I R Baboon

Uh, in this post, below, I didn't mean for "proportional representation" to mean European-style proportional representation, complete with multiple seats per district, assignment of seats to parties in proportion to overall vote tallies. I meant something more towards one-person one-vote, an equal distribution of voting power among all individuals in the USA. Sorry for the lack of clarity.

I'm envisioning a House with about a thousand members -- i.e., smaller congressional districts by a factor of two or so -- and a Senate with about ten or fifteen members, two or three from equal-population large regions of the country, elected in staggered terms. The Senator from New England; the Senator from Northern California; etc.
