26. That's some odd reasoning there. I don't understand it
Your mom used the courts to insure that she was treated fairly according to the law, but if the Dems do the same, you seem to think it's inappropriate.

I understand that lawsuits over electoral issues can have the effect of depressing voter's enthusiasm for the electoral process, but I don't think we can make blanket assumptions about this. IMO, it depends on the circumstances surrounding each and every individual lawsuit.
