  •  dirty tricks (none)
    I don't think dirty tricks should ever be a moot point.  I'm furious.  Political parties and their ideologies are not part of our country's founding documents, but the right to vote is.  You play games with voting, you belong in jail or worse.  This goes to the very deepest source of power and government in the US - the vote.  Republican operatives consistently place the fundamental rules of democracy below their lust for power.  This gaming is regularly given a pass by the Coin-Op Media, show-pony Christians and even world-weary dems.  Make no mistake: this is treasonous.

    Want to restore faith in American Democracy?  Prosecute every last infraction of a single American's right to vote, whether GOP or Dem sourced.

      No, there's no right to vote in the U.S. Constitution.  That's one
      reason to eliminate the Electoral College and replace it with
      a popular vote system.
