It is clear that many Americans believe there are regions in the world which require assistance from our government in order to establish the principle that each individual has a right to vote. We regard as “backward” those areas in the world in which people are denied their right to cast a ballot. For some strange reason, those living in the United States of America never are classified as among people denied the right to vote. In our democratic society, one million people in Wyoming have two US senators as do the forty million in California. We explain these numbers as due to protecting the rights of small states.
If that was not bad enough, gerrymander districts within a state to ensure the party which received fewer votes secures more representatives in the House of Representatives. It is all part of the American way of democracy. For some strange reason the Tea Party which never ceases proclaiming what our Founding Fathers wanted apparently believe this was their intention.
