All those states have rights. Better for them, every state has exactly the same clout in the Senate - to insure that large states don't dominate the legislative process with the tyranny of the majority voting others 'off the island'.

This is true.

However, it is also true that the framers did not intend that the people would be able to dominate the legislative process with the tyranny of the minority.

Minority rule is always untenable, even more so when it is maintained via voter suppression, changing rules to cripple your opponents when they win, egregious gerrymandering, and voter fraud.

When political plate tectonics don’t budge over time, an earthquake results.

This is the current situation.
