Our Unconstitutional US Congress
This blog is about building a new Congress, just like the US Constitution dictates.
Today's post is on the words in our Constitution that define We the People. The founders were clear as to how Congress was to be formed. Each state was to have two senators and, in the House of Representatives, the people were to be represented by population - thus the census is taken every ten years.
Here are the twelve words that were ratified in the 18th century and have never been changed. They are still there today, in Article 1, Section 2, and Clause 3 of the US Constitution:
"The Number of Representatives shall not exceed
one for every thirty Thousand".
Those words are constitutional, and a Congress that ignores its founding document is no longer representative of the people. The citizens of the United States have an unconstitutional Congress.
