Apportionment in the House




Congress has the responsibility to guarantee that all districts in all of the states are equally represented and that ever state must have at least one representative with no district having more than one representative for every thirty-thousand inhabitants.

Congress must repeal the Apportion Act of 1929 and instead of limiting the number of representatives in the House they need to pass a new Apportionment Act in 2022 to limit the size of Congressional Districts to whatever size Congress deem to be necessary and proper in order to secure the rights of the people and the sovereignty of the states.

This movement will be a non-partisan effort to restore the sovereignty of the states and the voice of the people.

If a sufficient number of people support this proposal, American can once again become a land of liberty.

If the Constitution mandated that all of the states be represented based on their population, why was Georgia apportioned 3 representatives for a population of 85,548 and New Hampshire with a population of 141,000 received the same number of Congressional Representatives?

In the 1790 Census Georgia had a population of 85,548 of which 29,264 were slaves. Foe the purpose of apportionment in the House of Representatives only 17.558 or three fifths of them were counted. The total population of Georgia in 1790 for the purpose of apportion in the House was 73,842

The state legislature determined that the state was entitled to three Congressional Districts, with none having more than 30,000 inhabitants.

All of the others states misinterpreted the intent of Article 1 Section 2 Clause 3 and instead of limiting the size of the Congressional Districts they limited the number of representatives to serve in any one district.

The Virginia state legislature chose to create districts with an average of 76,000 people in each district. In other words 27,000 people in Georgia had a voice equal to that of 76,000 Virginians. Ironically, the state with the greatest population was the least represented.

If Virginia and Georgia were equally represented, the state of Virginia would have had three times as many representatives as they were assigned in 1792.

Georgia has 14 Congressional Districts with an average size of 758,000. If the state legislature of Georgia was to reduce the size of their districts to 578,000 to match size of the district in Wyoming, Georgia would gain 4 more Congressional Representatives and gain 4 more electoral votes.

States that reduce the size of their Congressional Districts will receive a greater voice in Congress and more electoral votes.

Passing a new Apportionment Act would transfer the power of the Wall Street Bankers and Corporation back to the states where it belongs.
