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!

ii Adam de Keith a 1296, 1324
iii Robert ? de Keith
TSP reports "It may have been another son of Sir John de Keth who married Joanna, eldest daughter of William de Galbrathe son of Sir William Galbrathe by a daughter of Sir John Cumyn of Badenoch. She was heiress of Dalserf, and died in 1301. They had issue Bernard de Cathe of Keth a Sir Bernard de Keth appears in 1307, attached to the English interest.". The article on Bardowie in 'The Old Country Houses of the Old Glasgow Gentry' identifies Janet Keith shown below, wife of Sir David Hamilton as "heiress through her mother of the Galbraiths". This suggests that it was this son Robert?'s son Sir William who married Joanna de Galbrathe but TSP suggests a generation earlier.
