I will not negotiate with terrorists //Mike Luckovich - WaPo

Mike Luckovich - Washington Post 1.7 million more voters chose democrats than Republicans for Congress but thanks to re-districting in Republican dominated states they won and we lost.  Republicans voted earlier (in the states) and more often than we did.
Of course there is voter concentration (southern whites cast tribal votes as do urbanites).
But district representation in Congress has been an American fact since 1842.  Unless a miracle led us to a proportional representation system disparate turnout will produce unrepresentative Congresses like today's.
