    the whole point of my posting this diary was about having options in case voter ID laws can't be immediately done away with. You have to have a plan B. You have to have moves to consider in case the ideal outcome won't happen for a long time.

    Also, the idea was to try and craft a policy-based response to outrageous behavior that has value on multiple levels. To showcase the abusive behavior, and showcase who is in the wrong and who is in the right, and communicate to low-information voters as much as anything else.

    Your ideas are brilliant. That is exactly what I am talking about.

    I'm frustrated that anybody could think 'forget the whole thing' is a good idea. We can't. Abusive Voter ID laws and voter disenfranchise efforts need to be attacked, confronted, and require novel and new ways of thinking about how to short-circuit the abusive behavior while highlighting who is to blame and who is trying to help.

    I probably wouldn't have responded to the 'forget the whole thing' post as well as you did.

    Thank you for your post.

    It confirms my belief that policy-based pushbacks against abusive Movement Conservative policy is only going to produce good things because when people think about what they would do, you get all sorts of great ideas and you give activists and people in office ways to harness their anger and frustration into ways to make people's lives better as well as fight the Right.
