Lefties think that any law that restricts the ability to cheat is "voter suppression". I dismiss that off the top. Democrats embrace gerrymandering as much, if not more, than republicans. Republicans just don't publicly whine about it.Your first claim is simply untrue. Racial gerrymanders and voter suppression are essential to continued Republican electoral success. “Democracy” means rule by the people … not rule over the people by a potentially tyrannical state as under the Dobbs decision.
And giving voice to the people is the opposite of a "tyrannical state". I guess not if you're a fascist though.
