    Gerrymandering is an exercise in power by those in power to maintain their power. It is one of the main reasons that elected officials can pay obeisance to big money without worrying about being voted out of office - that and voter lethargy.

    It is the judiciary that is supposed to provide a safeguard against the political chicanery of gerrymandering, but the judiciary is conspicuously lacking in their responsibility to maintain a functioning democracy.
