What is the difference between direct and representative democracy?

In a direct democracy, all eligible citizens gather together to discuss policy and make the laws. Every decision is made by the body of all eligible citizens. In a representative democracy, eligible citizens select individuals to represent them a central location and make government decisions in their interest. The United States is a representative democracy with members of Congress being selected by vote of various groups of people. The Congress gathers and makes the laws. If the United States were to become a direct democracy, the Congress would be abolished and every eligible voter would be asked to vote on every proposed law, approve appointment to office, etc. Some of the ancient Greek city-states (most notably, Athens) were direct democracies, but with the body of eligible voters severely limited to males of a certain age and status.
