Re: Just what AT&T needs
Hell no! We need another bloodless revolution like the one which transitioned this nation ftom the Articles of Confederation to our current Constitution. We simply need to scrap it. The main thing which needs to go away is the Two Party system. It simply doesn't work. The second problem is the Senate. It is silly that Montana has the same representation there as California. That is undemocratic not to mention foolish. I understand it was a necessary compromise to get the Rhode Islands and Delewares to ratify the Constitution but it has gone on long enough. Of course the Electoral College would go away for the same reason. We need direct representation by the people. Also election day should be a Holiday with all polls open at the same time on the same day. This would neutralize the phenomenon we see today where the early primary states hold undue influence over the later ones. Many times by the time we reach Super Tuesday the issue has already been decided. That is not fair. To remove the Two Party System we would need a division of power in the two houses that apportioned seats by population with one percent of the popular vote garnering at least one seat. The parties would no longer appoint Senators and House Reps to committee positions. These would be voted upon by the entire body with a limit to the number of seats one member hold.
Let's start with the fact that this country was not founded as a Democracy.
Once you get that ingrained then you will be on the road to recovery.
If you are fine with the major population centers setting all policy, then continue with your screed.
At that point we will continue on our downard spiral towards socialism.
