The government is something powerful. Something that was founded a long time ago. It was originally supposed to be run by the people but some governments have wavered from their originality. The government was made to govern the people for their safety and rights. Kind of like a king does to his people, but just a little more modern. There are things that government can do, but there are also things they can’t do. For instance, the government can make a law in their own state. But they can’t do it without permission from the highest authority.
