Weigh the advantages and disadvantages of the current democratic system. In the chapter on the presidency, for example, you must determine the most and least important presidential power.
I have some ideas like the pros are the checks and balances system that keep things equal but the cons are that pretty much any part of the government is slow at getting things done. Then again that can be a pro in the sense that things are rushed into and then often times regretted.
I just need help getting more ideas and to know if im on the right track.

Yes, you're on the right track.
What about the extreme partisanship we've seen in the last few years? What about the apparent paralysis in Congress?
On the other hand, what does the U.S. have that other democracies don't have?

The US has money is all i could come up with. But that isn't true since we are about 3+ Trillion dollars in deficit due to wars and many other things.

All countries have money.
Go back and study the chapters in your book.
