    Even Republicans should be upset , why? because our vote does not count. If we democrats are not persistent and asleep for several years and if they also control the 2020 census, we are going to be completely controlled by the Freedom Caucus. We need to fight and vote in midterms, and demand to end the Electoral College. We have always won the maj vote even with inception of the ACA , yet GOP took more seats. I saw this in Mi. In NC they said it was illegal.

    So when they say it was due to the ACA (which needs tweaking) do not let them say that, because its not true, tell them its due to the gerrymandering and tea party and big money,

    Someone said , the Freedom Caucus is no different than Hamas, and if you look at it , they are right, complete control over a population, not freedom. Expect to see the biggest gap between wealth and the poor with them , and the poor and median income class and middle class will be nothing more than slave labor.

    Do not be fooled.

    Yes, the Republicans gained 63 seats in the House in 2010 because of gerrymandering that took place in 2012.

    Wait.......what? DERP!!!

    You'd be surprised that most do not know what gerrymandering is , but in Mi most of us do.

    The point is I hear a lot on the news from the GOP , that Democrats lost seats due to the ACA, and that is not true. I am not saying that Democrats have not gerrymandered, but never to the extent of the GOP.

    Something is terribly wrong with our election system, and its needs to start with the electoral college which is long past due and archaic.

    They lost 63 seats in 2010. What was the cause?

    Sorry, but that would leave the presidential election to the east and west coast, ignoring everyone in between.

    Well too bad they have less EC votes anyway, they really do not matter do them? Everyone who votes the vote counts. Its the only fair way. Trumps hero Jackson wanted to do away with the EC and Trump himself even agreed with him at one time.

    No they have less people, and people are the ones voting, remember. Animals do not vote.

    The gerrymandering you are talking about didn't take affect until 2012. The GOP swept the Congress in 2010, tard, and yes, it was very much due to ObamaCare, among other things.

    But hey, go ahead and keep making a fool out of yourself. We're all very impressed.

    Ridiculous. You clowns post this BS crap everyday pretending to have some inside source. What you NEVER have is any proof of anything other than that you are a prevaricator.
