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!

The Perthshire Heritage site reports that a Janet of this generation married mcrt 16 Oct 1504 William Livingston d Flodden 09.1513, son of William of Kilsyth. However, TSP Kilsyth refers to confusion about the spouses of the different generations of Williams and identifies the William who married Janet Bruce as son of the William who died at Flodden and identifies her father as Sir Robert of Airth. Accordingly, we place Janet a generation later see just above.
