what would you think is a reasonable percentage of representation of the US Citizens in Washington DC. I am only counting the following people here in this percentage.
Members of the House of Representatives
Members of the Senate
President of the United States
Vice President of the United states
This number is a total of 540 people.
if you look at this web site according it it there were 307,006,550 in July of 2009 I have read that there is a net gains of one person by birth and immigration and death records every 11 seconds.
which means from July 0f 2009.
1 year = 525,948.766 minutes
rounding that up by 0 we have 525,949 / 11 = 47,813.545454545454
So we have added approximately 47, 814 new citizens in the last year.
which is a grand total of 307,006,550 = 47,814 = 307,054,364
if you take that and divide it by .00001 which is one one hundred thousandth of a percent you get.
If you divide it by .000001 which is one millionth of a percent you get a number that is just slightly under the total elected into office that directly effect our way of life.
The actual percentage of our representation by percentage of the population of the us is.
0.00017586462311279836 of one percent is what the people of the United States is represented by in the United States.
I’m not sure about you but this does not seem like fair and balanced representation of us.
I believe there needs to be a great change in how we do things in the united states if we really want to get fair representation of what we the People want.
really if you think about it there is no way that our representatives are even able to listen to each of their constituents and know what they really want. and be able to vote accordingly to how the people there represent wish him to do so.
I am not sure how to fix it but I think if you look at how many counties there are in the United states then we might have a base to go by. According to my research which is not very extensive at this point in time. There is about 3143 counties in the United States. Yes, this is still a very small number but it is a starting point.
If you want a larger number you look at all of the Cities, Towns, Villages and other separately governed places that are in the United states you will see that there is some where between 18,000 and 25,375.
I realize that this is a large amount of people in fact it is the size of a large town or even a small city. But it is still a very small percentage of the population of the United States.
I am a firm believer in a small government and by the looks of this you might think I am not. But I do not believe that if we were to some how get this type of political representation that it would be one that is smaller but it may be.
I think that those that seek this type of government should seriously look at doing so with out pay and that they should hod their office with in their own home. Not a public location or if possible they should be allowed a office with in their cities or county offices.
But they should also have a full time job to support their family and personal needs. I feel if you are elected you should not be given a salary or compensation for doing so.
This is my concern and I am wondering what others think as well.
