Proposed Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY FOR THE MODERN ERA


CONCLUSION

America has enjoyed a long run of success with a Federal government system designed by the Founding Fathers in the late 18th century. As proof of their visionary powers, the makers of our Constitution encouraged those who came after them to change it as necessary to keep pace with new developments. The dimensional transformation of the nation over the past two centuries strains an antiquated system struggling to cope with current demands, and urges us to heed this advice. The amendment proposed here offers significant enhancement of governmental representation, effectiveness, and accountability while substantially heightening attractiveness of public service. Such fundamental redesign of the structure, functioning, and electoral processes of the executive and legislative branches promotes our quality of life, standard of living, and position in the world.
