DEMOCRATIC GOVERNMENT of USA
The government which is formed by the people for the people and through the people for the protection of their citizen’s fundamental rights is called a democratic form of government. The USA has rich, dominant and defacto democratic norms and values. Although, the democratic government in the U.S.A has been almost 200 years old, its compatible with the issues and challenges of the current era. The real cause behind the formation of this democratic government was the atrocities toward the settlers of the British monarch. During seventeen century British colonialized America as new land and started extraction of their natural resources through extractive policies. They violated the natural rights-life, liberty, pursuit of happiness and treated the settlers as slaves. Secondly, they imposed diverse types of taxation to pulled the money from America to Britain. When it became harder for them to face these mayhems, they (American) started the struggle for their freedom from British Monarch and in this way established a democratic government in the year of 1787, i.e., the world liberal democracy and the rest of the world copping it. The constitution of the USA was drafted under the Declaration of Independence which was developed back in 1776. Therefore, the USA celebrates its Freedom Day on 4 July each year. At first, they drafted an article of confederation that enshrined how to govern and democratically integrates the states, but in 1780s people of the U.S.A realized that the Article of Confederation is not enough to meet their rights in letter and spirit. So, the pioneers of the United States of America drafted a comprehensive and brief constitution for their country. The law of USA comprises of 7 articles and 29 amendments, and this whole constitution is a sample for the rest of the globe.
In 1776 the founders of the United States of America declared a declaration of independence and then drafted the constitution of the United States of America in which a blueprint of democratic government was enshrined. The current government of republican party is based on the same and legitimately follows all the articles and amendments of the constitution. For instance, the head of state and other members of the legislation are elected through direct adult franchise on a pro-rata basis of population. However, each state was given two senators to balance the law among the provinces. Moreover, a 3/4th majority was required to modify any article of the constitution, and the same is necessary in this time, for example, the majority as mentioned above must amend the clause which describes possession of firearms majority. Charter of America says that any citizen of 18 years old can cast a vote in favor of any candidate and the same practice is exercised in America in this century. If we are talking about seats in the senate and congress is an exact reflection of the constitution. In addition to the charter allows two terms of presidency and we can observe that the American's presidents strictly follow this rule. Furthermore, no government can disturb the check and balance system which enshrined in the manifesto of America. The charter of America grants equal rights to all its citizens irrespective of their caste color and religion; the presidency of Barak Obama shows that the legitimacy of the law is valid till the date.
The constitution of the USA has “ Bill of Rights" which defined the fundamental rights of a human being like protection, freedom of speech, citizenship rights, etc. The Government of the USA implies it in their letter and spirit. For instance, when the world trade center was attacked on 9/11 and killed about 3000 citizens the government of USA took a decisive step against the responsible (Alqaida) and thus started War on Terror against Alqaida. Since then fighting the longest war of their history. It causes about one trillion dollars to lose per year to the USA economy, but yet they want to eliminate the culprit of 9/11 attack. Similarly, the USA is introduced strict visa policy to safeguard their citizen from international Nonstate actors. It shows the commitment of the USA government toward their constitution.
Thus, from the above discussion, it was the inference that the whole constitution of the USA is fulfilling all the nitty gritty of a democratic government of modern era which accomplishes the fundamental human rights in their letter and spirit which lead it in the world order of states.
