      And you can bet the nutless Dems will play nice and won't respond with similarly aggressive proposals for IL, NY, or other states where they fully control the process.
      I talked about this exact district, Cooper’s Nashville district, back when I was arguing with Dx over whether Democrats were fucked in the House through redistricting alone. This doesn’t appear to be a final map, but I won’t be surprised if it’s something close to it. They might be fucked a couple cycles from now, but who cares if you’re a Republican? Take what you can get now.
      As for Democrats, yeah, I fully expect us to do the same sh-t. New York could become 23-3 if drawn correctly, and Illinois could become 14-3 if drawn correctly. Kinzinger may be out of a job come January 2023. Same with either Stefanik or Tenney of NY. If Democrats are really feeling froggy, they may shoot for 3-0 in New Mexico. We “cheat” just as much as Republicans do, minus that dipsh-t in Oregon who gave the GOP a say in their maps.
      All that said, I agree with your initial premise that gerrymandering needs to be banned for myriad reasons, not the least of which it can, and does, hurt minority turnout.

      • You should never get to decide who gets to vote for you. The whole idea is just Anti-Democratic. I hate that I have to support the idea just to attempt to keep things fair...

        And NY for sure is going to shift. The new Governor supports it unlike Cuomo. I read about New Mexico a while ago but forgot about Illinois.

              Go nuclear. I kinda like it. Do districts need to be contiguous by federal or state law?

                I'm confused how McCarthy has a district with 750K people since it seems to not have any population centers: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Califo...ional_district

                Nunes and the 22nd at least has Visalia to the extent that's anything: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Califo...ional_district

                    ???

                    Bakersfield "metro" is 500k+, with decent sized suburbs that look like they're in his district. Lancaster is also over 150k (spent 5 years of my life there, 2 weeks at a time in hotel rooms).

                    • California is like China: they have all these minor cities which all have 500k people in them (in China it's 5M). Long Beach, Bakersfield, Santa Ana, Riverside, Stockton, Irvine. They'd be the second-largest city in a flyover state but we don't even notice them among the gazillion people in CA.

                        OK, that actually shocks me. I think of Lancaster as 3 titty bars and a bail bondsman, as in a Zappa song. I really think of that place as tumble weeds and drunk truckers.

                          Yeah to me it didn't register as that large, or the areas outside of Bakersfield either. Or at least not enough to add all the way up to 750K.

                              You're not wrong. It's those 4 things plus 50,000 single family homes, all on 1/8 acre lots with dirt lawns. 90+% of the people who live there commute 90 minutes each way down to the Valley or LA to work 12-hours at a blue collar or service job, then drive home and collapse. Not a lot of demand for entertainment options in a town like that.
