I think districts are necessary

Not necessary at the federal level for sure. My congresscritter is in DC not down the road.

Right. After I posted that I realized I should've specified 'at the state level'. The Fed gov't is WAY too big & intrusive. Didn't that used to be anathema to Republicans? I'm beginning to think Pat Buchanan is the only real Republican left standing.

The current situation puts the lie to the 'All politics is local' myth.



Pass a constitutional amendment eliminating congressional districts. All candidates for the House run at large with preference voting.
