1. The problem is, the GOP gerrymanders, cheats, and steals.

The news media obliges by issuing "adjusted" exit polls modified to reflect the doctored totals.

8. Yep, that's why election results don't match these ratios. Not by a long shot.

Well... That, and people need to VOTE each and every time there's an election for ANYTHING in their community!

4. When most here are proud to declare themselves Democrats,

then we'll know the right-wing demonizers are finally losing ground.

For far too long, people have shrunk from what the GOP is doing without understanding that there is a genuinely principled alternative fighting to protect our democracy, not just an...alternative.
