What does American democracy mean to you as an individual?
As an individual, American democracy means my freedom in America. Freedom to do what I wish, choose my own religion, free to travel, and vote for whichever party I choose. I also have the ability to voice my own opinion. However, what I appreciate the most about democracy is freedom of speech. I can disagree with the leaders of this country without fear of being locked up or killed. Most importantly, American democracy means allowing people like myself to decide what is good for the country.
What are some of the criticisms of this style of government?
Some of the criticisms of this style of government are that other countries believe we should not have freedom. We should not be allowed to vote, go places when we want, or voice our own opinion. They believe that we should have to do what the government says. People in our country often take our freedom for granted and I strongly believe they should travel to places like Russia, or China to realize just how lucky we are.
You are welcome, I hope it helped!
