I do not support anarchy or a wildly different form of gov't. More
representation (mean tighter controls and shorter terms) would be where
I would like to see it start. Corruption (greed) is a nature of man. You

absolutely nothing in the constitution about that. That happened
somewhere around (IRC) 20 years after the swearing in of Washington.
