  •  So, it's unfair for majorities to win in the USA (5+ / 0-)

    So, "it's unfair for a few large cities along both coasts to be able to dictate elections and resultant policy to the rest of the entire geography of the nation"? Your point seems to be that votes of a disproportionately inferior number of voters from sparcely poplulated areas should count more than the votes of people who live in large cities. That is indeed the strategy and talking points of the Rethugs, because that is how they intend to cheat democracy.

      CA has more people then all the states west of the Mississippi except Texas yet they only have the same number of senators.  (heck they have small cities in CA bigger then Wyoming. So those low population states now want to elevate themselves in thier efforts to impose thier religious beliefs, thier belief that the gun is the answer, thier racism, thier unrelenting rejection of any inconvenient science, thier form of morality which seems based on power struggles more then decency, thier lack of understanding of anything more complex then racing ... now want to impose thier beliefs on all the rest of the country through BS.

      But as I have been told repeatedly if they do this, that it is legal. So we could end up with presidents who lose by millions of votes packing a supreme court to give them new laws to force the rest of us to continue supporting thier failing states while stripping many of us of rights... If this happens we truly have lost our democracy to the jingoist flag waving faux patriots, the "real" americans like the rest of us are just some pretend humans.  Geesh the AHs don't even need a SCOTUS to give the presidency to a loser who goes onto to destroy us in the name of making the rich richer.  

      It is legal and so what the hell can we do with a congress owned by republicans or regressives determined to diminish our country to third world status or maybe a country of warlords. You will have a lot of people who in thier apathy will accept that judgnment unless we can come up with an answer. We need answers to counter this or we will end up like Michigan as a country with the pigs aided and abetted by the self-righteous claimants of a morality that only exists in thier minds (the little they actually use for anything but taking more then they need).
