We continue to be told that the evil Republicans enacted voting reform to cripple Democrats. The evil Democrats, in turn, had enacted laws during their lengthy reign to enable their kind to cheat in elections. A similar argument goes for redistricting. People cry for a nonpartisan map because they expect anybody sly enough to get elected to blindly swindle more power for his party. In other words, if we are to believe our propaganda, since one must be unjust to gain political office, anybody declaring a political party is unfit.
