  • No, they already have state governments and there would be no point to a "Southern Parliament"

  • They have state governments and they have representatives in Congress. They don't need a parliament.

This actually brings up an interesting point. With the ever increasing population rate and the same system for representation in Congress, our nation is becoming less and less democratic by the year (a seat in the HOR went from representing around 33,000 people at our nations founding to 700,000 in 2012. The founders proposed a maximum ratio of 1 to 50,000, so we have already passed that mark). One way to fix this is to increase the size of Congress, but another (arguably more long term solution) is to add another layer of government to the Local-State-Federal system we already have (maybe District or Region or something) were some (but not all) of the Federal governments power is given to this District level government.

Nope. The last time the South segregated themselves, it was to get away with blatantly treating blacks (and others) like second class citizens.

We need to resort back to a real Republic, not one that is centralized in the hands of DC.

And surprising to no one, briantheliberal turns a topic on political structure and representation into a race issue.

@58539672 as all Liberals do.

@briantheliberal - This is a question on political structure, not race, or ethnicity issues. On the not of race, and ethnicity however, there is no evidence, that I know of, that suggest that a Devolved Southern Parliament would be racist.

Excuse the spelling mistake, the word should be 'note', instead of 'not'.
