Response to DemocracyMouse (Original post)

12. I like your list a lot but have a few questions and additions:

First, what do you mean by "third parties can have representation proportional to their membership?" My feeling is that third parties can have representation proportional to how many people they elect, as is the current case.

But I would also add:

Strip any war declaration powers from the President. Put them back in the hands of the Congress. Also, strip sole control of the nuclear arsenal from the President. The President should have to get the approval of the Speaker and the Senate Majority leader as well as the minority leaders of both houses.

Restore DACA and make it permanent.

Re-staff all departments especially the diplomatic corps. Create certain administrations positions in the diplomatic corps that can only be fired by the party that appointed them so you don't have this completely ignorant crew running our diplomatic efforts.

Also, not everyone drives, so a mail in registration form to everyone who gets an electric bill allowing every eligible house member register by mail.

I'm sure I'll think of twelve more as soon as I hit "post."

But thank hhou for a good list.
