Genius just isn’t the word. Stupid is. Rig the system and not too far in the future, it will come back tio bite them. This shows the corrupt side of politics - win by stealth and deception, not by winning the voters over by good policies.

—Rig the system and not too far in the future...—

I would not apply the word “rig” to this. It actually makes it more fair. It is appalling that one guy can “slightly” win a ton of states and, therefore win all of their votes, while the other can win far more votes, but they are lumped in only a few states, so he ends up losing. I like representative government to be a little more “local” than that.

It shows a lack of a long view. Fix things to our advantage for right now. Tomorrow is a myth. When the Security laws were coming up I thought, yeah, they are needed for now but what will a Democrat president do with them?
