9. Time to organize mass boycotts against seditionist states.

That is one lever that rarely discussed, and IMO effective, as big corps don't want to lose money or be associated with anti-democracy. Repubs can't afford to lose the support of business, and if states lose money due to sedition the residents will look to kick the seditionist politicians out of office.

Lawsuits against various entities - like the NAACP suit, the Dominion suit etc- can also be effective.

Basically there must be a price paid by those who seek to undermine democracy. We can't rely upon a right-wing Supreme Court or a McConnell obstructed Senate (don't see how we get any voting rights bills thru) alone to save us.
