Did you know that democracy started in Athens Greece?
No I did not, what is a democracy?
A democracy is when the people of a nation rule directly or elect someone to act on their behalf.
That's cool. 😁 Didn't the people of Athens have a direct democracy which means they had the voters go to one place to create laws and decide what actions to take. So what kind of democracy do we have?
We have a representative democracy, which is when the people elect representatives to carry on their work of government.
So we have a representative democracy which can also be called a Republic.
You could read the laws in a constitution, which is a written plan of government.
If I want to read the laws where would I read them?
