Let us abandon Congress, which means let us abandon the U.S. Constitution that establishes Congress. When a business project is losing money, any rational owner either fixes it up, sells it, or abandons it.
I know of no evidence that Congress or the Constitution can be fixed up. The opposite evidence, a continuously malfunctioning organization, is reported daily in every Act of Congress. To fix up Congress properly for 300 million diverse Americans would require an impossibility: a political consensus concerning the acceptable law of the land. This law would be a minimalist affair that is not even remotely held as a fervent desire in the hearts and minds of most Americans. I conclude that Congress and the Constitution are broken and can’t be fixed. We should abandon them.
