2. Kick...

Very disturbing especially if it only happens in blue states.

3. Yes, this is serious. We must federalize the elections which affect the nation. Don't know how....

....that can be done, though.

4. Their approach might work for two presidential elections at most

Yes, two terms with a republican president is bad enough. But I don't see how US voters will accept presidents who consistently lose the popular vote by millions, yet win the electoral votes and thereby the presidency.

6. Oh, Only Two Elections?

In eight years of Republican rule, we will easily see a Supreme Court packed with Alitos and Scalias (about a 7-2 conservative majority), the dismantling of Medicare, the phase out of Social Security, and NOTHING being done to control skyrocketing costs of health care.

We have to defeat this NOW. I can hear their talking points already: "Oh, voters in rural areas deserve to be heard also. They shouldn't be forced to submit to the tyranny of the majority in the cities where all the MONEY is....blah-blah-blah..."

Once these states enact this, the ONLY way to repeal it is to gain control of both the governorship AND both houses of the state legislatures...not likely since the Rethugs redrew the district lines to make sure that rural conservative areas are overrepresented.

8. I agree with the op. We need OFA and other organizations to get on the attack and mobilize us.
