  1. I lived in Colorado during the Great Californication. People who flee blue states are sometimes conservatives seeking a better life, but sometimes other times they work to inflict the same failed policies in their new home.

After the agency’s behavior over the past 10 years or so, that’s something of a mixed blessing.

      Pad the numbers in safe areas where no one is looking for fraud and then when people look at a battleground or someplace where it is close enough to look at irregularities, claim there were none because the national vote means an overwhelming number of people support someone, so fraud in one or two places doesn’t matter.
