Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The US system was a pretty radical departure from previous systems. It's got plenty of flaws, one of which is that it is almost impossible to dislodge it from the 18th Century.

There are plenty of other systems to choose from. But at least ours is written down, that is a pretty good first step.
