Q:What makes a good citizen? A: A good citizen is a person who has rights and responsibilities. A good example of this is obeying rules or laws. A responsibilitycan be paying taxes or voting. There are also things called social law. A social law can be say respecting your friends and be kind. These types of laws are enforced by your friends and society. A federal law however is enforced by the the authorities (police, FBI, CIA). Finally a good citizen has a good understanding of their rights and responsibilities.

Q:What is the most effective style of government? A:The most effective government style is a representative democracy because it is the most equal and fair government style because every citizen gets rights and responsibilities and it is a limited government. Several limits are in place to make sure that the government does not get too much power. In an American democracy the power is split between the three branches of government the executive branch the judicial branch and the legislative branch this is called separation of power and in representative democracy there is consent of the governed which means all citizens give permission to be governed and the government does not control them. There is also a limit in every democracy called a constitution a constitution states how a government works and gives citizens their rights and responsibilities. To make sure everyone is treated fairly the limit called rights if the minority is put in play,this limit protects the rights of people that are small and unpopular. Another very important limit is rule of law rule of law states that no matter what a government official cannot violate the law. This is why the most effective style of government is a representative democracy.
