Gerrymandering

Gerrymandering
1:17:16 | 2010

Categories: History, Politics

Right now, across the country, our two major political parties are gearing up for a once-a-decade war whose winner will control Congress for the next ten years, and possibly more. There will be battles in every state, and each will be kept carefully hidden from the prying eyes of average voters who only become more disenchanted with their government with each meaningless election.

Democrats and Republicans collude to keep these skirmishes private so that they can maintain total control over the ultimate political weapon: the ability to directly determine the outcome of elections. Why bother stuffing ballots when they can just draw districts? For the first time, GERRYMANDERING exposes the most effective form of manipulating elections short of outright fraud. After the 2010 Census is finished, will you know where your district went?

Hard to judge a film with important content that's not terribly intriguing for a full-feature documentary film.

Good message, but the background music made it difficult to concentrate on what they were saying.

Ridiculous, unnecessary background music. A total disgrace. The film itself is informative and provocative, though.

People need one or two people they could just blame all the country's problems on. Like how many people do you know that blame your senator or house member for something they voted on? Now how many do you know that blame Obama entirely for a law that was mostly congress's fault?

I have been trying to get the public involved in this awful issue since the last census. If we are ever going to get reform in our beloved country, the voting public will have to be actively involved. Your game is a wonderful tool, and the more it is used in colleges and elsewhere, the better chace we have for change. It will not come easily, as all the strings are pulled by the legislators in power after each census. It will only come when public opinion tips towards demanding that we leave gerrymandering to the history books. It is a ludicrous system that makes a mockery of voting. Irma Shainberg Sheon.

My state just redistricted my state rep out of a job and I am NOT happy. I love my rep!

And the Asian lady is wrong - not a monarchy - an oligarchy... ruled by an small, elite group. Disgusting!

WE ARE NOT A DEMOCRACY! We are supposed to be a REPUBLIC! Article 4 section 4. This is just an example of why people are sick of politics!

A representative democracy is one form of what is known as a Republic. I agree though, our "democracy" is not looking very good.

Thank-you for taking the time and effort to make this film. Are not the Democrats and Republicans simply two sides of the same coin?

I think population vote should count on anyone that is voted into office. Gerrymandering should not be legal.
