I'd also add that for simplicity's sake it would make sense to simply adopt the current US legislative situation, like we did back in 2004. It might be fun to have people argue about Obamacare.
Maybe parts of it, like non-controversial issues, then we argue on the controversial ones. (AKA A.C.A.)

I fully support a legislative reboot:

This is a really bad idea. For one thing the separating of controversial bills from non controversial ones will take ages, for another it would lead a massive gap in, say, healthcare policy as no one would know what the current status was, for another you can hardly say we are the US in 2015 but that certain bills didn't pass because that diverges the timeline from 2004 and finally it's precisely the controversial laws which we'd want to have on the books as those are the ones that would provoke debate by amending or repealing.

I can see what you mean. My point was that we need a base-line, but not to destroy all the work Atlasia has had put into it.
