bbgun, is that you?
So, I'm a Ron Paul asswipe, eh? I would likely vote for him if given the choice to vote for him versus Obama. But the Republican party in general is too stupid to nominate Paul. And the general public on both sides is generally too apathetic. Anyway, Mike Gravel would be my President. Truthfully, the whole point of being a direct democracy advocate is because I don't really trust any politicians. Although I do think Ron Paul is the lessor of the evils, so-to-speak.
By the way? An Amendment would be required BEFORE any law could allow Direct "democracy" and I don't see that happening any time soon.
Just look at the sorry State California is in with their budget because of "direct democracy".

Any registered voter can vote for the legislation, or amendment.
It says I am unable to post URLs until after my 15th post. But wouldn't having the people writing our laws represent our interests better than the representatives?
Because we already have a good working Republic.
Working for who? More like a Banana Republic. If you think about it, representative democracy goes hand-in-hand with "Republic". Does it not? Do you think the representatives within the Republic are representing your interests well?
Thank You. I see at least a few of you have class, regardless of which respective side you're on.
Um, no we are a Constitutional Republic, the citizens of which are subject only to the rule of law, not men, as men are incapable of ruling justly and in particular, directly.
What makes the citizenry incapable?
I had class once..... well, many times..... for a very long period of time......
Which class did you have in mind? Upper, lower or middle?
