Recent Supreme Court Ruling Confirms Republicans are Trying to Disenfranchise African-Americans

Back in 2013, the Supreme Court proved how out of touch it can be when it issued a ruling striking down a key provision in the Voting Rights Act that required several states (mostly in the South) with a history of racism and discrimination to get federal approval before changing election laws. Obviously these laws […]

The Humiliating Statistic From This Year’s Elections That Republicans Don’t Want to Talk About

It’s only been a week since this year’s midterm elections, but it seems like it’s been much longer. Since the elections, there’s been an endless parade of Republicans on just about every news outlet boasting about the massive victories experienced by their party this year. And they’re right.

Judge Rules that Florida Republicans Tried to Rig Congressional Elections

Out of all the corrupt issues plaguing politics, gerrymandering might be one of the worst.  I’ve never quite understood the “logic” behind letting politicians redraw congressional lines.  That’s like trusting a burglar with the keys to your house while you’re away on vacation.

Republicans aren’t […]

Unbelievable: Texas Admits to Partisan Gerrymandering and Racism–Claims It Isn’t as Bad as the 60’s

It’s amazing the kind of honesty that will come out when someone, or something, is forced to defend themselves in court against harsh accusations.  And that’s exactly what we’re seeing with the State of Texas defending its new strict voting laws against the Department of Justice’s accusations that they’re targeting minorities. You see, Republicans in […]

Gerrymandering: The Real Story Behind How Mark Sanford Won SC-1

If you are like me, you were shocked, disgusted, and horrified by the outcome of the special election in South Carolina’s 1st Congressional District last week. To be honest, when I first heard that Mark Sanford had beaten Elizabeth Colbert Busch, I wanted to throw up a little bit in my mouth. I found it […]
