It Is Crucial To Understand Our System

The Supreme Court currently has a five-to-four majority for the Republicans. That has been true for a long time. Four (out of those nine) Republicans (Roberts, Alito, Gorsuch and Kavanaugh) are there because of George W. Bush and #BenedictDonald. The lower two layers of federal courts have hundreds of W. and #FakePresident nominees sitting there for life, too, just like the Supreme Court. The amount of deregulation, and both assisting in and ignoring, corporate criminality, by W. and #CriminalDonald, is enough to make the planet burn.

Then there is this story, and all it represents: Rigging and fixing the district lines (gerrymandering) to give Republicans decade-long structural advantages in elections, which are held in and by the states. Then, they rig and fix the once-every-ten-years-Census to undercount Democratic states and harm them for the next 10 years. Census data is VERY important, determining both Congressional representation and billions of dollars of federal spending. Republicans know how our system works – including two Senators per state, regardless of population or size – the Wyomings, Idahos, Dakotas, etc. – give roughly 20% of the total population immense, oversized power in the U.S. Senate – half of Congress. And only one-half of Congress – the U.S. Senate – confirms federal judges for life. It is Republicans’ knowledge of our system – coupled with their immoral, criminal willingness to abuse and corrupt our system – while calling themselves #Christians and #Patriots – that has gotten us here. If we want to stop this madness, if we want to #WinTheFuture, then, please, let’s learn our system, work with our system, and take back our system. That means #NoPurityTests, #NoShortAttentionSpan, #RepealAndReplaceRepublicans.
