mike gravel and democracy

here's a link to m g explaining about why he's running for president.

he understands the problems that are facing any parliamentary society, and proposes a solution based on 'democratizing' the federal government of the usa. these problems are even more evident in australia, but i pointed out that the solution is even easier for us in an earlier post, "revolution to democracy."

CIR's fair enough, but even should people get up and do the (enormous amount of) legwork, the model, implementation, conduct, etc will still be subject to executive whims.

Couple CIR with proportional representation in the House - now I'm enthusiastic. But unless a way can be found to politicise these things, the Duopoly can simply ignore all your passionate arguments.
