I doubt this thread will get much play because it challenges the USMB membership to think beyond their usual lemming limits of following whatever partisan hack's blog they read every single fucking hour, but here goes; The HoR has had the same number of members since 1910. I know some of you may want me to post a link to evidence supporting my contention that the US population has grown since 1910, but let's just use our imaginations for a moment. This population change means each US representative, Dem OR Repub, has an average 770,000 constituants. Realistically, there is no fucking way these guys are representing this many people: No other representative body on the face of the planet has such an absurd ratio. If you really cared about the validity or representative government, then you'd stop the political hackary, and demand that congress vote to triple the size (at minimum) the number of representatives in the HoR. Of course, this would open wide the door for MORE that BiPartisan government....hell, we might even be able to form an effective third party: GOD FORBID!!!
