No, this is NOT the Babylon Bee. This is actually being discussed.
The reality is the Senate isn’t just undemocratic by definition, it’s undemocratic in a way that virtually guarantees that as white people drift rightward nationwide, so will the Senate. We will need to delegitimize the Senate and SCOTUS if progressivism is to stand a chance.
The Senate must change. The majority of citizens voted for Democrats for Senate, but the GOP retains a majority of seats b/c the Senate is undemocratic. That might’ve been fine 230 years ago w/a population of less than 4 million people in 13 states, but today it’s unacceptable.
The population of California is: 39,540,000.
Each gets 2 senators which means Wyoming has 68 TIMES as much representation in the US Senate as California. 68!
This has NOTHING to do with “democracy” or the “will of the people.”
fter losing another three Senate seats last night, increasing Republicans’ majority to at least 54 seats, many on the left are calling for abolishing the Senate altogether.
The movement received its first boost after Vox co-founder, Ezra Klein, said it would be a “crisis” if Democrats win the “House popular vote” but not the House itself.
Of course, these people are neglecting to mention that the most populous state, California, had a Democrat vs. Democrat Senate race, so the vote totals will inevitably skew Democrat. And that the purpose of the Senate is not “democracy,” but rather equally representing states in Congress.
