Gerrymandering. That is why where the right wing conservative, Tom Emmer, serves a district that is shaped like a horseshoe, going from the west of Mpls/StP around the north to the Wisconsin border. My state representative in Washington. At least us Dems get to follow in the Fourth of July parades, holding paddles, and chanting "Save the Boundary Waters"! Rep Emmer is a known jerk to "common" people in his district, and a known suck up to the real estate agents, bankers, and bankruptcy lawyers.  My grandfather had a signal that he used to warn others about the grift. He would just rub his fingers together, as a gesture, like "dirty money", and flick his fingers at the the ground, with an expression of distaste. I am proud that my immigrant English and Finnish forbearers worked hard to help improve the lives of others in their communities, and admire and respect those of other cultures, who simply are trying for a better life. Listening to the songs and watching dancing, the children to the elderly, celebrating, it hurts, literally, I feel physical pain, to think that humans want to hurt other humans.
