A government is an institution where authority is vested in a body or group of individuals, usually an administration. There are different types of governments and they are known as constitutional monarchies, absolute monarchies, representative republics, constitutional monarchies, and constitutional republics. In countries where there is a separation of powers, there are also different types of governments. For instance in the United States, there are the U.S. Presidents, U.S. Congress, U.S. Courts, U.S. Presidents’ appointees, and the U.S. Congress’ appointees. The powers bestowed on the leaders are derived from the constitution and they are exercisable by the general assembly of the people at the convening of the legislature.
It was the impact of the revolution that led to the evolution of constitutional conventions that laid the foundations for freedom. Throughout the colonial period, the colonists were subjected to oppressive rule from the British. As a result, many colonists came to believe that their freedoms were no longer available to them and that any political freedom was no longer sacred. These colonists made their grievances clear through the creation of revolutionary and expressive assemblies that played an important role in deciding important issues in the form of rights and freedoms.
Through the efforts of these colonists, the English government came to realize that some fundamental rights of the citizens of England and American society were no longer being protected. Thus, in the 1791 Bill of Rights, the declaration of independence was made, which placed the country on a road to economic freedom and a more stable government. It also established the right of every citizen to worship freely, to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures, and to have access to public properties for the common welfare of the people.
The creation of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights gave birth to a new conception of a just and equitable government, the US government provides services to provide public goods and services. Public goods and services include education, health care, social security, roads, natural resources, science and technology, scientific research and development, cultural institutions, transportation, communications, law and justice. These services are essential to the economic growth of the country. Since the country is a democratic one with a unicameral legislature, each citizen has the right to vote for or against those public goods and services.
Although capitalism is a limited government system, many citizens still believe that it is far better than communism or any other type of political system. This may be due to political propaganda, which is often used by some businessmen to promote their own interests. Nevertheless, most economists argue that economic freedom is more important than political freedom. However, a small amount of political interference is not bad, provided that it does not affect the freedoms of other citizens.
For instance, if some car manufacturers wanted to make laws about the production of cars, and if they won a vote, they could make laws about how cars should be built. A small business cannot do this, but a large corporation can. Since capitalism is limited, it only makes sense for citizens to have the freedom to choose among different possibilities. Therefore, politicians cannot force the citizens to choose capitalism or any other option, for that would violate their rights. Instead, citizens should have the freedom to choose between limited government, unlimited capitalism, or no government at all.
