The biggest issue, is the congress is still moving the goal post around as to who and how the representatives will be selected.

Maybe the commenters in on your local paper's website have a conservative leaning? After all it is a web poll :lol:

Regardless, the next few years are going to provide the journalists plenty of material to contort into clickbait.

Lol, yeah plenty of clickbait coming down the line .
Here's a poll, that amongst other things, finds that more people would prefer an average citizen over professionals such as constitutional lawyers or academics to draft a new constitution.
Yeah sure, how about a bikini model or someone who dresses as pikachu. We don't need no experts to tell us what to do.
Is this the sort of thing they mean when they talk about the "cons" of democracy? 🤔

I nominate bikini models and professional comedians to write the constution.

If a bunch of unqualified people are going to write the constution, they should at least be entertaining.

say, what ever happened to that nice dog that wondered on to the floor of congress last year?

Him too. Although he might be over qualified, and probably has better things to do.

Hell why not?
You know there's here's only two ways this thing can go really.
1.A complete screw up which leads to bad/unitended results from idiots/cunning types or
2. People all coming together all working as one and working for the good of the country which leads to good results.
🤔
You have to take a giant leap of faith to think number 2 will happen.

I'm 34. I don't believe in unicorns or rainbows......nor in constitutional guarantees providing something that does not actually exist without working to create it.
