This actually does raise the legitimate question as to how direct of a democracy the founding fathers really intended to create. Joe Miller, a Tea Party candidate for the Senate in Alaska a few years back, was a proponent of this plan as well. He didn’t win; it seems that asking people to elect you to the Senate so you can take away their right to elect other people to the Senate in the future isn’t a winning campaign strategy (although Miller seems to be mulling a comeback, so what do we know). Anyway, this Georgia proposal will almost certainly go absolutely nowhere. source

Would you vote for a guy whose entire policy platform involved letting people directly vote on every bill that passed his desk? That’s what Oregon resident Daniel Hollingsworth, who is running for Senate in 2014, is hoping for. Good idea or bad? (via Hacker News)
