Ok, one of the worst aspects of our government is the plurality voting system which makes elections uncompetitive and forces citizens to vote for the lesser of two evils so the worst guy doesn\\\'t get elected. Why in the world would you not want to do anything about that? You could use approval voting, range voting, the Condorcet method. Even instant runoff voting is better than plurality. Why would you stick with plurality?

I agree with serious dialog. Find it difficult to believe that States would ratify because it takes away too much patronage. Found link on
page on Rewriting the Constitution. Just read Kevin Bleyer\\\'s \\\"Me the People\\\" which is sophmoric but does get you thinking along with the laughs.

I think the Constitution-21 is brilliant and should be the beginning of some serious dialogue.

Constitution will never be approved by any one state, let alone 2/3.
