What matters is who shows up in sufficient numbers for the November election. Will people who hate having their store, their job, their neighborhood burnt and trashed show up and vote accordingly? Will other generations outvote the portion of the youngest voting generation that supports the madness?
Do we only do our minimum bit and fill out our own ballot, or do we dial for voters, support registration, seek to persuade in and outside our bubble? Are we planning to help the old folks in the home nearby? Are we pushing our local Republican precincts to ballot-harvest harder than Democrats, if that is the game called in our state?
But they cheat! So what is new? We have always had to vote beyond the margin of cheating. That is why Hugh Hewitt wrote “If It’s Not Close, They Can’t Cheat” in 2004. That was 16 years ago.
