In 2020, the population of the United States of America was approximately 331 million. Representing those 331 million people are 100 senators; 2 each per our 50 states.  Now consider this: in 2020, the twenty-six (26) states with the smallest populations control the majority of the votes in the Senate while representing a mere eighteen (18) percent of the U.S. population... that’s about 59 million people!

Among many responsibilities, the Senate has the sole power to approve or reject nominations made by the president (cabinet members, federal & Supreme Court justices, etc) and treaties with foreign governments. One person, one vote...I think NOT!
