7. Aren't some counties more populated than others? IMO, it's bad enough that relatively arbitrary

lines on a map determine Presidential elections.

As among the Executive, the House, the Senate and the Judiciary, the House of Representatives is the one component of government that is supposed to represent human beings. What is the advantage to human beings of changing that?

I don't believe that we can change the Constitution these without endangering the nation. Otherwise, I would suggest a constitutional amendment requiring districts to be drawn rationally, and not in crazy shapes to protect any politician or political party.

Inasmuch as I would rather leave the Constitution as it is, I can only hope that the courts start to declare crazily-drawn districts unconstitutional.
