That leads to today's post in the Oregonian. I'd read that protest camps tended to rely on caucuses and consensus rather then voting to make decisions, but I didn't know their contempt for voting ran so deep:
"We are demanding that we stop trying to solve problems in a "vote yes, vote no" format. We are making a statement that they cannot and will not be resolved simply by electing a different puppet into the same political structure..."How do these people reconcile themselves with the history of struggle and sacrifice aimed at extending voting rights? Do they think that was just a waste of time? Gaining majority support is hard and uncertain, but without it there is no legitimacy. Demagoguery is a poor substitute for democracy.
