"Shallow Throat": Wounded, Cornered Animals Are Dangerous
The most important part of this essay is the last portion which emphasizes the need for a return to paper ballots. Until we do that, the GOP will never lose to any significant degree another mid-term, much less presidential, election.
I very much doubt paper ballots will return. I very much believe that we are living through the final days of an America which anyone would desire to live in and it is already way less desirable than it was even in, say, oh I don't know, let's say the year 2000 for some reason. In other words, the nightmare scenario lies dead ahead. Emphasis on "dead."
