Complaining about the disproportionate nature of the Senate is just downright silly and ignoring its purpose in the first place.
Oh fuck off. That's like saying "complaining about the electoral college of representatives is downright silly and ignoring its purpose in the first place". There used to be something called State's Rights. It was a big deal. Then there was something called the Civil War. State's Rights hasn't been such a big deal since. And it shouldn't be; 80% of the people in this country couldn't give a fuck about the state in which they were born/live, unlike 200 years ago, when they really did represent more quasi-tribal regions.
The electoral college and "tribal"-based Senate are antiquated and now bad ideas. Unlike the electoral college, which is a uniquely fucked-up American thing, the non-democratic disproportionate representations that exist similar to the Senate does exist in other countries, but it's usually a sign that shit ain't working well (see Lebanon's power sharing president/prime minister/speaker of national assembly based on religion, another type of tribe).
Anyways, complaining about the disproportionate nature of the Senate is correct, and there SHOULD be changes made to it.
