86. I Was Speaking Strictly Of The Criminal Justice System

The point on not indicting a sitting President is an example of a 2 tier system of justice but that disappears once he is out of office.

On the Constitutional side of things you are absolutely correct. The Senate is a relic of the past. Get rid of that and the Electoral Collage and that opens us up to federal elections where, for instance, one House member would represent North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming combined. They may even need to include the panhandle of Nebraska to get enough people. There needs to be a commission, using a set of guidelines, that draws the House boundaries fairly based solely on the guidelines. Someone would need to verify the guidelines are strictly followed with changes made as necessary.

But I am not holding my breath that a single one of these things will happen in my lifetime.
