25. Oh, it is not straws. The art of shaving points to win elections is as old as elections.

 

And the Republicans are genius at it. They keep finding more and better ways to do it, some not at all legal too. The only reason they control the US House is fixing the results of elections by gerrymandering.

They need to have this smeared in their faces over and over again. We need to hang them by their undemocratic practices. They need to be known as the party that opposes democracy. They need to be known to Texans as the party that took the vote away from 500,000 plus good voting citizens!

We need pro-active measures to ensure easy registration, such as a national law that registers everyone for Presidential elections. Winning the House in 2014 will make this transformation in voting access a reality. It is time for the pendulum to swing back and cut off their trunks or something at the other end.
