3 1/2 Californians: Some Are More Equal Than Others

We are the United States of America. We are not simply America.

Power is balanced between the state and federal governments by design.

The electoral college grants each state a minimum of three seats (one for each senator, plus at least one for your reps).

As much as I like our neighbors in California, I do not want to live under a tyranny of the majority of the most populated states.

Complain all you want, but it would take a lot to try to get rid of a system which ultimately preserves what many people want — the sort of local control you do not find in most other nations.
