Saturday, January 13, 2018. Beverly Hills, CA

Attention: THOM HARTMANN, SPEAKER PELOSI, AND AMERICA,

CANADA SOLVED ITS 100 YEAR OLD PROBLEM WITH GERRYMANDERING BEGINNING WITH THE PROVINCE OF MANITOBA WHERE … THE ELECTORAL BOUNDARIES READJUSTMENT ACT OF 1954 … LED THE WAY. WITHIN TEN YEARS ALL OF THE OTHER PROVINCES FOLLOWED. THE KEY WAS THE MANDATORY USING OF NON-PARTISAN COMMITTEES OF MOSTLY RETIRED JUDGES, POLITICAL SCIENTISTS AND RETIRED CIVIL SERVANTS RESIDING IN EACH PROVINCE TO OVERSEE THE MAP DRAWING.

THE BEST AND MOST IMPARTIAL FIX FOR THE NATIONAL IMBROGLIO OF PARTISAN GERRYMANDERING HERE IN AMERICA IS SIMPLY TO MAKE THE USE OF PRESENT COUNTY LINES AS THE BASIS FOR THE HOUSE DISTRICT LINES AND STATE LEGISLATIVE LINES… MANDATORY AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.

APPARENTLY, THIS IS WHAT THE COURT RECENTLY ORDERED IN NORTH CAROLINA: GONE ARE THE WEIRD-SHAPED DISTRICTS, AND NOW MOST OF THEM ARE SIMPLIFIED COLLECTIONS OF MOSTLY WHOLE COUNTY BORDERS. (THE TWO TWISTED-SHAPED DISTRICTS THAT CAUSED THE PRESENT PENDING APPEAL REALLY STAND OUT!)

WHERE THERE IS INSUFFICIENT POPULATION (700,000 etc.), HAVE TWO OR MORE JOINED COUNTIES MAKE UP ONE DISTRICT; WHERE A COUNTY SHOULD BE DIVIDED BECAUSE OF TOO MUCH POPULATION, USE STRAIGHT LINES (PREFERABLY HORIZONTAL OR VERTICAL), OR NATURAL BOUNDARIES!

CALIFORNIA HAS ALREADY IMPLEMENTED MOST OF THESE GUIDE LINES, BUT THEY NEED TO BE IMPLEMENTED ALSO IN THE TOP 24 HOUSE SWING STATES FOR 2018 — ESPECIALLY THOSE STATES WITH THE MOST EXTREME REPUBLICAN CONTROLLED GERRYMANDERING. (A LAW SUIT — CONCERNING CONTORTED DISTRICT BOUNDARIES — NEEDS TO BE WORKING ITS WAY TO THE US SUPREME COURT IN EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THESE 24 STATES!)

LEADER PELOSI, PLEASE SUBMIT A BILL IN THE HOUSE CALLED… THE ELECTORAL BOUNDARIES ANTI-GERRYMANDERING ACT OF 2018 … OR USE A BETTER TITLE!

THIS NEW LAW WOULD HELP THE DEMOCRATS TAKE BACK THE HOUSE IN 2018 FASTER THAN ANY OTHER ALGORITHM OR LOGISTIC.

Respectfully yours,

Arthur J. Earthmann

It's time to run bigger, better and harder on trade policies.
