GOP's stated policy positions poll so poorly voters refuse to believe they are real.

Strange you mention this because I literally had a dream last night that SCOTUS scuttled the ACA and I was being kicked off my wife's insurance due to previously having cancer.

I think it is primarily hatred for Obama. Also the fact they aren't really a functional political entity interested in governing. It's been ten years; they have no health plan. Just a bunch of bullshit shell games and an attempt to raid medicare. That's it.

Another more cynical view, is that they want to unravel "obamacare" to the point that its a disaster too big for the Dems to clean up. And they'll be able to campaign off the chaos. But that seems like a wild gamble, considering again they have no alternative plan. Not like their base is getting healthier or younger.

It's quite remarkable how after all these decades of chest beating the GOP just literally gave up on Healthcare. In some ways all their bullshit may bring about the socialist gov't takeover they claim not to want.

Love to hear Kushdog talking bout The Blacks on a moday morning.

Sort of disagree! The process isn't "hard" but it is purposely onerous without pre-planning, knowledge and prime regional location. However, I think what you are seeing is the results of a year long Get Out the Vote effort that we haven't encountered before. People are motivated to go through the hoops.

Real kicker for us swing-state folk, is the potential of ratfuckery after the fact by the GOP legislature and/or the courts.

Get me to the "Declared the loser" and I'll worry about the next steps.

In the wake of protests following the May 25 killing of George Floyd, a member of the “Boogaloo Bois” opened fire on Minneapolis Police Third Precinct with an AK-47-style gun and screamed “Justice for Floyd” as he ran away, according to a federal complaint made public Friday.

Wow. Nobody could have predicted. Next thing you know, we will find out that the "Pigs in a blanket fry em like bacon" line Trump uttered during the debates is utter bullshit.
