This is the main issue I think that everyone has on all sides. Non Participation.Mr. Bean wrote:My last four votes have been against increasing the number of Senators and I will continue to vote against any future members for the foreseeable future since Senate talk is normally limited to at best a dozen participates with the remaining Senator's coming in only for votes.
The 'No bigger' crowd feels there is not enough participation from the people there so they don't want more members who won't participate.
The 'Downsize' crowd feels there is not enough participation, so chop those who don't.
The 'No size limit' crowd feels there is not enough participation, so get some new blood in there and maybe that will change.
From what I have been reading, that seems to be a fairly accurate version of how things are shaping up.
I guess, for the purpose of discussion, how do you rectify that problem?
