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.
