Good post, Anthony. Partisan gerrymanders are bad for democracy, no matter which party benefits or loses. As a Democrat, I would gladly seen an end to such unfair and imbalanced redistricting, even at the cost of a short-term political advantage for my party.

I agree 100%, Steve. I hope the Supreme Court rules for the plaintiffs in both cases. Thanks for your comment!

One party rule is bad for rural/semi-rural Illinois ( all GOP) and bad for Metro East/Cook County (All Dems). Concentrated power is not only undemocratic, but leads to unbalanced public policy and outcomes.

Anthony Gaughan

I agree that competition is healthy for democracy.
