Direct election (democracy) is your worst enemy. The Democrats and the independents that vote Democrat far outnumber the Republicans and their followers. And do you know what makes you look even more ignorant? The Democratic party is a center right party. FAR from what YOU call liberal.
How about we do what logic should tell us we should do and apportion votes in the Senate by population. Remember Bluto that the constitution says that states have no power except that given by the citizens of that state.
But I know, Bluto, that you would support me when I say that gerrymandering political power is the ultimate intrusion of the state into the rights and privileges of the citizens. So if you support the gerrymandering that is absolutely necessary to maintain the power of the Republican Party, you support the ultimate intrusion of the states into the rights of the citizens.
You are allowed to be a hypocrite. You are allowed to call for this government intrusion into the rights of its citizens at the state level then whine about it at the Federal. You are very good at illogically whining.
I believe it because it is correct. If you don't know the function of the senate before the 17th amendment, then go research it.
You belong to a democrat party that believes in allowing felons to vote and allowing younger and younger people to vote. Of course, if they commit a crime, they're "too young for prosecution because their minds are still forming", but if you see an edge to electing more and more democrats, you're all for them voting.
You say no to voter ID, but meanwhile, the 26th amendment states " The right of citizens of the United States, who are eighteen years of age or older, to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of age." How the hell do you verify age without ID? The fact is, you don't give two-shits about the Constitution.
Let's test that and allow anyone to purchase a firearm without ID and background check because they're good people and there's no need to verify any buyer! No? You don't want that? Why not?
Don't talk to me about being hypocritical. You are right in the middle of it.
Speaking of gubmint intrusion: demanding vaccinations of some, but letting postal workers out of the requirements because you're afraid of losing union support. Meanwhile, you're only to happy about Biden kicking out those in the military about to retire and rejecting vaccinations, because you know it brings down the pension numbers for military retirees, but allows you to reward those military members who knuckle under and agree to your demands. You democrats are now demanding to know about transactions larger than $600 because you want to "get the rich" as if that's going to stop any of the rich. Your real impetus is putting more surveillance on the citizenry for your taxation demands in the future. You leftists pushed to hire 87,000 new IRS agents to harass the citizenry while working overtime to defund the police. You whine about guns used in violence, and completely ignore violence in the inner-shitties, while demanding cashless bail and more prosecutors that allow violent offenders to go free. You weaponize the DOJ/FBI to go after political enemies just like you did decades ago using the IRS to attack political enemies with conservative leanings. Lois Lerner even refused to testify about it after she made her opening statement to congress...bottom line, you democrats are guilty as fuck of abusing the citizenry based on their political leanings.
You know what, Drlee... you are a disgusting leftist individual and an apologist for democrats, plain and simple.
The democrat party today is to the left of Lenin today; they're in favor of collectivism and against the individual to the core. I don't expect you to realize that; you're too stupid and have conveniently forgotten too much of the past.
Stop whining about gerrymandering. You leftist DEMOCRATS are front and center in practicing gerrymandering every chance you get. We're not in iron-fisted communism just yet, but you're working overtime to instantiate it.
Democrat party center-right today my ass:
