We need to have a referendum, where people of this country would vote on certain issues. The results would be binding, would not be a subject of political horsetrading, or even presidential veto. Yes, there is a risk, that some voters might base their beliefs on complete nonsense, but I believe in this country, and I think its citizens deserve more credit, than they are given, and common sense would prevail. Case in point - over 70% of people in this country support raising taxes for the rich.
It would be so easy to do in the age of internet and lo and behold we would have a democracy. To my eye that is the biggest problem with our democracy - we don't have any. We have corpocracy, that is destroying this country and its people in the name of the corporate profits.
