"Absolute power, corrupts...well, you know.
There are other ways they can help; outside of office.
A good "one" will make little difference in a broken "system."
Representation should NOT be a career.
Too much power in too few…"
According to Article I Section 2 Clause 3 each state is entitled to 1 representative in Congress for every 30,000 people in their state. Based on that ratio, the State of Wyoming which currently has only 1 representative should have 18 representatives.
By following the Constitution we would have much smaller Congressional Districts and a lobbyists who control the 435 politicians In Washington D.C. would have a tough time influencing over 10,000 representatives of the people in nearly all of the 3,142 counties.
Reducing the size of the Congressional Districts and increasing the number of representatives does not increase the power of the Congressional Representatives it increases the voice and power of the people they were elected to represent.
