How sick is that?

Without gerrymandering, Reps. Tim Moffitt, Chuck McGrady and their pals in Raleigh could not engage in their vindictive war on the institutions of Asheville. Neither of these guys really listen to the citizens of Asheville because gerrymandering ensures they don't have to. How sick is that?

They represent us but they seem to hate us; they represent us but they seem determined to take us down a peg or two. What do you call a government in which the wishes of the people are systematically ignored? Hint: It isn't democracy.
