Direct democracy is the most effective form of government. In a direct democracy the citizens get to participate in voting for a good leader. This means if the citizens vote for a govern they like, the majority of the people would enjoy the governor's thought and ideas, so nobody would want to hurt the governor. This is better than a representative democracy because the governor's vote for who they want for a leader, but if the citizens dislike the person they chose then the whole country can go against the governor. In a direct democracy the representative gets to participate in make the constitution. This means the representatives can create laws that are not silly. Unlike the direct representative, the direct democracy is better because the citizens and representatives are able to participate in more and run the country.

A good citizen is someone who can follow the rules also known as the law. A good citizen can also be someone that can handle responsibilities. If his/her has both of these character traits they are a good citizen. For example if someone were to break the law there would be consequences that can affect how much responsibility they can handle. A good citizen would have responsibilities to follow like going to school for an education, having a job to pay bills and to buy family needs, following the law and more. If the responsibilities aren't handled correctly, the action comes with a price that can be a fee, jail time or other legal after effects. Another way to be a good citizen is to respect other people’s right instead of squashing their ideas. With all of these ideas and character traits this is the way to be a good citizen.
