If the USA was in a democracy we would go downhill extremely quickly

Democracy: the people vote on ALL issues directly and majority rules.

Republic: a government where people elect Representatives to lead the country on their behalf.

I would prefer democracy. I like it when all people have a say. I would especially prefer it over Trump making all the decisions. I live in Canada which is a Democracy. However if Americans elected Trump when they had democracy then perhaps they shouldnt have democracy anyways.

I hope Trump doesnt start a nuclear war with Korea because it might hit Canada as well. Though the other countries would probably warn Canada if there was going to be a nuke launch so we can evacuate. But still. Luckily, not much of Trumps decisions are being approved.

This is just my opinions of course. I believe that people should all be equal and they should all have a say. Obama did a really good job as president. He was a great step forward for America. I guess America didnt like that very much. So there was no way they were going to vote for a girl after that. But thats my opinion. I dont want to offend anyone this is just my opinion on things. This is what I think based on what I know.

^I just got done saying We were never a democracy. I swear You kids Skim over everything^

Also, A democracy Is a Terrible Idea It would Everything would be decided by the majority. (unfair to the rest) which would fail extremely quickly. (Tyranny of the Majority)

Also, last time I checked Canada Is a constitutional monarchy, not Direct Democracy.

to add Trump Is not the one making threats Towards people for no reason. If your claiming North Korea Are the good guys Please do research.

Its one G. Two Gs makes it a hard G. Magie is pronounced with a soft tree.

I know much more about the situation than most 15 year old Autistics. I do research and I do ask questions.

And yes. Korea was doing it just as much as America. That doesnt give Trump the right to provoke it further. It doesnt give Korea the right to either. My mom says they are both waving their d---s around.

Not all Canadians hate Trump. We just have more accurate news than America. (According to my unanimous source) So thats why its more often for Canadians to hate Trump than Americans.

Of course, I dont hate Trump as a person. I dont believe in hating people because no matter how much research I do I know Im blinded by my opinion. I dont hate Trump as a person. I just dont like the idea of him being President.

Okay. So I dont know the exact terms of Democracy, Republic, and all that. I cant even vote yet and I didnt learn as much Government stuff in school as Americans apparently learned about their government in Elementary. Just because I dont know everything about another countrys system doesnt mean Im a dumb person who doesnt bother to research.

The day Dawson defends me is the day GTQ allows me to post a clown emoji. (Which it doesnt.) Or the day America votes in a woman for President. (Which sadly wont happen.) Dawson is fighting against stereo types. Not defending me.
