Alexis De Tocquevilles Democracy in America delves deep into how the American States and the federal government would grow politically and socially under the umbrella of democracy He sees the United States as a unique entity because of how and why it started as well as its geographical location De Tocqueville explains that the foundations of the democratic process in America are completely different from anywhere else on the globe The land was virginal and the colonies had almost complete sovereignty from England from the very beginning because they were separated by an ocean and financial troubles The people who came to America were the oppressed and unhappy in England and all were trying to find a place where they could start anew and create a political structure that would facilitate an individual freedom unlike anything that they had previously experienced in Europe De Tocqueville believed that the nature of democracy in the New World rested within the fact that all of the emigrants were basically from the same social strata resulting in the first new country where there was no preliminary basis for an aristocracy Land is the basis of an aristocracyand in America when the ground was prepared its produce was found to be insufficient to enrich a proprietor and a farmer at the same t ime41 He saw that even the soil of America was opposed to the structure of an aristocracy There were also outside influences lending unvoiced support for the creation of this new democracy Being an ocean apart from its mother country who at this time did not have the financial reserves to oversee its colonies let the Americans govern themselves If they had not had this sovereignty at the beginning America might have become something completely different than it is today
