Here's your chance to let the world know what democracy means to you!

Add your ideas, your name, grade level, and your State/Country.
Be sure you don't add TOO much information, such as your last name, your real age. Also, "online names" are PERFECTLY acceptable!


I believe that democracy is the only way that everyday people have the ability to speak up and choose what they want to see in a government. Without a democracy, people would not be able to enjoy the freedoms promised to them by the founders of our nation. We would be at the whim of whomever is in power!

I think that democracy is right for the US and other countries but for some countries Democracy might not be the best form of government. Even if countries proclaim themselves to be a "Democracy" some will not function as one. Kenya is a nice expample of that. The opposing leader beat out the incumbent and the incumbent refused to give up power causing riots and and battles. Democracy in the US to me means freedom.
