  •  Democracy vs. the US Senate (8+ / 0-)

    Ten percent of the American people live in the twenty states with the smallest populations, That means they have FORTY senate seats, while California which has more population than all of them has TWO. Until the big state urbanites and progressive small state taxpayers get together and stop the pilfering of federal dollars by the tiny "taker" states, democracy will be stymied by this filibuster ruse.

    American decentralization is the wave of the new century.
