I'm not a fan of the Senate because it is ultimately undemocratic, and I am a firm believer in democracy. The way senate seats are distributed and they way the senate sets its own rules undermines the will of the majority and delays good legislation way more often than it prevents bad legislation. If we keep the Senate, we should keep it the way the UK keeps the House of Lords, as a cute political curiosity with almost no power. I would make the Senate an unpaid position, and all senators get to do is confirm executive branch appointments, and then by a simple majority.

I'd also increase the number of Representatives in the House, get rid of all US Territories by making them states or parts of states, and let everyone over 18 vote, but like I said, I think democracy is a good thing.
