It's not about who casts the votes. It's about who counts the votes.

Many of us were wrong about 2016. I sure as hell was. One reason is that many of us stupidly assumed that Obama's elections were a sign of permanent demographic changes in America that would inevitably lead to corresponding changes in elections going forward.

It looks like the GOP has a plan for that.

Wielding his never-before-seen-in-America intraparty power, 45 is backing obedient Trumpsters who are running for a specific state office. It could be said that this office could become the second most powerful position in the country: Secretary of State. The person who has the most control over a state's electoral process.

Is it safe to assume that GOP candidates for Secretary of State in swing states will be given huge national support going forward? What would it look like today if obedient Trumpsters were Secretary of State in Arizona, Georgia, Wisconsin, etc.? Evidently the GOP has figured that one out.

The war on democracy is well underway. Sad that there seems to be some "moderate" democrats who are complicit.
When one side is on a jihad and the other isn't, the side with the energy has the advantage.

We are done as a nation if the hetero nuclear family is not improved. To bring all of the social justice and more we have increased taxes in reality to the highest per person in history. We are now giving people with children money every month because of this. More and more people are falling behind in living standards. People are getting paid off by the government to make up the loss in real wages. Housing must collapse and apartment rent must be reduced with it to bring some kilter to affordability to the masses of people. This will mess some people up. But who can forget the real villains of the 2008 debacle. May they burn in hell. Government and their social experiments and tinkering destroys many. Many who played by rules and paid their bills in all ways and on time. We are a godless nation now.

I have no idea what that has to do with the thread. None.

I think the idea of being able to pick their voters appeals to practically every politician.

"war on democracy"?

There is hardly any democracy in the first place. If you actually want democracy, you're going to have to stand up and demand they change the system. Proportional Representation is democracy. FPTP isn't.

I don’t recall your dismay when Soros was doing it for the past decade.

This is typical of the GOP to rig the upcoming election. Whether it is laws to have state apparatchiks replace local election officials or appoint state Secretary of Stare’s to suppress the vote, the GOP has so little faith in their appeal to the electorate that they have to game the system. No wonder so many of them admire Putin.

You have to admit, it's a smart strategy.

When at war, anything is acceptable.

These Pubs attempting to rig the upcoming election should just be honest and admit they want to do away with all democratic institutions in the USA and replace the Constitution with a loyalty pledge to Donald Trump. If they had cojones, they would run on that platform.

Do other authoritarian regimes around the world do that? Nope. They always say they're fighting for the people and the country. And their "god". And there is always an excuse.

It is what you say the GOP stands for. There are people who vote Prog who are Democrats that vote against their interests.

I didn't say any of that. That only happened in your mind. Good gawd.

Soros isn't doing anything big business hasn't been doing for the republicans forever. You just can't fathom why a super-rich political manipulator is not shoving piles of money at your guys.

They'll get better at the deflection stuff with time. This is a relatively new thing.
