They include perfectly good arguments about how interests of people in geographically diverse areas are protected by the current system, arguments that your side simply don't see as more important. Again, I get that, but you are the people agitating for change. Were the roles reversed, the burden would be on the other foot. It's not.
I see it as this idea that some people don't agree with how the country should be organized. That their way is obviously better and any right thinking person would just know this to be true. It's like they joined the libertarian party.
