Republican election fraud case in New York State
Republicans who won’t accept primary losses are a preview of the future
Trump will never accept his 2020 loss. This has inspired other Republicans in primaries and will carry over to general elections. They are also refusing to count votes, another tactic they could use to sabotage fair elections.
Right-wing extremist Wisconsin Supreme Court
How can we expect fair elections when they won’t accept the results of one?
More on the terrible Independent State Legislature theory
One lesson from the Democratic failure to respond to the decision to overturn Roe v. Wade
It’s pathetic that the Democratic Party didn’t have a response ready when the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. There were months, even years to prepare for this.
We should learn from this error and be better prepared for the next Supreme Court sessions. It is possible (I would say probable) that the Supreme Court will endorse the extremist Independent State Legislatures theory. Republican legislatures can bypass the will of voters and the impact of their state courts and make electoral decisions that benefit their candidates.
What can be done to prevent this decision? We need much more publicity now on how bad it would be.
What can be done to blunt the impact if the Court does support the theory?
We should start thinking about this now, not wait until the Court acts. Obviously, there is no action to extreme for the current group of justices so we must prepare for the worst.
Next Supreme Court term could support the terrible independent state legislature theory
The radical independent state legislature theory gives extreme control of elections to states. The Supreme Court (R) has agreed to hear a case about it in the next term. They could make yet another terrible decision.
