LET THE DEBATES BEGIN
1. Give the winner of the popular vote in Presidential elections 50 electoral votes. That would give more reason to capturing more votes than your opponent. Isn't that the premise of all elections? He/she who gets the most votes wins?
By giving the popular vote winner one electoral vote that makes the electoral college system truer than the present usage.
One electoral vote per state is the reward for winning the popular vote. For example, if Iowa gives 10 electoral votes to the winner of the popular vote in that state why not give one vote per state to the winner of the popular vote. Why not?
This would fix the Electoral College system without destroying it altogether.
2. If laws are enacted that state any proposition must pass by two-thirds of the voters such propositions mandating 2/3rds ceiling to pass should pass by two-thirds of the voters. Think about it. It defies logic to mandate a 2/3rds requirement to pass legislation by a simple majority of the vote.
If it's good for the goose why not the gander? Makes sense, right?
Next time you run into an elected official ask them about the two ideas above.
Watch them dance.

First an idea then comes the solution.
