CA is realizing significant bi-partisan cooperation in their State Legislature. Credit is given in part to a recent bi-partisan committee that re-did all electoral districts. Would you support this in your home state even if your party lost ground?

My party has no ground to lose in this state. I'm in.

Haha. I know it's tough being a conservative in a blue state right.

I don't really even follow CA politics bc it's so mind-numbingly stupid most of the time.

Yeah I know what you mean. It gets frustrating.

Considering the corrupt Chicago politicians currently hold all the power, I would love such a change.

The democrats have the power here. I do support the principle though.

No question I support the concept regardless of party outcomes(I'm an independent and don't care for partisan politics). But tell me - you live there - while the change is new - do you think the effect is as real as the article states?

Not quite. I think the concept is a great one and should be adopted by all states, but I think a large part of this is more changes in views, although the redistricting absolutely played a role.

Squid boy - I'm not sure where you think we are functioning in a bi-partician way in California. There was some re-districting that happened under a Republican Governor. But currently we have a Dem Gov and a supermajority of Dems in the Senate and
