    so that it is not necessary for them to be competitive.
    They are doing it now and have been working on it for a while.

    Bigoted assholes that they are, they sure do think ahead.

    Just like for years they worked at making liberal a dirty word and promoting the free market as the solution for everything.

    The liberals sat back and ignored those things in the early years and didn't really respond until it was too late.

    Now look at what they quietly did with gerrymandering. They can get completely outvoted in house elections and still come out way ahead in election results. And now they will probably use that gerrymandering along with changing how electoral votes are awarded in key states to take back the white house.

    They only seem to think ahead when it involves misinforming or cheating. Why is that? I would guess because in the end they are primarily motivated by selfishness.

      Partly it's the absolute conviction that they're the sole guardians of the Immutable Cosmic Order.  Liberals actually helped them beat the hippies--why should they be surprised that conservatives are so confident they think they can pull this off??

      The '60s were simply an attempt to get the 21st Century started early; don't mistake an unfulfilled dream for a lost one. A dream has no deadline!
