The Founding Fathers, the framers of the Constitution, wanted to form a government that did not allow one person to have too much control. With this in mind, the framers wrote the Constitution to provide for a separation of powers, or three separate branches of the government. Each has its own responsibilities and, at the same time, they work together to make the country run smoothly and to assure that the rights of citizens are not ignored or disallowed.
