Affirming populist democracy
Synonyms: Advocating direct democracy
Description: Direct democracy, also known as "grassroots democracy" or "participatory democracy", refers to people directly making decisions for themselves.
Claim: 1. Advocates of direct democracy do not trust politicians to decide in our best interests. By now it is common knowledge that our elected leaders all too often fail to represent the majority. Rather they are puppets that take their orders from the upper classes since they are the major campaign contributers. The rest of us lack the money to be given anything more than lip service.
