Answer each question about 600 words, it has to be based on the sources I provided and common knowledge about politics. I will personally write and summarize each essay with a conclusion so no need to provide one. If more sources are needed let me know
1. If democracy is a system in which decisions reflect the popular will and all voters have an equal say, how democratic is our system of electing presidents? Are there feasible reforms that would improve the system? A good answer will discuss both the primary system and the general election (i.e., the Electoral College). Write 1 intro paragraph and 2 Body paragraphs
2. Recall the question posed by our hypothetical extraterrestrial visitor: How can we claim that the periodic election of representatives to make decisions counts as “rule by the people?” Write an essay that evaluates the two answers to this question that we discussed in class—the mandate/responsiveness model and the accountability model. Then consider whether direct democracy in the form of initiatives offers a better way for the people to rule. In doing so, you should demonstrate that you are in command of the alleged advantages and disadvantages of initiatives. Write 1 intro paragraph and 2 Body paragraphs
