Representative Democracy

By the People; for the People!

Blake Shelton

America The Beautiful (feat. Miranda Lambert) by Blake Shelton

Government in the United States does not exist without the people!!

When the Framers of the Constitution formed our government they were very deliberate in selecting the first three words of the Constitution "We the People." They wanted us to know, generation after generation, that the government is to be made up of everyday people and serve everyday people.

Who Got Time for That?

The Founding Fathers also realized that most Americans were too busy to participate in the daily functions of government. Their solution was to establish a Representative Democracy or Republic where citizens would select leaders to voice concerns on their behalf.
