Every fucking time I see this argument made it says the same thing to me:
“We big Blue states should be in total dominating control of America because of our size and you rural Red states should be crushed under our boot heel.”
If the problem is New York and California aren’t getting enough representation for their population, let’s depopulate them.
Cut off their urban areas from access to food, water, electricity, etc., until their population has been reduced in the Soviet style to a level that matches their level of representation.
