Some are against Direct Democracy because they fear that poor people, who outnumber the rich, will vote for more government welfare services for themselves and higher taxes for the rich.
Welfare A number of changes to our welfare system could be made to prevent a Robinhood government and still provide for the poor. Workfare, government jobs providing services for the state and public good, could replace welfare checks for the poor. Workfare jobs could also help provide food for the poor and housing for the poor. Prison inmates, who are currently forced to work for private industry at low wages, could instead provide food and other services for the poor, mostly benefiting their own communities. Charities for the poor could provide further help if the government altered Inheritance Tax and Exemptions for Charities.
But most importantly, government measures that tend to create economic disparity could be eliminated. These include the Federal Reserve banking system, corporate taxes on small businesses, and regulations that tend to benefit big business.
