Not All Votes are Equal
The principle that all men are equal means that all votes are equal too, but in the USA they are not.

- Citizens of Washington DC pay taxes but have no votes for senator or representative.
- Citizens of Puerto Rico pay taxes but have can vote only for a representative who is not allowed to vote in congress.
- Citizens of tiny states still get two senators, the same as giant states. This means the votes of people living in large states are watered down.
- The boundaries of congressional districts are drawn in bizarre ways to negate the effect of votes for the opposition party.
