    "If you don't participate in power, you are not free. Whoever has the power owns you. If you want to be free you have to participate in power.
    Power is lawmaking; if you don't participate in lawmaking, all you can do live by the laws that are made for you. Either you live by their laws or you go to jail. Those who make the law have the power to make you free. On election day, you give your power away.
    Follow the logic: If freedom is participation in power and power is lawmaking, then freedom is participation in lawmaking.
    The key to freedom is the National Initiative: it gives the people the tools to make laws, to vote on all the issues that effect their lives. Now THAT is freedom. The crux of the National Initiative is to share power and have freedom.

    The National Initiative for Democracy



    I voted for it. It's a great think for people of various political backgrounds, I think.

    Mob rule is a lynch mob.
    Direct democracy is exactly that. What a joke. We need to restore the representative republic and return to being a nation of law.

    Direct democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner.

    Wolves (or people that fancy themselves as wolves) don't see a problem with that.

    No, THAT is tyranny.

    This very thread demonstrates why your proposal is idiocy.

    Without an Amendment to the Constitution direct democracy at the federal level is Unconstitutional. Doesn't matter what law they pass.
