I think the possibility that these things (including voter suppression, gerrymandering, and much more) are even possible is horribly damaging towards our democracy, but as long as these horrible things are available, I advocate that Democrats consider making use of these tools so as not to bring the proverbial knife to the gunfight.

Just like how campaigns should be publicly funded, but until that goal is reached, I understand the need for campaigns to solicit private donations.

Basically, our system is massively screwed up. It should be fixed. Until it is fixed, Democrats need to fight as hard as they can, with whatever tools are available, just to avoid being overwhelmed.
