A mind is a terrible thing to waste…

…especially on a fake president who is also missing honesty, intelligence, respect for human rights, an understanding of basic economics and fairness. Who is followed around by a loyal fan club of voters whose basic political precepts have been formed by so-called reality TV.

Bill Gates is not impressed. Neither was the majority of voters in our last presidential election. Shows you what gerrymandering can accomplish.

    Except, in the 2016 presidential elections, gerrymandering played no direct role, as it was the states’ borders, mostly set more 100 years ago, that allowed a minority to elect the president.
    (“No direct role”, since, indirectly, gerrymandering had probably been responsible for a few Republican-controlled state legislatures that passed voter ID and other voting restrictions that mostly prevented Democrats from voting.

      Broadly, gerrymandering also includes population size vs representation. Major differences between actually number of voters vs representation from state to state. When Canada – for example – setup jurisdiction for voting districts, they included closer standardization on representation vs population.

      The US is still trying to compensate rural slave owners from the 18th Century.
