    I will forever love Rachel’s encouragement for people to be strong and brave. So many others, on my side, are telling us to be afraid.

  2. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸Vote American🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
    🇺🇸 🇺🇸 Vote Biden/Harris 🇺🇸 🇺🇸

    • You’d better check the latest….. Trump’s winning. Not only winning, but winning big.
      * B O B U L I N S K Y. All you Trump-deranged people best watch Tony Bobulinsky’s interview with Tucker Carlson last night. The interview is easy to find on YouTube. I suggest you watch.

    Vote blue in staggering numbers too large to contest. Vote early to avoid GOP corruption. Vote blue 2020.

    • B O B U L I N S K Y. All you Trump-deranged people, including Darryl, had best watch Tony Bobulinsky’s interview with Tucker Carlson last night. The interview is easy to find on YouTube. I suggest you watch it.

    • @Jack J Dummy, fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me . TRUMP, laptop and email , sound like a movie in 2016. The president with hidden tax income can’t run on his own last 4years records. Instead, he went back to the same playbook. Pattern is so easy to see.

      @Jack J
      No thanks, I’m good.

    • Biden 2020. A man of his integrity, honesty and strong moral ethics is the shot in the arm we need. https://youtu.be/JvOjlfRpXHQ
      He marched in Selma, got arrested in South Africa for being against apartheid and trying to visit Mandela in Robin’s island prison. Mandela even thanked him years later. Finished in top half of graduating class. Full scholarship and 3 yes 3 degrees. He was against the social security Benefits freeze back in the day. Biden 2020. Blue tsunami all the way. Not to mention being in a battle zone and trying to pin a silver star on a brave wounded soldier. The brave soldier refused and unfortunately died.

    • Blue ? Are You out of your mind ?

  4. VOTE – TOO BIG to RIG, TOO REAL to STEAL…..

  5. Vote Biden/Harris wear a mask or vote by mail 🥰

  6. try: “you wont believe what you can do”

  7. Vote in person now that we are so close to election day….especially in states like Michigan, Texas, and Wisconsin who are trying so hard to suppress your voice. Let their tactics motivate us to thumb our noses at their tactics and make sure our voices are counted and not give TRUMP’S stacked Supreme Court to allow votes not to be counted if contested. In the words of Glen Kirshner..vote so it’s too big to rig and too real to steal. Vote Blue.

    DON’T LET THEM discourages You, Americans, wait for as long as it takes to Cast the Vote for the desperately needed CHANGE.

  9. If everyone got to vote, the Republican party will NOT exist.

  10. C’mon US! The world IS watching, we want crazy out and we want you to STAY IN LINE. Thank you for doing so, your friends in NZ

  11. America take your ballot directly to the polls…. vote every single republican out of office…..

    • Remember those lines your waiting to vote out the republicans, who made you wait in those lines?

    • yes and thanks for the reminder, Russian trolls here would like to convince us of some other weirdness. lol

      @Accolade Awarded
      What, do you mean like the hundreds of Trump supporters who stood for hours in the freezing cold after Trump’s death rally, then had to be taken to the hospital, so they could be treated for hypothermia? Do you mean like that stupid? Trump doesn’t care about any of you!

    • Elaine Burnett | October 28, 2020 at 7:38 PM | Reply

      @Accolade Awarded You are right. We are very stupid, we believe in freedom and equality. We believe all human beings are equal and deserve the respect guaranteed by our American Constitution. We trust each other to have different opinions. Yet with differences, we will forever agree our country is worth defending.. May we always stay stupid, and optimistic that love of country always trumps hate!

      @J Upiter Exactly…..

    Can we impeach the entire SCOTUS for criminally limiting our right to vote?

    • Judy Bargenquast | October 28, 2020 at 5:09 AM | Reply

      If they lose the senate and Trump somehow remains he can be impeached. Thrown out. Like he should have been. Twice impeached sounds good to me. BTW. Throw Collins out for her BS vote against Barrette. No is fooled as to why she did that.

      ..wow…you snowflakes really are a whole new level of stupid.

    • wowhttps://youtu.be/zFJ2AN_CZH8J

  13. How can America be a democracy when the people don’t have absolute say in their representatives. A vote is sacred and must count. Those that hinder the true count are traitors.

    • wowhttps://youtu.be/zFJ2AN_CZH8J

    • Absolutely! We’ve all heard of voter suppression before but this is a whole different story. When the President is Dismantling the most important Government process ( U.S Postal Service) to discount votes it is treasonous and illegal. Thats when you know he’s got to go.

    • It goes even further than that…they constantly congratulate themselves for being the world’s oldest democracy. But in reality, the US was never really a democracy until August 6, 1965. What a great farce this country is.

    • Remember those lines your waiting to vote out the republicans, who made you wait in those lines?

      👏👏👏

    Voters have the Supreme court arrayed against them too.What a monumental insult to the Founding Fathers not to mention a perversion of the Constitution.

    • @J. Lo So does cheating a president out of his constitutional right to appoint supreme court justices. The republicans will pay for that seat dearly.

    • so true..

    • Lmao The founders would have been marching with those brave young white men in Charlottesville with tiki torches.
      Who are you kidding?
      The founders wanted a Nation by white people FOR white people.
      You know it I know it so stop lying.
      🙄

      @Mosley Oswald Advertising your British[ ?] fascism by your user name it seems.Do you read backwards then?

    • @Mosley Oswald Oh. You have the British Union of Fascists guy’s name in your avatar. LOL There is nothing like a neo Nazi bonehead.

  15. To all who stand in line… you are, each and every one, Profiles in Courage. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  16. The American people vs. the Republican party.

    It was good to see the legal observer from ACLU was wearing his identifying Tshirt that was BLUE.. 😊

  18. To those who haven’t voted yet, please vote on Election Day and give Joe Biden the Second Wave.🇺🇸🌊🌊
