The people of New York and California don't amount to less, but neither do they amount to more.

Then the people of New York and California deserve as much say as anyone else:mad:

Why should a few heavily and unfairly handicapped red states dictate over the country?

And in the Senate, they have as much say as everyone else. In the House, they have more.

Just having fair and proportional representation in one part of the government doesn't cut it.

You shouldn't have your voting power kneecapped just because some people don't like the part of the country you reside in.

And we've seen what ignoring so many of their votes as national policy gets us.

Based on past behavior, the fake Russians will support him because they'll regard him as divisive. Putin's been doing that for awhile now. Old espionage pro that he is, he knows propaganda's value. He's the kind of guy I wish would have some sort of fatal accident.

One wonders to what conclusion this logic can be taken. What if 90% of the country lived in 24 states and 10% of the country lived in 26 states? Obviously, for representative government, this is a problem. And its an extreme scenario. So, at what point does it become extreme? 30% of the senators representing 70% of the country seems extreme to me.

Such a country would probably do what you clearly hope this one does, break into pieces.
