"[W]e need to stop simply blaming politicians for our democratic failures. We must face up to the systemic sources of our political problems, and recognize that institutional problems require institutional solutions.
We need to adopt the National Vote Plan to ensure the president is elected by the popular vote. We have to pass amendments putting term limits on Supreme Court justices and allowing strict regulation of campaign financing. We should embrace voting system reforms like ranked-choice voting. The filibuster must go. And we have to make the Senate more representative, or render it relatively powerless like the House of Lords in Great Britain. Such changes may sound radical, but they are already in place in other developed countries, where they are viewed as business as usual in a real democracy."
