I totally get that "tyranny of the majority" (ie mob rule) can be a problem, but what about tyranny of the minority? When the vast majority of people are represented by a minority of elected officials because of the way the system is set? If we start to see more and more elections with the winner losing the popular vote, but winning the electoral vote - that could be a problem.How does that address how much power we give individuals? Right now some individuals have much more say in governing than others only related to what state they live in... that is the injustice. You are justifying the injustice because right now you like the group that is over represented.What more do you and the article want you have the 17th amendment and for the millionth time the Senate was for state rights not people's rightsHow is equal representation mob rule?What he wants is unfettered mob rule.
Because liberals like you, do not respect limitations on government power. The more power we give you, the less you will pay attention to the limits.
The courts will just become a rubber stamp for whatever "right" the latest fad group makes up, and the long suffering normal Americans will have to just take it, or rise up in rebellion, because they won't have any voice.
There are two processes in play. Your desire to have larger states dominate the smaller and your desire for mob rule.
You are holding more power in the larger states so you want to use a more democratic system as a way to get to "mob rule" faster.
I want neither. I want the states to be equal and I want individual rights to be respected.
We are completely at odds.
