    is the one thing I would do to change the Constitution. I think the founders figured that Representatives would serve that function, back in those agrarian/"the office holder is nearby" days.

    They had figured their system would be the best way to stymie corruption and factionalism, but they didn't foresee the economic power-houses of our day; nor the psychological distance between the people and the officers.

    As to the Amendments presented in this Congress: they range from silly to pointless.


    Markos! Not only are the Gates Not Crashed, they've fallen on us. Actual Representatives are what we urgently need, because we have almost none.
