More Thought Questions

Filed under: Politics, Questions — Jared @ 11:30 am

I think I might pose a semi-rhetorical thought quesiton(s) regularly; I got an interesting answer from Matt on my last one. Here is the question for today:

Why is it that in most states the state Congress is responsible for redrawing congressional district lines? Who came up with that idea? Did they not see the inherently corrupt nature of such an arrangement?

  3. Jaded answer: because there’s too much money in corruption, so the government only tries to avoid appearing corrupt.

  4. Yeah, but the founders went to so much effort in what seems to be an attempt to reduce corruption, and harness what corruption we can’t reduce. This would have been simple to add to either the judicial or executive’s powers; why not have the judicial branch form and oversee a group to do it?
