The significance of small states is the subject of a lengthy article in The New York Times. The focus is on their growing importance in the U.S. Senate. Throughout the article you can feel the message of unfairness to urban America. When a publication such as this New York newspaper gives this much attention to a subject it normally means just the beginning of a fight against rural states. As pointed out small state Senators are influencing the outcomes of filibusters, forming legislation and sharing the federal dollar. We don’t want to lose that influence.
We have written here from a rural perspective about preserving the Electoral College which is under attack and how the US Secretary of Agriculture has not fought for rural development for states like West Virginia. All of us Republicans, Democrats and Independents here and elsewhere in rural America must work together to prevent any movement that attacks the Constitution to do us harm.
