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!

Graham 7

: Graham of Airth, Graham of Boquhapple, Graham of Gartavertane, Graham of Gartmore, Graham of Glassford, Graham of Menteith Monteith, Graham of Mount Keanston, Graham of Rednock
Malise Graham, 1st Earl of Menteith b c1407, d before 19.05.1490
Malise inherited the title of Earl of Strathearn/Strathern from his mother but King James I conferred that title upon his uncle Walter and replaced Mailse's earldom with that of Menteith often spelled "Monteith". Malise's first wife is identified as Ann Vere by BE1883 Graham of Strathern , etc but as Jane de Rochford by TSP Menteith. BE1883 identifies Alexander, John and Walter as being by Ann Vere as seems Euphame as well. the second John and Walter seem to be by his second wife as indicated by TSP.
m1 Ann de Vere dau of Henry de Vere, Earl of Oxford or Jane de Rochford
1. Alexander Graham dvp before 19.04.1471
2. Patrick Graham of Kilpont, Craiguchty and Auchmore dvp c1488 ?
m c24.01.1455-6 Isobel Erskine dau of Thomas Erskine, 2nd Lord
A. Alexander Graham, 2nd Earl of Menteith d before 27.02.1536-7
This Alexander is shown by BE1883 and some other sources as being son of the 1st Earl's son Alexander rather than of Patrick. We follow TSP.

i William Graham, 7th Earl of Menteith, Earl of Strathern, 1st Earl of Airth & Menteith b 1589, d 1661
Showing what may be described at best as a foolish want of tact, Earl William previously high in royal favour, having been appointed President of the Privy Council, etc, following an initially successful attempt to reclaim the earldom of Strathern see note above, made issue of the argument that his descent from David Stewart, Earl of Strathearn elder son of King Robert II by his second marriage gave him a stronger claim to the throne than King Charles I whose descent from King Robert II's eldest son by his first marriage was open to doubt because of uncertainties of the legality of that marriage see note at the top of Stewart02. The King showed who was boss, deprived the Earl of his offices, forced him into internal exile, and reduced the precedence of the 300-year old earldom of Menteith by replacing it with a new earldom of Airth, although the name Menteith was added to the title.
