Now please accept that I am dealing with this from an Idealistic standpoint: Neither can exist, not Democracy, not Communism. Human nature will not allow it to.

Federalism is the dividing and sharing of power between state and national governments. Limited power means that the government is restricted by the laws and the Constitution and it has to operate within the framework of the laws and Constitution. Separation of Branches divides the government into the Legislative, Executive, and Judicial Branch, each with its own powers and duties. ( Full Answer )

The fastest answer is Athens, Greece around 510 BC. Athens was a powerful Greek city state that was in control of the city and the countryside neighboring the city. The democracy of Athens was a "direct democracy" in that the citizens voted directly on every issue to be considered by the community. … Direct democracy has a number of structural problems but the Athenians didn't have other examples to experiment with. One of the problems, from our modern point of view, is that the qualifications to vote in Athens while attempting to be universal still did not let everyone vote. Over time successful democracies became "representative democracies" whereby near universal vote (kids can't vote for example) produces representatives such as; Congressmen (MC), Senators, Members of Parliament (MP) who represent the citizens wishes (to one extent or another) in a Congress or Parliament.

The word "democracy" comes from the Greek meaning "rule by the people" or power to the people and the word "Republic" comes from the Latin meaning "of public affairs;" so they are so close in original source as to be hard to separate except by degrees. Republics can vary in considerable ways in rega…rds to how the country is run. Basically, as long as the country is not a Monarchy it is a Republic. Monarchies can have democratic elements and be more and more democratic to the point where the Monarch is a figurehead or performs the role of President in a Parliamentary form of government. One way this situation is described is as a "Constitutional Monarchy" wherein a written constitution describes limits on the monarchy and expresses powers to the citizenry. ( Full Answer )

The Greeks described Rome as a 'mixed constitution.' By this they meant that it did not fit into any particular political system and that combined a variety of features. In the early republic it was ruled by a circle of ex magistrates. Iteration, the election of the same people to the office of the …consulship for several times, was common. This was due to the need to draw from experienced officials as Rome was frequently under attack by neighboring peoples in the early to mid 5th century. The situation stabilised in the second half of that century but resumed after the Gallic sack of 390 BC. Iteration reached its peak with the Samminte Wars (343-290 BC). With the expansion of Rome into Italy, the (unelected) senate became the central decision-making body as it was equipped to deal with the complexities of expansion. Rome also became an oligarchy ruled by a patrician and (rich) plebeian nobility and the consulship was shared more widely from among the members of that elite. A law ruled that consuls could not be re-elected for 10 years. This was designed to eliminate iteration. Rome had two assemblies, one elected the higher officers of state and acted as appeal court for treason and capital punishment cases, but its voting system was heavily weighted in favour of the rich. The other one was nominally more egalitarian but it elected the lower officers of state (it also hard all other appeal cases). Therefore, there was a democratic element, but it was very limited and did not amount to power by the people which is what the Greeks meant by democracy. A plebeian council was created by the plebeians during their first rebellion. It was supposed to represent the interests and grievances of the poor, which to some extent it did. However, it was used by rich plebeians as an instrument for them to gain access to state positions and to power and to become part of the mentioned nobility. In short, Roman society was too complex to fit neatly into any category ( Full Answer )

The Roman Republic haddemocratic elements, but was not a true democracy. It was anoligarchy. The most powerful political body was the senate, whichwas unelected and represented the interests of the patricians (thearistocracy). The Republic was essentially an oligarchy run by thepatricians and the eq…uites (equestrians, the rich entrepreneurialgroup). The officers of state were from these two social groups anddefended the interests of these two groups. When their privilegeswere challenged, they could react with violence. There was an element ofdemocracy in Rome in that the officers of state were electedannually (apart from the censors whose office was 18 months). TheAssembly of the Tribes (where all citizens voted) elected thejunior ones (the aediles and the quaestors). The Assembly of theSoldiers elected the senior ones (consuls, praetors and censors)and also voted on bills. The Assembly of the Soldiers was only avery partially democratic body as the landless poor were excluded,its voting system was stacked in favour of the rich whose votescounted more who voted first and the small peasants often did nothave a chance to vote. The fact that this system was accepted showsthat the Romans did not really have a democratic mind and that theyaccepted power differences within the social hierarchy. The plebeians (thecommoners established the leaders, the plebeian tribunes, and theirassembly, the Plebeian Council, during a rebellion. It elected thetribunes and voted on bills. These laws were original binding onthe plebeians. Later they were made binding on the whole people,including the patricians. In the Late Republic the Gracchibrothers, plebeian tribunes who passed a law to redistribute landto the poor and agitated for their implementation, were suppressedwith violence. Later, this tribunate was coveted by people whocoveted it for their own political career and advantage, ratherthan for the benefit of the people. ( Full Answer )
