I have never labelled anyone's post "dumb" before and I won't start now. However, I would suggest you take a step back and be honest with yourself. There is no
both sides argument to be made here. Whatever hatred Democrats hold, the GOP can say, "here, hold my beer".

And, while it is certainly an issue - around the globe, not just in the US - the economy will survive. What should be higher on American voters' radar is the integrity of elections. I said it before - this is an existential

Too many Republicans are sleepwalking through this or actually don't care if an election is fair as long as they win.
Never wrote that you rated my posts dumb- it's always someone else and this time, someone who hasn't posted much in quite a while did it, but neither indicated why.
You need to realize that many of the people who aren't Democrat don't want to be Republican, either- we want no part of the GOP.
I'm going to post this again, because it has been awhile- the first time I heard of ACORN, it was in regard to a trial for election fraud, misconduct in office and perjury. The defendant was aware that what he did was illegal and had been warned to not turn in the voter registration cards, yet he did it anyway. He admitted to the perjury, but that had little to do with the other charges. This was in 2002 or 2003 and he's a Democrat. In another election, the son of Democratic Gwen Moore was arrested and sentenced for his role in the tire slashing of some vans that were used by the Republicans, for transporting voters to the polls. I can't think of an election where someone didn't find boxes or bags of ballots somewhere, usually after the count has been made and that's just in the MKE area. It's not as bad as many think, but people do f%ck around with the election process and nobody wants to see that their side has any role in it.
People still say that requiring voter ID is racist but if you ask people of color, they don't always agree. EVERYONE who opens a checking account, drives, drop off trash at a local waste collection site, receives government assistance, buy liquor or cigarettes- there's almost no end to the reasons for needing a photo ID, but the Democrats continue to bitch about it in order to stir the pot.
People should be
smart enough to decide that a candidate is/isn't qualified, but many aren't, so they listen to the ads that get their blood boiling, whether the ads are accurate, or not. The ads from Michels' AND Mandela Barnes' side are inaccurate, then Politifact shows where and clears it up for those who are willing to listen, but not for the ones who made up their mind as soon as they saw who's running. Then, there are the voters who'll never vote for someone who doesn't look a bit like them- here we are in 2022 and it's still a problem.
I'm sick of saying "People disappoint me" and the reasons aren't changing, but the severity of the bad behavior is increasing. People are raising idiots and a$$holes, politicians want to blame the other side for it and crime is ruining the country. Yeah, as Carville said, "It's the economy, stupid" but the crime that's spreading from the cities into the counties that aren't even adjacent is causing voters to hate people, whether it's people from the cities or politicians.
BTW- I have posted about shootings near my house- on Friday, an accused murderer was arrested next door. He was able to gain access to the vacant rental unit by his sister's boyfriend who, apparently, unlocked a window. The fugitive's sister stopped by with food and other things (big TV) and did this while nobody was watching- I saw and heard nothing from that house, even when the US Marshals were there to enter. They came and went- I was 25 feet away at my computer and it was like the whole thing never happened. MKE is completely unable to do anything but talk about what they're gonna do, but nothing changes, except for the worse.
Tell me why I should vote for Democrats when they have been in MKE government positions for so long. FWIW- I think Michels is one of the smarmiest turds to come along in a long time. I'm not planning to stay in WI for long. It's time.
