Regarding Robert Blanner’s letter, “When did we become so divided?” bemoaning the fact that so many Republicans voted against aid for Superstorm Sandy victims: The situation illustrates what we can expect in the future.
With so many congressional districts gerrymandered, the Republicans will hold control of the House for 10 years. Also, if these same districts continue to be proportioned in the same way, it will signal the death knell of democracy.
The only reasonable solutions to these problems are public financing of elections, term limits and popular vote for president.
