Jim Crow is alive and well in the evil heart of the Republican party

I used to think that the current administration represented the evil fringe of the Republican party, but with the RNC's full court press to criminally disenfranchise voters, I am now convinced that the mainstream party leaders are principally evil.

It is not enough to have the secretary of state in Florida come up with another "felon list" to deny thousands of eligible minority voters the right to vote. It was not even enough to hire con men to portray voter registration drive employees, and instead illegally tear up democrat registrations, to further illegally deny the vote to eligible Americans. Now the RNC has hired thousands of thugs to disrupt voting in minority districts in Ohio with voter challenges.

It is imperative for the future of freedom and democracy that these evil criminals do not succeed. Which is why I exhort all readers of Boring Diatribe to help vote the rascals out, and further I implore the next non-evil administration to prosecute these lawless opponents of freedom and democracy to the fullest extent of the law.

*How* does voting people out help, when elections are rigged, influenced, digitally manipulated, and judicially perverted? It sounds on the surface that you're saying, Overthrow this sham . . . by participating in this sham that, uh, doesn't reflect the actual voting anyway.

Well I may be insufficiently cynical, but I still believe that most Americans are good and just (unlike republican operatives) so most should vote against the current evil administration. Assuming enough do, then even with the criminal anti-freedom and anti-democracy measures taken by the RNC the rascals should still be voted out. If they've perverted the voting enough that the electorate cannot displace them, then we already live in a dictatorship and just don't realize it. I fervently hope we are not there yet.

Or...the Repubs are busy disenfranchising people of color (here's another example), so it falls to us who are fortunate enough not to be targeted to stand up for the rights of those others. By voting the bastards out.

Because if we don't stand for those others, who will stand for us?
