    When the census comes out and there is redistricting.  This is also a presidential year so there will be huge turn out.  That means that Democrats will be out to vote and can REVERSE much of this that year.

    In terms of 2016 it will be much harder.

    President Obama, January 9, 2012: "Change is hard, but it is possible. I've Seen it. I've Lived it."

    •  True, but Dems need to control state (5+ / 0-)

      legislatures in order for that to happen in 2020, which means we need to get started yesterday.

      I'm a Democrat - I believe that government has a positive role to play in the lives of ordinary people.

    •  There's no sign so far of Democrats caring (1+ / 0-)

      There's no sign at all so far that Democrats are paying any more attention than usual — i.e., none unless they live there — to state legislatures and governorships.

      We are, instead, electing to beat our heads against the House in 2014, as if we had any chance of taking it back as things stand.

      I've been yelling about this for a year now, and have written to a variety of Democratic organizations. What I have for my time are a nice set of form letters, suitable for framing, saying that my concerns are blah blah blah have a nice day.
