there must be fifty ways to win an election

...besides being the candidate with the best interests of one's constituents more at heart...

to list a few:

  • suppress contributions to your opponent by making nonsupporters doubt income dependability

  • make sure your supporters vote early

  • challenge the registration of probable nonsupporters

  • on election day, tie up traffic in areas dominated by nonsupporters

  • hack the voting machine

Just a reminder that confidence in the integrity of the process is a prerequisite to faith in democracy.
