A form of government in which all citizens vote on issues that face the nation. The first true democracy was in the Greek isles. Though they where a strong nation they where easily defeated by the Romen empire because they where spread apart and information traveled slowly.
A true democracy couldnt work in the past because of the slow travel of information, but in the present day the internet could be used.
PLEASE NOTE: The United States Of America is not a Democracy, it is a Republic.
Ancient Greece was a Democracy.
The United States is not a Democracy, it is a Republic like ancient Rome.
