With the rise of technology over the past few decades, is it possible for America to have a direct democracy? Congressmen/women can be used as middlemen. They manage the votes and try to sell bills to the public. The public then goes online and votes or goes to the nearest voting facility to cast their vote over an internet enabled computer. Maybe it can be used for bills over a certain dollar value or part of specific categories (health, economic, defense, etc.). Maybe it can be used for all bills that involve the government taking on debt. Another thought I had was letting Americans pick where their tax dollars go. There would be critical categories that everyone contributes to (fire, police, defense, etc.) and then there would be other categories that let you choose where your money goes. A category may be education. In that category, you must pick at least 2 items, and you must spend at least 10% of your tax dollars in this category. My mind is scattering now... Discuss.
