The 1790 constitution was a revolutionary document written for 2.4 million protestant farmer colonists. In 2010, the 1790 constitution applies to 307 million citizens. As a ratio of citizens per congressperson, Americans today has less than 5% representation in government than existed in 1790. 1790 government representation today, requires one congressperson per 26,666 citizens or 11,500 congresspersons.
The 2010 congress is an elected oligarchy, not a republic, not a democracy, and a shadow of its 1790 self. The proportional difference between congresspersons of 1790 and 2010 is the difference between democracy and elected oligarchy. America lacks governance.
America is besieged by eight elephants: war, immigration, ecology, recession, foreclosure, joblessness, tax, and debt. America’s elected oligarchy is incapable of getting traction on these issues. Elected oligarchy governs without consensus. Issues govern. America’s elected oligarchy squabbles. America lacks governance.
12,000 congresspersons is not big government. The pentagon (26,000 employees), the IRS (93,000 employees), and the presidency (1.5 million employees) are big government. Huge pyramidal bureaucracies are the organizational structure of elected oligarchy posing as democracy, posing as governance. America lacks governance.
Far left democrats see it. They want “bigger government” because they want governance. The Tea Party sees it. Americans, today, are taxed at 5% 1790 representation. The Tea Party wants to “take back America” because they want governance. Both political factions are unhappy for the same reason. America lacks governance.
12,000 congresspersons are the left wing “bigger government”. 12,000 congresspersons is Tea Party “take-back” government. 12,000 congresspersons establish firm middle American control of government. 12,000 congresspersons is consensus-based government, not seen in America for over 150 years, capable of governance, and capable, again, of greatness.
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.
