THE REPUBLICANS CHANGE COURSE AND NOW DEMAND THE SUPREME COURT HOLD UNCONSTITUTIONAL, THROUGH PUBLIC VOTES,  THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE
 
"The court hears argument Monday in an appeal by Republican lawmakers in Arizona against the state's voter-approved independent redistricting commission for creating the districts of U.S. House members."

Why is it if the people vote to discriminate against people the Republicans do not like, the Supreme Court has no authority to overrule the will of the people, but the second the people vote to take control of congressional redistricting, the Republicans demand the Supreme Court overrule the popular vote of the people?

I would like to say to the credit of the California Republicans they have filed briefs against the position of the Arizona Republicans, but I cannot.  You see in California redistricting is done by a commission, and not the Democratic controlled legislature.  The California Republicans understand that if the Supreme Court agrees with the Arizona Republicans, many of them will be out of a job as the Democratic controlled legislature redistrict Republicans out of office. 

There may be some poetic justice in this.  If the Supreme Court goes along with the Arizona Republicans, it  could mean enough Republicans in California losing office to flip the House of Representatives from being controlled by the Republicans to the Democrats.

Cameron county has a one party system, isn't it great?

Cascos is a Republican

If the State Republicans were not a bunch of nut jobs, it might be easier for them to win in Cameron county.

You know what is worse that a county with only one county wide elected official, the State of Texas with not one statewide elected Democrat

One party systems never work.

A well educated competent Republican challenging Sofie Benavides would get my support.

Cameron county and Brownsville need policy wonks who are going to stay away from social issues and focus in on economic development.

I am tired of promises related to taxes and roads. I want a leader[s] who understand how to make Cameron county into a metroplex.

For me if you can demonstrate how to make us into a metroplex - labels will be meaningless.
