  •  You know.... due to down-ballot votes (8+ / 0-)

    there were actually MORE votes cast for Dems in the House than for Republicans... HUM.

    Can you say GERRYMANDERING works?

    Creating 45/55 D/R districts, or diluting the population and spreading it around in most districts that they can and then....

    Taking a district and making it 85/15 D/R and putting as many Democrats into one or two districts is just plain wrong, it doesn't reflect the people and it completely POWER and GREED of the folks who draw them lines.

    There are a few States that have seperate people coming up with the maps but here in Texas....  We are PURPLE and would probably be BLUE if not for the Gerrymandering.

    Austin - Dallas - San Antonio - Houston are all BLUE.  Heck, Houston has an openly Gay Mayor and the people love her.

    I'm mad at the system but not all Texans are ignorant.

    -6.13 -4.4 Where are you? Take the Test!!!

      so for all the folks here saying the gerrymandering prohibits the Dems taking back the House in 2014, they need to look twice... and notice how many House seats we picked up this cycle.

      What is this I hear of sorrow and weariness, Anger, discontent and drooping hopes... Life is too strong for you-- It takes life to love Life
