What deviation of Citizen Political Weight is acceptable?

Throughout this section, you state the various percentages of states that have either high or low "Citizen Weight" and that that is unacceptable. I agree with all of these examples. But my question is, how much is acceptable? I ask, because even if we increase the number of representatives...

Created a C# Program

I'm surprised that I never posted this here, as it's related to this discussion... But, maybe I just can't find it. Anyway, this was a continuation of my C program that I mentioned a while ago. But, now it's on my website so others can also use it. http://www.emeraldesia.com/Login.aspx Then, click o...

Re: Visualization as a tactic to a bigger house

Yep.

There could still be a federal congress building which would be used for special events.

Re: With Connecticut, it's a done deal, isn't it?

You would think so. I don't know why it hasn't gone forward yet.

Those in power don't want the change, and we the mere citizens, are too lazy to care.

Re: How depressing

The premise of the site is on the fixed number of house seats. So, I'm pretty sure that's what he's referring to.

I am definitely in support of increasing the number of house seats.

Multi-member districts, sounds intriguing, but I'm not 100% on that.

Re: If Art. the 1st Were Ratified in 1791: All 23 Apportionm

I created a web page that lets you set the number of seats for each census and it will show you what the distribution would be for that apportionment.

It also lets you choose the apportionment method.

Re: Connecticut Ratification found?

There is a petition to sign now. It's at MoveOn.org.... isn't that a liberal website? I consider myself a conservative, but this cause is definitely cross-parties.

Re: Connecticut Ratification found?

Apparently the Supreme Court refused to receive the case. Oh well... They have other plans to take it to the Congressional Archivist, so we'll see.

Salaries of House and their staff members

Going to this site http://www.legistorm.com/salaries/house_bonuses.html I found that the average salary of a congressional staffer is about 80k (that graph shows amount per quarter, so you have to add 4 quarters). The salary of a congressman is $170k. From some other site, I saw that the average num...

Re: Created a C Program

Thanks. One of those spreadsheets shows the population numbers used in apportionment. The site even says they don't always match the census numbers. I find this odd. The case I was looking at, it was giving Massachusetts 700,745 population, even though the official census for that year is 472,040. I...

Ok! Well, I also created this program as a way of improving my coding skills. Also, when you start the program, you can choose which population data set to use. I have created several so far. 2000 census, 2010 census, 2010 estimate (which was based on 2000 census, you'd be surprised how different it...

Created a C Program

I've created a C program which automatically apportions the states based on entered criteria. One thing I remember from reading a case about apportionment was a question of how close to one man, one vote would apportionment have to be to meet the requirements of the constitution. This program allows...
