5. you would be assuming all states would do it.


and if all states would do it, Obama would have won 1/2 of Texas

its not who is in the house in each district, it is who votes in each district

besides, with the coming demographic change soon it will all change

2020 will have another census, then the dems can gerrymander it back
Especially Texas if Castro becomes Gov.

Why the dems ceded all the governorships shows how while he is hated, Karl Rove did a great job for their side stocking all positions from the lowest to the highest

Instead of worrying, better to get a good challenger to each and every person, and have a deep, deep bench (baseball term) in each district in each state

(for instance, if instead of being anonymous, every state had a OWS type run for office you could come up with lots of winners.That is why OWS being anonymous is long term defeatist
Better they all have leaders who then run for office every two years

Working from within can change everything quickly
working from without doesn't change anything

(good example would have been if Cindy Sheehan had run for congress in a district she would have won, not made a silly race against Pelosi.She could have been now a 6 term congresswoman).
