  •  all of that is true (0+ / 0-)

    but Oak Ridge is still the biggest town in Anderson & Roane Co.s.  There are lots of more backward counties than Anderson in TN.  Which is why i think they must have gerrymandered OR, to divide up the librul vote into otherwise blood-red districts.

      and fairly close to Knoxville (the 4th largest city in Tennessee (3rd largest on game days).  The county is fairly well populated as well.  I grew up west, in Morgan County, and going to Oak Ridge, was, to me, "goin to the Big City".

      Minority rights should never be subject to majority vote.
