I’m trying to imagine the mass freakout at Fox and Drudge were the Democrats to make such a blatantly political change in a state won by a Republican just two months ago.

No kidding. Under the current plan by the GOP state legislature, Romney would have gotten 9 of Virginia’s electoral votes and Obama would have gotten 4 despite the fact that Obama won the state by four percent. This is a blatant attempt by Republican legislatures to rig it in their favor and unfortunately I don’t see anyway to prevent it from happening because it is technically legal albeit real slimy.

It’s easier to rig the elections than drop racism from their party platform. By rigging the elections they no longer have to worry about the changing demographic of this country.

TNC comments:

To see the only other major political party in the country effectively giving up on convincing voters, and instead embarking on a strategy of disenfranchisement is bad sign for American democracy. There is nothing gleeful in this.

I’m not surprised. The GOP as currently constituted are revolutionaries and so regard anything that will allow them to get and keep power as the proper thing to do.

They won’t stop until the U.S. is under their complete control forever.

Tuffs Not Enuff PageThe tools of economics, science and law applied to well-known public policy issues. Where the Alt-Right and other interests sell doubt, we do what we can to construct sharp problem definitions and reach equally sharp conclusions. Evidence matters.
