    Iím sure one of our conservative friends will by to explain how not passing out water is going to stop Republicans from killing their wives and taking their votes.

    Republican Voter Suppression Efforts

    Blows my mind how much rich people spend on politicians (government) for the purpose of keeping government (politicians) out of their money.

    They don't care about being the "good guys", they just want to stay in power, no matter the cost. Also, I don't know why anyone would be surprised or shocked by this, given all that we've seen from the GOP over the past decade. And, yeah, fixing (rigging) the system so that Democrats need to win the popular vote by a very unrealistic 15% just to win a bare majority of the state legislature will pretty much be the template for other GOP-controlled states. The Mississippi GOP has effectively turned themselves into a permanent majority party, and the Democrats into a permanent minority, no matter how many times the Democrats win the popular vote for state legislature. And no doubt they're quite proud of themselves for doing so. And if the GOP in NC ever wins back the governorship and a majority of the State Supreme Court, they'll do the exact same thing here, and nothing will be able to stop them.

Initiatives and referendums were created in the Progressive Era as a way for voters to bypass corrupt, business-dominated, or reactionary state governments and pass progressive laws. So Republicans are now busily rolling back advances that were made over a century ago. They truly are a "back to the future" party now. Gilded Age, here we come!

    Republicans get away with it. Florida keeps passing progressive amendments with 60% of the vote. But they also vote for Florida Republicans who dramatically water them down.

    Itís always interesting to me that Republicans like to claim that their party and policies are ideologically diverse. She kept claiming the election laws are a state by state effort when itís a bunch of states passing very similar laws at the same time under the same pretext.

    Very interesting that she brought up the 2000 election unprompted (there could have been edits).
