Republican and Representative Form of Democracy
The United States Constitution provides for a Republican/representative form of democracy yet many states and localities allow for direct democracy through ballot initiatives, referendum, and recall. Develop a paper in which you identify and assess arguments in favor of and against both representative and direct democracy. Drawing on your assessments of representative and direct democracy, develop an argument in which you advocate for one form of democracy over another. Do not equivocate. There is no right or wrong answer.
