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!

i George Wright of Bolton-on-Swale 2nd son
Commoners mentions but does not follow the line of this George b 10.08.1662. Dugdale ends with this generation, showing a George b c1662. It is possible that this was the George of Bolton-upon-Swale b 1664, d 13.03.1722 who is the first mentioned in Walker's Yorkshire Pedigrees 1942, Wright of Bolton upon Swale and shows his descendants over several generations, but the birth date difference holds us back from making that assumption.
