Q: What makes a good citizen
A:Being a good citizen means a lot of things one of the most important things is voting.Although you don't have to vote it is one of the biggest ways you can help your country.Voting is not a right and many countries ,citizens cannot vote n the next leader.Being a good citizen also means doing your responsibilities like paying taxes,following social and political laws,having a tolerance for others around you and even though you don't have to staying informed is a good idea so you know what is going on around you.Somethings you don't have to do but you every once in a while should do like use your freedom of speech and the right to petition because in our country we have the right and the authority to both of those things.
People don't understand how much one vote of there's is worth.
What do you think the best kind of government?
I think representative democracy is the most effective type of government. In a representative democracy like here in America people in each state elect a person to say their needs to the government at least that's the representative part of it. The democracy part is people vote on their leader every four years and they vote on major decisions. Let's use communism, first people can just drag their feet because no matter how hard you work or what your job is you get the same pay. Representative democracy not everyone gets the same pay so if you're a doctor and you work harder and had to go through more college than a gas station worker.Also in a representative democracy there is more things kept in check and more laws to follow you may say most economic systems are kept in check which they are but there are more laws in this one.A representative democracy has a lot of good things helping it be in check like separation of power which makes sure no branch of the government gets too much power. Rights of the minority which gives smaller groups special rights,this rule is something that many Americans feared would disappear when president Trump was elected. The constitution is a list of rules that everyone has to follow and that not all law systems have but ours dose. Consent of governed is the the people agreeing that they will follow the government's laws and rules.That is why I think representative democracy is best government system.
What forces work for and against supranational cooperation among nations?
Forces that work against supranational cooperation among nations areWestern Europe is one example of a force that works against supranational cooperation mainly because of how their money is spent.A lot of Western Europe’s money from taxes is given to Eastern Europe to build projects for the less fortunate even though the money is going in to something good the Western Europe’s don't think so.What EU members don't like about the EU politically is that they have to give up some of their power to the EU and people think that their national identity will be lost in the push to unite Europe.EU members don't like giving up some of their power to the EU because if they don't like an idea that parliament makes they can't just say no.Also people don't really like the idea of Europe citizenship because they don't want to lose their roots and no borders and barriers in the schengen because people are worried that a dangerous person could come in the country.Europe will probably never have one language and this is one of their biggest hold backs and people not wanting to let go of their cultural.Even though there's not really anything keeping someone in France from not going to Germany language is huge and a major hold back and people are very proud of their culture and don't want to give all of their special things just so Europe can have trade deals.In conclusion there are many forces against the supranational cooperation of the EU.
