  1. Gee, why do I keep thinking this voting suppression is something that would happen only in a dictatorship? How wrong can this country and its people get? Sad!

      Millions of people in those cities and they are surviving despite Trump sticking his nose in to create more hate by forcing military militants to create the havoc in those cities. You think people are going to get up and leave those beautiful cities. You are truly stupid or a Trump bot.

      VOTE BY MAIL AND TRUMP WILL FAIL.

      @shade38211 Chicago and Portland are both safer than Gary Indiana or York PA….Portland and Chicago aren’t even in the top 30 most dangerous cities in America.

    • Rune – Thorne https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_States_cities_by_crime_rate. Pretty sure stats for all cities haven’t been added in last few of violence. Wonder what most these cities have in common?

    • Rune - Thorne | July 24, 2020 at 6:24 PM | Reply

      @shade382112020 list just for you. People buy homes, realtors need these stats. Like I said, not even top 30 and there are as many cities in Red states and as many Republican mayors as Democrats on the list. The real issue for most of those cities is poverty and opportunity. As far as policing, it unconstitutional for federal agents to police cities, and there’s already been a ton of civil rights lawsuits filed against the federal actions in Portland as well as the Trump administration. We the people will get stuck with the bill.

  2. “Rather put ballots in the mailbox than put voters in the hospital.” Well said! If only our so- called president cared about people.

    • @Ron Swanson it was well known the earth was flat until it was proven otherwise

    • @Drought Tolerant Well its not a HOAX . Everyone follow the new requirements and frankly who in their right minds will believe Trump,that hate filled ,selfish ,psychopath who has used all Americans especially his followers to vote him in to the white house to enrich himself not the people,just himself.He loathes his followers,they dont fit into Mar a Lago.Vote Biden for 2020-28 and have someone with experience in charge .Register and vote mail-in ballot or stand in queue to vote HATE out.

    • @Judy Telles- why do you keep saying stupid sht that was disproven 4 years ago? We told you that the hate is coming from you and you are projecting that!

    • @E R Actnodi – yep. You will learn one day

    I don’t know exactly how this works but remember China granted Ivanka Trump TRADEMARK for VOTING MACHINES. Kinda fishy to me!🤔 Oh” and trump asked China to help him get reelected.

    • @Logic B4Religion maybe if America went back to making “quality” products again at affordable prices we wouldn’t depend on foreign nations..if only they could somehow do THAT cheaper in America? Hmmmm?

    • Logic B4Religion | July 24, 2020 at 3:08 PM | Reply

      ​@CherBear No American company is going to pay the wages that Americans would expect for those products. Plus the consumer is never going to want to pay the extraordinary prices that it would take to make those products in the U.S again.
      It is infeasible and unrealistic to think that it would be possible.

    • @Ou812 Guess what? Republicans are lagging in mail in ballot requests and a record number of Democratic requests are going out. Voting machines can be hacked , mail in ballots can be counted. Mail in ballots will allow people to avoid getting the virus. Only you morons think it will be easy to create fraud. The only fraud will be if the GOP controlled states try to use Ivanka’s voting machines..now THAT is fraud! Many of us, independents, Democrats and Republicans against Trump will take out Trump and his GOP party, and when the “a sitting president cannot be indicted” will no longer be valid..the indictments of Trump, his administration, his kids, his GOP party will be a tsunami of it’s own!

      @ARKdeEREH and Trump owes China $ 200 MILLION not counting the interest due in full October 2020 3 months away. And the so called multi- billionaire asked for an extension. 😆. Know wonder he is attacking China. Like the others. They want their money, Trump curses, slanders and sues to not pay.

    • Marlowe Dugger | July 24, 2020 at 6:33 PM | Reply

      @Logic B4Religion Trump owes them $ 200 MILLION plus interest due October and the self proclaimed multi- billionaire is asking for an extension.

    The orange clown and GOP want voter suppression, they know they have lost control and will cheat lie and stop us from voting them out by any means necessary

    • @Kay Genio You sound brilliant. You will LOSE. AGAIN.

    • Don Williams | July 24, 2020 at 4:20 PM | Reply

      @Kay Genio Hmmm well being 6ft apart also is not the sure fire way to avoid contact. Did you know passing someone with no mask it’s minimal to get the virus. It would take face to face for anywhere from 10-30 minutes to have a CHANCE of getting the Wuhan Virus. There have been long lines for DECADES upon DECADES for voting. 28 Million Mail in ballots have been lost or rejected in the past 4 elections. That is from the National Elections Commission. Not Joe Blow.

    • ska  lmao

    • @Bbjones Jones I rather have Biden although he can’t tie his shoe he still has morals

    • @Kay Genio lol

  5. What excuse is needed beyond “I don’t want risk dying or killing my family”?

    • Eric Swartzmiller | July 24, 2020 at 2:23 PM | Reply

      @anthony wright uh ok numbnuts

    • @Eric Swartzmiller According to Snopes.com “The 28 million figure primarily represents uncast (rather than “missing”) ballots and is not indicative of widespread voter fraud (nor necessarily indicative of the potential for such).”

      People not returning their ballots or deciding to vote in person rather than mail in their ballots does not equal “missing” ballots. You’d love to spin the facts to make it seem otherwise but no thinking person believes that BS but you duped fools. LOL BTW, if it is good enough for trump to do it, it should be good enough for the rest of us to do it too. All military personnel not based where they are registered to vote also use mail in ballots. Trump and you don’t realize that absentee voting and mail in voting is the exact same thing. Pathetic.

      @RhondaH you vote your way I’ll vote my way. Good luck in November

    • Eric Swartzmiller No one has ever said how you have to vote sweetly. Only trump and his sycophants are trying to deny others their rlght to vote the way they want to. That’s called voter suppression, a purely Republican tactic.

    • Eric Swartzmiller | July 24, 2020 at 3:48 PM | Reply

      @RhondaH if you can vote in person then you should. In today’s world I’m VERY sceptical of mail in anything. I understand your point I’m not trusting the mail in ballots seems too risky. To each their own

  6. Republicans and Trump KNOW they’ve screwed themselves, so rigging the election is their only option.

  7. If there is falsified mail in ballots
    You can bet they will be written with a SHARPIE!

    • It’s a Blue wave coming not a Hurricane

      OH yes the sign of a real adult . Being able to write with a sharpie.
      World leaders and diplomats take out an expensive Parker pen or something similar .
      Trump pulls out his sharpie
      Love to know what they are thinking when he does that

    • @david thomas omg David..my dad always n only used Parker pens..us kids always got beautiful pen/pencil sets at christmas..excellent product..an even better memory..hes been gone 30 years now..thank you..and you are soooo right about trump..funny too👍✌💜😊

    Remember all those cases of voter fraud Individual 1 snagged with his voter fraud commission? Yeah, me neither 🤷

  11. Arizona, a red state, has voluntary vote-by-mail at 79% with NO ISSUES OF FRAUD. People would not vote by mail if they were concerned their vote would not count.

    • Oregon has been doing this for 20 years..11 cases of fraud caught immediately..

    • anthony wright My post really has nothing to do with who you want to win. I’m just stating the absolute fact that our elections are rigged, both mail in voting and in person voting. I suspect that they may have once been fair back when we were actually a single country, but it’s also possible that we’ve never had an honest election. But now that we are completely fractured and living side by side in two completely different Americas, there is absolutely no way that the elections are fair. Too much is at stake to play fair. We are closer to killing each other than we are to having a fair election. Your disrespectful post proves my point.

    • @anthony wright no..hes not wrong about our country and both sides..but..mail in voting is absolutely the “safest” way to vote with it without covid..disagree with him on that..

    • Charlie Short | July 24, 2020 at 5:37 PM | Reply

      @Will.I.Am11 Expand upon why our country is broken…

    • If the Maricopa Post Office is in cahouts with the DNC, then why do Republicans win by such large margins? Your statements are not consistent with the facts.
      That being said, I am accustomed to placing my ballot in a box, so I take my mail-in ballot sealed in an envelope with my signature inside another envelope to keep my signature confidential to the Elections Office where it goes directly into a voting box.
      My point is that one can take steps to ensure their vote counts, with mail-in voting.

  12. In the May California special election it was all mail in voting. Republican Mike Garcia won. Suddenly instead of being a “rigged election” #FailedTrump didn’t say a word about mail in results. This is what he’s trying to set up for November. ALL DEMS MUST VOTE! It can’t be close. This needs to be a landslide!

    Just imagine how Obama must have felt during his transition period. It’s bad enough from the outside, but I can’t imagine what went through his mind then and now. Just after their first meeting Obama had to knew how bad things are going to get and yet there was nothing he could do to avoid it.

    If there was a way to cheat by mail in voting, you can bet Trump would be all for it.

  15. Or they could have in person voting open for more than just one day, a week perhaps?

  16. The republicans have been rigging the vote for decades, this didn’t just happen, America has been partying during the process. Guess what, the party is OVER.

  17. Remember, trump put his own people in from post master General down! They did this for a reason. He’s not to be trusted with any stage of this event.

  18. Donnie whines about mail in voting but it’s ok for him. I’ll be voting by mail like I have for over 20 years.

    • Yeah, I’ve voted by mail for about 15 years and it is done overwhelmingly in most places that I have lived.

      It would be interesting though if Trump voted in-person himself in order to prove his point or lead by example or something. Even in the unlikely event that he won the election he might catch covid and die. That would make for an odd twist.

    • Same..and will as long as I can breath..

    Mail in paper ballots are better than Ivanka’s rigged Chinese voting machines.
