Most of the Founding Fathers despised Democracy in Large Populations. That’s why they referred to our 1787 government as “the Great American Experiment”. Just like this TPP scam of Obama’s, the 1787 Constitutional Convention was debated in strict secrecy from the people. Mad Man James Madison (scared of Shay’s Rebellion) made everyone sign a non-dislosure agreement. The Anti-Federalists mutinied and refused to sign the Constitution without a Bill of Rights. Many of them, like Luther Martin, rep of Maryland, warned that representational democracy cannot work except in a very small population like a small Greek City State or Swiss Canton. Democracy failed under both Greater United Greece (Athens and Sparta) and the Massive Roman Empire where the corrupt Senate was finally just ignored by everyone.
The Anit-Federalists said it was nuts to even have a Senate Body which is comprised of noblemen and will always conspire with the President/King against the people. They said it was insane to send a senator away with his family to a far-off corrupt political city (Washington D.C.) for more than one year (six years) and no way to recall him for misbehavior. Indeed, it was nuts to no longer be the one paying his salary. And it was insane to appoint judges for life and no longer have a citizen jury on the highest court like we had for hundreds of years.
Most Americans don’t know it, but we didn’t found America with a President/King nor poor representation in 1776. We had one chamber of 2000 legislators and no Executive Branch at all. We had one local rep for about 300 landholders. Now in California, we have one rep for 744,000 people. You will never get to speak to your rep ever. This means you can’t ever get his attention unless you buy a 10,000 dollar/plate fundraiser dinner ticket.
This is not Democracy, it’s a Corporate Dictatorship concealed in a Fake Democracy.
The reasons for forming a huge Federal government are now obsolete since King George III was defeated and we rule the world. I propose we go back to the Articles of Confederation and close Washington D.C. and break Wall Street into a million pieces. Local Direct Democracy at the block level, just like Occupy Wall Street advocated, is the answer to all our ills.
