Top lobbyist reveals views on democracy

Paul Miller, former president of the American League of Lobbyists, tells the Austin American-Statesman what his ilk really thinks of democracy:

"I don't think the way you advocate is to put everything online and say, 'All right American people, weigh in on that,' because then what's next?" Miller asked. "Are we going to let the American people decide our defense policy, our trade policy, our immigration policy?"

Letting the people decide, one shudders to think of it.
