Yes, democracy and the rule of law are at risk in the United States. We need to believe in a unique American mission. We must maintain democracy within our government. America should always serve as a model of the meaning of democracy. Everyones life should be better and have a given opportunity to advance regardless of their social class or race. Every human being should be treated as equal. We all have to believe in something positive. Having hope will make us better as a whole. America is a country that other countries look up to. According to Undderstanding American Politics, “Social democrats focus in the good of the whole society and envision a system under which all people will be equal economically and politically.” (Bressler et al. 2020). Democracy itself is a mixe with the rule of law. People rule only through laws of their democractically accountable representatives.( Gowder, Feb. 3, 2017). To defend the rule of law is to defend our constitutional democracy. According to Paul Gowder, “The election of Donald Trump raises serious worries about the future of the rule of law in the United States.” Paul Gowder, Feb. 2017.
