I don't disagree with you, however one of the biggest issues we face is the vote harvesting - which both parties are guilty of - and a result neither party will deal with it, until it hits a visible criminal issue (which those cases have been linked here before)

This is why I don’t see any parallel towards the 1960 Hawaii issue and the current ones before the court. If you are affirming something you believe is true...
Arguable, as the only significant difference is the engines don’t rotate, the gearbox linkage for the rotor is very similar.
