    Red Herring fallacy.

    Nonsense.

    This runs contrary to the most fundamental principles of Federalism. Creating House districts, as with writing elections law, is the sole purview of the states.

    The states would never ratify such an 'amendment,' and appropriately so.

    The problem is Republicans know they can’t win when districts are created conforming to existing geographic and political boundaries, reflecting a diverse cross-section of the population, and instead contrive bizarre districts designed solely to benefit Republican candidates.

    Bullshit. Take a look at the Maryland and Illinois. Those two states are a gerrymander special courtesy of the Democratic Party. There used to be more states gerrymandered by the Democrats too, but since they lost legislative control after the 2010 elections in a whole bunch of states they weren’t given the opportunity to gerrymander for another 10 years in a lot of the other states

    MEANWHILE two of the 3 districts in question were ORDERED by the Federal Government under Clinton and have been maintained ever since by ORDER of the Justice Department.

    Not like the GOP. Both do it, that is why we need to get rid of the EC.

    Why do you think that is, because most of the pop. was not allowed to vote but still counted for the EC. We should have known this was the wrong way a long time ago.

    Oh yeah, they certainly do, tard. Like I said, the only reason why the Republicans have so many more gerrymandered states right now is because they swept the 2010 elections and controlled most of the redistricting. You guys never complain about your own gerrymanders in Illinois and Maryland and you never complained in the past about the other states you once had rigged in your favor like North Carolina and Texas.


    What does Congressional District gerrymandering have to do with the Electoral College? Absolutely nothing.

    Congratulations moron, gerrymandering by definition is partisan. Calling something partisan gerrymandering is just redundant simpleton talk.
