Please identify individually where in the Constitution it "Checks and Balances" and "Separation of Powers" are addressed. I don't see the difference between the two, this is where I am stuck.
Separation of Powers divided the government into 3 sections: Executive Branch, Judicial Branch, and Legislative Branch.
Checks and Balances gives each branch a specific responsibility as to not let one group handle all the power. The power was distributed to each branch. For example, Congress cannot make a law and execute them. It must be approved by the President, and can repealed by a Judicial member. Congress can make laws, but only the President can execute them. And a judicial member can declares a law unconstitutional.
