Well, I am going to go out on a limb

Response to Naw, the problem there is the need to form a government


If the House was built along different lines than the Senate, and the Senate remained two per state, voted in versus appointed, as has been ammended, then the question I ask is:

How do you redraw the map? (How do you bell the cat?)Or do you even bother with districts at all? If not via districts, how then to apportion the 435, or whatever, seats? Dissolving the States strikes me as an enormous risk to the balance, and for that matter the practical administration, of local and more macro scale authorities.

And then, is the Executive Branch still in the same position 'balance of powers' wise, or can it even better divide and conquer, since we would still have to retain the deliniation between Executive and Legislative functions or basically rewrite the entire system of government from the ground up.
