I have a simple question. Its very straight forward so I wont complicate it too much.
Here it is:
To those that oppose direct democracy because of the fear that "the people" are irresponsible and would just vote themselves greater wealth; How do
you feel about the Federal Reserve that is composed of "responsible men" who have consistently voted themselves greater portions of the nations
Would it not make sense for the people to vote themselves greater shares OF THEIR OWN WEALTH instead of people whos wealth it is not?
How are the people represented in this representative republic of the USA when in government most people in any official capacity are either lawyers
or businessmen? Where are the scientists, engineers, laborers and other parts of life REPRESENTED in government?
Do you think that by visiting government as a scientist, engineer, farmer and so on when invited by these lawyers and businessmen for specific issues
actually constitutes being represented in any meaningful way?
We have bankers and lawyers voting themselves greater wealth...OUR wealth. How is that not the same evil of direct democracy? They have direct
democracy FOR THEMSELVES...It is a form of direct democracy in which the rest of the nation only gets some sparse "trickle down" consideration in the
form of supposedly being "represented" by these REAL citizens of the nation.
These bankers, businessmen and lawyers are the real citizens who have the power to do with OUR WEALTH and prosperity as they will. All of this
irresponsibility and greed is done under the guise of representative democracy and the farce of public good. What the law of the land actually is, is
direct democracy for some who use that power to vote themselves into prosperity at the expense of the nation.
I say let Joe do with his buck as he would see fit instead of Larry deciding how much Joe should get from each of Joe´s dollars. It cant be worse.
Have you seen our debt?
