Back to Jim Bohannon show at one eight six six five zero JIMBO one eight six six five zero five four six two six was also myth wrong. Former governor of New York and democratic presidential nominee in nineteen twenty eight is the only cure for the ills of democracy, more democracy, or does that in fact, sometimes encumber us we were talking with of course, with professor, Ian, Shapiro, the co author responsible parties and with caller K in Saint Cloud. Minnesota K anything you wanted to add in the way of a question or comment. A couple of things one is that our forefathers warned us against parties. There was a good reason for that. And we have three separate entities in our government. And the Senate became a group that we elected on their own instead of. Reflective of the representatives of each state now that saves them. Powers one one. The judges lawmakers and that really gives us a huge problem. Those are issues that need to be addressed. And we thank you for that. It is interesting. I've always felt professor Shapiro. And I'll throw out my two cents worth it. In fact. Yes, there were warnings against against factions and for all of the genius shown by our founding fathers didn't always get things. Right. Certainly the articles of confederation were a joke and sweeping slavery. Under the rug may have enabled the constitution to be formed. But it certainly didn't solve the problem and in terms of of of parties being a problem, that's almost a working definition of a free society. If you in fact, have a free expression of opinions than the people will have different opinions, and like minded people will automatically band together to pursue their particular viewpoints. Parties are in fact, essential to a free society and. Parties in in fact, our working definition of a free society in my view, professor. Well, you I think you're right. K is correct. That the that when when Madison. Hamilton were writing the federal newspapers at when they were involved in designing the constitution. They were they were very strongly against political parties, which they thought would be divisive by. But this is before they became involved in operating the system, and they soon changed their minds, Madison and Jefferson optimal created the first political party as a as a way of fighting Hamilton's plans to create a national Bank at his national platform. So they, you know, did twenty years of the of the of the constitution that all change their mind and come to to see the importance of parties. So I think while she's right? You know, it's from from the bitter experience of system where you don't have career and parties, they change their mind on her other point, I think she's right as well. But the the separation of powers also we can parties because you can have the situation right now, we have divided party control of congress. Again, it makes it much harder for voters to hold politicians accountable. Because if if things go badly in the next couple of years, you know, Trump will blame the House Democrats, the Democrats will play Trump, and the voters will be unable to pin the blame on anybody in a in a credible fashion. And so it would be much better. If we could make our system function more like a parliamentary system, for example. Until eighteen twenty four the congressional parties pick the two candidates for president from their party that it was the first populist attack on that by Andrew Jackson when he lost out in eighteen twenty four to John Quincy Adams that produced the Caucasus the and then later on we got primaries, but that's much. But you know, if you want your party is to be operating as a team if they can of parties would pick the candidates at least if the turnout in primaries for slow Donald Trump was picked this a Republican candidate by less than five percent of the US electric. The Republicans on the hill did not want to have us their candidate. But they couldn't stop him giving the primary roles, but anything we can do to get more coordination across the branches would produce much more coherent government, and then more accountability to vote on. Now. I wanna talk a bit about the parliamentary system here. But, but I one of the thing that was brought up by k was the the notion of direct election of senators, and of course, much of what we're talking about. Here came about in reforms that occurred little over a century ago. We had the movement toward more primary elections instead of caucuses conventions. You had the move the initiative and referendum the direct voter participation at the same time. Of course, you had the direct election of US senators, and I've heard other suggests we go back to the previous method, which state legislatures actually selected senators a lot of people don't realize it when ABRAHAM LINCOLN. Took part in the Lincoln Douglas debates in eighteen fifty eight they travelled across Illinois not trying to persuade voters but to persuade members of the state legislature. Who were the ones who have fact picked the Senator. So is that another thing that we should consider? Well, they I disagree with K. I think that's a aside. The point the the main problem in the Senate is that it's so unrepresentative of the population so much better reforms would be you know, they were attempts to put a measure on the California ballot split, California into three states or admitting DC and Puerto Rico to to statehood, basically, when you have, you know, stayed the size of California and the state the size of Delaware, each sending two Senate is to congress, or, you know, Oregon, or, you know, tiny little states that don't even have. Hawaii has one congressmen and two senators. You get this massive distortion representativeness in the Senate. So addressing some of those issues would would make a much better. Change to the Senate, then although the only that's the only unamendable part of the constitution. Of course. No state shall be denied. It's equal suffrage in the Senate without its permission. That's very close paraphrase of what's the constitution. Which is another way of saying that ain't gonna happen. You could do anything you could you could amend the constitution to say only left-handed people could vote stupid, obviously. But theoretically possible, you could not amend the constitution to say that will have ten senators from California nine from Texas, and so on and so forth because the little state, but also say no way, and that in fact that that was the deal that that was in the constitution. And that's the only unamendable portion of the constitution. Right. But by the doesn't limit the number of states that you can have. That's nothing nothing in the constitution to stop California spreading into small. Or texas. You know, Puerto Rico in DC statehood, anything that were moving the direction of having a Senate that looks more like America. This is what we need out our institutions to more or less, look like a population. And we we have this huge bias in the Senate. That's. You know, I just gone back to original question. I I don't think it makes much difference to the things that are dysfunctional on Capitol Hill. If you went back to having state legislatures picked, the senators, we'll come back. We'll get some more calls. We'll also take a look at that that parliamentary system that of course, if used in much of the world one eight six six five O, JIMBO professor, Ian, Shapiro of Yale University, the book responsible parties back in a moment..
