There is actually very little difference between the two- most of the difference is political spin.In a dictatorship, usually one person or just a few will determine what laws are passed, who gets the benefits from government, and who gets to manage and run the programs the dictators have in effect. -In a democracy, the president gets to name who runs and manages the government programs, and it always goes to the donors that contribute to the particular political party that happens to be in power at that time. The political party that is in power is the one that gets the laws passed that they favor. While dictatorships usually are socialistic, and their laws favor the poor, our democracy practicies socialism in reverse- any time a large company or corporation is heading for bankruptcy, they rush to give them billions of taxpayer money to bail them out- this is socialism, but only the elite benefit from it. We have the best government that money can buy, and the corporations and the lobbist that bribe our politicians can attest to that fact.Hope this didn't confuse you, but rather made you think just a little about how things really are in this world.

In a Democracy, the people elect their leader, the leader serves until his term is up or until the people choose someone else to lead, the people will elect representatives to determine taxes and spending.
In a Dictatorship, the people have no choice who the leader is, the leader stays in office for as long as he wishes, he can tax as little or as much as he likes and spend this however he wishes.
In a democracy you have a choice. In a dictatorship you don't.
