    Hello ladies and gents. I'm neither Democrat nor Republican, socialist nor capitalist and most of all I'm really against representative democracy.

    I support this piece of legislation with my heart and soul. I wish to spread the word and dispel the myths about direct democracy as it is proposed in its current form--which can become a reality if enough people get involved. This is the only way we'll have real change in our system.

    Rest assured, I'll be chiming in on plenty of issues on the board since it seems to have a diverse group of people here discussing (although few are ever likely to be swayed). What are my political views? They're pretty much all over the place.

    I thought Ravi was in charge of the day room.

    Typical of her to be out shopping when there's patients to watch.

    Direct democracy won't work on anything larger then a small community. Just like communism doesn't work on a large scale or socialism.

    There is legislation now that we could enact that would actually work. NI4D.us [Enter URL]. IF you give that site a look, you'll see that's it's not entirely what people have made it out to be. In fact, we would only be partner's with our so-called "representatives". Like I said, there are a lot of myths about direct democracy. I don't see why anyone with a good working brain wouldn't support it.
