85% of the counties of the U.S. voted Republican.
In case you’ve not noticed, though the numbers of people are relatively close, it’s the inner cities that control the outcome of the elections! The other 15% of the landmass (where the masses of people live), dictate to the rest of America.
This was NOT how our government was to operate! The Senate and House were to represent the population in different ways, so as to avoid this unfairness!
Though the Constitution was changed about 90 years ago and the resulting system now leaves one group of people (15% of the landmass) controls the other group (85%); it was not meant to be that way!
Therefore, what we have now, …. is what we had then!
That event, stimulated by the tea in Boston Harbor and led to the revolution, ….. the shot heard round the world has begun another, tea party! Many other nations have followed in our footsteps but none are as free as we were nor are as powerful, but ….
What we have, is NOT democratic ! ! ! It’s dictatorship of the majority by the minority. Reagan said that (paraphrased):
‘America is the last stronghold of Freedom; when we fall, there’ll be nowhere to run to!’
