Looks like the Republicans are trying for that permanent majority again. A lot of people don't know it, but in the recent election Democrats overall won a majority of votes for the House of Representatives...yet Republicans still control it, all due to this same redistricting. As long as the majority party controls the district lines, they can game the system to their advantage. But this Electoral College change is a new one. I can see it happening in my state of Ohio too. Redistricting here has made us a very red state, at least as far as state government goes. An idea like this could get the approval of the Ohio statehouse and governor easily... ...and help create a more or less permanent Republican government in this country. This idea is obviously a conservative admission that they can't win on their own merits. It's also an admission that all this talk about changing, about not being the stupid party, is more about publicity and tactics, and not at all about changing their mindset or policies to better conform with what is best for the country. Big surprise there. Anyway, if this idea gets off the ground, it may very well be the next political ****storm, further dividing our country. The Republican party really knows no bottom.
