    ..which could be taken a good sign all this "serious concern" coming from the right lately as a signal that the republicans, at least a scattered few who can see longer term, know that tight knit gerrymandered districts are primarying themselves to death.

    But let us Dems show otherwise - the truth at the core of all republicans; teabag & old guard elite

     This is still the foundation to the republican platform today - Robert's court ruling that gutted the VRA and the GOP reaction proves that.

     A Blast from the past:

    ALEC founding member  Paul  Weyrich beyond voter suppression stopping voting altogether
    One of the founder of the modern conservative movement – Reagan era
    Which really hasn't changed unless one counts MSM crafted rhetoric as change.

    If anything desperation at the national level has forced the GOP to erect voter suppression firewalls where they can - at the state level on down

    We shoudn't wait. Don't not leave them alone and comfortable. Weaken them with aggressive GOTV aimed at Dem voters who might be thinking 'what's the point, we're surrounded by RED?

    Weaken the GOP where they think they can't be touched  - imo

    50 state strategy to dig them out of their corrupt holdouts

    My idea for an ad campaign would sound like this - with enough $bucks that is:

    Republicans don't want you to vote if your not rich - that could appeal to all people, especially those (teabags too) who hate that wall street fat cats stole our money, and they'll do it again if you vote for republicans

    Nice round - up theme this week MB

    •  So it's really good news that this.. (0+ / 0-)

      republican; Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted (R)  got his corrupt ass kicked

      A federal judge in Ohio has made permanent a ruling that voters who are misdirected to incorrect polling places will still have their votes counted, even if they vote in the "wrong" location.

      ...That injunction is now permanent.

      Yeah - progress :)
