"Undermining my electoral viability since 2001."

Proportional Representation

Back in the heady days of Deanism, one of the things I was harping on was how one of the problems we have in governance these days was the ratio of representation. Congress is currently 666,000:1, up from 50,000:1 back in 1800.

Makes for an interesting graph, if I do say so myself.

At some point there will be a realignment of these ratios if representation is to continue to be effective.
