  •  Another good thing about ND... (0+ / 0-)

    it's a relatively inexpensive market for tv ads.  :)

    •  Plus, it's important. (0+ / 0-)

      North Dakota gets two Senators. So does California.

      It's not fair, but it is what it is. And it might not take a lot of money to win the seat.

      Listen, strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government.

        going on in ND that most people don't hear about, so yeah, having every state have two senators regardless of population was genius on the part of the founders of this country.

        For example, most people don't know that during the cold war, if North Dakota had seceded from the union, it would have been the world's third largest nuclear power.  The state was riddled with missile silos.  (I don't know how many are still active.)  It was surrealistic when I was living there to know that if a nuclear war broke out, I didn't have to worry about it for very long before having my atoms vaporized, floating at 25000 ft in the air.

        Add to that Native American issues, farming issues, etc.... You get the idea.  Definitely more than a state with just a lot of wind.
