The intent of this blog is to promote human equality, human progress, human peace and justice, and optimism. To accomplish this, to encourage the discussion of ideas after identifying and discovering problems, and then creating positive solutions for "we the people," in order to provide for the "general welfare" and "domestic tranquility" of America now and its "posterity" into the future. To encourage an emphasis on separation of religion and state for all, no matter if this is for those "of faith" in a Maker / Creator (Deists, God-loving people, Christians, various people of spirituality) and atheists or agnostics.

Our American forefathers left us a great government. The problems it faces today is due to some Americans who do not work with reasoning and rationality by trying to destroy rather than reform. Add to this the ability of our Federal legislative to be run by politicians who are career lawyers, not representatives of the people, and we have a real problem. However, I remain optimistic that Americans can work together to solve our problems which result from human imperfections.


  1. Abolish the Electoral College
  2. Abolish the filibuster or else reduce the power of the U.S. Senate overall. It is said that the upper house, the House of Lords, in Britain, is just an elitist club and most laws in the British Parliament are made by a unicameral legislature or the lower House of Commons. The U.S. Senate gives too much power to states with small populations which have too much power to override what the majority of Americans want. For example, a state in the Rocky Mountain areas might have such a small population that the state has only two representatives in the U.S. House of Representatives, but has two senators. A more populous state like New York, Florida, or California, has dozens of representatives in the House of Representatives, but also has only two in the U.S. Senate. The power of the filibuster and other powerful mechanisms in the U.S. Senate give that body more power and the smaller populations have end up having more power. Not right. Either rid America of the strength of the U.S. Senate or make the U.S. Congress a unicameral legislative body made up of the House of Representatives.
  3. Abolish gerrymandering.
  4. Create a legislative body which requires alliances between the two parties with other political parties, in order to legislate with a majority. The time for the two-party system has come to an end.
  5. Abolish political party registration of voters and give voters a chance to vote in primary elections and state a political party at that time, not voting in primaries of both political parties, but only one.

Will these work? How the hell do I know? However, I offer an optimistic view for the future possibilities, not one of pessimism. We need to shed the pessimism and acknowledge that government and human institutions are imperfect.
