TBAF Bay State Project Develops from Take Back Our Republic Visit

August 23, 2019

Political-Industrial Complex Attacks TBOR for Fight Against Gerrymandering

June 25, 2019

The shrill reaction of critics in the political-industrial complex to Take Back Our Republic daring to challenge the redistricting process in Massachusetts are included in this piece in the Talking Points Memo. They are eerily similar to the reaction of the political-industrial complex to this National Review article a year before Take Back Our Republic was formed, when they expressed the same contempt for our now Executive Director’s decision to run Dave Brat against the sitting Majority Leader Eric Cantor.

In Massachusetts, Take Back Our Republic first wants to register people to vote and hear what they think about gerrymandering, the controversial political maneuver that owes […]

May 30, 2019

A whopping 34 districts must be redrawn in Michigan per a three-judge panel that ruled the gerrymandered congressional and state legislative seats were unconstitutional. Now, the legislature has until August 1 to submit new maps – that would need the approval of the Republican-controlled legislature AND the Democrat governor, Gretchen Whitmer.

TBOR Gerrymandering White Paper

July 30, 2018

Gerrymandering Solutions By TBOR Staff AUBURN, AL- There’s a lot to dislike about gerrymandering. It’s unfair. It protects those in power. It silences and disenfranchises a large number of Americans. The reality: gerrymandering means less choice, more entrenched power, and the idea of “foregone conclusions” that runs counter to the very idea of democracy. Gerrymandering is not new to American politics. In 1788, Patrick Henry used his influence to draw districts that would make life more difficult for his political […]

The Drive Against Gerrymandering

July 23, 2018

The movement to take politics out of setting legislative district boundaries seemed to suffer a grievous, and perhaps even mortal, blow this spring when the Supreme Court passed up three chances to declare partisan gerrymandering unconstitutional. But it turns out that reports of its death are exaggerated. As federal courts dither over how to resolve the issue, activists have begun tackling it state by state at the grassroots. In Michigan, a proposed constitutional amendment to end gerrymandering, written and promoted […]
