The definition of democracy describes how citizens of the country have right to choose their capable leader. The citizens distinctly does not have the power to choose the president because of the electoral college. The electoral college is unfair and not democratic.

The executive branch is given too much power from the Constitution, and there is a probability of it becoming a monarchy soon. The Federalists could argue that a strong national government is needed to deal with problems, like trade and defense, but that does not counter the fact that they carry an army during peacetime, and it could be used to suppress the people. They might also say that a strong executive branch is necessary to to fulfill its responsibilities, this can be countered by the fact that one branch should not be stronger than the others, that was the whole point of the three branches. In conclusion, the Constitution has many errors that need mending.
In an attempt to change the Articles of Confederation, the Convention created the executive branch to unite the country with a single leader. Even though the delegates wanted to consider the wishes of the citizens, they did not trust that they would make an educated decision. As a result, they formed the Electoral College. The Electoral College consists of 538 electors who indirectly elect the president and vice president. Each states’ entitlement of electors is equal to the sum number of their senators and representatives.

Machiavelli and the United States Constitution clearly disagree on this policy since Machiavelli argues there should be more control in how government is run. That's not the way the Founding Fathers wanted this country to run since it limits the people's power in
One defining feature of democracy is that all people are equals, and America was certainly not displaying that at all. One of colonial America’s works in progress were individual or human rights. While white, Christian males were given rights, many others didn’t share the same privileges.

“That whenever any form of Government becomes destructive of these ends (rights), it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it and to institute a new Government”- Thomas Jefferson. T.J. states that in order to have a good government the people must have the power to change or abolish their system and create a new one. But in the constitution there was no system of rotation for a president. He could remain an officer for life. This would to a tyrant something the citizens and founding fathers fled Europe from.
Anthem’s society is not free to have marriage and could lead to punishments. The novella explains that to keep everyone equal, they must not look to others. In conclusion, “Harrison Bergeron” by Kurt Vonnegut Jr and Anthem by Ayn Rand concludes that love and marriage are not similar in both dystopian societies.

George and Hazel can live with each other, their society has restrictions for people to be equal but not with marriage nor love.
I 'm not saying that’s the case with all families, but it is in most. Rebecca Solnit 's’ essay “More Equal Than Others” talks little about the husband in the marriage having control over his wife and the marriage not being equal. Back into the 1700s and the 1800s, laws defining marriage made the husband essentially an owner and the wife a possession. (3) In 1765, Williams, Blackstone, British Judge, wrote: “ By marriage, the husband and wife are in person in law; that is, the very being or legal existence of the woman is suspended during the marriage, or at least incorporated and consolidated into that of the husband…” (3) This shows that women have no say in their marriage and basically is just there to look good on her husband’s arm.
