Of course. When they were arguing Gerrymandering, didn't they go straight for the argument that "as long as it's not racially motivated, then just doing it to win political advantage is not against the law" ?

Aw, you got "too thirsty" standing in line 5 hours? I guess you didn't want to vote bad enough. MAGA!
Next up for GOP legislation: criminalizing BYO food and water to voting lines and reducing voting machines in all urban areas to one machine per county.

Don't give them any ideas. Besides they'll give them 3 machines per county, but 2 of them will be broken.

So what's the solution? The Dems are going to be forced to get rid of the filibuster to pass a fair voting bill as no QOP senators appear to want fair voting practices in our country, but it's a necessity for our democracy to continue. What's the solution to this QOP-caused mess?

They either get rid of the filibuster and pass it, or the QOP restricts minorities from voting enough to take the House and Senate enough to win both in 2022. They can revise the filibuster to only be waived for bills involving voting rights. That might be enough to appease Manchin/Sinema.

I think that's the appropriate solution here. Is there really any other choice? We need fair voting standards across the board. Sad that some states are so corrupt that the feds would have to step in to do such, but this is why laws and regulations have to be made, because there are always bad actors trying to abuse or destroy the system.

For example, in PA prior to the PA Supreme Court stepping in to reverse decades of abuse by the state Republicans that resulted in absolutely bonkers gerrymandering, the state - which is generally a slight-blue-leaning state - was represented in the HoR by 13 Republicans and 5 Democrats. 13-5 the opposite way !!!! After the PA Supreme Court stepped in to stop that corruption, it went to a 9-9 split....about appropriate given the state's political makeup. Unsurprisingly, the PA Qopers have been crying "foul" because fairness was enforced upon them by the court. Unreal.

If you miss one election, you're "inactive" and must re-register.
I know, right. Sounds about as inconvenient as having to change the password on your computer every couple months.

And ironically, both are for YOUR own security. Crazy shit, I know

Would it be harder for blue voters to re-register than it would be for red voters?

Could be harder. They are probably less likely to have a car.

You don't think Republicans have internal studies to inform them of which changes will benefit them the most?
They definitely do.

Democrats just want everyone to vote.
How dirty of them..
