How has the American Revolution shaped democracy as you know it today?

The American Revolution gave the people the right to change their own government. It also gave the people the right to place restrictions on their own government. If the government puts in policies the people do not like, there is no coup d'état. There is simply the next election. Unlike Iran, the inability of one person to control all aspects created by the the Federal System and the division of powers, one person or group can not gain control over the election process. Thus, while corruption rules in some local areas, it can not seize control of the entire nation. For the most part however, The American Revolution did not have the purpose of creating democracy. It was more concerned with having a government that maintained order and security, giving the people the right to change the government if they did not like it, and with preventing the government from abusing the people. The idea that the government will feed and clothe everyone whether or not he is willing to work is French, not American.
