Giving John and Jane Q. Public the keys

By Richard K. Barry

If you ever needed proof that direct democracy would not be a great idea, consider the recent Fox News poll that found 58 percent would not vote to raise the debt ceiling. 

Most Republicans (78 percent) and a majority of independents (57 percent) would vote against raising the limit. So would almost all Tea Partiers (88 percent).

Government by plebiscite. That'll work.
