Q & A

What does it mean to be a good Citizen?

A good Citizen would be a person who obeys the laws. Because the person obeys the laws, he would have the rights to go to school so that he and his kids get their education. The money he pays for taxes would go to the school so the school can pay for things. People have rights but they have responsibilities, too. They have to pay taxes and take care of their children. They have to keep their country clean and be kind to everyone. They have to vote so that there is a government.

What is a government and why is it necessary.

Government is a system countries use to control and protect their people. It is necessary because Government measure for people to be able to protect their personal property interests. The first of these purposes of government is the one that more people think about. This is something that is included in the Declaration of Independence. The Declaration tells us that people have the innate rights to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” It tells us that the government exists in order to protect these rights. If we did not have government, our society would be a free for all. For example, Governments are needed for two main reasons. First, we need them to protect our rights. Second, we need them to provide certain economic things that could not be provided by the private sector. Government is a system that protects people's rights and its people. For example, Anyone who had enough power could simply take away our property. They could enslave us. They could kill us. We need a government to protect us from having our human rights violated in these ways. In conclusion, we need government to protect people and their rights.
