We should amend the constitution to organize states not around arbitrary territorial boundaries but around metropolitan areas.

Including the rural areas that supply those metropolitan areas.

1. Metropolitan areas are a much better organizing principle. It would ensure that there is a balance between rural and city in every state instead of having rural or city focused states.

2. There would be more states. The greater diversity of states would allow for more experimentation in city / rural integration. A diverse approach to this would generate better solutions than a centralized top down approach.

3. This would emulate the system in medieval times in Europe that gave westerners such an advantage over the rest of the world. It would make it even easier for people to vote with their feet about the type of government that they want.
