United States Government

Questia, your online research library and paper writing resource, contains thousands of scholarly articles and books about United States Government.

The United States government springs from fundamental principles and ideals outlined in political essays now considered historical markings of U.S. progress. The government is responsible for upholding the specifically outlined guaranteed rights of its people. Since the declaration of its independence from Great Britain in 1776, the United States has operated as a constitutional republic, with power divided among three branches: executive, legislative, and judiciary. Having freed itself from the tyranny of a remote monarch, the United States created this division of power to ensure a system of checks and balances that would stamp out any future potential for tyrannical rule.
