2 Principals Of Government

By: Patricio Vazquez

Individual Rights

Every person has their rights given to them by the Bill of Rights. For example, when the police arrest a suspected criminal, they say "You have the right to remain silent." What they mean is that in court, the defendant (suspect) does not have to confess to anything.

Popular Sovereignty

No one's voice is left out! The USA has a government designed for the people, by the people, so that means the people decide what goes and stays! Popular sovereignty means that what the people agree on is good!
