Citizens Dedicated To Preserving Our Constitutional Republic

 In 1790 the total population of the United States was 3.9 million and there were 59 members in the House of Representatives. There was one Representative for every 66,000 people. 
Today a population of 330 million and have 435 members of the House of Representatives. There is one representative for every 750,000 If the ratio of today existed in 1790 there would have only been 4 or 5 members in the House of Representatives 
In the Congressional Districts of today the Representatives wield much greater power than they did in the early days of our country. Conversely the power of the people has diminished significantly. 
The war for American independence was fought over the colonists lack of representation in the British Parliament. The colonist knew their rights as British citizens were being ignored. 
Today, the American people are being victimized all over again by our own government. Just like in the 1770's, the voice of the people is not being heard. By increasing representation in the House, the political power will shift from Congress the people.

Seems obvious that the need to build a larger House chamber out weighed the need for representation.

Pragmatically how would a chamber of 5000 people work?
