    An excellent proposal.
    Rather than banning and repealing, I'd say that the citizens and politicians should study and try to understand..Those who cannot or will not read should return to being floor-sweeps.

    I would eliminate corportate personhood. Rollback the SCOTUS Citizens United decision.

Or the vice president being the person who got the second most amount of votes? That part was a keeper. I don't get why people have this idea "the founders set it up, so that's always the best way to do it" mentality.

    I have to wonder if the anti 17th amendment people ever looked at what happened back then. Most of the time, the senate seat would just become a bargaining chip for political maneuvering in the state house. Deadlock would lead senate seats unfilled for months at a time. They'd almost always be some of the biggest political insiders you've ever seen. And you think having senators be chosen by politicians would be good for this country? weird.

    What's unfortunate is that I'm left with little doubt as to the seriousness of your proposal.

    You think Redress is serious or am I misreading your post?

    Mandate that the size of the house be increased until each member represents a population approximately equal to that of the least populous state.

    I heavily support this.

    Thats a really good idea. We should do the same with the electoral college.

    I hope Redress is just kidding. Does Redress realize that he probably has more in common with libertarians than he does with conservatives?

    If we did one, we'd do the other. Since the EC is dependent on how many representatives you have + the number of senators, it'd grow the college.
