Also, you mentioned Austria, couldn't an arguement be made to take away votes?

Exactly! That's why this proposal from Poland is dumb. Has a Polish person ever killed someone from another EU country (even, say in the last 60 years, which seems to be your cutoff)? Of course. So do we need to search for all cross-national murder convictions in the EU, extrapolate how many people were killed and the likely number of offspring they would have had and then run some algorithim to figure out what the populations of each nation would have been if there weren't evil in the world? Good luck.

You keep on about serial killers writing books, but we're not talking about writing books, we're talking about votes. Here's one for you: The Green River Killer murdered at least 48 women in Washington state in the '70s through '90s. He was from Utah. Should we try to figure out whether the addional population Washington would have had were it not for this murderous Utah resident would entitle Washington to extra votes in the electoral college? That's the kind of thing you're advocating.

Some people apparently don’t grasp the concept of genocide.

“Should we try to figure out whether the addional population Washington would have had were it not for this murderous Utah resident would entitle Washington to extra votes in the electoral college? “

You have a point that’s well made — however, Poland lost millions of people. I can understand the PM’s opinion, even though I don’t agree that it’s anything Germany could have done anything to stop, given Hitler’s MO at the time.

Using the scenario of different states and the electorial college, if Utah invaded washington and its neighboring states, for the sole purpose of taking control of the country, and killed off large chunks of the population but failed, should Utah still be able to claim, come census time, we should get more electorial votes, why, we have more people, how? Because we killed off chunks of the other states populations. If one state reduces another states population in a bid for power, do they get a pass? that is what you are advocating.
