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.
