Umm. Colin, it IS 2 senators per state. Every state has 2 senators. 

It's the House of Representative that's apportioned by population.

It's this attitude that prevents anything from ever happening in DC!

Splitting California would pretty much guarantee 4 more Dem senators, wouldn't it?

Most likely.  Since the vast majority of Californians are pretty much Anti-American these days.

Looks pretty mixed parties to me.

As far as Anti American...well that could easily apply to Those who hate the majority of their fellow citizens.

I understood it's by population in the State, is the two the minimum?

Heinleinian democracy, solves the problem of a callous and exploitative elite representing an indifferent horde of freeloaders and a few patriots, slowly drowning, unable to accomplish anything to save the nation. 

 

Obviously this will only occur the other side of ACW part 2.0, but that's inevitable anyways.  S/F....Ken M

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s office doesn’t answer phone calls

Of course not. She is too busy to deal with the proles.

The senate is like the house of lords. 
2 per state. Elected every 6 years. 

The house is like the house of commons.
Apportioned by percentage of population, elected every 2 years. 

Both propose, draft and vote on legislation. Spending Bills originate out of the House. Disparate versions of bills are resolved by varying votes and procedures between both houses. Then the bills go off to the president for signature or veto. They can over-ride a veto with a 2/3rds majority required.

Additionally, the Senate alone approves presidential appointments such as cabinet members, heads of agencies, and federal judges.

The HoR is the legislative body that is responsible for impeachment, the Senate then deliberates on the charges brought about by impeachment and decides to remove or not.

 

There you go, Colin, you now have a better understanding of the US Congress than does the namesake of this topic thread.

This just in, and may have AOC pulling her hair out and shoving spikes in her eyes, but the DNC has cancelled the long awaited presidential candidate debate on Climate Change.  So while planet earth has only 10, or 11, or maybe as many as 12 years to be put right, and the Democratic candidates to the he/she/they/them all say that Climate Change has their greatest attention, they'll not be talking about it, at all.

Just to rekindle the definition of fascism etc.;

 

https://thewriterinb...of-information/

 

Some other quotes from the founder of Fascism:

“For this I have been and am a socialist. The accusation of inconsistency has no foundation. My conduct has always been straight in the sense of looking at the substance of things and not to the form. I adapted socialisticamente to reality.”

 

“It was inevitable that I should become a Socialist ultra, a Blanquist, indeed a communist. I carried about a medallion with Marx’s head on it in my pocket. I think I regarded it as a sort of talisman… [Marx] had a profound critical intelligence and was in some sense even a prophet.”

 

 

As the saying goes, read the whole thing.

As I've been saying for years;

 

"Sarah Hoyt, who was born and raised in Portugal, says that Fascism is in fact, right-wing, BUT ONLY BY EUROPEAN STANDARDS. Since Communism is highly regarded in much of Europe, it is considered centrist, so Fascism must be to the right of it, as it certainly can’t be to the left of it. It is not right-wing by U.S. standards, though it is politically useful to say it is."
