THERE ARE A FEW REPUBLICAN NEVER TRUMPERS. NOW NAME SOME REPUBLICAN NEVER SUPPRESSORS.

Yes, there are Republicans who oppose Donald Trump's assault on democracy. But how many of these Republicans -- how many Republicans anywhere -- oppose the assault on democracy in GOP-run state legislatures, and in the courts?

snip//

There's no Liz Cheney or Adam Kinzinger for legalized suppression of the Democratic vote -- no Republican in D.C. has a problem with this, and objectors in the states are rare. As I keep telling you, all Republicans oppose democracy, but "mainstream" Republicans want to tilt democracy in the GOP's favor in ways that maintain the appearance of legitimacy. S

So they won't say anything about these suppression laws (or they'll express support for them, as Cheney did in May after the Georgia law passed), and they won't object in the future when GOP-run states purge voter rolls of Democrats, close precincts in Democratic strongholds, and close motor vehicle offices in areas where Democrats need to obtain photo IDs for voting.

Opposing Trump is good, but it's not the same as favoring democracy. No nationally prominent Republican appears to be genuinely in favor of fair elections.

1. Repukes all know this: they MUST cheat in order to win

If cheating includes voter suppression, they're fine with it.

We should never turn our backs on them for one minute. Never!

2. Conversely, how many Democrats would favor laws making it tougher for Republicans to vote?

My guess is such a plan wouldn't even occur to a Democrat.

Democrats and Republicans have totally different values.

There is a reason people like Putin put their support behind Republicans and not Democrats.
