Well, maybe he's trying to say, 'Yes, we might tax you more, but at least we won't use the money to help out New Yorkers and New Jerseyites.' That might be of some consolation.

Gerrymandering is also at the root of Republican-backed proposals in several states to switch to a Maine-style electoral vote apportionment system (by majority of each district, and the other two by the majority in the state).

Well, the Pope just warned about the dangers of unbridled capitalism; presumably the N.O.M.bies, in states where they've lost, will be right on that.

You're acting as if the Founders weren't Divinely inspired, and their view of things the best one from which we have degenerated---they were Men (and I do mean 'men') of Gold, whilst we shew ourselves in our general Natures and in our Particulares to be but of Bronze or of Tin at best.
(If they weren't Divinely inspired, then [for example] Ben Franklin's conception of the nature and origin of property might have been at variance with the Yahweh-endorsed [or 'Yahwendorsed'] fables of Mr Locke.)
So if they wanted a Christian Nation, we would have either stayed a Christian Nation or degenerated---and since they were Divinely inspired, they _must_ without exception have wanted a Christian Nation, and all evidence to the contrary are 'lying facts', just like those tree-rings and those fossils.
