>The current power of the Republican party stems from the gerrymandered districts.

Democrats ran North Carolina for over 100 years and gerrymandered their districts to their advantage. It was in this environment that the Republican party came to power in 2010.

Like in Pulp Fiction when Mr. Wolf drives away in the Lotus in the end. They didn't record the Lotus, they added sound later. Problem is that sound was of constant straight-line acceleration while the video had the car accelerating, slowing, turning a corner, and re-accelerating.

And that can't happen until you get rid of the current SCOTUS

Or, you know, go the proper way and just change the Constitution. They didn't decide that way because they want an oligarchy, they did it because, OMG!, they decided based on what the Constitution actually says. That doesn't change based on the circumstances. I don't like the results of the decision either, but it's a solid one based in fact, not the dreams of the court's left wing. If somebody found a huge loophole, then we modify the Constitution to fix it. We don't just interpret the problem away, because that means the Constitution's protections are meaningless.
