Republicans Openly Beg US Supreme Court To Help Them Cheat In Future Elections

"If conservatives become convinced that they can not win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. They will reject democracy." ― David Frum

Some surprising honesty, today, at the US Supreme Court:

Justice Barrett: What is the interest of the GOP in keeping (laws that suppress minority voters) on the books?

Republican Lawyer: It puts us at a competitive disadvantage relative to Democrats.

Several Republicans (including Trump) have admitted in recent years that if all eligible voters were allowed to vote (as they should in a properly-functioning democracy), the GOP would never win another election.

So they are now on their knees, blatantly begging the Supreme Court to help them cheat, to make voter suppression that favours Republicans legal.

A dilemma: We need more votes. What should we do?
(a) Give voters more of what they want and need, so voters like our party and vote for us.
(b) Enrich ourselves by passing whatever laws *WE* want and cheat wherever we can to suppress our opponents' numbers.
We all know which way the GQP has chosen.
