Comment: Republic

(See in situ)


The republic is a brilliant idea for the following key reasons:

1) Only the people who care enough about what is happening will get involved, and these people who care enough are likely IN THE KNOW.

2) Those who don't care enough to know will not care enough to make decisions and can live their lives care free of government should they chose with minimal effect on those who care

This is why the concept of the tireless minority is so good and why true democracy where anyone can vote policy at any time regardless of how stupid they are leads to tyranny BY majority.

The 17th amendment is really what BROKE our republic and repealing it is KEY to any hope we have.
