Alito and "One-Person, One Vote"

Liberals are shocked that Nathan Newman questioned the "one person, one vote" principle.

As a big fan of the existence of the U.S. Senate, I do not find that shocking at all.

Personally, I feel that "one person, one vote" should be the standard for the lower houses of state legislatures (or for unicameral legislatures), but the Senates should be apportioned on the basis of county.

There is also the issue of the fact that for smaller states, representation vareis widely in the House, because states with sizes ranging from 500,000 to 900,000 all have one Congressman.

The most obvious solution in my opinion is to increase the size of Congress.

More on that later.

For now, that is all.
