    but we push through in order to pay attention because too much is at stake.

    Now what to we DO to push back against this?!

    Rachel Maddow is doing great work for her country in spotlighting this debacle.

    I am so very dissapointed in my fellow Americans in the Republican Party who would even consider the prospect of a gerrymandered distribution of electoral college votes.

      How dare they try to make our elections unfair? Do we not stand for justice? Is it because what they do is legal? Should it be? Ask questions, ream the daylights out of the issue, make it public, make people vomit at the injustice--even Republicans, make them disown the dirty fighting tactics of their party.

      Make the GOP back down from the people's anger, not just 'disapproval'.

        and wide
        article in Wash Post today (with lame title and lacking the SALIENT fact that the districts the Republicans want to use to allocate electoral votes in Presidential electon are GERRYMANDERED districts--they just did it. No word on Why That Is So Very Wrong)

        for either party

        MA has gerrymandered districts too. For Dems. If we were going to then allocate electoral votes by them I'd also be up  in arms because IT IS WRONG> The majority party in state government if dominant enough can alter those districts (as they have in Va, MI, OH, WI, etc and in MA) therefore is given control over PRESIDENTIAL elections but the people did not elect them to do that.
        It is wrong.
