I find it odd that you're up here in Alaska and proposing something that would effectively make AK representatives a complete non-issue in DC.

Its not a two party system, only the masses keep voting for the two parties.
What needs to be done is people need to get their heads out of their rears and use the brain god gave them.
Everyone needs to vote for an alternative party. EVERYONE.
Then the truth shall be revealed.
A democracy is always temporary in nature;
it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government.
A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover
that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury.
From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates
who promise the most benefits from the public treasury,
with the result that every democracy will finally collapse
due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship --Alexander Tytler

How about we go back to the ideas of the COTUS?
Abolish the amendment that took Senators away from the states so that the states are represented in Washington. Then, go back to awarding Representatives to every so many 100,000 people. Make the House a body that meets electronically so that House Reps much stay in their Districts except for a few, very specifically defined days per year when they meet in committee or as a whole body. That way they stay accountable and available to their constituents. And with that many House Reps, it gets harder to buy off the whole body.
