This is not a rant or a sloppy or idealistic "I have a dream" parody. This is a very well written and intelligent argument, as well as a creative and thought out proposal. I'm too cynical to have much hope for its implementation, but I always like rooting for an underdog (especially when it's such a strong and brilliant underdog).

I feel like Finally! Someone using some common sense! I'm tired of hearing the 'founding fathers' used as an excuse as to why something should or should not be done. I have as much respect for what they did as the next person, but I think we should be looking forward, and using our own brains to decide what is right/wrong. The representative democracy has failed us. It was created in a different era, and the idea that people are accurately represented by their congressperson is just not true anymore. Rush stops talking about the problems that we all agree exist, and gets down to details for a solution. Well done, Mr. Rush.

This is a radical, outside-the-box little manifesto -- it calls for replacing Congress (!) with Direct Democracy solving the problem of bought-out politicians at the root. What a concept. Mr. Rush makes a highly convincing argument that times and technologies have changed, and that the constitution must as well. This book is a great jump-start to the direct democracy pros and cons conversation.
