    Yeah I do...........there are several states (Washington where I live being one) where 80% of the counties where the voters are moderate to conservative and the Seattle Tacoma corridor where a huge population is all Liberal....It actually equals thing out.

    Just trying to level the playing field my left wing friend. I wish every state where there is huge liberal population in the cities would do it.

    My Dad started in the Navy in 1944 before air Force in 1946 so go easy on me.
    The best Western Maryland will ever get is West Virginia, if we move to Provinces, such as "Bible Belt".
    Have you ever smelled the paper mills around Swanton, MD?

    Your moniker is correct because you are so wrong here. I grew up on the Washington Country/Fredrick County border just across the Mason-Dixon line. It was largely federal dollars part of the Appalachian Commission but you would know that if you ever be east of Fredrick. Btw, living in Maryland for a few years, you tend to forget Maryland history. Here is a good place to start to understand Maryland politics and why people want to do this.

    The last straw was Roscoe G. Bartlett being voted out of a district which he held for 20 years because Democrats gerrymandered his district after the 2010 census.

    Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats. It is inaccurate to say that I hate everything. I am strongly in favor of common sense, common honesty, and common decency. This makes me forever ineligible for public office. H.L Mencken

    It won't stop the ass kicking the reps are inviting on themselves.

    Western Maryland is doing just fine. It's not like the rich of DC and Baltimore don't travel there at least once a year for a short vacation. It's not Hagerstown hasn't grown up and doesn't have Schmankrel Stube, nor has Fredrick or Cumberland or Frostburg...

    All states have a history of how their lines got drawn.
    How did Maryland's?

    Maryland was gerrymandered in 2011 after the census. Welcome to America
