I believe that public policy should reflect the opinion of voters. Not that public policy should be created by officials who are most informed about the issues involved.

The truth is politicians for the most part are manipulating and deceiving. And what they tell us is not always what they do. So I believe that a direct democracy would be the best choice because people voice directly for what they want. Why indirect democracy is bad. lets say im bob and i am pro guns, pro environment, anti war and im part of the Lion political party. But the Lion political part believes in pro guns, anti war and doesn't give a sh!t about the environment. Then what im going to be voting for someone that for the most part agrees with me but i still dont get all my views properly voiced. There for if I am able to vote for things instead of politicians voting for me my views will be represented alot more accurately.
