      Life isn't fair but you should try to leave it fairer than you found it.

      Run the most left-wing, treehugger, humanist, progressive you can find in the Rethug primary (bonus: female, person of color, under 40, GBLTQ).

      Dem voters switch parties en masse to elect the person.

      Due to the fucked-up gerrymandering, the person is elected. Rinse, repeat.

      The sceme will work for representative (and most-if not all state govt peep) elections, but I'm not sure it'll work for President.

      At least with control of the state, gerrymandering can go the way of the DoDo. Maybe.
