Case study

By Jackson averitt

Iran

Iran is a theocratic Islamic republic governed under the constitution of 1979 as amended. Appointed, rather than elected, offices and bodies hold the real power in the government. The supreme leader, who effectively serves as the head of state, is appointed for life by an Islamic religious advisory board


U.S

The U.S uses the democracy system in their government. A democracy gives the power to the people. It allows them to vote leaders and too help determine important stuff in their government.U.S citizens can vote for their leaders, influence their government, and have the right of freedom.

Comparisons

Iran and the U.S are similar and also different one way they are similar is that they both elect a person to be their president. But in Iran they also have a supreme leader that is not elected and he stays in office until he dies or resigns. Also citizens in Iran do not have as much say so in their government as Americans do.

Rights

U.S citizens have many rights because of the government we have. Such as the right of liberty, the pursuit of happiness and to own property.The government of Iran is criticized both for restrictions and punishments that follow the Islamic Republic's constitution and law, and for actions that do not, such as the torture, rape, and killing of political prisoners, and the beatings and killings of dissidents and other civilians.
