Political Science Mid-Term Exam


Political Science Mid-Term Exam
1. Describe the Three Models of Democracy

The first model of democracy is market model, also called neo-liberalism, which states
that a political system is democratic if each of its voters has the chance to choose between at
least two competing political ideologies or elites. Participatory democracy postulates that citizens
must take part in elections as well as look after their interests through political mechanisms. The
third model, grass-roots democracy, or communitarian democracy, does not rely on the decisionmaking of big institutions but the civil society and the life-world. The U.S. is a neo-liberal
democracy because of the presence of radical individualism and strong free markets and
capitalism. I prefer the participatory model since it is the model that vests power in the citizen.
2. Discuss Your Feelings About How Strictly The Constitution Should Be Interpreted.
How Flexible Do You Think The Framers Wanted The Constitution To Be?
I think the Constitution should be construed in a liberally based on its more general
doctrines. We ought to pick the fundamental principles underpinning the Constitution and use
them to guide our lives today. The Framers wanted us to use the Constitution to serve our needs
and interests rather than serving it. We should not constrain ourselves to the ideas of a past
generation of Americans who lived under different circumstances. Further, the question of intent
is a tricky one for no one can truly know what they intended with it. Judges should ensure the
Constitution is a living document.



3. What Do You Think Of The Bill Of Rights? How Important Is The Bill Of Rights
The Bill of Rights which is largely found in the Amendments to the U.S. Constitution is
an indispensable part of American democracy. Without individual freedoms and rights such as
the right to religion, fair trial, life, own property, and so on, our democracy would not function
well. History is full of incidents to show that governments are prone to take people’s rights often
in the guise of the “common good” and secure more power for themselves if not checked. The
Bill of Right ensures that the government can never take away certain inalienable rights and
liberties as the Framers thought these were given by God.
