Constitutional representation is the forgotten story of We the People. The US Constitution, in Article 1, Section 2, and Clause 3, as written and never amended, guarantees We the People a right to representation at the ratio of "one for every thirty Thousand." Article the first of the Bill of Rights would have amended the ratio and changed it to "fifty thousand." But it was not ratified. That means one for every thirty thousand remains the supreme law of the land and the constitutional ratio of representation.
