The 112th Congress has been the most unproductive of any legislative body in the history of U.S. It is obviously due the GOP congressmen who , because of Gerrymandering, no longer have to answer to the voters for their actions or lack there of. Therefore, I have created a petition on We the People, and I am now asking for your support. Will you add your name to mine and mention it on your show please ? If this petition gets 25,000 signatures by January 31, 2013, the White House will review it and respond! I am aware that the Executive office alone has cannot reform Gerrymandering but perhaps raising the issue will help public understand the real corruption that is being wraught on the American people. No one should be able to manipulate the election process. Here's some more information about this petition:http://wh.gov/U9AV Reform Gerrymandering .
Gerrymandering was originally designed to insure government representation
of all regardless of race, creed, religion, gender, and political affiliation
but several members of the House of Representatives have found ways to
corrupt the process by insuring their seats which undermine the election
process causing disproportionate representation; allowing representatives to
disregard the interests of their people. Members of the house are not
elected to represent a political party or lobby group, but the people. The
gerrymandering process must be fixed for the country to move forward and not
be held back by those that pursue their own agenda. Leaders must compete for
the votes so the right people are chosen to speak. Gerrymandering is explained in the video below

The video is very interesting. I have two ideas: a districting method to lessen gerrymandering, and a proportional-representation district system for legislative elections to lessen gerrymandering's effects.

Impeachment: The Difference Between Nixon & Trump

Thom plus logo There is a very simple reason why some Republicans participated in the impeachment proceedings against Richard Nixon, but none have so far broken ranks against Trump. That reason is the US Supreme Court.
