doda.....sitting here....thinking....I'm with the people!!
Sorry, it should have been obvious, my bad for not being more clear from the outset.
Scroll up, if it wasn't on THIS thread, then I put it somewhere else: I mentioned....
the Constitution, and the Declaration of Independence.....documents that SHOULD BE READ by every Citizen, again and again. (I didn't post them here
We are a Republic, and a representative Democracy.
The Senate is the Republic. Two from Each state, so for the math...that's 100.
The representative Democracy, well....that's supposed to be the Combination of...all 535 of 'em....AND the Senate....for a total of 635 people.
THESE are supposed to represent over 300,000,000 Americans.
If anyone knows what the term 'gerrymandering' means, raise your hand, and go right to the head of the class.....because that is EXACTLY
anti-democratic, right to the core!
Politics.....it was little different in ancient Athens.....
Used to be, it was the best we had.....BUT, funny economic games seem to have upset the system.....we will need to sort this out, and fast.
