Response to Gothmog (Original post)

3. I live in Texas

In Congressional District 6. It encompasses 8 different towns, but mostly only PARTS of those towns. Primarily it leaves out the black and Hispanic areas of the same towns for other districts. The top of district 6 is a very populous area, while the middle and bottom of it is completely rural.

It's absolutely nonsense. There is no reason (logically) why the district would be drawn this way EXCEPT to ensure it stays republican.

If gerrymandering ended in Texas, then without a doubt, Texas would turn blue and ultimately change the entire national landscape of politics in America (electoral college).

This is a big deal.
