I say this simply because the Republican Party are misrepresenting the facts about it when they explain things to their constituents, which speaks to an ulterior motive. I think proxies are subject to manipulation, but so is a quorum, and so is an online vote. So... basically what I’m saying is that the practical application of representative democracy is ineffective and inefficient, as is any other form of government beyond the utterly draconian. ANARCHY BURGER!!!!
