illinois and the free territory of Wisconsin. He lived on free soil for a long period. When the Army ordered his master to return to the state of Missouri, he took Scott with him to the slave state, where his master died back. In 1846, Scott helped the death penalty lawyers to sue for his freedom in court, claiming he should be free because he had lived on free soil for a long period. The case went to the Supreme Court of the United States. Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Roger B. Tani was a former slave owner from Maryland. In March 1857 in Scott lost seven of nine justices of the Supreme Court declared no slave or descendant of a slave could be a U.S. citizen or have been a citizen of the United States. As a non-citizen, the court stated, Scott had no rights and could not sue in federal court and must remain a slave. At the time, there were about 4 million slaves in America. The court's decision has affected all slaves and African-Americans in the United States. The Supreme Court also ruled that Congress could not stop slavery in emerging regions and declared the Missouri Compromise of 1820 was unconstitutional. Missouri Compromise prohibited slavery north of 36 ° 30 'in the Louisiana Purchase. The court, he found against the Fifth Amendment, which prohibits Congress from depriving property without due process. Anti-slavery leaders in the North led to a controversial decision of the Supreme Court as evidence that Southerners to extend slavery throughout the country and eventually manage the nation itself wanted. Southerners approved the Dred Scott decision believing Congress had no right to prohibit slavery in the territories. Abraham Lincoln reacted with disgust at the decision and was spurred into political action, speaking publicly against them. In general, the Dred Scott decision affect the development of social and political divide between the North and the South and the nation took over the brink of civil war. In Cleveland, Ohio, the three members of the local police arrived at the apartment to search got to find a property where you want bomb suspect was hiding in the house, the plaintiff, Mapp was performed, and his daughter, who both lived in the second floor of two family home. According to the staff, they received information that someone was hiding in the house wanted for questioning in connection with a recent bombing. To find knock and ask to enter the premises, Miss Mapp denied the request. Officials said their dominant situation at hand, and waited able to monitor the inside of the residence. A few hours later, the police tried to house a second time after an additional period of four police backup arrived on the scene. At that time Miss Mapp refused to even open the door, and they broke into the house through physical force. Miss Mapp lawyer came to the residence, the police would not let him, and yet they allow him to see the search warrant. While Miss Mapp continued questioning of officials of the arrest warrant, the officer quickly broke a piece of paper on which Miss Mapp grabbed a sheet of paper and began to hide in the trunk. This led to a conflict between the officers and Miss Mapp, which eventually led to Miss Mapp, is currently held in custody and handcuffed on the ground that his uncooperative and responsible for safety at risk. Handcuffs, Miss Mapp was taken on the second floor of his house. Then the staff began to look in dresser, wardrobe, look for bags and other personal items.

The most recent showing of how the constitution and the bill of rights is continuing to shape the United States of America. In the year 2064, China grew impatient and demanded that the United States of America to pay off its debts or else China would cut of trade with the States. U.S reacted to this by nationalizing Iraq’s oil supply. Iraq was now considered a state of the U.S. The transition however was very complicating and implementing the constitution and the bill of rights to the citizens of Iraq. During this time, there was an increase in child labour in Iraq. Here is where the 13th amendment comes into play. Enforcing the 13th amendment in Iraq would cost many slave owners lots of profits that they would get from the labour and they would most likely be trialed and put into prison. One child labour ringleader, Malik Zaid, was arrested for running one of the largest child labour services in Iraq. He was trialed in Iraq under the newly implemented U.S laws and was sentenced to life in prison. This created other slave owners to either go into hiding and shut down their business or fight back against the amendment in hope to create a 28th amendment allowing for slavery. Led by Rahim Ibrahim was protest and riots to get the 28th amendment ratified. The Iraq citizens were new to the whole process it takes for a bill to ratify and grew impatient. Ibrahim created a militia and threated to start a civil war. The President at the time Ian Samuel did not take Ibrahim seriously because America still has to pay off the debt owed to china and did not have time to deal with Ibrahim. So, with little interference from the government and the fact that Ibrahim’s opposed 28th amendment has yet to be ratified, Ibrahim felt that he was not being taking seriously and got help from his allies from other countries. Militia leader of the “Kozak” in Russia Vladimir Kozlov was one of Ibrahim’s unusual allies. He and Ibrahim ordered their men to a surprise attack on a major oil drilling site in Iraq. Over 500,000 gallons of oil was lost that day and Ibrahim was not done wreaking havoc yet. He and Kozlov started kidnapping men, women, and children all over Iraq to put in their labour factories. Now President Samuel had enough and sent out 200,000 troops on a mission to arrest and capture Ibrahim at his centre of operations in Krekaran. The attack was a blood bath as Samuel not being a very military literate president, did not have a very good plan of attack losing more than 100 soldiers in the fight. In the end Ibrahim was arrested and sentenced to life in prison, Kozlov fled back to hiding in Russia, and the slaves where sent free back to their lives. Till this day, America has yet to pay off its debt to China but China is still trading with America.

The Constitution, was intended to provide America with a government system not only a solid foundation for the management of checks and balances, the government does not have too, but if the Bill of Rights, and is also designed to protect people against the government overzealous people in great fear immediately after the Revolution and the separation from the mother in England. Firstly, in accordance with the Articles of Confederation, the rights of individual components were not protected, and left to the states, and products simply explains the intergovernmental relations and the creation of the Congress of the United States, unable to meet the need for a strong army, as opposed to state militial forces, and the need for a central government in a position of tax legislation and the settlement of international disputes. Needs of people and the pain of the Constitution was created. Most states, however, refused to sign the Declaration of the Rights of the front, the other provided several alleged that the Bill of Rights be added soon made. It was a constant topic of debate recently whether individual states should establish laws to protect their personal specific components, or when the Bill of Rights should continue to be established to protect all citizens of the United States before the loss of rights.
