It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system
so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

Make the Electoral College a permanent government body with seat distribution proportional to the party tally in each state and give it the right to approve cabinet members and under secretaries instead of the US Senate!

Sir Robert de Bruce, 2nd Lord of Annandale b c1103, d 1194

2. William de Bruce, 3rd Lord of Annandale b c1142, d 1215
m Christina she m2. Patrick, Earl of Dunbar see note below
A. Sir Robert de Bruce, 4th Lord of Annandale d 1245
m Isabel de Huntingdon b 1206, d c1251, dau of David, Earl of Huntingdon
Isabel was a niece of the Scots Kings Malcolm IV and William 'the Lion'. It was because of this connection that her great-grandson Robert became entitled to claim the throne.
i. Sir Robert de Bruce, 'the Competitor', 5th Lord of Annandale b 1210, d before 03.05.1294
m1 1240 Isabel de Clare b 1226, d 1254, dau of Gilbert de Clare, 1st Earl of Gloucester, 5th Earl of Hertford
a. Sir Robert de Bruce, 'Earl of Carrick', 6th Lord of Annandale b 07.1243, d by 04.04.1304
Sir Robert's 1st wife is normally recorded as Marjory, Countess of Carrick. However, as reported on RZmisc02, it seems that the Isobel who married Thomas Randolph was Robert's daughter before his marriage to Marjory. As he was about 28 at the time of that marriage, it is quite possible that he did have an earlier marriage or perhaps more likely 'a liaison'.
