Being a good citizen means that you have responsibilities, and rights, and to obey the laws. A responsibility that you would have is to not litter on the ground or leave trash somewhere, to pay your taxes, protect public safety. Some rights that you have are, you have the right to vote, the right to own property, right to equal protection under the law. Some laws that you would need to obey to be a good citizen would be to not assault or kill a person, to stop at red lights and stop signs, and to not steal from stores or peoples home.

What is government, and why is it necessary? Government is the governing body of a nation, state, or community. Government is necessary because, it makes the laws so people are safe or, rule of law, they give also give people rights, and deals with other countries. They make laws so people are safe, so people follow the rule of law to stay safe. One law the government has made is public accommodations, when people shall be entitled to the full and equal enjoyment of the goods, services, facilities, and privileges, advantages. The government also gives people rights and they deal with other countries. Some rights the government gives is the right to vote, the right to assemble, and the right to equal protection under the law. Some benefits the government has with dealing with other countries is that they get to trading with them. For example they have some pretty good trading manufactures with China, like they can get some stuff for really cheap. These are some of the reasons why I think government is necessary.
