The GOP would cry like hell if those 2 states were run by the Democratic Party.

Got a link to those 'whines'?

They got like a million and a half people between the two of them and they get four senators?

WTF?

Every time you people get fucked by your own party, you start up this anti-civil rights fascist bullshit that some people deserve more representation than others. Go fuck yourself.

You should know all about it.

I know why we have two bodies of legislative government: one representing population and one so that all states have equal representation.

If you understood how our government was formed and the history of the Senate you wouldn't be asking an ignorant question. I guess you went to public school.

Throw in Wyoming Idaho and Utah as well.
Meh not Utah they have a decent population size. Wyoming, Idaho, and the Dakotas are not even the population size of a small metro area.

Dolt, it is more like 1.7 million people and if you ever bother to read the constitution, senators are appointed PER STATE, not per population.

I just can't wait to see you complain if DC gets ratified into statehood (the very OPPOSITE of its intended inception) and gets two senators for its mere 689,000. :auiqs.jpg:

Correct - and like Wyoming, their votes carry 2-3 times the weight of a vote in CA, TX, FL and NY thanks to the EC.

So should be easy to sway them to the left? I mean only 1.5mil people. Why is the left having difficulty? Please explain.

And between them and Mont they got all the oil. Be nice. LOL
Actually, oil in the Dakotas took a nosedive. I know a guy who was making bigly bucks in SD as a pipe fitter. He had to move around 4 years ago.
