Organizing for Action Domain Gaffe

Most of us have heard about the profits that can be made by setting up a Facebook page with a picture of a cute puppy or an injured veteran returning home, and soliciting “likes”. The hook is usually something like “like to support, ignore if you don’t care” or “isn’t he the cutest thing ever?!”  Of course, no one wants to be non-supportive of our returning vets, and almost everyone loves a puppy, so hundreds of thousands of likes are accumulated in a matter of days.

Gerrymandering is a practice of redrawing a district’s boundaries that favor one or more groups of voters and some candidates over others. The process is extremely partisan and has been exploited by both parties for political advantage. The United States is the only advanced democracy in the world where politicians directly participate in the redistricting process. Biased redistricting might not be the only cause of the problems in the U.S. political climate, but it has considerable negative affects. Districts divide states into geographical territories where most of the federal, state and local representatives and legislatives are elected from. Redistricting originally…
