    Someone seemingly gerrymandered the **** out of my state house district in the last few years.

    Hell, I used to live in a different district entirely, but now it's the 193rd. Haven't moved though...

    I went here and acquired the district map from 2001, then the map from 2012 after changes during 2011 and 2012.

    Interestingly, because of the redistricting, in 2012 when I voted, BOTH districts were on the ballot - the 92nd (where I used to vote) and the 193rd (where I vote now).

    If you look at the maps, especially in the better versions via that link, you'll note that the redistricting in 2011-2012 removed a city from the district (Hanover, it looks like)...and skirts the boundaries of two cities it was never close to before (Carlisle and Newville).


    If I had to guess, the republicans did a little redistricting to give their incumbent a better reelection chance.


    Edit: then again, I'd say the 2001 version was a bit gerrymandered itself. Probably democrats.

    I always love how Proglibs ignore what he was saying while spitting on his grave. Better to extend the racist bigotry he died to overcome, than embrace the inclusiveness, which they reject to maintain their agenda. Obviously, at times, such individuals leave no doubt where they stand.

    I don't expect them to, think I've established that pretty clearly. You initiated this conversation in response to me stating that the NAACP is pretty much a sub-organization for the Democrat Party.

    So then you agree, the NAACP is pretty much a partisan entity. While a majority of blacks are Democrats, not all are so perhaps they should amend their mission statement to state they only support the advancement of black Democrats, black liberals or black progressives. Clearly they don't live by their current mission statement otherwise they'd celebrate Tim Scott's victory as this is pretty significant advancement for a black American.

    This election ISN'T about who won, it's about who lost. The electorate voted AGAINST Democrats much more than they voted FOR Republicans, because the Democrats are a bunch of dickless chicken****s who let the narrative be written for them.
    Are you in denial or what. This is not the first time Obama and the liberals got a shellacking, quoting Obama, this time the atom bomb went off. The reason the bomb went off is because of Obama's and liberal policies. But your in denial just like Obama is.

    Don't you realize, you have to hold the same value system of hate, as those you accuse of having hate, in order to make such an asinine statement?


    Do you find using black people as a bat on your political opponents an honorable position to hold?

    Truman Library - Public Papers of the Presidents: Harry S. Truman

    I've seen it happen time after time. When the Democratic candidate allows himself to be put on the defensive and starts apologizing for the New Deal and the fair Deal, and says he really doesn't believe in them, he is sure to lose. The people don't want a phony Democrat. If it's a choice between a genuine Republican, and a Republican in Democratic clothing, the people will choose the genuine article, every time; that is, they will take a Republican before they will a phony Democrat, and I don't want any phony Democratic candidates in this campaign.
    Harry Truman's words from 1952 ring true today. The Democrats refused to run as Democrats, and they got killed for it. Deservedly so.

    Oh so your saying if the democrats ran more to the left of Obama they would have won. Who are you kidding. No one. And what if the democrats told more lies about their policies and tried harder to lie and cover up their scandals, they would have won. You are in denial. Period. But you are a typical liberal there is always someone to blame. The truth is, in this case it is failed policies and you can put all the lipstick you want on that pig and it's still a pig. Nice try.

    No, I'm saying that if they actually ran on the very real accomplishments of the last six years instead of running away from and apologizing for them, they might not have gotten drubbed as badly. They probably still would have lost seats, due to the nature of the races, but they certainly wouldn't have gotten completely undressed.

    What real accomplishments? There is none. But maybe you can enlighten me.
