Rewriting the Republican election playbook
By Bill Hansmann

As Rod Serling might have said on “Twilight Zone”: “Imagine if you will, a game of football between two rival teams, teams that have faced off in contests for as long as anyone can remember and who have always fought honorably. At the end of the contest, win or lose,  there was genuine camaraderie between the opposing teams. But now the rules of the game have been perverted by one team. As your team tries to defend their quarterback with traditional blocking techniques, the opposition draws firearms, shoots the blockers, and then riddles the quarterback with bullets.”

This does not sound like a contest I would want to watch, much less participate in, especially if the other side had the guns. It doesn’t sound like the kind of game that either CBS or Fox would want to televise, although Amazon might take a chance with them to bolster ratings. Certainly, any post-game gatherings would cease to occur, as one team would be busy cleaning their weapons while what remained of the other team gathered at the morgue to identify the remains of their teammates.

If this sounds a bit far-fetched, be aware that it is the equivalent of the current election process in the United States. Republicans are content to vote the old-fashioned way, in which voters showed up at polling places on election day, proffered their photo ID, were granted a ballot, and made their selections. They were quite willing to allow the occasional absentee ballot for the sick unable to travel to the polling place. They were also willing to allow the same absentee ballots to be used by those voters who were unavoidably away from their home area on election day, provided these absentee voters provided proof of identity and their inability to vote in person.

"Rewriting the Republican election playbook"

Until the Republicans are willing to come to terms with "the playbook" of The Party's "underground election apparatus", things aren't going to matter. Or go their way.

Because... as long as "the apparatus" remains up-and-running and effective, the Republicans cannot win in such states. The apparatus will nearly always tilt the election to the left's favor.

Some of these states are Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and [it looks like] Arizona, too. Perhaps in at least some of Georgia.

Parts of the apparatus are hidden -- hence "underground" -- but other parts actually are "hiding in plain sight", such as "ranked-choice" voting. Watch for this to be adopted soon in nearly all of the deep blue states.

I was never a Pink Floyd fan, but as each facet of the apparatus is established, it becomes "another brick in the wall" -- which will eventually become impossible for the Republicans to scale... and win.

Alot of this is cleaning up the election rolls and absolutely locking down the registration process. There should be no 52 addresses at 3970 Funkytown Ave that is an abandoned factory in the warehouse district that some strung out homeless guy brings in to the election office.
The Republic is lost.
