Have you ever wondered why:
● your state is a Red/Blue State ?
● why your district is shaped "funny" ?
● why congressmen stay in office for 30+ years ?
● what a "safe seat" is ?
It's called Gerrymandering. Diebold has nothing on this !
The voters Do Not pick their Representatives, the Representatives pick the Voters;
"Most of us accept that our electoral system is corrupted, or at least compromised. We have an ongoing debate in this country about how to best conduct our elections—how to prevent voter suppression and tampering, and how to make the system more accurate and accountable. But maybe we have a bigger problem—bigger than punch cards versus touch screens. Maybe elections are decided well before Election Day."

Gerrymandering Documentary trailer:
"In 2003, 53 State Legislators fled Texas to block an unprecedented Congressional redistricting plan"
Now you can play the game:
"As a mapmaker, I can have more of an impact on an election than a campaign, [more of an impact] than a candidate. When I, as a mapmaker, have more of an impact on an election than the voters....... the system is out of whack"
- David Winston (who drew House districts for the GOP after the 1990 U.S. census)
