We are not a democracy

Goldberg, yet another  ignorant of American history

But the big problem with violating democratic norms — the unwritten customs and practices even political opponents traditionally abide by — is that once you’ve done it, everybody else wants to do it, too. This makes everything worse, because when the people most offended by Trump’s violations respond in kind, they not only contribute to the problem, they create incentives for Trump and his biggest supporters to keep doing it.

We are a set of states of various sizes with wide ranging proportionality in the senate.  It is actually the second or first major squabbles in the American system.  Well discussed, critical to understanding American history.  Yet, Goldberg cannot figure this out!
