18. Show how citizens of the 50 states can restructure their state governments from the bottom-up, not the top-down: from the neighborhood block club, to the precinct, township, county, and state levels. Each level of legislative government can make executive and judicial branch appointments.  Representatives at a state level, for example, can be voted out of office completely at all levels by the voters in the precinct, township, or county that the state representative emerged from. Representatives at each level would vote among themselves to send a representative to the next level above it.  State constitutions can be rewritten using a democratic process.

20. Empower the seven largest national political parties, using a system of proportional representation to elect 100 individuals to meet at a Constitutional Convention to rewrite the U.S. Constitution. The delegates will work for three entire months to get a 51 percent or higher approval of any proposed new constitution.  (In other writings, this author has laid out a 23-month timeline for this process.)

This author has been thinking that if a new third party can form, a better title might be the "New Congress Party," since the focus is more on all the changes that Congress must make. 

21. Establish workplace democracy in companies that have seven or more employees.
