If you learn nothing else from these past four years under Trump let it be that you are CLUELESS about how government works and if and when you speak up and pretend you’re all deep and meaningful about the basic fundamentals of our country and government you will only embarrass yourselves.
Take for example this nonsense from Steven Pasquale – full disclosure, we had no idea who he even was but after a quick Duck Duck Go search (eat it, Google) we discovered he’s on some TV show we’ve never heard of, so good times.
Super annoying reminder that although the senate is spilt about half and half, democrats represent nearly 50 million more Americans.
That’s not democracy. It’s not representative democracy. It’s not the will of the people.
An authoritarian minority has rigged the system.

Super annoying reminder that actors should just stick to acting.
Even if they’re in a show most people don’t even know exists.
The Senate doesn’t represent people, it represents states; the House represents people. Basic civics is good, Steve, you colossal moron. pic.twitter.com/7uWMoLwO4Y

This is not complicated.
Senate represents the states.
House represents the people.
You're civicsing ? What an embarrassment

Super annoying reminder that you are clearly culturally illiterate.
I would think a true egalitarian (look it up, dumbass) would be pleased that tiny little Delaware has the same number of Senators as great, big Texas.

Yeah, it is. Read a book, birdbrain. And I don’t mean Harry Potter.

Anything but Harry Potter.
History: The small states would not-would NOT-join the union without a hedge against being bullied ad infinitum by the big, populous states.
The Senate is that hedge. It is a solemn vow that small populations will be able to fight the tyranny of the majority. No Senate, no union

Read this aloud: “Alexa, what is the U.S. Senate?”
— Okay. (@corrcomm) February 14, 2021
1) We have a constitutional republic
2) The senators represent the States (more accurately, the State Legislatures) and their interests qua their relationship with the federal government.
3) We know you know this. You're pounding the table with your lies anyway.

Your side rigged an entire election. Spare me.

Hey now, we didn’t say it.
We included it in this article but we didn’t say it,
A civics and history book would do you a world of good. Ignorance of our governing system is a big reason we have all the problems we do right now.

Try a civics class at a local junior college Steve.. Senators don’t represent the people they represent the states.. 2 each. The people are represented by the Congress.. pic.twitter.com/HnLdFaA4dT

That's why the House seats are apportioned according to population and why places like California can have so many ridiculous Dem reps like Pelosi.

Hollywood is gonna Hollywood. Heh.
A) The Senate represents the states. Each state has equal representation, hence two senators per state.
B) The U.S. is not a democracy, it’s a constitutional republic.

Consider yourself schooled, Steve.
