Dive into the U.S. Constitution, exploring the role and duties of the Legislative, Executive and Judicial Branches. Compare the government of the United States with others around the world. How did the Founding Fathers ensure fair and equal representation? How do history, geography, anthropology and economics influence government? Consider all of this and more, as we use past elections as a case study to examine and better understand the American Democracy.
