Democrats have been losing state and local elections to Republicans in some traditional "Blue" areas of the East/Northeast USA. And the extremely unsecure Mail-in/Drop-Box methods of casting votes, are being dramatically scaled back by legislatures in states that are close to 50/50 Democrat-Republican.

To counter this increasing headwind against their party, Democrats are utilizing other means to (they hope) give themselves a chance of holding a majority in the U.S. House and Senate.

One such method is to increase the potential number of Democrat seats, by reducing the number of Republican seats. They're doing this by "re-districting" sections of metro areas to make a specific district include more neighborhoods that are heavy-Democrat.

Republicans see this happening. But as Republicans did with the numerous state-level rule changes in 2020 that enabled Joe Biden to win, either don't care, or are paralyzed with fear. (i.e. Deer in the headlights.)

Former President Trump is sounding the early alarm over these Democrat "redistricting" moves, just like he did about the mass mail-in/drop-box voting methods implemented by Democrats, back in mid-2020.

Former President Donald Trump scorched Democrats’ aggressive redistricting efforts in New York and across the nation in a furious Saturday statement to supporters.

“Republicans are getting absolutely creamed with the phony redistricting going on all over the Country,” he emailed through his Save America PAC.

“We were expecting to do well in New York and now, we’ll lose 4 seats,” he griped — referring to the state’s new congressional map that has Empire State Republicans crying foul.

The key 11th District, which encompasses Staten Island and parts of Brooklyn, was redrawn this week to replace conservative neighborhoods like Bay Ridge and Dyker Heights with the blue bastions of Park Slope, Sunset Park and Gowanus — a boundary change that could oust Trump ally Rep. Nicole Malliotakis from Congress in November.

Meanwhile, in Republican-majority states like Ohio and North Carolina, courts have overturned new maps that were claimed to be overly generous to the GOP.

Trump cast blame on Republicans for allowing the Democrats’ gerrymandering to plow forward.

The Old Broken-Down Crow, Mitch McConnell, sits back and does nothing to help the Party,” he sneered.

I understand the concept of letting Democrats run the show for a time, to demonstrate how horrible they are for America, but IMO it's time to put a stop to it while the damage is still reversable.

Once you have the printing presses churning out enough money to have most of the nation reliant on the Federal Government in some way, the America we've had over the past 100+ years, is gone for good.

WHAT should Republicans do to combat this re-districting?

Flipping more Democrat seats to Republican, than Democrats can "Re-district to Democrat", is probably the most honorable way, even if it isn't the easiest way, to get a majority in the House/Senate.

The elections are fair if the winner was selected by a majority vote. Even if that leader screws the voters, at least they will know that he/she was elected fairly.

The PROBLEM is determining if all the ballots were real, and if they weren't, will a judge or law enforcement authority be willing to throw out the illegal ones.

That's the brick wall I think we're running in to regarding the 2020 election results in GA/PA/AZ/WI/MI. Tons of illegal ballots have been identified, but corruptness of authorities have prevented them from discarding the illegal ones, and adjusting the totals accordingly.

This has been called "gerrymandering" for so long that it's a suggestion in my phone's keyboard.

I've never once seen a piece of media suggesting it was ever used for any purpose outside of old white Christians manipulating votes to get more GOP seats in whatever the current election was.
Which of course is a tell tale sign that the communists have been using that exact tactic for a lifetime, and then accusing their opponents of doing exactly what they just did.

Thank-you for providing some background on the practice. Now I know what "gerrymandering" is. One day I'll look up the word itself to learn its root.

You're implying I should not point out these type of things on ATS?

I have heard a lot of people beating this drum, unfortunately it's obvious who the judicial branch is siding with. Else you wouldnt have the DOJ going after Georgia and Texas but ignoring several other democrat run states doing everything, they accuse GA and Tx of doing.

From the OP's content:

You're right. It appears certain judges want to protect their illegally gained standard-of-living, by keeping known crooks in power.

That member was joking, pointing out what democrats have been saying lately. Anything that opposes them is a threat to democracy is what they have been using lately.

Sarcasm.

You know anything that is negative about the DNC acquiring more power is a threat to democracy.

Both sides do it and then complain the other side does it.

Get rid of gerrymandering or allow both sides to do it.

Problem solved.

The damage isn't reversible. There's no leadership anywhere in America who can "undo" where we are at now, only break ground and pave road for where we go next. That means reconstruction.

Only redistricting? the brining thousands of illegals into their rat hole states to give them the right to vote within 30 days, living in the states under laws they have passed to allow illegals to vote in local elections.

This democrats' politicians do not care about America or Americans, they want the destruction of American as long as they can hold power, then they want the taxpayer so they can keep paying the growing welfare state of illegals in their corrupted rat hole states

The Republicans should do exactly what the Democrats do and vice versa. If the Democrats gerrymander, the Republicans should gerrymander. If the Democrats don't gerrymander then the Republicans shouldn't. Both parties should be on equal terms. Personally, I would like to see neither party doing it, but that would require a negotiated agreement between both parties and probably won't happen any time soon.

Going to indulge a wild shot in the dark and say all the illegal immigrants are being strategically "rehomed" to trigger gerrymandering effects for maximum voting numbers. Or that's the theory people are driving at here.

THIS IS THE KIND OF BACKBONE and RESOLVE WE WANT TO SEE ahead of November 2022.

Members of Congress who have promised as Congressmen, or as candidates, to BRING JUSTICE.

Congressional Candidate VERNON JONES promises to add to the set of pending JOE BIDEN impeachment articles.

And he will vote for Donald Trump to be Speaker of the House.
