    Elections are already rigged — in favor of Republicans. Gerrymandering in the red states and the GOP’s advantage in the Electoral College requires Democrats to overcome about a five to seven percentage point disadvantage just to claw back to even. That’s why Dem voters need to show as much interest in midterm and off-year elections as Republicans do.

    I wish I could believe he was wrong, but then I listen to a Trumplican or Qanon giving “reasons” and it’s hard to believe it isn’t too late. Tiny shred of hope that the crumbs of the REAL GOP can suck off enough principled and rational so-called “Republican” voters to save America. For at least one more election cycle? How many times can Humpty Democracy do his cartwheels on the wall before he falls off?

    It is truly discouraging the levels of ignorance many in the RW have fallen to. COVID denial despite the scientific proof. 2020 election denials despite 60+ court cases and numerous experts in election security from even the RW saying there was very minimal voter fraud. Zero knowledge of economics and what is causing price hikes in energy and other consumer goods. Screaming about their rights being abrogated because for the first time, others are demanding that their rights be observed also.

    Leftist definition of democracy: A place where two wolves and a sheep decide what is for dinner.

    The left complains when our democrat republic works against their policies and then celebrate when it works for their policies. If the supreme court votes 5/4 to call Obamacare “constitutional” then “democracy works!”. But if they vote 6/3 to return abortion law to the states, then “democracy is dead”.

    It is hilarious to watch.

    If the Supreme Court endorses the independent legislature theory this fall and hands control of elections to the state legislatures this fall, it won’t matter who the voters choose in 2024. State legislatures – most of which are controlled by Republicans – will simply choose Republican electors to send to congress to cast the votes. That’s the big danger.

    There are many factors that led to the Trump phenomenon. But one, not often discussed, in the inability of our democracy to address problems like climate change timely. Although checks and balances are essential to our system, the checks, like the many tactics used by Mitch McConnell to delay popular legislation have grown out of proportion. An democracy, such as that that immediately followed the 2017 Russian Revolution, is vulnerable to tyranny (the Bolshevik overthrow) when it cannot address problems efficiently.

    The biggest mistake the US ever made was not taking every member of the Confederate "national government, every one of the their state counterparts, and, at a minimum, every general officer in the treasonous army, and hung them for treason within a month of the insurrection being put down.

    The second biggest was not opening fire with every weapon available to defend the Capital the second the first MAGAT pushed the first cop Jan. 6, ’21.

    I’ve been telling all my GOP friends that with the new laws that ‘increase’ voting security that they are guaranteed to win the election. So much so that they should not even bother to vote because their vote is not needed to win.

    I understand that some Republican officials are refusing to certify the results of the primary elections, so the practice rounds are already under way. They will be in condition to claim that the general elections are fraudulent by November. It’s good to prepare early.

    Of course NOW the Qpublicans are TRULY TERRIFIED that MORE AND MORE States are aligning with ELIMINATING THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE, AND ELECTING THE PRESIDENT STRICTLY BY POPULAR VOTE, which is the way it should be.

    Why is the MOST IMPORTANT ELECTION in the country the ONLY ONE where the LOSER can be “declared” the winner, as happened in 2000, and again in 2016???

    Is Trudeau so stupefyingly ignorant as to think we could be brainwashed to believe that “Jim Crow” is a Republican ideology? Hey Trudeau! You’re either TRULY ignorant of history or you think that WE are & you’re so EVIL you have no shame trying to brainwash us to the LIES that support your Ignorant Leftist Ideology…For those who don’t know: much like the KKK & carpetbaggers & slavery itself, ALL those events & ideologies were creations of the “DEMOCRATIC” party, itself! FOOLS! The Republican Party was specifically formed to fight & abolish slavery & slaveholders, who were DEMOCRATS, every man-jack of ‘em! Republicans gave their lives by the many thousands, trying to unseat southern DEMOCRAT slaveholders & Emancipate their slaves.

    For nearly a century after Reconstruction (1865–1877), the majority of the white South identified with the Democratic Party. Republicans during this time would only control parts of the mountains districts in southern Appalachia and competed for statewide office in the former border states. Before 1948, Southern Democrats believed that their stance on states’ rights and appreciation of traditional southern values, was the defender of the southern way of life. Southern Democrats warned against designs on the part of northern liberals, Republicans (including Southern Republicans), and civil rights activists, whom they denounced as “outside agitators”.

    The adoption of the first civil rights plank by the 1948 convention and President Truman’s Executive Order 9981, which provided for equal treatment and opportunity for African-American military service members, divided the Democratic party’s northern and southern wings. In 1952, the Democratic Party named John Sparkman, a moderate Senator from Alabama, as their vice presidential candidate with the hope of building party loyalty in the South. By the late 1950s, the national Democratic Party again began to embrace the Civil Rights Movement, and the old argument that Southern whites had to vote for Democrats to protect segregation grew weaker. Modernization had brought factories, national businesses and a more diverse culture to cities such as Atlanta, Dallas, Charlotte and Houston. This attracted millions of U.S. migrants from outside the region, including many African Americans to Southern cities. They gave priority to modernization and economic growth, over preservation of the old economic ways.

    After the Civil Rights act of 1964 and The Voting Rights Act of 1965 were passed in Congress, only a small element resisted, led by Democratic governors Lester Maddox of Georgia, and especially George Wallace of Alabama. These populist governors appealed to a less-educated, working-class electorate, that favored the Democratic Party, but also supported segregation. After the Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court case that outlawed segregation in schools in 1954, integration caused enormous controversy in the white South. For this reason, compliance was very slow and was the subject of violent resistance in some areas.

    The Democratic Party no longer acted as the champion of segregation. Newly-enfranchised African American voters began supporting Democratic candidates at the 80-90-percent levels, producing Democratic leaders such as Julian Bond and John Lewis of Georgia, and Barbara Jordan of Texas.

    Many white southerners switched to the Republican Party during the 1960s, most for reasons unrelated to race. The majority of white southerners shared conservative positions on taxes, moral values, and national security. The Democratic Party had increasingly liberal positions rejected by these voters. In addition, the younger generations, who were politically conservative but wealthier and less attached to the Democratic Party, replaced the older generations who remained loyal to the party. The shift to the Republican Party took place slowly and gradually over almost a century.

    Remember that Hillary’s campaign manager started the rumor that Russia interfered in the election. Enough of you believed it to try to impeach him. Despicable. And you want to make fun of Trump for saying the election was rigged. And, By the way, how many prominent Democrats said something similar after he was elected in 2016? Get the log out of your eye, Trudeau.
