What is a Democracy
An example of this is, is that everyone has the right to vote.
Pre 1700's- Athens in Greece
In America today our government currently is run as a Democracy. This means that everyone has equal rights, this can be seen when it comes to voting, getting any job we choose and not being discriminated against because of our birthplace. America not only runs as a Democracy but it also tries to reason with other nations about the idea of changing their government to a Democracy. Their Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor (DRL) support and promote programs that are anywhere in the world that involve democracy. DRL is not only the primary democracy advocate but it is also responsible for overseeing the Human Rights and Democracy Fund (HRDF). HRDF's job is to address Human Rights and Democratization emergencies, DRL also will use resources from HRDF and Regional Democracy Funds to support all Democratization programs like monitoring elections and the development of Parliamentary. This proves that America is so sure in the way a Democracy is run that they will do anything in their power to spread it.
