I am really open to any proposal to increase the size of the House, but I guess I would lean towards establishing a rolling number that allocated a seat for approximately every 100,000.

As I understand, the House was fixed at 435 members for budgetary and spatial reasons. Congress didn't want to pay more members and hire more staff, and it simply didn't have the physical capacity to house -- pun intended -- a lot of new members.

I agree. If you occasionally watch C-SPAN, you'll notice that they already list the main cities in a congressman's district. It's simply too difficult to remember where each numbered district is located. See Google Images:

Someone please show me where the UK and the Vatican are mentioned here. It's literally an act to establish a single municipal government for the District of Columbia.

Is this related to the "sovereign citizen" conspiracy theories that the article also mentions?

Yes. In the conspiracy theory part

Understood. So which conspiracy theory do you follow? The one that claims the United States is secretly a business corporation, or the one that claimed that Donald Trump would be sworn in as president of the "original" United States on 2021-03-04?

The business corporation. I used to believe that trump messiah stuff, but after reading the QAnon main page thing, and all the stuff they got wrong, I’m done with it lol. I guess I’ll just wait for Jesus to return :)

Right, sure, but I think the logistics, while obviously worth considering, aren't that big of an obstacle. We just spent the GDP of Chile on a stinking CHIP bill, I think they can find room for it. The sheer number of personnel (and new building or facility) would be challenging but I'm sure we can make it work.

I find myself going back and forth on this idea. As a general rule, I tend to favor greater devolution and focus towards lower-level government, but I am not really sure that, in an already highly top-heavy system, that looking to increase identity in a regional area would have any great effect. Insofar as it would reduce gerrymandering, I tend to agree, but it would seem to do so by reducing flexibility in redistricting generally, if a state lost or gained a seat or saw substantial population changes, trying to adjust around relatively calcified maps would be difficult. I am increasingly of the opinion that state-level devolution is the most realistic goal of shifting the balance of power, in that regard, something more along the lines of the geographical option over the city/region option (i.e., Northwest [state]) would seem a fair idea, but that would break down fairly quickly among the biggest states, and I do still see something in the alternative, as I said, mixed. I think that ultimately Representatives are not the strongest drivers in local politics and perhaps should not be, earmarking and pork-barrel always exists, but I would favor a political mindset where the loyalty was more to the general opinions of the voters of a district, and not the physical 'province' of it. I think that is reasonable on a state level with Senators, where the state is an independent entity, and less so looking for a bridge for Decatur-Urbana-Champaign, which next cycle becomes Decatur-Springfield-Peoria, or whatever.

I think that that may be more of a feature than a bug. Deliberation and deal-making based on individual interests and quirks would be the province of the Senate, longer terms, more time to get to know people, less people to know, and the House, where I think that is already mostly gone, would be much more of a voting body than a deliberative body. Turnover would likely be higher with incumbency perhaps less of an advantage, and party leadership weaker with a sufficiently diverse and amorphous group, more opportunity for niche interests to at least attempt to have a say, and a general operating process centered more around ideological take than partisan whipping. You would likely find more breaking from the party-line with things like Democrats representing a heavily rural, unionized district of that socially conservative fiscally liberal bent that would otherwise be swallowed up in a larger district, or the resurrection of some New England Republicans in pockets up there, perhaps even something as odd as a New York City conservative coming from a district largely made up of Orthodox Jewish neighborhoods, or college-town Democrats in red states, and legitimate chances for third-party candidates.

There are weaknesses to that as well, of course, as much as it is universally lampooned, the two-party system does do a fair job of reining in the most reckless impulses of ideological figures, but with the Senate still as a check, I could see something coming from a House that is far more of an actual 'People's House'.

Have you looked into how naming is done in, say, Canada or the United Kingdom? That's basically what I would advocate for. If you know of any negative effects from their naming convention system though, let me know.

I cannot claim any particularly familiarity with either or their effects, but I will take a look.

Of course, knowing that Canada and the UK do it make me a little more sour on the idea, but that is just a bit of reflexive nationalism (and a touch of guilt by association).
