That is a given. GOPs know they can't win free and fair elections above local level. Entrenched power gives them tools to gerrymander, disenfranchise, and suppress, their only means to retain unjust power. How long will US citizens submit to rule by losers?

Putin's Puppy POTUS, Moscow Mitch, and the GOP Senate are stacking federal courts with unqualified sycophants bound to maintain GOP control, no matter what, for generations. Can a rotten judiciary save kakistocracy?

Another stage of suppression: more violence against candidates, dissidents, bystanders, people of color or perceived difference, anyone without a MAGA hat, et al. RNC and local GOP officials will deny incitement despite coded language heard, understood, and acted upon. "Kill A Liberal" won't just be on truck mudflaps.

Eisenhower said, "If a political party does not... advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power." Ike nailed-em. When will they go the way of Whigs?
