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

Break 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!

MacDonald 6

: Macdonald of Achnancoichean, Macdonald of Garth, Macdonald of Kenknock, Macdonald or Macdonell of Keppoch, Macdonald of Tirnadris
Alastair was succeeded as head of his clan by his illegitimate son Angus until his legitimate son Ranald came of age.
The acknowledged family name appears to have varied between Macdonell and Macdonald over the centuries before settling as Macdonald or MacDonald. Somewhat arbitrarily, we settle on Macdonald from the 17th century.
