Response to beachbum bob (Reply #28)

30. All good points, to be sure.

The links posted show how hundreds of thousands were blocked from accessing the ballot. In Wisconsin, alone, more than 200,00 (mostly black and poor whites) were removed from the voting rolls. tRump only won the state by just over 22,000.
There will always be racial tensions to exploit (George Wallace us vs them populism), misinformation to spread (Hello, Faux News!), October surprises (Thanks, Comey!), and random idiots used by bad actors (Hello, Jill Stein!). The real prize has always been in restricting access to the ballot. Shaving a few thousand votes is small potatoes, bob. They successfully restricted millions of people from even voting! Measurably!

We can not take our eyes off the ball. We need to look those Republicons in the face and say," I Know Your Game". Meet them and beat them.
