North Carolina is an oligarchy disguised as a representative democracy. Gerrymandering gives the illusion that the people in control have popular support. The party drawing the map can design the districts so that their party will almost always win, even if fewer people vote for them. The NC legislature has rigged the game so that they will always win, no matter how much North Carolina looses.
What do you think North Carolina’s districts looks like?
