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!

Wright 6

: Wright of Downham, Wright of Kilverstone, Wright of Little Buckenham, Wright of Wangford
Commoners reported that "The Wrights of Kilverstone, one of the oldest families in Norfolk, and contemporaneous with the Bedingfields, Jerninghams, Pastons, and Woodhouses, have been seated in that county time immemorial. Owing, however, to the destruction of deeds and other documents, which were lost, with a great portion of the ancient property, by the negligence and dishonesty of guardians in long minorities, their descent can only now be authentically traced to the time of Henry VII."
