A brief illustration of the imbalance of power in the US Senate in the form of a list of states, their populations, and the number of counties in California that have a larger population.

@typingmonkey I’m not really sure what purpose the Senate serves in our current political culture, so I might be tempted into full abolition for the senate :). As long as we get proportional representation in the house!

@typingmonkey that said, I am sympathetic to the notion that minority constituencies such as rural America deserve effective and strong representation, but not to the current extent of the senate.

@hypomodern Yep, the Senate is supposed to be a counterbalance. The key part there is “balance”, which is not at all what’s happening now.
