This discussion helps expose associated problems in government.

Even though I don't think it would be good to do this without making changes, it is a good thing to contemplate. Because of that, I think this topic doesn't deserve a bunch of down votes.

Most of what comes to mind are other problems that would have to be solved to make a populous vote work.

  • Better education for better decisions. Our schools don't teach people to think critically and independently. We need to teach rhetoric to protect people from rhetoric.
  • Much less law and simple law. We all can't be experts at existing legislation.
  • Real choice. The two party system is dumb. We need multiple candidates and multiple votes; voting for all the people we like
  • Voting for one bill at a time is dumb. Legislators/voters often think they have to vote for a shoddy bill or no bill at all. Alternative bills and multiple votes could make bills compete.

That's all I have time to contemplate for now.
