    I'm going off of this statement, which talks about the voters of the district:



    This doesn't really seem to jive with the idea of blacks voting Democrat - minorities are usually less wealthy than whites.

    But I think what it really says is that party affiliation cuts across economic lines, and with gerrymandering, a rich Democratic neighborhood is less likely to be in the same district as the rich Republican neighborhood a few blocks over.
    You might have meant to say redistricting, which both parties do.

    Gerrymandering is how the parties redistrict.

    Most of these rich congress critters got rich while they were in congress. That is the big issue here.

    What did the Biblical Jesus do? He hung around people considered to be taboo by the religious establishment, asked his followers to give up everything they had, and then used that to help the poor. Jesus said that it's almost impossible for a rich person to be saved. This loon says that Jesus really meant that god wants the most hardworking and deserving to be rich.

    Guys like these are the money changers that Jesus flipped out on.

    Which is why Constitutional amendment #28 should be about term limits for the House and Senate. Will that ever happen - of course not, but it needs to.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Seriously? Socialism is a liberal concept. If you're a socialist, you can conveniently identify yourself as liberal because socialism is, well, liberal. If you're a liberal, that does not mean you're a socialist. Most liberals don't identify themselves as socialist. Now, are you still going to use this single event as evidence that supports what you believe and use it to generalize all liberals?

    Nope but he did support charity which according to all reports republicans give more money to charity than liberals do. they also tend to be happier.

    It's two different words for the same thing unfortunately. I meant to say gerrymander rather than redistrict because it is possible to redistrict without gerrymandering. Neither party wants that though.
