Gerrymandering is only bad when Republicans do it?<quoted text>
Gov. Rick Scott is slated to win republican reelection. Ricky will bet $Millions upon $Millions that the dysfunctional republican Gerrymandering coupled with Rickys ability to suppress voter turnout with long lines and other tactics for voter suppression. Will result in Low turn out for 2014. That will sell out the state of Florida, to once again suffer the shame of a republican Governor that supports the republicans infamous ideology of inequality to favor the 1%.
Large turnout of voters for midterm elections is to be NOT expected. That would be the only means by which voters could trump all of the corruption that will be advanced by the republicans. Florida has a superior number of Democrats registered, of which approximately a Million will not vote in the up coming 2014 elections.
Here is what republicans and Ricky supports. Wealth distributions;
Percentage of income gains captured by the top 1 percent in the first three years of the economic recovery: 95 %
Percentage income growth since 1967 for the top 5 percent of earners: 88 %
and for the top 20 percent of earners: 70 %
and for middle-income households: 20 %
Average income of top 1 percent:$1.2 million
Average net worth of the top 1 percent:$16.4 million
The share of wealth held by the richest 400 Americans: 1/2
The median household net worth in 2010:$57,000
and in 1983:$73,000
Percentage of the 1 percenters who said they were middle class at heart: 76 %
The total number of Americans living in poverty with incomes of $23,492 for a family of four or $11,720 for an individual: 46.5 million
Unless we the people get a large turn out in 2014 we can only imagine just how much more will the republicans siphon off the wealth and income from the middle class. How much more will the poverty increase?
I've repeatedly said I want a couple of calc guys from MIT to make an unemotional voting map, regardless of political affiliations.
My first Congressman was Gary Ackermann. A psycho-liberal jew from Jamaica, Queens. My district is in western Suffolk, an entire county and about 5 other Congressman away.
Now it's Steve Israel, he is at least from my area, even though I didn't vote for him. I know him personally. We worked together when he was a Town Councilman here.
So when the surrendercrats had the map, my affluent Republican white vote was offset by about 10 generational welfare recipients paid to vote with a carton of menthols.
Liberal hypocrisy knows no bounds. It's why you cry for more student aid, and then jack up the cost of college at double and triple the CPI.
