Republicans are such scum that they will accept help from any quarter in order to stay in power. To them, its no longer about good government and democracy. Its about keeping power in an age where the future of their voting base is at stake. Most young people do not embrace classic republican ideas anymore, and are very progressive. They understand that outside foreign help is one of the only ways they win anymore. Along with rigging the voting system through the use of gerrymandering, disguised poll taxes, and so forth. Scum of the earth, all of them imo. They have pretty much played into the fact that fair elections with large turnout, would lead to large losses for them.
