Please watch the video below and read the two attached articles. In a 500 word paper, analyze the arguments being made about democracy and America. Be critical and take a position on the points being made about American Democracy. By having a historical understanding of American government you can begin to deduce how American government was built to function and critique how it actually functions today.

Are the positions taken by the authors of the two articles below strong positions or are there flaws in their arguments?
