Power to the People

A minority of voters control the House, primarily because of gerrymandering. The Democrats have to win by about a 9% margin to regain control.  The Republicans can lose by 8% and maintain power.

A minority of voters control the Senate because 250 years ago, when the constitution was written, the population differences between states were negligible. It seemed like a good idea at the time.

A minority of voters elected the president due to a fluke in the electoral college. The last two Republican administrations have taken power despite losing the popular vote.

The Supreme Court has been stacked with partisan ideologues from the minority party due to the reasons above.

I think it’s time to stop pretending the constitution is sacred. Throw it away, and devise a new system that actually represents the will of the people.
