The GOP in a short video.

This. Dems keep waiting for the refs to step in, but the only way this ends is by destroying the advantage of behaving this way. Dems need to use every procedural tool to fight back, gerrymander, pack the courts, bring in new states, etc.

The GOP wants to create an apartheid state, Dems can't be primarily worried about fairness.

I'm becoming concerned that you guys are basically past the point of no return with respect to democracy. I will actually be shocked if Trump isn't President a year from now, and so long as he manages to somehow stay healthy it won't surprise me if he's still your President 5 years from now either

Agreed, but tough to win when it is set up for you not to. If Milwaukee has 5 polling places in a city that large, how exactly do you win in November? Other states can follow suit and just close polling stations in areas that are not beneficial.

Stop looking at America as a democracy of any sort. We're not much better than Venezuela or other banana republics when it comes to holding free elections.

Strangely enough, Madison managed to have 66.

And Waukesha only had one.

Also, Robin Vos is the most punchable face in Wisconsin politics.

About time. I'm sure the Wisconsin shit show convinced everyone that trying to fight an unwinnable primary wasn't smart.

I was fine with Bernie staying in for as long as he needed to. Not thrilled really with Biden as the nominee over a host of younger Democrats, but I think in his own way Sanders would have been a leftist Trump. I just hope he calls on his supporters to not stay home on Election Day and to vote for Biden not Trump.
