Predictions of big 2020 turnout mean greater GOP ugliness

Stories predicting 2020 blue wave voting will sharpen the elbows Republicans will throw to save cult leader Trump, his loyal party bellhops and their special-interests' favor dispensing machinery.

So we will see more voter suppression tactics, like blocking automatic voter registration in toss-up Wisconsin. As Scott Walker might have put it, 'In Wisconsin, we made it harder to vote and easier to cheat the system.'

Republicans will continue their defiant defense of gerrymandering to hold ill-gotten legislative powers and leadership positions - -

- - and we'll witness fresh, plentiful spending on fear-mongering ads to save Walker-designated Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Dan Kelly in April just like those coughed up from the right in the last Wisconsin Supreme Court race to seat blatantly partisan 'Justice'-elect Brian Hagedorn.

Because voter suppression and power preservation is a two-level/two-fisted game that is easier to win if you make the rules and can change them at will.

You batter your opponent with one hand and use the other to dig deep for the cash that saves your friends, thus yourself, too.
