What is your Idea of a perfect government? If you do not know what some of the choices are please google. :3 America is a Democratic Republic BTW. A perfect democracy would be: A bandit has been chased out of town in the old west, all the people take a vote on to hang him or not. The hang him vote wins and they hang him. A Democratic Democracy would be: Once we have the bandit the sheriff rides up and says, "we cant just hang him this man has the right to a fair trial." So they take him back to town he goes to court and a jury of his piers decide. The Gov' has some say in Dem. Republic.
