They might be douche bags but I’m not aware that they broke any laws of democracy.

You can democratically decide to abandon democracy - which makes you anti-democratic, even if you follow the rules.
Republicans are clearly abolishing the principles of representation and transition of power by gerrymandering districts and taking powers away from an incoming Democratic Governor.

I do believe have done the same (it’s a fact on gerrymandering).

How would that be relevant to the OP?
Is anyone absolved from working to maintain the democratic principles of a society because some are not doing so?

How is it not? Unless you believe it only applies to Republicans. I’m absolving nothing, just pointing out the both sides do it.

Are you saying that it’s okay, since both sides do it?

“In a different world, Republicans might say they share the goal of making voting easier and more inclusive, and they just disagree with Democrats on the best way to accomplish that goal. But that’s not their position. Their position is that they don’t want voting to be easier and more inclusive. They would prefer it if all Americans didn’t vote.

Which, if you believe in democracy, is a morally repugnant position to take. But they know exactly what they’re doing.“
