    You call this democracy? :eek:

    NB The last person who tried this illegal stunt in England was fined 20 million pounds.

    Imagine this:

    an election is held in a state with no districts drawn up.

    After the election, the ruling party decides how they'll draw up the districts.

    Of course it's no surprise when the districts are drawn up with such precision to ensure as many seats for the ruling party possible, and this chokehold will continue indefinitely because the system will self-perpetuate.

    What would you call this system? Certainly not "democracy." Certainly not "fair."

    Factor in a 2 year delay, and that's exactly what's happened in Texas (I'll throw in that pun for nothin').

    Well, I'm gob-smacked, as we say in England. Is this the kind of democracy Junior is trying to export to Iraq? It's a joke!
