    Remember you said this and don't complain if a Republican president gets elected partially on the promise to end Obamacare.

    They should just come up with some sort of computer algorithm that will just take raw population data and create districts as close to uniform as possible.

    These folks are on the ball. Location and population are the only factors that should make any difference.

    On the partisan side of the discussion, doesn't it say something that pro Democrat means "protecting minorities from oppression"? Why aren't Republicans ashamed of that?

    Ashamed? by what? Stupid political pandering? The implication is that minorities would suffer without their betters caring for them. Personally it's the lefties that should be ashamed for such sentiments.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Pro democrat doesn't have **** to do with protecting minorities from oppression.Its about democrats trying to rig the voting districts in their favor due to some stereotype that minorities always vote for democrats.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Republicans are trying, and failing, to convince minorities that we believe they are equal and every bit as capable as anyone.

    Democrats are trying, and succeeding, in convincing minorities that they are genetically incapable of existing without the help of governmental intervention.

    That part is true. No one actually believes you when you say you believe that others are your equals. When your words say one thing and your actions another, we believe your actions. Republican actions are steeped in racism and bigotry.

    Democrats are trying, and succeeding, in convincing minorities that they are genetically incapable of existing without the help of governmental intervention.
    Or we recognize that they might need a little help to shake off all the crap you folks have done to them. It has nothing to do with genetics and everything to do with systematic oppression. Your scapegoats are the real underdogs. Do the American thing. Side with the underdogs.
