An American democracy, which is a combination of a republic and a democracy. We elect people to vote for us in the state legislatures and represent us on the national level. On a town level, there is a direct democracy on town issues that all registered voters in the town can vote for or against.

Massachusetts Bay Colony was formed by "The New England Company for a Plantation in Massachusetts Bay" in 1628, including some original colonists from the failed Cape Ann fishing settlement of 1624. The colony was considered self-governing, under the leadership of John Endecott and then John Winthrop (1630), because the emigrated directors bought out those who did not travel to America (the Cambridge Agreement of 1629).

Massachusetts Bay Colony had three royal charters

- from Charles I from 1628 to 1684

- from James II from 1686 to 1688

- from William III in 1681 (encompassed all Massachusetts colonies)
