Rep Heath Shuler of the 11th district of North Carolina has introduced a bill in the House of Representatives that would prohibit the general assembly of individual states from redistricting. This bill mandates an independent commission to oversee what is a constitutionally protected prerogative reserved to the states. We are witnessing another federal power grab, and Heath Shuler is the culprit.
N.C. Freedom reports the following:
Mr. Shuler is introducing legislative that is not only unconstitutional; it is a direct assault on the voting rights of the people. This attempt to eliminate redistricting in the new state general assembly at the federal level is indicative on how corrupt Washington has become. It is a prime example why the people of North Carolina must stand up and defend our state’s rights against federal tyranny. So the question becomes one of purpose: what is the motive for Mr. Shuler to maintain a gerrymandered voting system that will not impact his next election?
Latest Title: To prohibit States from carrying out more than one Congressional redistricting after a decennial census and apportionment, to require States to conduct such redistricting through independent commissions, and for other purposes.
Sponsor: Rep Shuler, Heath [NC-11] (introduced 1/26/2011) Cosponsors (18)
Latest Major Action: 1/26/2011 Referred to House committee. Status: Referred to the House Committee on the Judiciary.
Mike McIntyre (D-NC 7) is co-sponsoring this legislation along with 17 other traitors. I do not use this term lightly but let’s look at the definition of a traitor:
One who betrays one’s country, a cause, or a trust, especially one who commits treason.
These representatives have betrayed the trust of their constituents by trying to maintain a system of voter fraud to win elections.

The North Carolina General Assembly can address this issue by enacting a recall amendment to our state’s constitution through Article XIII.
Our new US House of Representatives can also take action under the Constitution:
Article I, Section 5, Clause 2: Each House may determine the Rules of its Proceedings, punish its Members for disorderly Behaviour, and, with the Concurrence of two thirds, expel a Member.
I think Mr. Shuler’s actions have earned him a place in history as the seventh member of the US House to be expelled by his peers.
If you want a tangible sign of the corruption and abuse by North Carolina Democrats, then take a look at the above map. This has to be one of the worst cases of gerrymandering in the history of the country; and Rep. Heath Shuler wants to protect it.
