Statistically, our individual political leanings are so strong that we will only vote for our own, be that Republican or Democrat. This dynamic has led to voting districts that are set in stone.
I did a Wiki-search on my state’s 12 congressional members and found that the majority of them are just average people.
Each voting district has a population of roughly 700,000 people Of those 700,000 people there is a tiny handful who are actually extraordinary. Let’s replace our average representative with an extraordinary one.
The cornerstone of the Formula is acknowledgment of the make up of each party. In every case the constituency, the average representative, and their extraordinary replacement will be either Republican or Democrat. This isn’t about flipping districts, it’s about saving hundreds of billions of dollars through creativity and expectations of efficiency. Status quo is simply not acceptable and this Formula is a good starting point.
