Talking Points Memo: Video: "VA Democratic Legislature Calls Redistricting Trick Plantation Politics"
Here's one example of why we need a national redistricting system not run by the Federal Government. But some type of commission thats run by a coalition of Democrats, Republicans and Independents. All Bi Partisan in nature and that each state should have a system like this that would have to approve. Redistricting laws before they could be approved by state legislatures and singed into law by governors. Because right now the whole point of redistricting by both sides is so their party can win more seats in the US House of Representatives. And in the state legislature House and Senate, rather then what's the most just system to have. That represents all political factions and political parties fairly. And with a new system like this to go along with full disclosure of all campaign financing. We would end up with more competitive elections in this country when it comes to the US House but also in state legislatures. Instead of just the party in power and the incumbents having most of the advantage just because they are in power.
