Immediate fixes needed to the US constitution
Confidence: Very likely
The first principle of organizing society demonstrates some immediate fixes that need to be made to the US constitution:
- Abolish the Senate. All its non-legislative duties devolve to the House of Representatives.
- The Senate gives sixty times more representation to residents of Wyoming than to residents of California. In 2020, half the Senate represents only 15% of the population of the country. The Senate was a compromise to get the fractious states to approve the constitution in the 18th century. It has no purpose today.
- Abolish the electoral college. The president is elected directly by all voters.
- The electoral college makes
- The federal government shall enforce good voting practices.
- The states must make a reasonable attempt to register and provide mail in ballots to all citizens residing therein. The states will apportion representation by a mechanism that avoids conflict of interest with with parties and group seeking election. The federal government shall make and enforce laws to enforce this on all states.
