Definitely cult like. I can't even discuss the pros and cons of it without being labeled a heretic.

She's already a congressperson, right? Is senator better because there are fewer of them?

I'll predict NY to follow CA in losing population.

Thanks for asking. I'm a little surprised but...
Quote:
A bicameral legislature has legislators in two separate assemblies, chambers, or houses...

Often, the members of the two chambers are elected or selected by different methods, which vary from country to country. This can often lead to the two chambers having very different compositions of members.

Enactment of primary legislation often requires a concurrent majority—the approval of a majority of members in each of the chambers of the legislature. When this is the case, the legislature may be called an example of perfect bicameralism. However, in many parliamentary and semi-presidential systems, the house to which the executive is responsible can overrule the other house and may be regarded as an example of imperfect bicameralism. Some legislatures lie in between these two positions, with one house only able to overrule the other under certain circumstances.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bicameralism

Originally, Senators were elected out of the States' senates. As AOC knows, Senator is one step closer to Commander in Chief.

Quote:
The drafters of the Constitution created a bicameral Congress primarily as a compromise between those who felt that each state, since it was sovereign, should be equally represented, and those who felt the legislature must directly represent the people, as the House of Commons did in Great Britain. This idea of having one chamber represent people equally, while the other gives equal representation to states regardless of population, was known as the Connecticut Compromise. There was also a desire to have two Houses that could act as an internal check on each other. One was intended to be a "People's House" directly elected by the people, and with short terms obliging the representatives to remain close to their constituents. The other was intended to represent the states to such extent as they retained their sovereignty except for the powers expressly delegated to the national government. The Senate was thus not designed to serve the people of the United States equally. The Constitution provides that the approval of both chambers is necessary for the passage of legislation.[7]

The disparity between the most and least populous states has grown since the Connecticut Compromise, which granted each state two members of the Senate and at least one member of the House of Representatives, for a total minimum of three presidential electors, regardless of population. In 1787, Virginia had roughly ten times the population of Rhode Island, whereas today California has roughly 70 times the population of Wyoming, based on the 1790 and 2000 censuses. This means some citizens are effectively two orders of magnitude better represented in the Senate than those in other states. Seats in the House of Representatives are approximately proportionate to the population of each state, reducing the disparity of representation. Before the adoption of the Seventeenth Amendment in 1913, senators were elected by the individual state legislatures.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Senate


The more one knows....

Also, primarying is the tactic that got her into the House in the first place. Schumer, and Ariana Huffington, were the ones that freaked out over porn on Internet in the 1990s.

Plus which:
Yoko Ono: I broke up the Beatles
Meghan Markel: Hold my beer!

Surprised by my ignorance? I'll take that as a compliment. Law and politics are boring subjects to me because they are mostly divorced from reason and closely associated with marketing; the tool used to get people to make uninformed decisions.

Law should be accessible to the common person, but it's made intentionally inaccessible. Politics should be administered by citizens, with people returning a blank look of confusion of the word 'politician'.

Look at it this way. The Constitution of the Union of the United States* is a logic bomb that's compacted like an oak's acorn, terse enough to allow flexibility yet interlocking [or self-interaccomodative] to provide strength.

This was paid for by Bill Gates, Mr. Hydrogen-powered Superyacht Guy.
