Whoa! Hold up...

It sounds to me like we are trying to fix the problem of our federal government not adhering to the principles of states rights and federalism by increasing the number of ignorant boobs in congress. We need to fix the system itself not tweak it and hope it works better that way. This fix to our problems seems like it would fit well with the problem solving skills of our federal government. "We need to add more regulation to fix the problem we created with more regulation." Adding more people to the lawmaking branch of our federal government risks putting more people in power who have no understanding of the constitution. I agree that our representatives should be more responsive to the people but that is a problem that our constitution already handles through federalism (the division of power between federal and state governments.) Much like Ron Pauls solutions to so many problems the answer here is also quite simple... we merely have to enforce the law that we already have!

With Respect... and In Liberty.
