Apportionment

The 14th Amendment to the Constitution
Section 2
"Representatives shall be apportioned among the several States according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each State, excluding Indians not taxed. "

That word has doomed us to an aristocratic society. After this statement in the 14th amendment, our government's power stems from the number of rooms in the Capital Building. We have 435 room, and that is all the representatives we are going to get. Divide them amongst the states based on the number of persons.

I understand why this was done. It was done to reduce administrative costs. But, we have no need for those antiquated paper systems.

As our population increases and transparency forces its way into our society, this will be our downfall. Too much power in too few hands. And this will happen fast.

I love this country. I have taken oaths to protect and defend our Constitution. And Apportionment is the biggest threat to our nation. That word changed us from a democratic-republic to an aristocratic-republic.
