    They are not talking about direct democracy, and you are just throwing out names of systems you think gives you credibility.

      They are not talking about direct democracy,

      Which means they are clearly talking about breaking 240 years of our democracy since we don’t have direct democracy. This is part of the GOP’s War on Democracy and the Traitorapist Trump neofascism movement to crush our longstanding core American values of democracy, freedom, and the rule of law.

      Direct democracy does not work well on any stage higher than locale elections. Its too easy to manipulate people with cheap populism and false promises. See Brexit.

        Thats what I have been trying to say, but everyone is freaking the fuck out. Literally its the most obvious statement if people just think about it for a second.
