If Democrats win the House in 2020, should they gerrymander Congressional districts?

I came up with an algorithm about how bad to be in any society:

I am a huge proponent of the idea that if everyone is breaking a law, then you should join in and break it.

I am also a huge proponent of the idea that if you're among the first to break a rule, you are scum and need to be disciplined.

I am furthermore a proponent of the idea that if there is a non-rule-breaking way to counteract the cheating, then do that instead.

According to this algorithm, Dems should do it too if Reps are unpunished for it.

The definition of Gerrymander is to manipulate the boundaries of (an electoral constituency) so as to favor one party or class.

So who first decided where the boundaries of election districts would be? Those officials and politicians in charge at the time, that's who.

Are you saying that those boundaries are written in stone for all time?

The people should decide if they want to change it when voting.

The Supreme court will be addressing the issue.

I thought the Left was big on calling the Constitution a living document that could change with the time? Why not boundaries?

When it comes to truly barbaric things, the GOP is not so inhuman to support something just because the other side does it.

The Democrat Party supports No Restriction abortions of healthy viable babies. Why is it Conservatives do not say we will also support the inhumanity.

There is such a thing as right and wrong, and people grounded in humanity understand when to say no.

Districts need to be undone, and made into regular areas that make sense geographically, and laws need to be put into place preventing this bullshit anti-democratic nonsense.

Go for it. Dems pulled out the nuclear option in 2013. It backfired when Trump became President and then used it in 2017.

Dems created a culture called the "metoo" movement. And then Dems began falling left and right like a house of cards for sexual allegations.

Liberal areas look the other way on illegal aliens and crime...and are then overrun by gang violence to the point that Chicago "needs U.N. soldiers to police it".

Dems went on an all out assault to try and out Donald Trump. Now we see that the Department of Justice, Hillary, and the FBI all were in collusion together and corrupt to the core.

The lib media lied through it's teeth, smeared people, and supressed news for decades, and is now labeled as? "Fake news".

Hollywood and the media went full assault on Trump. Now half of their personalities are in the frying pan.

Karma has an interesting way of doing what karma does...

Drawing Congressional districts is strictly up to each individual state. The House has absolutely nothing to do with it.

Hello f,

I think you’re right. It’s state legislatures that have to be won.
