    It's who counts the votes.


    The GOP is not even going to look at the results, they are simply going to declare their candidates as the winner. We have to be ready for that. Only one side is doing democracy anymore.

    No one remaining connected to the Republican party cares about democratic institutions like elections. From their Members to their judges to their votes, they will simply smash and grab. We have to be ready to simply say no, and stop them.

      Tl;dr: The GOP really is the dog that caught the car with Dobbs, and it's actually shifted the electorate left.

        Over/under on the number of republican losers who declare victory in November? My guess is at least 2/3rds of them will not officially concede, and at least 50% will outright declare themselves the winner and allege massive voter fraud by democrats.

              So what? They can declare whatever they want, they wont hold the office. Trump declared victory how is his second term going?

                You're ignoring all the GQP election fraud loyalists they've been installing in AG and election official offices in states all over the country.

                If not for a few old school Republican party officials in like Arizona, Michigan, and Georgia, who were unwilling to take that final step, we very well might have trump as president still. And those people aren't gonna be there next time. Instead, it will be people perfectly willing to go along with the steal.

                      The corpses of the guys who built the Republican Derp Machine -- Bill Buckley, Lee Atwater, Irving Kristol, Rich Lowry, Rush Limbaugh, Roger Ailes -- are whirling in their graves. THE WHOLE POINT was to keep the issue as a bloody shirt forever so the derps would keep mashing the feeder bar. The last thing on earth they wanted to do was remove a fundamental right from 51% of the population. Poor Karl Rove, he lived to see it.

                      Angry Sky Daddy only works for the 25% most mentally deficient humans. The rest actually think straight, and this is lethal to them. The cons don't realize what they have done. They can keep cheating and stealing and lying but the underlying landscape has slipped from 45-55 to 40-60, and that's probably too much to suppress unless you literally end elections.

                      • If only your last paragraph was true. The Senate, gerrymandering (GOP has more opportunities than Dems and they clearly take advantage), plus the Electoral College will take your 60/40 derp-free/derp ratio and will, at worst, equalize it for derps.

                          As long as we can keep elections actually happening in this country, we will find our way out without bloodshed. In the end, despite my misgivings about many parts of the American experiment, I do believe our democracy can fix its own worst problems. We overthrew the yoke of the Plutes once before. We rid the Democratic party of the Dixiecrats. We can makes things better. We will always be fighting fascists, but we have always fought them. Our institutions are the right tools, we just need the right people to wield them. And while Dems born between roughly 1935 and 1985 failed miserably, Dems born since 1985 seem to have grasped the essentially facts that (1) we are in a fight to the death with the Right, and (2) the gentle and gentile NYT method of conducting that fight is a disaster. We are, slowly and after a half century of pain, finally shedding the contented smirk of the Center for the serious commitment of the Left.

                            You can only gerrymander so much and the truth is some issues offset the gerrymander anyways. Abortion appears to be one of those issues because what was once thought to be a hail mary chance to hold both houses come November is now almost even money. (and my prediction for the Senate is now the betting favorite because of the idiots the GOP put up) Women exist even in the most gerrymandered districts which is why the GOP is having issues.

                            That could all change in a week, but if it holds and Pelosi still rules the House then we might have just saved this country. Think how much fun Biden will have with 2 years of little to no obstruction...

                              Its comical and curious that so many people are untethered to reality, that's the so what. I'm pretty sure I realize trump is not currently enjoying a second term as president.

                              • The so what is stuff like January 6. That's just a preview. Now imagine state houses in purple states.

                                These morons are armed and a lot of people are going to die next time. The Right is always one demagogue away from a riot and now the entire GOP is one big conspiracy machine, and the leadership doesn't care because they've got their jets fueled and ready for Ibiza, Saint Barths, or Gstaad.
