Q and A

Good citizens have expectations that they will take care of certain things and perform certain duties. A good citizen is someone that pays taxes. It's important for everyone to pay taxes because taxes pay for government services, like police departments, schools, and public works. Additionally, good citizens follow the laws and respect other people and their property. It is a social responsibility to tolerate others and do the right thing. All Citizens have the right of voting and freedom of speech, but good citizens will be informed about the issues when they vote on, and they will speak their minds without harming others. Some other responsibilities Good citizens do are volunteer in the community, protect the environment, work hard, and be honest and trustworthy.

Good citizens help there country.

What is government and why is it necessary?

A government is system or form by which a community or group of people live by certain rules. It is also the people who make and administer the rules. Government is necessary because it protects citizens’ rights, creates and enforces laws and provides services to its citizen. Government is a group of people who have the power to create laws, if there was no government people could do whatever they want. “Without government if everyone had a right to everything people would always be at war with everyone else.” Hobs.There would be no laws and people would have no protection. There is a government to protect citizens, Laws, services and rights. We have government to keep everyone/everything in line. For example, Without government we would not have a police force. Without police Force it would be like the perge. Without a government there would be no taxes, if there were no taxes people would get no money and people would lose there jobs.“people have the right of life liberty and property” John Locke believed that government's purpose was to protect peoples rights.
