Politicians have been trying to Gerrymander voting districts since the U.S. Census began in 1790 and one of America’s founding fathers, Elbridge Gerry, did it.
But, the big government party has already won. The significant census question is whether or not they will include a question about citizenship or foreign born. That question has been in several previous censuses/censi. But, for the purposes of voting power, that question has already been decided.
On a case brought by a Texan and Texas, SCOTUS already ruled (totally wrong IMHO) that voting districts shall be apportioned by the total number of residents, not based on the total number of citizens or voters. In other words, unless this SCOTUS ruling is challenged and overturned, a citizen’s vote in his country can be and are overcome by non-citizens.
“Interestingly, the Court limited its ruling to rejecting the request to require Texas to using voting population to draw the maps, and stating that using total population was permissible under the Equal Protection Clause and the “one person, one vote” principle (as well as a widespread and long-accepted practice, as noted above).”
“Theoretically, this leaves the door open for a state to use voting population, but the Court did not resolve how they would rule. The State of Texas had argued that the Court should grant explicit permission to use voting population, and the Obama administration had wanted total population to be mandated, but the Court was persuaded by neither. Instead, the Court noted that they could not and would not rule on the issue of using voting population until they were presented with an actual case of a state using such a plan.”
“The end result is that states like Texas face a choice: they have been granted a green light to use total population to draw their state legislative districts, and may continue doing so. If they wish to switch to a voting population method, they will most likely face years of new litigation, as the stakes are high for both sides on this issue and the Court has deliberately refused to rule until they have an actual plan to review.” (1)
How? States with the largest total population (regardless of citizenship) are apportioned the largest number of U.S. Representatives in Congress and the largest number of Electors in the all important Electoral College. The number of Electors equals the number of U.S. Representatives. Thus states that promote sanctuary policies for illegal aliens in fact receive more Congressmen and more votes for U.S. President in the Electoral College. There is no need for illegal aliens to vote in general elections, the oligarchs who enslave them vote for them.
States that only use voting population have fewer U.S. Representatives in Congress and fewer Electors in the Electoral College. They lose the close votes in Congress and for President. Thus the states, cities, counties are in a race to welcome illegal aliens.
Instead, states should be in a competitive race against each other to determine who can provide the most efficient government and highest quality of services and life for their citizens. But the states are not doing that. Like Chancelor Angela Merkel in Germany, their arms are open for aliens and refugees… and they are hugely reinforced by many major corporations who pay into political campaigns to keep cheap and cheaper labor flowing.
Very short term thinking which, if not reversed, will result in the loss of American society and culture, including loss of law and legal tradition, and ultimately loss of sovereignty/liberty. The so-called “progressive” dilution of the idea that is America is fully underway.
