If the majority (or more) of the public is unsatisfied with a government official, should the official be obligated to resign?

Well, sure. Isn't that the equivalent of losing an election?

No it isn't equivalent.

Its later in office. Progressives have been pushing for direct democracy since the 1890's. Higher office recall movements have dissipated, but there is still a movement for judicial recall. Judges often abuse their power as they are not individually elected.

And that's exactly how it should be. Direct democracy.

Direct democracy with a balance of representational democracy.

Directly elect our representatives, instead of distributing and the electoral college.

Oi, i know we disagree on somethings but this is something we agree on. Electoral colleges being bad.

The only reason we still have it is because of the GOP. They are scared of losing their influence in a direct democracy. They coin it mob rule, even though that's what democracy should be.

Abolishing electoral colleges would be a step in direct democracy. Imagine it; Gore being president instead of Bush.

President Teddy instead of Woody Wilson XD

We would of had a third party as president. A liberal progressive party at that.
