Cyber Intimidation American-Style

We don’t need Russia to hack our voting rolls. We don’t need Paul Manafort to try to sell access to them.

We have the Arizona Republican Party.

As reported in these pages, democracy is only as effective as its participation. Take an active citizenry out of the governance equation and a ruling caste is hatched with all the oppression that can be mustered to maintain power.

In a way America is more than half-way there. This is not rhetoric. This is a dry-eyed look at our current political hemorrhage. Our voting laws were abridged and the Supreme Court blinked. Our Electoral College was rendered obsolete and a political party turned its back. A state political party is attempting in full daylight to attack its voters’ data and information pool, blinding Arizona voters of accountability and opportunity.

Storm the mind, intimidate the will.

And ‘here we are:’ a blatant insurrection, a soft-sided January 6.
