Tag Archive: Gerrymandering


Hah.

Honestly, gerrymandering is a bipartisan problem. There are several solutions, but again and again we learn that we can’t trust the politicians to pick the voters.

That’s Cute:

Michael Moore thinks gerrymandering is something only Republicans do.

And take gerrymandering away from their state representatives. It’s sort of a loss for Republicans in that they were the challengers, but gerrymandering is an issue both parties are absolutely guilty of, and this┬áruling minimizes gerrymandering in one state. Hopefully other states’ populations can get the will to enact similar reforms.

A Victory Against Gerrymandering

In Maryland. Good. Gerrymandering is a problem both parties practice, I’m glad to see it stopped anywhere.

Yet again.

Gerrymandering is one of the most awful corrupters of our elective process. It’s a saddening to see anyone of either party support it, even when it benefits their own political ideals.

It should come as little surprise to anyone that Obama’s DOJ is also unconstitutionally pressuring how states redistrict themselves.

The supposedly bipartisan committee that was supposed to redistrict Arizona just passed the job off to an Obama campaign group.

Michael Graham discusses the gerrymandering that’s currently going on in Massachusetts -and how much of our political failures it’s responsible for.

Gerrymandering is pretty much a potential problem everywhere, and should be fought wherever it’s found. Massachusetts has been gerrymandered in the extreme for decades, and it shows. What’s amazing is how many voters here like the situation.

Based on the idea that we actually can measure it, in some sense.

Algorithmic solutions are obviously the way to solve this problem, but this is the first time I’ve heard something that actually can measure how much the zones are gerrymandered at the end.

First of all, let me say that Republicans have gerrymandered districts before as well, and that all instances of gerrymandering should be exposed and prevented. With that said, observe what’s currently occurring in San Diego: The supposedly neutral, non-partisan redistricting process is being hijacked by front groups composed of union members.
