    The Donkey has a long old history rife with political chicanery. And, no, they don't all do that. If you look up "political machines" in wiki or some such, I bet you cannot find a Repub machine listed. All the notorious dead voters, mystery vote harvesters, vote suppression orgs, etc. I can think of are Dem. Thinking of Huey Long, Cook County, the KKK, Jim Crow, Daley, etc... even the grandpa of them all, the Tammany machine were all Dems. Not just many, not just most... but all. So they have loads of experience how to get this done. They believe in it, and it works. Anyone could see this coming. And not a thing will get done about it.

    “It has been a source of great pain to me to have met with so many among [my] opponents who had not the liberality to distinguish between political and social opposition; who transferred at once to the person, the hatred they bore to his political opinions.” —Thomas Jefferson (1808)

    "Remember the first rule of politics. The ballots don't make the results, the counters make the results. The counters. Keep counting."

    Democracy is 51% of the people taking away the rights of the other 49%.
    There is no justification for taking away individuals' freedom in the guise of public safety.
    Thomas Jefferson
