Priebus: Republicans in blue states ‘ought to be’ rigging Electoral College

Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus says that conservative lawmakers in blue states like Wisconsin “ought to be looking at” ways to rig the Electoral College system to tilt elections towards Republican candidates in a way that could have allowed presidential candidate Mitt Romney to win.

...

“I think it’s something that a lot of states that have been consistently blue that are fully controlled red ought to be looking at,” the RNC chairman explained, noting that such a system would give state lawmakers “more local control.”

...

“Once again they’re changing the rules because they lost the game – that’s what this boils down to,” Wisconsin state Rep. Jon Richards (D) insisted to the Journal Sentinel.

Yeah, more rigging and cheating is just what our democracy needs!

3. Fucking assholes. People DON'T WANT YOU

Republicans can't seem to get the concept of forced and unwanted intrusion - rape, elections...

At what point do we say they're simply criminals?

7. Their end goal is a right wing dictatorship

They thought they would get one with Romney. They live in a utopian fantasy world where all morality flows from greed. Ideologies rot peoples brains.

6. "We are a nation of laws... until those laws let the other guys win...

...just because they got a majority of the vote. So we Republicans make sure they can't vote, or their votes aren't counted, or that we can jimmy our guys into office anyway."
