Oh, i guess I do want to represented.
Why? What's the point?
Are you gonna vote?
Yup! that's why one of the principles is republicanism, just remember to do your research so you choose the best person to represent you.
Well since the people are sovereign, we need to exercise our power by voting so that our government represents us.
The person who I voted for lost. I'm scared that the other person will be a bad leader and take control of the gov.
Ok, that makes me feel better.
No need to worry! In the US our gov leaders still have to obey the rules. They even have certain laws to prevent sieges of power by individuals and groups.
These are called "checks and balances" if one branch tries something sneaky the other branches will stop them. Not one branch has all the power to prevent tyranny.
Yes I can, I have the right to peacefully protest. It is stated in the Bill of Rights, it protects my individual liberties.
The Bill of Rights was created to insure that the people would not be oppressed. We have the right to speech choice of religion and many more.
Oh, so as long as you're peaceful and don't harm anyone you can say what you think!
You're not allowed to protest! That's an act of treason!
