The number of elected representatives in the United States House of Representatives in the United States Congress should be increased from the current 435 to more that 3,000, so that there is one elected representative for every county in the United States of America, whose vote in the United States House of Representatives is weighted according to the size of the population of the county that he or she represents.
This significant change would make the United States House of Representatives much more democratic and much more likely to approve federal policies and laws which the majority of United States citizens support.
The ultimate objective is to enable every United States citizen aged eighteen years and over to vote voluntarily via the internet or via telephone on every issue that their elected representatives currently decide on their behalf, so that the majority will of United States citizens is reflected in every issue decided in the United States House of Representatives.
The United States Senate should be abolished on account of its anti-democratic nature and history of voting down federal policies and laws which a majority of elected representatives in the United States House of Representatives have approved.
State governments in the United States of America should be abolished so that only the federal government and county governments remain.
I believe that the existence of state governments in the United States of America is an obstacle that has been deliberately established in order to prevent the federal government and county governments in the United States of America from operating effectively in the best interests of United States citizens.
For example, it would be preferable if there was only one property titles system covering the entire country, administered by the federal government, instead of a separate property titles system for each state in the United States of America. This is only one of a multitude of examples that could be cited.
It is also much easier for citizens to oppose and change the policies and laws of the federal government that they don’t like, than it is for citizens to oppose and change the policies and laws of the federal government and fifty state governments that they don’t like.
A new constitution should be written and ratified which authorizes that the name of the United States of America be changed to America.
States should be retained as geographic entities in order to minimize the disruption resulting from the abolishment of state governments and to facilitate federal governmental administration. The federal government should use buildings previously used by state governments in order to administer federal policies and laws throughout America.
All American citizens should be issued with a federal identity card which shows their photograph, full name, date of birth, address and identification number, but which contains no electronically-stored data, no biometric data and no other data of any type.
A flat rate of income tax of a maximum of 20% on all income should be implemented. All other taxes should be abolished, including all taxes on business profits, all taxes on capital gains and all taxes on the sale of goods and services.
All public schools, community colleges and universities in America should be owned and controlled by the federal government and should be funded by income tax. The parents of the students of public schools should not pay for the students’ use of public schools. The students of community colleges and the students of universities should not pay for their use of community colleges and universities, unless the students of community colleges or the students of universities are repeating units of study at community colleges or universities due to failure in those units of study or pursuing postgraduate qualifications at universities, in which case they should pay half of the cost of their use of community colleges or universities in relation to those units of study at community colleges or universities that they are repeating or those postgraduate qualifications at universities that they are pursuing.
All public hospitals in America should be owned and controlled by the federal government and should be funded by income tax. The patients of public hospitals should not pay for their use of public hospitals.
All property taxes charged by county governments should be dramatically reduced to fair and reasonable levels.
Following is a map which shows the results of the 2020 United States presidential election by county. Counties in which the majority of United States citizens voted for the Republican Party are shown in red. Counties in which the majority of United States citizens voted for the Democratic Party are shown in blue.
