I suspect one thing Ben Franklin might recommend is a return to voting qualifications beyond fogging a mirror at 18 yrs of age.

If the franchise to vote had been limited to those who have a positive stake in our system, most of our societal problems would not exist. Oh, and repeal of the foolish 1910s amendments would help too.

So, you wouldn't let the winos vote on whether there should be "free" wine? Oh, the intolerance!
