This blog describes some ideas that seem to be different from the current train of political thought. I will try to bring up somewhat unique and innovative ideas regarding political systems and policies in the US. I hope those who comment also bring in such ideas.

Re-divide the States

After 200+ years of the United States, many things have changed. It makes little sense to have the "13 Original Colonies" still have the same geographic boundaries (excepting Virginia). It really is time to remix the state boundaries so that the states have roughly equal size and representation. It should be remixed every 200 years as conditions change. We should not be tied to an inefficient system from the past. The principle is representation and balance of power - not geographic boundaries.

Roundup of Honduras: Crisis averted, More problems ahead

I was very happy to see that Honduras maintained it's constitution and order throughout the Mel crisis. However, Lobo does not seem to be standing up for liberty the same way Michaletti did, which is very unfortunate. I worry about where Honduras is headed.

I would like to see Michaletti recognized for saving the constitution of Honduras. A resolution in the US congress or state congresses would be an excellent method. Perhaps various 4th of July celebrations where awards are given out for promoting freedom would be appropriate. The power and vision of his leadership is more apparent with Lobo in charge.
