DID YHOWSHUA BLESS AMERICA ? WHAT TYPE OF GOVERMENT DID GOD BLESS IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA? WHAT IS AMERICA STANDING FOR?
In the United States, our government is the system of power that acts on behalf of its people. The U.S. government was designed to serve the American people. Our government protects our rights and preserves our freedoms. Governments are set up to make and enforce laws. In this section, we will look at the basic types of governments in the world, yet the main emphasis will be placed on the understanding our American government system.
In the United States there are three levels of government. The federal government ( national level ) makes and enforces laws for our nation. The fifty state governments ( state level ) make and enforce laws for their respective states. Each city or town in which a person lives has a city or town government (local level) that makes and enforces laws for their community. The most powerful of the three levels is our federal ( national level ) government.
All nations of the world have some type of government. Not all governments are alike. Regardless of the type of government, its leaders try to justify that amount of power that the government has. There are different ways in which leaders are chosen based on the type of government. There are also varying degrees of power that is held by people in certain types of government.
There are limited governments and unlimited governments in the world. The United States has a constitutional government, which means that it is a limited government system. This prevents leaders from abusing the powers that they have been given. This type of government system provides control over the people that are in authority and protects our individual freedoms.
