What is the best system of government?
Back to question


Voting is an important part in a country’s government. Without it, the public won’t be able to decide what laws and politicians they want in the country.

The Argument

Voting in a republic is beneficial for the public. Through a representative, people can vote to elect a government official to get the ideas and laws they support passed.[1] If the right government leaders are in place, the economy will grow and the public will have prosperous lives.

Counter arguments

Using a representative is not the best way to vote. Representatives are people elected to represent certain political groups in a country.[2] There could be aggression between the groups that cause a stalemate during the final voting process. On top of separation between groups in the public population, there’s a separation between people and the main government. This creates limits on personal interaction and makes the people think the government doesn’t care for them.



[P1] Voting in a republic government is good for the country. [P2] Voting for qualified representatives benefits the people in the country, causing the country to grow.

Rejecting the premises

[Rejecting P2] If the representatives aren’t as qualified as they seem, the country will not grow, and the public will not benefit from their position.
