Cancelled: The Growth of Executive Power and Its Challenge to the Constitutional System of Checks and Balances
When the Framers developed the Constitution, they created a system of checks and balances to preserve liberty and prevent tyranny. The system has been challenged by growth of presidential power. Reasons for this growth will be examined along with possible options to restore effective checks and balances.
