    Unfortunately this is how the Republicans have set it up.

    Are we talking them systematically dismantling voting rights or the criminal justice system (that was a bipartisan effort)?

    Both really. The Republicans and their long, long history of Jim Crow antics and gerrymandering the vote into their favor is even more egregious. I know the Dems played their part but it was mostly as a supporting role compared to everything the Republicans have done in the name of "integrity" without a hint of irony.

    The Dems who refuse to pass a law fundamental to fair elections because they are concerned about a senate "rule" are either idiots or intentionally opening the door to authoritarian rule. That's it. Period.

    Yeah but 'our archaic and esoteric club rules (that aren't spelled out in the constitution and most states don't have a filibuster) that we've already added over a hundred exceptions for in the past can't be altered and will lead to the apocalypse.'
