Gerrymandering has reached a point in much of this country that legislators and Congresspersons now choose their voters rather than the voters choosing their legislators and Congressmembers. This defeats the whole purpose of the political process and is part of why we have the polarization we have today. Ethics and integrity are not typically characteristics of most politicians. Most are interested only in raw power, and gerrymandering, especially extreme gerrymandering, is part of that greed. Those in power will not willingly give it up, witness the ongoing refusal to comply with law by the DOJ, the Trump White House, Moscow Mitch’s refusal to comply with his Constitutional responsibilities when Obama was in office, his refusal to advance bills passed by the House. The Republican Party does not have the wisdom, honesty, integrity, or good judgment to pass this bill. Still, it needs to be introduced and supported.
