Democracy is a political system where the power lies in the citizens, who elect people to represent them. Some advantages to a democracy are that it can provide change in government without violence; power can be transferred from one party to another through elections. The people we elect owe their success to the people who elected them in the first place. When people elect someone they elect who suit them, they should be grateful that you even like them. It should also make them want to work harder and motivate them to work for the people and not themselves. In democracy people feel a great sense of participation in the choosing of their government, they get to voice their opinion by means of votes. Sometime it even makes people feel a sense of belonging in their society. There are also disadvantages to democracy which are the government is always changing after every election term, the person you elected may lose focus of what was important and may steer in the other direction. Democracy can also influence people, some may vote for someone that everyone else wanted and not what they want. Everyone has different views about the various political systems, you should always choose what you want not what everyone else wants. Because in the long run, you should be happy with the choices and opinions of your own. We all don’t think alike, that is what make us individuals and make this world a great place to live in.
