My Ideal Governement

In my ideal community, the government style would be a republic. A republic is a form of government in which the people elect an authority, or representative to establish laws and have control over the people. https://www.1215.org/lawnotes/lawnotes/repvsdem.htm This is a great form of government because everyone gets a say in choosing who would be the best fit for our country. Although, not everyone will agree with the leader elected, everyone was given the opportunity to vote and give an opinion of who they think should be in control.
This form of government gives us the freedom and rights to make decisions that will potentially affect us. I, personally, would rather be able to vote for something, so that my opinion is being heard, rather than having someone else or a group of people deciding something for me. This is true for many others. People want to be able to express what they value and expect in a leader, and in a republic, they are able to do that. We all have different views on how we think a government should be run, and we are able to vote for whoever is portraying the same important political beliefs we have. https://www.britannica.com/topic/republic-government describes a republic as a style of government that the “sovereignty rest with the people”. This is very true, since the people don’t run the government, they are put in charge of voting for the best fit to run the government.
Another reason why a republic is one of the best forms of government is because it protects the interest of people. A leader is elected to look at a situation and deal with it in the way that will benefit the people. If the leader does not deal with it in a way that benefits the people, they should be able to elect them out of office, and find a leader that has a selfless way of ruling, and will try adhere to the needs of the nation.
These are a few reasons why I think a republic is a great style of government. It puts the power in the hands of the people, which has its pros and cons to both sides, but it gives everyone an equal chance to vote for who they want. Obviously this system isn’t flawless. There are downsides to the way a republic can be run. For example, differences in opinions can create discord between Americans, but people will never see completely eye to eye, even if they share some of the same beliefs. There’s always something people will disagree with. Nothing will ever be ran perfectly until we get to heaven under God’s control, so we have something to look forward to.

  1. I agree with your opinion. The government should have enough power to make laws and regulations on certain rules. The leaders should be elected by the people giving them the freedom to choose. This will allow people to have their opinion heard and show who they think will be best to run the country.

  2. In this republic, who (or what) holds executive power and makes those important decisions, especially regarding military activities? A council of representatives would often rather die arguing their points for/against than live with a compromise.
