I was disappointed when, filling out my midterm election, absentee ballot I discovered straight ticket votes were suddenly outlawed. I just knew some politicians saw an advantage in this ploy.

Sure enough, the GOP railroaded it through for any obscure help it may hand their candidates. Another heavy-handed, solution to a non-problem to voting regulations already riddled by Republican complications.

Then I read that the ruse might favor some Democrat candidates, and I had to laugh as I recall how the GOP voted in the law that allowed added terms to the two-term limit then in effect, the law that gave FDR a lifetime tenure as president.

Be careful as you scheme, they may backfire.
