    Default Given that we now have the technology to vote directly from our home (think...

    ...big brother but more secure)...? Is there any point in a representative government? If the people can directly vote on important issues (rather than puttin power into the hands of a few elected representatives) - this will enfranchise the ordinary person and remove an unneccesary, expensive and manipulative layer of buerocracy. What are the arguments against this form of government?
    Is it that we don't trust ourselves?

    The general population doesn't understand, nor do they have the time to understand the issues at hand. I am AGAINST having the general population vote because then guess who is going to control the country:

    Not the people - but a few rich people in the media!
