    ? Time for a revolution and change USA government structure since we have a Congress that can't

    agree on the toppings of a pizza?

    Keep the 100 Senators but reduce the numbers of the 434.

    Each congressperson in the House of Representatives represents one congressional district, which contains roughly 600,000 people. Let's change that to 6 million people but with at least 2 congressman per state.

    Or throw the whole lot out and go to a parliamentary democracy?

    What you Americans really need to do is to ditch the system that you have now completely. It needs to be replaced with a constitutional monarchy, a parliament that is directly elected by the people, with a Prime Minister that is appointed by the King/Queen, but who must command a majority in Parliament. The presidency should be abolished. It can nowadays only be won by very rich people or conpersons, or rich conpersons. It can only get worse.
    Do all those things and your country might have a chance to prosper.
    Oh Dear! that's how you were in 1776.
    To quote Chico Marx.  "Whata mistaka to maka".

    Be careful what you wish for.  The word "revolution" is a strong one.  In other countries people have revolted only to find they had no clue as to how to run their countries.  We can change things by voting.

    You are right, Europe's government are so much better.  Socialism and Marxism are so much better than freedom.  You have got to be kidding!!!  Healthcare alone disproves this notion.  Where do people come for advanced treatment?  Europe?  Canada? No, the US, because we offer the best healthcare in the world.  We are the freest country in the world, as we move away from the Constitution we are losing more and more of those freedoms.  The problem is that more and more people rely on the government.   Half of the people in this country pay income taxes, half are being pulled by the other half.  People need to take responsibility for their own destiny.  I am all for safety nets, but we need to return to a society that says if you don't work, you will not eat.  Jesus said that.  He also said it is better to teach a man to fish then to give him dish to eat. If you don't like the Constitution move to Europe.

    I have a question for ercramer36,

    Wasn't it Jesus who said in Matthew 19:21  "... give to the poor"?

    Yes it would be better to teach than give but that didn't mean don't give a man water when he is thirsty or no coat when he is cold.

    The picture is a little small but this is what it says in part:

    Jesus of Nazareth says, "Give to him who begs from you, and do not refuse him who would borrow from you" -  !Jesus favors more government handouts for welfare cheats!

    Jesus of Nazareth says, "Judge not, that you be not judged." - !Jesus is soft on crime!

    Jesus of Nazareth says, "Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's - !Jesus will raise your taxes!

    Jesus -  wrong on social services, wrong on crime, wrong for defense, wrong for America.

    I don't see parliamentary democracies doing much better.  Isn't that so, Greece?

      Nothing is perfect. But can't we least say there is room for improvement? How about going back to the original intent of our founding fathers then and quit make money a form of free speech and corporations are 'people'??
