Gerrymandering is just voter fraud with a fancy name. Just vote by counties.

Conservatives should just Go Galt and leave California ASAP. Maybe move to Nevada and Colorado to shore up the patriots who have had the brain dead zombies invade them.

That way, when the inevitable happens, they won’t be around to suffer the consequences or get blamed for it.

I personally don’t think the congessional lines made THAT much of a difference.

What is really killing the GOP in CA is party registration, down to 29% statewide, 16% in LA. Just barely ahead of Declined to State. If current trends continue by 2014 GOP will be third in the state behind the Dems and Declined to State. There are now only 15 GOP congressman left out 0f 53 in the state delegation. The Dems now have super majorities in both houses of the state legislature, they can now pass tax increases without having to go to ballot initiatives. The GOP in CA has effectively been driven out of all of the major metropolitan areas except for Orange County. What few congressmen and state legislators we have left are mostly found in the most rural and remote corners of the state. Three more GOP congressmen were defeated in the last election-—Mary Bono Mack, Dan Lungren, and Brian Bilbray. CA is now as solidly blue as one party states like MA, RI, CT, and VT.

Sorry, Reagan Country is a thing of the past. Too bad CA used to be such a great state with a strong vibrant economy. Now an economic basket case, third highest unemployment rate in the nation, cities left and right filing for bankruptcy. The state government drowning in an ocean of debt.

Not my state anymore (yes I still live here) not my country anymore.

Adding to my list of proposed Constitutional Amendments a ban on gerrymandering, replaced by a completely random mapping of CD’s to create the most geometrically uniform districts commensurate with evenly divided population.
