Talk:Debate: Direct democracy
Article 1 Section 9 Paragraph 7&8 of the US Constitution stipulates: "No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law; and a regular Statement and Account of the Receipts and Expenditures of all public Money shall be published from time to time."
"No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State."
Where did the banker bailout money go? Where does the Defense spending money go? Why do the Bilderbergs and Trilateral commission choose our president? Every congressman should offer the constituents a chance to vote on the laws and appropriations. Our curren form of government is a plutocracy.
