Serious question: at what point do we recognize that Republicans have been enacting a slow-motion coup giving them disproportionate representation in Congress and preventing the federal government from functioning as intended?

And then what do we do about it?

I really don't believe we can fix this within the current Constitutional framework. We need a genuinely representative federal government; that means doing away with state-based representation (i.e., the Senate) and the Electoral College for starters.


@jwisser I continue to think that the GOP’s minority rule approach has a nonzero chance of leading to civil war in my lifetime if we can’t find a way to fix it.
