Campus Question – January 17, 2013

Tonight’s question, greetings, and banter here. (More)

Today Think Progress‘ Scott Keyes revealed that a GOP report boasted of gerrymandering their House majority. While The Hill‘s Alexandra Jaffe reports some House Republicans are concerned they may bungle away their majority and generic House polls now favor Democrats, Politico‘s Alex Isenstadt writes that district profiles favor Republicans, and RNC Chair Reince Priebus advocates changing Electoral College rules to help Republicans win the White House in 2016. Will the country be paying for the 2010 midterms until 2020?

    I certainly hope we won’t be paying until 2020. The idea truly depresses me. I’m hoping that the fact they are broadcasting it will get enough people to take notice and stop it. 2014 is a huge year to pay attention if we don’t want to be victimized by petty red dictators forever. 😈

    There’s a White House petition calling for legislation to require all states to award their Electoral College votes on a winner-take-all basis. I’d be fine with that or, in the alternative, requiring all states to award their Electoral College votes by congressional district plus two EC votes to the statewide winner.

    Oh, and Reince Priebus says that’s just about “giving states more control.” If that were true, he’d propose in Red states too. Advocate all This … or all That … but not Red states winner-take-all and Blue states awarded-by-district. Priebus’ plan, translated: “What’s ours is ours and what’s yours we’ll divide between us.”

  • I think the answer is yes, we will be paying for 2010 until 2020, at least in some measure. I wish we weren’t but that’s something that the idiot left have to keep having their noses rubbed in. If they had been pushing to get out the vote instead of advocating that people should stay home, we wouldn’t be cleaning up this mess.

    Don’t blame the mess on the 2010 election. It goes back to 1971 when the Chamber of Commerce started a war on Democracy.

    Big events happened in 2000 when the Religious Right was enlisted in this war. 2010 is one more date in the campaign.

    Yes it will continue through 2020 and it will not end there. It will end when the Supreme court represents the citizens, the Universities have restored freedom for scholarship and news organizations report news.
