Republicans are doing everything they can to suppress the vote, because every study shows that if everyone voted, Republicans would pretty much lose. (Not every district, of course, but they would certainly lose their House majority, as well as many statehouses.)
But there is one idea that they haven’t grasped yet which would accomplish the same goal.
What they need are for people to become apathetic about politics — especially young people, who are overwhelmingly less religious, more liberal, and less prejudiced than their elders. What the Republicans need is a way to keep these people in a state where all they want to do is watch TV and eat doritos.
You see where I’m going with this, right? Come on, Republicans! Legalize marijuana and then those kids won’t even be motivated to get out and vote! Bam! Instant suppression without breaking any laws!
(OK, Republicans, stop reading now. The rest is for my Democratic friends.
Shh! Don’t let on. Most republicans are so clueless about both marijuana and what young people want and think that they just might fall for this!)
