WE The People find ourselves at an interesting crossroads between accepting that we are deeply mired in the corruption of the Left (only if you took the Red Pill, though) and the distress of “Oh Dear Lord, what are they trying to do now?” Well, thanks to the 2020 Census, the results of which will not be made public until September, 2021, Stacey Abrams and her collaboration of Leftist criminals has set her sights on the redistricting fight that is coming in October, 2021. Currently, we find that she and her donors are quietly spending millions of dollars to make sure that the fix is in for the Democrats and that trouble-makers like Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene can never be re-elected, or even elected going forward, again. At critical issue are districts like MTG’s 14th District (Rome, Calhoun, Dalton) and others that could, as the result of Census results, be split up to allow for an additional Congressional district. Stacey Abrams clearly wants control of that new district–along with the districts involving Savannah, Macon, Atlanta, and Decatur. However, Republicans will likely have the final say in the matter as, according to the Albany Herald, “In Georgia, the majority party in either chamber of the legislature has the upper hand in drafting and passing district maps with redrawn borders. Republicans have enjoyed a majority in both the 180-member House and the 56-member Senate since 2005.” So then, you know what THAT means? It means that WE the People need to email our Senators and Representatives now, before this is a public fight. We need to attend those virtual meetings. We need to make those phone calls. We need to start asking questions and demanding answers about redistricting plans. Click here for a list of Georgia Senators’ email addresses.

The Constitution invites us—
and politics compels us—
to consider redrawing state and local borders.
Redistricting is not limited to just the state of Georgia; it’s going to be a nationwide fight. Michael Anton of The American Conservative has written an informative article about A Democracy Vs. Republic, as well as what redistricting could and will mean for our nation. Read here.
