The supreme court is no longer fit for the 21st century and should be disbanded.

What good is the supreme court if it's just going to be a bunch of political hacks and the scales of justice have been tossed. At minimal several members should be impeached for their lies. In essence, the supreme court is rigged and is a burden on society. What value does it really serve now. It does not even follow precedence. How many decisions will they revisit and throw out. It has really become a bullshit entity. It is a national disgrace with rogue members.

5. My first thought too.

How do we change the Senate to reflect the population so all states get equal representation like Congress?

13. The senate is equal representation of the states

The senate was set up to give all states equal representation, more populous states get more in the house. If you look back the senate was supposed to be elected by the state houses, not the people. They where supposed to represent the states not the people of the state.

14. I worded it incorrectly I think.

I meant, isn't there a way to make the Senate like Congress, based on population? Bill Maher and others are complaining about this and I wondered if it can be changed and what would it take?

17. It would take a constitutional amendment.

And the hard part would be to get 3/4 or 38 states to agree to it. Do you really think there is a chance in hell that the smaller half of all the states would agree to lower their level of power at the federal level.

26. The Senate is Congress

Section 1: Congress
All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.


The Senate is part of Congress.

Jesus, they don't teach civics anymore.

6. Actually if we could get rid of the electoral college then the other things would just take care

of themselves. We have been living in minority rule for too many years.

18. That, would be a great start!!! Do it, and see how it goes. It's BS to have a popular vote

in a supposed democracy, and then some others can just override the popular vote. Many of our problems are really IMO do to a faulty design.

22. Exactly. Our government wouldn't function correctly without a high court but the

electoral college just isn't necessary.

One of them is an alleged traitor by marriage. We need a serious investigation.

9. 'Traitor by marriage'? You think that is a real thing? Maybe he is married to a traitor, but

that does not make him a traitor.

Clarence Thomas needs to resign.

Sadly, I'm unsure is either option is available.

12. And the Senate

What good is it? Our own "House of Lords" to placate our ruling class? Bah!

How about just the House of Representatives with the "original" Constitutional spelled-out number of representatives per 30,000 people?

Based on roughly the number of around 150 million registered voters, that would give us around 5,000 House members.

I bet we could get some coalitions then to pass legislation then, eh?

Out nation suffers from a LACK of representation. Fix THAT, and a LOT of other issues get fixed.

We'd be much better off if people focused their energies on electing more Democrats instead of floating ideas that have less than a zero chance of becoming reality.
