Mixed Government Proposal

- Austin J. Pomper -


Central Government


Legislative:

Maintain the Bicameral legislature with the House of Representatives and the Senate that comprise the whole Congress


The number of the members of the House shall be increased to between 830 to 1,000 members in total. The current number of 435 was set back in 1929 when the US population was only 121 million people, whereas today our population is over 331 million people, over 2 times as many people. Thus the House should be increased 2 times over, amendments possibly needing to be put in place should the total US population rise so much and thus the house become too large and unwieldy in its current form and operation. The Representatives shall serve a 4-year term, with no limit on the amount of terms they can serve.


The number of Senators will be increased also by one per state, making three Senators per state. How the Senators come to take their seats as well shall be amended; One popularly elected by the citizens of that State, another appointed by the State Legislature to be its ambassador in the Senate, and the last to be appointed by the Governor of that State acting as the ambassador for the whole territory.

The tribunal shall consist of 15 Justices and all of them studied in law. Only four needing to be studied in philosophy. Only three needing to be studied in psychology. Only two needing to be studied in humanism. Only one needing to be studied in theology.


The study of law is always proper for a steward of the law and constitution to be versed in.


The study of philosophy being useful for logic and ethics, to work through situations and come to understanding that normal every-day discourse may not penetrate to nor even approach.


The study of psychology is also of nature very useful to apply in this case because of its ways to analyze the argument whilst at the same time provide reasoning for it that may lie beneath the surface, behind how the cases are structured, worded, operated, and emotionally charged in origin, to analyze that very subtle nature of the human being that is not always readily present.


The study of humanism is necessary and useful, that arguments, interpretations, and points of view can be thus presented that argue for the virtues and morals found naturally within the person, that by divine providence and action they need not always be founded, but thus also can operate well and in harmony with philosophy and theology.

The study of theology is useful both in a practical sense but also in a critical sense, knowing the varied interpretation thereof of manifold religious texts, practices, and customs, and when cases thereupon hinge and are set can be approached and systematically addressed and charged.
