Democorocy is a form of government that gives power to the people,typically through voting.
There are two types of Democrocies, representative like Ancient Rome and modern day USA where they vote on people like presidents, and a direct democrocy, like Greeces city state Athens. In Athens citizens vote on laws.
Rome Influenced the Usa by making the idea of a republic. A system where people vote on people to make the laws, not people. We also developed the thought that one perso nin the goverment should have more power, each branch should have equal power.
Greece influnced Athems influencedthe USA's goverment by makinng the entire idea of democrocy.
In our goverment our citizens can vote on representatives or people to make the laws, and can vote on some laws. We can also send letters to the representatives, voicing our opinions,
