Gerrymandering

So, if, contrary to the current 5-4 decision of the Court, it is unconstitutional to take districting away from the legislatures, let’s elect centrist and independents to our legislatures who are capable of drawing districts according to natural political areas rather than partisan interests. Let’s embarrass our representatives into subordinating private interest to the good of the state and nation and the sanctity of the political process. We should be ashamed, but a droid could more be trusted with drawing districts than either party, if fed the key rational criteria. Let’s produce such maps, and dare the politicians to object, embarrass them into supporting the maps, or face the political future of a known adherent of a partisan faction that is not able to aim at the public good. And let us hope elections themselves are never so subject to parties.
