There are more conservative/righties in this country than liberal/lefties, so voting can't work for the Left in the long run. Thus the deking and dodging of the various majority rule systems put in place by state and federal Constitutions will never stop as long as the Left is still in the fight. They don't even see it as cheating or subversion - their ends justify any means whether they are legal, moral, Constitutional, or not. And the most you can dig out of ANY liberal in the face of obvious or documented chicanery is the "both sides do it" dodge, which is moral cowardice at its height.
So never ever be surprised by cheating to win votes on the front end or gross miscues of power on the back end when a liberal agenda needs to be served.
