Direct Representation

What if you could choose between only these two breakfast cereals?

Even worse, what if you could choose only by majority vote?

We know there is a better way to choose our cereal,
so why can't we choose our government this way?


We can, in an open marketplace for representation, using our votes as currency. This is called Direct Representation.

What is Direct Representation?

Direct Representation means that citizens individually choose their representatives in a legislature instead of choosing them collectively in an election. It guarantees that everyone has a voice in government, and that everyone's vote has an effect. It makes government more stable, more accountable to the people, and less corrupt.
