However, the Rat GOTV efforts have proven to be exemplary. They have won the popular vote in five of six elections. Rat turnout has been excellent in 2008 and 2012, and part of the reason is getting peoples butts to the polls. The Rats do this a lot better than the Rs, and part of the reason is that they have made efficient use of modern technology. The Rs have not, and it reduces turnout, which is costly in a close election
By the way, Ronald Reagan never had a campaign website, but I think he would have one if he were campaigning these days.
The RATs do have a great get out the vote scheme. Sometimes the voters are invisible on a massive scale. I think that is awesome and should be exploited by conservatives in the future.
The United States did not come into being due to Americans playing by the rules. Americans who dreamed up this country and fought for it made their own rules and forced the British and French and Indians and Mexicans etc. to bend.
