I am here to tell you…mark my word: the conservative movement is about to out hustle the left and the middle again. My friends can’t stop giving me a hard time about being on the local news for attending a meeting on redistricting with three people.
Oh, but the real hard time is coming when they wake up one day to find that a focused, determined percent of the population is running everything. We can’t find time to get involved with redistricting but we can watch all of the NBA playoffs—you know the Hawks have gone fishing already.
The next five elections might be decided in the redrawing of the district maps but folks are sleeping. In the future, they might be seeing red…a sea of red with a blue island called Atlanta. At the official redistricting hearing, the GOP dam near took over Albany State University. Oh, the usual Dem leaders were there but the masses need to get off their (you know.) It’s time for some good old fashion rallies about these maps (old school D.J.s and hot fish grease) because after all the fancy nerds did their things last November, GOTV buses saved the day.
As Chuck D and Flava said, “Consider Yourselves Warned.”
