    You do realize that's fantasy-land, right? Making such claims is really no different than being a communist arguing for utopia.

They went from a Republican district to "Democrat" because Annapolis decided to cut 1/3rd of their voting block and give it to another Republican district, then gave Western Maryland voters from the DC metro area (liberal). So instead of 2 Republican districts, you now have one. This is despite the fact that Western Maryland represents 40% of vote prior to the gerrymandering.
    Gerry all the way.

    And Annapolis windbags justify it as it's "fair".. well if 40% of your vote get 0% representation.. then that's a problem.
    Understand. However, if you think Gerry-mandering is bad in Maryland, look at Texas, Pennsylvania, North Carolina. This is why Texas was on the watch list since 1990. And now the SCOTUS is involved. Voting rights is the issue of this Century so far.

    We have 100 Senators and 435 Representatives. As righties would say, get over and used to it. My solution to petition out and change states to West Virginia remains on the table.

    The problem with calling this a "movement" is that formation of new states (or new state boundaries) is never going to happen peacefully and they lack the means to do so by force. Insanity is not all that interesting.
    I don't know why you say that. If its the will of the people it could very well happen. You live in a state where your vote counts. I don't. I vote for the Conservative or Moderate candidate every time but because I live in a Western Wash a very liberal area of the state my candidate who many times is the better candidate never wins.

    My problem is I love Washington state. To me its God country. I lust don't like the politics. I have been here for 36 years and will die here and be buried at Tahoma National Cemetery.
