Dems in blue states

need to stop playing nice. Hard truth: White people in rural and suburban areas don't give a flying fuck about ANY issues that don't materially affect them.

So it's time we make voter suppression part of THEIR reality.

It's time people in the blue states start doing to red counties what red states do in blue counties. Happening to "forget" to deliver voting machines. Only assigning like one poll worker to a polling place for the sole purpose of creating long long long lines. Closing down most polling places for BS reasons.

And when there's a big stink about it, publicly say that it will continue until this bullshit stops in minority communities.

2. I agree. But...

The argument from Dems is that "then we become just like them."

Well...yeah. How has it worked out for us by being just like US? We get our ass kicked every time. The bully in the school yard always takes your lunch until you stand up and fight back. That doesn't mean you're just like the bully, it shows the other bullies that you will stand your ground and are prepared to take them on.

7. Hear, Hear!

Bullies never stand down until you stand up to them. As long as we continue to turn the other cheek, they will continue to push the envelope. I'm sorry, but we have to get tough for the greater good.

3. I already don't give a flying fuck about the red states.

I grew up in a deep red state, and I can't make ANY excuses for the morons who run it. They are ALL deplorable.

4. We in CA play fair. We have citizens draw

 

the districts

Cities that have large populations of one race in a district have to break up into more even representation.
