Undercurrents for reform are expression of failed federal government political policy and legitimacy. There is mistrust, fear, and anxiety.
Decades of failed policy brings eight elephants: war, immigration, ecology, recession, foreclosure, joblessness, tax, and debt to middle America.
Rage inspired calls for change are negative, critical, loud, and potentially dangerous. This rage is beyond facts, truth, and reason. A forest of elephants is beyond facts, truth, and reason.
The outraged demand empowerment. This is demand to shape America’s destiny. The 1776 constitution was founded on one congressperson per 26,666 citizens. Today, this calculates to 11,500 congresspersons (307million/26,666). There is plenty of room in an 11,500 congress for new dynamic members, ideas, and destiny. There is scant room in today’s 535 congress.
Conspiracy theorys (roswell, JFK assassination, BP, 911, Apollo, etc.) come from the underpowered without means to verify the facts. Dynamic new congress members, in an 11,500 congress, have the means to resolve conspiracies, set priorities, and return to fact. Without this empowerment, anger and conspiracy theories persist.
Congress must expand to allow “tea parties”, “coffee parties”, libertarians, “sharians”, socialists, skin heads, and communists. America is a diverse place. Congress is where all this diversity comes together. This requires an 11,500 member congress, a multiple president executive branch, and a proactive judicial.
Sortition is where science meets politics. Sortitioned legislators are the conscience, heart, and soul of democracy. Elected legislators are the logic and mind of democracy. Heart and mind together achieve a proud and limitless future. This is dynamic adjustment for a dynamic second millennium.
A 12,000 congressperson legislature and a 9 president executive is a big tent. This tent has room to coral eight elephants: war, immigration, ecology, recession, foreclosure, joblessness, tax, and debt.
Bad service requires more waiters. Fires everywhere requires more fighters. Crime requires more police. Elected oligarchy requires more congresspersons. Elected monarchy requires more presidents. America lacks governance? Keep the congress and add 11k more. Keep the president and add 8 more. Democracy disperses power. Autocracy consolidates power. Step it up, America. Be proactive. Check out plan-b.
Citizen is coach to team democracy. Coach is responsible for success. It’s your call, coach.
