    If the r's continue to lose Latinos 70/30, Texas goes purple in 2020 maybe 2016. Then they really are on life support.

    Gerrymandering has been common as horse turds past and present. However the 2000 election decided by SCOTUS is an egregrious example of lengths that Republicans will go to to have their candidate installed in office. On the surreptitious side, the words of Anonymous following our recent election need more attention. The evidentiary trail of our current process of electronic elections is like a handfull of mercury.

    The Supreme Court of the United States doing its job is an example of a political party rigging the election? I'm hearing echoes of "Corrupt Bargain" again...only it's not 1824.

    I don't agree. They were in the middle of a recount of paper ballots. Pretty easy stuff to hang on to. You can get a real grip on it. Not like that mercury. And you thnk the SCOTUS is better than a paper ballot?

    It was an interpretive job with those ballots, and frankly, no I do not believe your controversy would have died down at all. I support the Court in its decision to cut it off right then and there.

    The issues that I see with this new development

    • Gerrymandering of districts has made a mockery of fairness in the states.
    • Will create a constitutional crisis at some point and violence in the streets.



    How would this effect the election? I'll let someone else post all the numbers. But, here's an example from what the Republican senate did in Virgina. Obama won the election in the state, But due to gerrymandering, Romeny would have been given 9 EC votes and Obama 4 EC votes.
    Considering the questionable voting practices allowed to go on in Ohio and Pennsyvania, laws definitely need to be modified.
