Get angry and spread the word and participate


From the link “Paper on Gerrymandering” in “Research” lower right:

Have you ever wondered why many politicians engage in political corruption without concern about voter anger and rejection at the next election? ;
Or why they engage in punitive legislation targeting their opponents and even their own constituents? Or why they cater to special interests while ignoring the needs of their voter constituency? Or why incumbent politicians abuse illegal narcotic drugs and alcohol while in office, and still get re-elected?Gerrymander is one of the significant reasons for such behavior. (Gerrymander is commonly pronounced with a soft g.) Gerrymandering is the drawing of election district boundary lines for partisan advantage, to favor the majority party and incumbent politicians of all political parties. A more strongly worded definition of gerrymander is the following: Gerrymandering is an abuse of the redistricting process to draw election district boundaries that give a significant unfair and undeserved vote count advantage in future elections to the majority political party, which controls the redistricting process, and to incumbent politicians of all political parties. “
