Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, April 13, 2019

In 2018, statewide Dems received 54% of all votes, which translated into a superminority of just 36% of state assembly seats due to a blatantly partisan gerrymander. The latest statewide poll shows Wisconsinites leaning far to the left of its Republican-dominated legislature on a wide number of issues.

And yet, the gerrymandered Republican legislature will never let any of these issues see the light of day. Wisconsin is held hostage by a small number of nitwits who only have a job because of a map they paid lawyers millions of dollars to create.

Gop majority of course. You will never be anything until they are in the minority.

But hey, good luck.

#2 Did you even read my post? The GOP is in a majority because of a map, not because voters want them there.

Conservative members of the SC have made decisions designed to insure Republican rule. Pretend we are a democracy all you want, former President Jimmy Carter would disagree with you. We live in an oligarchy. I would never want a single soldier, sailer or airman to die to defend oligarchy.
Our military should go on strike to demand a return to democracy.

Wisconsin is being held hostage by conservatives the way the rest of America is being held hostage by conservatives.

Gerrymandering, electoral college.

Fact is. Conservatives can't win without cheating.

When it comes to cheating and lying, conservatives excel.

Wisconsin is many things, liberal or progressive it's not. Especially Milwaukee and that's as good as it gets.

Talking about freedom and democracy in order to implement policy is not Trump's thing. But when Obama, Bush and Clinton used that excuse routinely, they were lying.
