A clear minority of the populace has an oversized influence in deciding our nation's policies based solely on their concerted efforts to marginalize other Americans' right to vote.
Is there anyone who truly thinks the GOP wouldn't cry foul at this obvious attempt to steal elections if the tables were turned?
As it is, gerrymandering works to the GOP's advantage, so complaints about a few million voters being effectively disenfranchised every election cycle falls on deaf ears.
The GOP won't lift a finger to advance democratic principles in this country because the party lacks the desire to govern in any sort of equitable manner that would compel a majority of US citizens to vote for them.
The founding fathers wanted representation in the US House (The purveyor of our nation's looming shutdown) to be proportional to a state's population.
Well the majority of NC voters wanted the democratic party to represent them in Washington DC, yet the GOP provides the greatest number of representatives. The majority of Americans voters wanted the democratic party to represent them in the US House too, yet the GOP is in control. Why? Simply because of unethical behavior on the part of politicians and their corporate sponsors.
What exactly would you call a system where the vote of the majority is systematically and intentionally disregarded due to collusion by political and corporate interests?
What has historically occurred in societies where the majority feels the system is rigged against them?
Keep it up GOP, your day is coming.
