  •  The EC coup attempts now going on are worrysome (1+ / 0-)

    and something every progressive, Democrat, really just conscientious citizen needs to track and fight. It is very clearly a coordinated attempt to neutralize us "urban voters" regardless of skin color. The sponsor of Virginia's Senate bill is blatant about that:

    The last election, constituents were concerned that it didn’t matter what they did, that more densely populated areas were going to outvote them
    Yeah, welcome to some semblance of democracy and not plutocracy and plantation society.

    My hope is that if these things get through they will face successful Baker v. Carr, Reynolds v. Sims and Wesberry v. Sanders (all "one-man-one-vote" precedents) challenges. As a last resort, all us (3/5 of a voter in that new Ole Virginny) diluted majorities need to ensure no Republican can ever win a statewide office vote again. That is a justified last ditch retaliation for what is indeed an attempted coup by a minority to hang onto undue power.

    The only foes that threaten America are the enemies at home, and those are ignorance, superstition, and incompetence. [Elbert Hubbard]
