This is actually what America would look like without gerrymandering

YES! This is actually what the  American voter base would look like without crackpot GOP gerrymandering, peeps

In his State of the Union speech, President Obama called on lawmakers and the public to take a number of steps "to change the system to reflect our better selves" for "a better politics." The top item on that list was to end partisan gerrymandering: "we have to end the practice of drawing our congressional districts so that politicians can pick their voters, and not the other way around," Obama said.

In most states, state legislatures draw the district boundaries that determine how many delegates the state sends to the U.S. Congress, as well as the general partisan make-up of that delegation. State legislatures are partisan beasts, and if one party is in control of the process they can draw boundaries to give themselves a numeric advantage over their opponents in Congress. This process is called gerrymandering.

This is a good read, wethinks, people:
YES! This is actually what the American voterbase would look like without crackpot GOP gerrymandering, peeps.

Write it down do you won't forget it, peeps!
