Rights & Responsibilities
These are the 5 most important democratic rights.
The Responsibilities Of Voting Citizens
It's the responsibility of citizens to familiarize them selves with the candidates and issues at hand before voting, along with a few other things such as: knowing where there local polling place is and it's hours, bring proper I.D., Respect the privacy of the other voters, know how to vote, Ask questions if needed and make sure the ballet is completed correctly before leaving.
The Right of Children
This right is possibly the most important because this right basically protects children and gives them the right to life, a name, nationality, to know/be cared for by it's parents or legal guardians, Not to be subject to exploitative practices, neither to be required nor permitted to perform work which may be hazardous or harmful to his or her education, health or well-being and to be free of any corporal punishment or cruel and inhumane in school and other institutions responsible for the care of children.
Responsibility of taking care of children
It's the responsibility of the legal guardians or parents of the child to take of them and make sure they get every thing they need until they are 18 and old enough to care for them selves.
The Right of Equality
Every individual has the right of equality because in a democratic country/environment every one is equal no matter race, religion, gender, age or sexual preference. No one is above the law in any way.
Responsibilty of Equality
It falls on the citizens to treat others equally and with respect and not discriminate or hate other people because of their ethnicity, religion, or any thing else that would be considered offensive to the other person
The Right of Freedom
This is the most important right in a democratic country I feel because it gives citizens the freedom of conscience and religion, thought, belief, opinion, expression and of the press. It also allows for Canadian citizens the right to come and go from Canada any time they please.
Responsibility of Democratic Freedom
Citizens are responsible for their own freedom and not to misuse or take advantage of this right and turn into something horrible and harm others around them
Democratic Legal Rights
Legal rights consists of the right to be arrested/imprisoned after they have been given the rightful reason why. And not to be deprived of the principles of fundamental justice, or arbitrarily detained or imprisoned. Every one also has the right not to be subjected to any cruel or unusual punishment.
Responsibilty of Democratic Legal Rights
The responsibility of our legal rights is in the hands of the government, courts, and police officers and it's up to them to uphold justice and the law. So if they were to abuse this power our democracy can quickly turn into anarchy with violent riots and fights.
