those telephone poles are on somebodys land. and if its under a public road, that means its essentially govt property and they gave them the right to run it there. note that i dont agree with that - most cable/fiber/buried copper ive seen has run at or near the edge of a private property line, covered by a public utility easement that most property owners are forced to comply with.

In other words, "fair representation" means non-whites lording it over white people.

So, you believe it's right that 51% of the people can have 100% of the representation.

If the other 49% cant be bothered to go in and vote, yes absolutely.

There are several commonly cited causes for the lack of minority participation in the voting process and having representation in elected office, most of which lead to a lack of representation in the actually vote itself.
