It isn't often that The Reapportionment Act of 1929 and Public Law 62-5 are bought into our modern political conversations but it made for a very interesting read. I hadn't heard of 62-5 before but The Reapportionment Act of 1929 has been an interest of mine.
Go read the article and leave him a few comments here as feedback. I don't agree often with his opinions but I have so far been impressed with a few of his fair comments he has put in his entries. I am likely to regret saying that but it is true. For example: He said it was fair Democrats gave priority to their club members to get in a packed event at a recent Democratic Club meeting on healthcare instead of complaining, like some other people did.
My first question for Eric: Are you, as a conservative, really pushing to dramatically expand the numbers of politicians?
