After writing 20 Ways the 2018 Elections Will Be Stolen, it became clear that the government control Republicans hold today is already illegitimate, based on a legacy of cheating and gaming elections and racism. I did not previously understand the pyramid of anti-democratic activity that granted them power.

Whatever we hope and plan to do to win elections in 2018, Republicans and possibly Russia, have organized to limit voter access and manipulate results.

Republican authority is a fraud upon America that we need to wake up to.

The essay covers everything from gerrymandering, defunding the 2020 census, felon disenfranchisement to Crosscheck and the Election Integrity Commission.

See it for yourselves. Your ideas about American democracy will be changed.
