Get rid of Congress
October 23, 2013
Now that we have experienced another example of our dysfunctional Congress, we should consider a new way to self-govern. Yes, I say, self-govern, for that was our Founding Father’s intention with this Democratic Republic.
Our indirect Democracy, which the Fathers established, was a step forward, and logistically necessary under the circumstances! In 1776, with a population of approximately 2,500,000, it was impossible to get all those people into one building for one big town meeting.
We settled on a Democratic Republic, a Democracy with elected representatives to express our will and choose our direction accordingly. Well, sometimes it works; often it fails!
In a Democracy, the most important thing that you are not free to do is destroy that Democracy. Perhaps we should disband Congress if it does not stop dismantling our Democracy. We can now do that and govern ourselves by using computers as our voting both.
“Get rid of Congress, you say? Isn’t that a sacrilege or treason?” No, at this point in our history, it is common sense, and it may be the only way to save our Democracy. The people who are now destroying our Democracy are members of Congress, and they are the traitors!
