No, in this remake, Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell, and William Barr are taking a quiet sledgehammer to our system of government, and still have another eighteen months to finish their, uh, crowning achievement. In crushing a wide array of historic customs and traditions, as well as openly defying the separation of powers, they have created a new model of executive royalty that, if allowed to stand, future occupants of the White House would be foolish to relinquish voluntarily. The Presidency is almost dead, long live the King.
Moreover, the composition of the Electoral College is not based on “one person, one vote,” as each state is given the same number of “electors” as it has members of Congress. That means that a state that is so small that it only has one representative in the House still has three “electors,” because it also has two senators. This construct insures that Electoral College has disproportionately higher representation of small states than simple population distribution would mandate.
We, the people.
Or is that the very reason they are so eager to destroy the Constitution now?
In short, we can envision a future in which progressives may actually attain the super-majorities needed to turn customs and traditions into law, to shore up laws that have been insufficient, and to even make the constitutional changes required to enable our government to keep pace with change. Perhaps the very first Constitutional amendment we envision is one that makes it easier to amend the Constitution.
