Oh, God.  Now that it's out here, this proposal will win, guaranteed.  (Unless Smid's does, because he did the smart thing and made it the first thing discussed; yay equilibrium!)

I have a proposal.
Bicameral System Proposal:
I suggest we have a 10 region system, with delegates to a House delegated by population of region, with a 20 delegate limit. The second house will be a Senate, with one delegate from each region and no nationally elected Senators. Bills will be passed with the same system as the current USA system. This will get more people into the game and allow more people a chance to participate. There will be no governors. Each region will be self governing. Any duties, if there were any, of the governor will go either to a Senator or a Representative.

Stick it in the Suggestion for Government Type thread that relates to nominations of proposals. This is for the specific discussion of this proposal. Your idea is pretty different so, if you get a delegate to sponsor it and another one to second it in the appropriate thread, your idea would receive its own thread like this one.

OK, I'll do that. Thanks.
