Yeah, how well is this going to work if every ten years you wind up in a different district, or the guy/gal you like is suddenly living in a different district and not your rep any longer?

Which already happens every 10 years, minimum, to some people, and more often in places where the courts rule unconstitutional gerrymandering and require more changes between census'.

So what is your point? That it can never be done? It is already being done, it's just being done in partisan fashion, where some states have demonstrated a way to do it in un-partisan fashion with independent commissions.
