The US Constitution was originally intended to create a governmental system that truly respects liberty In more ways than one however the Constitution actually limited personal liberties and was not designed to create a complete democracy The Electoral College is one way in which our government is not a complete democracy and limits personal liberties The Electoral College makes it so the popular vote does not necessarily give the win to the president It was designed so that if a complete tyrant got elected to office the Electoral Representatives would have the option to not vote for him Judicial Review is yet another way in which we violate the rules of a complete democracy Through Judicial Review a select few are able to declare laws unconstitutional thus nullifying them In a complete democracy the entire population would be able to vote on a law Also many government officials such as the Presidential Cabinet are appointed by the President not elected by the population A true democracy would have this feature of being able to vote for the Cabinet of the President This brings up the idea of a representative government Since the United States has a representative government the true will of every single person is not represented The Senate has only 2 seats for every state Thus the beliefs of every person in the state are supposedly represented in those two people Lastly the media is a huge influence on the way the government works the way the people feel about issues and about the way laws and issues are generally presented The mass media influences the beliefs of the citizens thus influencing their decisions on laws This generally influences the way the government works in the future
