When it comes to American politics, we cannot do without the Supreme Court of the United States, the unconstitutional review system, and the conflicts and differences between the United States Congress and the President in the process of legislative bills, which is the most compelling political point of view in the United States, as well as the participation of multiple interest groups in the political struggle of the United States, and finally with the help of the Supreme Court to examine whether it is unconstitutional and make decisions in support of one party. Since the interpretation of the U. S. Constitution has a certain flexible mechanism, it also makes the U. S. constitutional practice achieve the integration of the public opinion of the U. S. in repeated principles and compromises, which also explains why the U. S. can be accommodated by the U. S. constitutional government under the system of decentralization for more than 200 years, among the three powers, and between the federal and state under the premise of little change.
