This was my message to OWS, that 'never got through'...(http://betterliberalarguments.blogspot.com/2010/10/call-to-action.html)
We HAVE a democratic republic, right at our fingertips. We don't need a revolution, or direct democracy (we already have that too, they are called ballot initiatives). What we NEED is for voters to research (www.votesmart.org) before they vote, or to STAY OUT OF THE WAY. Under-informed votes are what are causing our corruption problems.
Congress has an approval rating in the teens, but gets re-elected most of the time. Clearly voters are doing a poor job enacting their will...
This is a democratic republic, we get the government we deserve, and right now, our actions suggest we deserve corruption.
