Mandating computer-based redistricting is also a must.

We also need to make it possible for the politicians we chose to do what we hired them to do, and fire them if they fail. That's a lot bigger task, so lets' start with fair elections and go from there.

They also watch or read only one side of politics. We all share the blame.

Bravo! Stellar commentary! We all know its true but maybe seeing it in words will help people react instead of accepting this as the new normal. The majority is numb and stunned but better wake up before elections.
