There are problem either way. It's a matter of finding the best solution, although I agree the one we have is not good.

Though I would have accepted that aguement in the past, think of these "city states" like this.
How is it our right, or or the governments rights to tell a voter where to live to find work? I'm sorry Mr or Mrs Voter you can't live in the Major Metropolitan area to find work. We need your vote in a rural communitiy.
Besides there are enough of you voter types living there allready. Good luck with the finding work thing, and remember to vote for me next election.
That is my counter argument, people move to metropolis's for work. If I can't get work in the rural south, where do I move to? The logical answer is a larger city where more work is available.
