Kar98 to hit 5,000 posts. Did I hold the expectation for you to STFU? I'm sure there are members who don't/didn't know the population of the country.

[size=1]forgive me for plagiarizing myself...[/size=1] The foundation of this nation was people united in their desire for freedom. Today there are far too many people who are united in their desire for dependancy. For the most part, individualists were the vast majority around the time of the Founding Fathers. But as the population grew and became concentrated in cities, the dependancy-mindset overtook the individualists. It's been magnified greatly in intensity recently as the population has grown exponentially. Big city living encourages collectivist thinking and as urban areas grow disproportionately, so does the collectivist mentality in America. What's really telling about life back then is that the biggest cities in colonial America were, by today's standards, actually fairly small towns. Philadelphia had less than 30,000 people around the time of the Declaration of Independance. New York had just over 30,000 people at that time - and that was the BIGGEST city then. Today there are over 8,000,000 people in NY city - more than double the TOTAL population of all 13 colonies at the time of the Revolution. 8 million people forced to live so heavily dependant on each other for ALL of their needs - no wonder most big megatropolis cities (Gore's "blue" zones) are so packed with collectivists! If there were 300 million people in America at the time of FFs, we would have NEVER had the self-reliant mindset to successfully break away from England. And with that massive growth in population comes the massive smothering of voices of individual in Gov't: 1790: Total population: 3,893,874 people. 1791: 105 Representatives. Average Congressional district size = ~ 37,000 people. 2000: Total population: ~ 281 million people. 2001: 435 Representatives. Average Congressional district size = ~ 647,000 people. No wonder the Gov't is so out of touch with the people - there's no WAY a single person can effectively represent the voices of [b]650,000[/b] people!!! [b]There are just too many damn people!!![/b] [soapbox]
