    Do everything to manipulate the system in favor of Democrats! The GOP is way too radical, uncompromising and dangerously destructive to do otherwise.

    +++ The law is a weapon used to bludgeon us peasants into submission. It is not to be applied to the monied elite.

    •  I think you have to stand for Democracy (0+ / 0-)

      Otherwise both sides spiral down that hole, don't respect it and free and fair elections are damaged.
      The economy can get bad and people want a change, and boom, the dumb assess are back in power and they change it all back in favour of them. What I had in mind was an amendment to the state constitution on outlawing gerrymandering so no side can manipulate it. This way if there is a recession and Dems lose the state, the republican hands are tied. We know they will screw up shortly and be thrown out. I think that is better than each side ripping everything up depending on who has the legislature.
