3. This is not "fear mongering" this says "go on offense" and it also says...
That even as the cases lose, they set negative precedents or political ideas. Congress being able to decide the presidency, again, is mentioned as one. Another is the repeated rulings that voters don't have standing regarding the Constitution (the allegations are deemed true for purposes of assessing standing).

Fear is not part of my experience. I've written chapters in published books on Bush v. Gore and on election law, state and federal, and political theorists of democracy.

I know for some people, they interpret every issue as a question of "Should I worry about this, or not?" WOrry and fear are useless. I'm just providing information so people can turn these cases into a benefit instead of just ignoring or laughing at them.
