What is the most effective style of government?

What is the most effective style of government and why?

The most effective style of government is democracy because in democracy people have a say in what happens. They feel protected by laws, and they are treated equally. In the US, we have a democracy, and people are involved in the government. They vote for representatives to make laws. All of the people agree on the laws so they follow them. If they do not follow them, the constitution tells people what will happen. In a democracy people feel protected and safe because they have laws that are enforced. The government has to follow the laws, too.

Democracy is the most effective type of government because everyone is involved and has the chance to change the laws if they don't like the system. In the US, there is a representative democracy and people vote for representatives and the representatives can vote to change laws. The yst m works very well and people are happy.
