  •  I think there is a trade-off (0+ / 0-)

    I've suggested in the past that a good way to get more democracy into the system is to convince social conservatives that their best hope for success against a Republican establishment that holds them back is to get on board with certain process reform ideas, such as instant run-off voting.

    One of my ideas would be to make it possible to amend the Constitution via either a national referendum (with some sort of super-majority requirement) or through a referendum in each state.  I think this makes it easier for good reforms, but also makes it easier for bad amendments to be attached to the Constitution.
