<<But that argument was just as true in 1776 as it is today.

No. It was not just as true. The under-representation California voters experience today is far worse than the largest state under-representation in 1776.>>

Oh, boo hoo! You poor babies!

Examples of the oppression California experiences are the privilege to set environmental and other standards that conflict with Federal law. California uses it's political and market power to impose numerous standards that wind up being adopted much more widely.

".....known to be carcinogenic by the state of California" ring any bells?

Indeed, California is an imperialist power within the United States, grabbing up water and other resources that properly belong to the states from which they are taken.

The line of argument that claims California is put upon is just baloney.

And in addition everything else, California has supplied Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan as native sons who were elected President ---- a total of four times. Sorry about Jerry Brown.
