    N. Carolina went ahead with the election anyway knowing it was rigged racially. The Pubs were working behind the scenes, the wrong person won the election, and we should re vote. We live in
    a crooked time. The only way the Pubs could win was by cheating. They were at it in my state of Mi
    as well , and you seen my post on WI. Clinton should automatically become Pres. elect.

    It shouldn't have gotten to a racially divided situation, as it has.

    Psst .... you're wrong.

    The suit did, in fact, happen. It is being appealed.

    HOWEVER - the outcome of the suit has nothing to do with presidential politics. Gerrymandering is an intrastate activity. It determines districts and MAY have an impact on state races.

    BUT - because North Carolina is a winner-take-all state for presidential elections, district distribution is irrelevant. Reporting is done by district, but the totals are wrapped up into a single number.

    Once again --- a lot of noise about nothing.

    Just throw shit at the wall and see what sticks, huh?

    No the pubs did it on purpose to throw the election. WI is going to the Supreme Court.

    The point is simple ....

    Any questionable gerrymandering is a state issue. It does not have any effect on the national election. Therefore, all this pissing and moaning by liberals about how Hillary got screwed is simply false.

    The same applies for Wisconsin.

    No, it certainly can't .... but I anxiously await your rationale.
