  •  Flawed Democracy (3+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    When democrats can get 1.5 million more votes in congress elections and still have some 30 seats less  than the republicans, and a state like Wyoming with a population of 570,000 sends the same number of senators as California with a population of thirty million, then yes, your democracy is severely flawed.

    A system that might have been appropriate 200 odd years ago, when California was just a wasteland needs some serious upgrading to face the changes. Unfortunately, it's the politicians that would need to take action, and they and their 1% supporters would be the losers, so don't expect any action on this front.
