  1. If someone has to wait in line to vote long enough to get thirsty someone giving them water isn’t the problem.

  2. People complain how slow and ineffective government is yet these jokers passed this shitpack in just a couple of days. Oh, it works when they want it to.

    We do need federal laws protecting voters. It needs to be spelled out, like how many voting boxes are available according to population numbers. That people shouldn’t have to drive a certain distance to go vote. That college students shouldnt be kept from voting. And any person elected or not who interferes with voter rights should go to prison

    • @Jeremy Backup that’s not an issue for anyone who isn’t a Republican politician. The worse party will lose elections. That’s the incentive for politicians to help their constituents.

      @Thomas De Quincey: is, of course, shamelessly lying. As Trump Cult members invariably do — following the evil example set by their God-Emperor, the criminal con-man Trump.

      @William Appleby shut up and think for yourself and stop watching extreme left news networks.

      No, the bowling laws are a product of the states. The states control the voting laws in their particular geographical area. Keep the federal government out of it. If you don’t like what you’re doing on your state both the politicians out.

      @Brian Callaghan i would gladly lend my hand in sinking the entire islands of Hawaii who Don’t want to save the republic

      @Scipio Africanus What is ‘creepy’ about a president who solves problems concerning real Americans and not the cronies of the former guy?!

    • Well that’s not going to happen….the rioters will take a beating, some of Trump’s co-conspirators may go down, Trump himself may end up in the poor house but these politicians, corrupt as they may be are just passing laws, just cheating, just watching out for their brothers and stopping at nothing to keep their jobs…they will see no roundup or jail time, not even a fine, all they will get is voted out, maybe.

  5. They just needed one line:
    “Whenever we are not happy with the results of any given state vote, we can adapt them however we see fit.”

    Georgia kemp think he has a freefall attack on voters right, suppression tactics, but we here in Georgia must stand up and fight for our Constitutional rights as American citizens, it not kemps state its we the people state. Fight for democracy!!

    • Joe ,
      It’s not. I have to have a ID to check out a library book. Notice no one is clasping their pearls over that.

    • Dani,
      That is bc a majority of states require ID. Thus secure elections 👍🏿

      Strong words.
      Fighting involves bleeding and dying.
      Getting fired. Getting convicted of crimes.
      I don’t think many Georgians, many Americans are willing to do that.
      They have *dependants.* The alternative; to put their heads in the sand, to ‘wait and see’ for the next election, shrug their shoulders and hold out hope for the Founding Fathers to descend from the sky and ‘fix it’… Will be the only _sane_ option for many Georgians.

      @Joshua Sweetvale strong words to fight, is not a physical call to action, but a call to protect, to vote. Vote vote, thats the real fight. But i promise the very people, kemp is attempting to suppres, will be the very ones that vote him out.
      Votinggg That’s The Fight!! Vote vote vote

    • @Man Animal no one is clutching their Pearl’s over that here stupid!!! Can you not read??? Pay attention!!!

    Guess what’s coming? We’re on our way to an American Spring!

  8. GOP politicians doesn’t care about America.
    I pray for the USA. 🙏

  9. The selfish are eyeing up the chances of dictatorship. They look at Putin, Kim, Xi and go green with envy.

    • That’s what there going for they don’t care about us they done sold them 666 building so they can take over and have landing spot

    Democracy needs to be defended by each generation.

  11. “How does that prevent fraud? IT DOSEN’T” ALi nailed the logical argument against Agolf Twittler and his Orange minions in Georgia and all other states with Repuglicans taking away our voting rights.

  12. Good job Ali.. People better understand and be aware what is at stake with what is happening..

    Isn’t it ironic that South Africa’s elections are less restrictive, much simpler, more independent of political parties than the US???

  14. 11 hours in a line to vote is clear evidence of voter suppression.That was the integrity of the voting that needed fixing

    They are loosing so bad they made it illegal to give someone water standing in line. SAD!!!

    Democracy is a fragile thing. We must stand up and keep the ideologies our founding fathers risked everything to give us, alive!

  17. They are outnumbered. They will fail miserably! They are terrified of voters. It’s over. Their time is running out like rabid animals.

    The Democracy he’s talking about is up North a bit, Canada, where his dad was the first Member of Parliament of Indian descent elected for the province of Ontario, he also went to Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. That’s the democracy he’s talking about…

  19. We need federal regulations for voting, period. The goons can’t keep suppressing voters and victimizing voters just because they don’t vote for them. The Republican party has sunk to a new low and it cannot be tolerated.

    • We had it. It was called the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and the fascists on the Supreme Court gutted it.

    Every congress person trying to overthrow our Democracy needs to be charged with treason and thrown into prison! We all see what they are doing, they all took an OATH to protect out constitution and everyone of them has broken their OATH! Artical12 v2-4. We should be saying Hang the traitors!
