    I don't trust that Republicans won't go ahead and apply their gerrymandered districts to the 2016 Presidential election.  They won't do it now, because that would give us too much time to fight it out in court or qualify a proposition.

    I think Wisconsinites should start qualifying petitions anyway.
    1.a. Redistricting done by non-partisan commission with rules to defeat attempts at gerrymandering.
    1.b. Special redo of redistricting now.
    2. Keep winner-take-all for Presidential elections for now.  Join the NPV effort.

    Even Democrats can be asses. Look at Rahm Emanuel.

      are behind putting a referendum on the ballot regarding all that money that rolls in for elections.  They've been buying or gerrymandering elections and that has to stop.

      We don't have any possibility of doing anything about redistricting, outside of the court case I discussed, because the GOP still has the trifecta in the state.  A non-partisan commission doing redistricting is a solution Republicans will never approve.

      There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.
