  • Our government actually uses different fundamental ideas that helped influence our system.
  • I wonder where our system of government comes from!
  • Well, when the English reached North America, they brought some ideas like the Magna Carta with them.
  • The Magna Carta was a guarantee of fundamental rights which were forcefully signed by King John.
  • Really? Which concepts helped influence our government then?
  • They also brought the idea of limiting the governments power, and representative government, which said the government should serve the people and hear their voice.
  • The English Bill of Rights, which prohibited having a standing army in peacetime, was also influential toward the government.
  • Really? Tell me more!
  • Wow, that is pretty interesting.
