    1. @風の国のナウシカ It’s a poor people problem. Poor people don’t own cars therefore no driver license. Poor people don’t have the $40+ bucks to pay for a legal photo ID card, poor people might be uneducated and not know how to request, or have $ for, or time to wait for a copy of their birth certificate…. I agree, showing the card itself shouldn’t be a big deal, but access to getting a card can be an obstacle. We need to institute policies that every child is registered to vote at birth, and voter ID cards should be free and easy to access in every neighborhood

    2. @Billy Pardew You obviously have not watched or read enough news outlets to hear why some Democrats are not all in with axing the filibuster. Besides, the reason for getting rid of it has more to do with legislation in the next two years and nothing to do with elections. Educate yourself.

    3. @Suze bulshit it has everything to do with the elections because if the Republicans take over the house and send it in the midterm they’ll used their majority to get rid of biting bulshit laws and they will only need a majority vote to do it. So all Democratic progress will go down the drain

    4. The problem of this law is that some people cannot get ID cards because of various reasons. I wonder how those people cope with other situations in their daily life which require people to show ID cards. To begin with, the municipals should investigate how many citizens do not have ID cards. I think it is the responsibility of institutions to help its citizens to have IDs legitimately. People should have IDs to live conveniently and voter fraud can be prevented with IDs.
      As for the location of ballot boxes, the election is not a weekly event. It may take us some time to go to the place, but we sometines must accept inconvenience in life. l still think people need this law. This is not a racial issue.

    5. @風の国のナウシカ Thats the best thing I’ve seen on this thread.
      The fact is, Democrats have manipulated minorities for decades by telling them they are not as intelligent as white people and therefore they need “special” rules so they can vote.
      Thankfully more and more minorities are seeing through their lies and walking away from the Democratic Party.

  1. Should be one set of unified laws across USA for any elections period. What you have now is a joke

    1. @johnnyboy62 parker democracy is starting to be repressed at the hands of the Democrats . They have seen the affects of the masses using their right to vote during an unprecedented pandemic using mail. in votes. The GOP know they will never get in again if people vote in the same numbers so they are now blocking/restricting democracy. The status qui of the Republic is being eroded

    2. @Doomsday Defense 1977 My favorite part is if Kennedy was running for office today he would be Republican! Could you imagine if any Republican were to say today,
      “ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country!” RIOTS IN THE STREETS!

    3. @Heritage Karma no dumber than someone backing an authoritarian leader who claims complete power in a country with a checks and balances system. There’s plenty of foul slurs to go around. The politicians work overtime to keep us separated while they are over there making out like fat cats. They know our power as we the people and well now, they just can’t have that.

    4. @THE ANGRY QUAD read what again? Try forming coherent thoughts, and use some words. I know it’s difficult for you types, reading and writing coherently.

    1. @Dem Basher Hunter is innocent until proven guilty. Haven’t seen much evidence of guilt on the airwaves so……find a better argument

    2. @Dem Basher Huh? Do you just collect snippets of news stories and throw one out like a mud ball everytime you want to speak, whether it’s relevant or not? How old are you? 12?

    3. Waiting in line for hours is a joke of a voting system, people are being conned into thinking its normal. Now their saying you cant get water while waiting, or the next time a republican rings for 11,780 votes, they can now give them those votes. Bad faith arguments for voter id is the only game republikkkans have left, evil humans.

    4. So do you really believe the Democrats do? really? Listen to yourself. The Party that stuff the ballots

    1. The Nazis, the fascists in Italy, modern day Russia, China, North Korea, the Soviet Union, and Georgia. All the same system. The State now tells you who you voted for.

    1. Why does Brian Kemp have bodyguards? To keep other braying jackasses from mating with him… and to stand guard outside Motel 6 while he “consults” with Marjorie Taylor Greene.

    2. seems certain folks are upset. Thanks for showing yourselves. You all really think this is about an ID, eh? That’s it? ID, ID, ID…. That all I keep hearing… Read the legislation, and stop embarrassing yourselves.

    3. @Johnny Fash All nations will rise when neanderthal thinking eventually falls. Are you proud of your elegant defense of slavery?

    1. Tom Blakley
      how exactly are we in bad way? I read the bill. What exactly is in it that denies voters rights?

    2. @Alex Hamilton The part where a committee of the ruling party (the legislature) now decided how the voters voted. That’s fascism by any definition.

  2. “The statements I made cannot be believed by a reasonable person. Yes, the same statements I presented as facts in court to judges for months.” -Sidney Powell

    1. @Robyn Hickey You are very wrong, my dear. Here is what really happened: Biden lost by the absolute biggest landslide possible, the Democrats stole the election by mass mail in voting, Dominion machine manipulation, and votes being switched after going to ‘adjudication’ to name a few. The judges were kept from seeing any evidence, but guess what? The people aren’t backing down. Take a peak at what is happening in Maricopa County with the actual forensic audit of 2.1M ballots. Just watch happens after this first domino falls. Then you might wake up. Seriously. Wake up.

    2. @William Springer “No reasonable person would conclude that the statements were truly statements of fact,” which was said by Sidney Powell’s defense attorneys in their filing. It was probably her idea because it is a very ridiculous defense. I hope they aren’t referring to you, William.

    3. @Cee Dee I voted for Biden as well as all my RN & MD colleagues and every medical professional I know, which is a lot. Also, most of the people in my state (CA) did. CA has more voters & EC members than MANY red states put together. Show your proof of dead people voting or sit down & shut up, sore loser. So far, people far smarter than you have tried & failed to come up with ANY evidence of voter fraud (except on your side) despite MONTHS of trying desperately. Good luck, you will need it.

    4. @Lisa Ortiz Take a peak at what is happening in Maricopa County Miss RN and tell all your MD friends that actual forensic audit of 2.1M ballots is about to happen. Keep getting your info from Brian Stelter on CNN and Joy on The View. Just watch happens after this first domino in Maricopa County falls. It’s embarrassing how ignorant you really are, yet you vomit ignorance in an attempt to flex online. Typical soy liberal. You are about to get a wake up call, but keep lying to yourself in the meantime.

  3. Six books everyone should read:
    – ‘Black Earth: The Holocaust as History and Warning’
    By: Timothy D. Snyder

    – ‘The Dictator’s Handbook’
    By: Bruce Bueno de Mesquita and Alastair Smith

    – ‘On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century’
    By: Timothy D. Snyder

    – ‘A Woman of No Importance: The Untold Story of the American Spy Who Helped Win World War II’
    By: Sonia Purnell

    – ‘Surviving Autocracy’
    By: Masha Gessen

    – ‘Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents’
    By: Isabel Wilkerson

    1. Thanks for the book recommendations! I haven’t read any of them, but I recognize the name of some of the authors. These are going up on my to-read list now.

  4. Thank you, Senator Booker. This is bigger than the filibuster. Our democracy’s future demands we pass the S.1. the For the People act. This must pass. Period.

    1. Why is requiring Voter ID and not mailing everyone 15 ballots racist? What is wrong with ensuring all of the dead people stop voting for Democrat? What is wrong with that? How can you still believe your side for calling this ‘voter suppression’. You are a dying breed because nobody voted for Biden. Wake up donkey.

  5. WE THE PEOPLE…WE THE PEOPLES HOUSE……WE THE PEOPLES MONEY!!!! Come on speak up the rest of the world is tired of the silence. Big Hug.

    1. So you think you shouldn’t show I.D. to vote but you need 8 points of I.D. to get a drivers license? That makes sense to you?

    2. @THE ANGRY QUAD Exactly, yet they want to call it ‘racist’ and ‘voter suppression’ for some reason. .

  6. “Power tends to corrupt; absolute power corrupts absolutely.” So wrote English nobleman Lord Acton in 1887. His statement has often been repeated, perhaps because so many people see it as undeniably true. Humans have been abusing power, as history has confirmed again and again

    1. “A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

    2. Why is requiring Voter ID and not mailing everyone 15 ballots racist? What is wrong with ensuring all of the dead people stop voting for Democrat? What is wrong with that? How can you still believe your side for calling this ‘voter suppression’. You are a dying breed because nobody voted for Biden. Wake up donkey.

  7. It’s crystal clear that the problems exist. I’m interested in what do we do about it. Let’s start now. Right now!

    1. Why is requiring Voter ID and not mailing everyone 15 ballots racist? What is wrong with ensuring all of the dead people stop voting for Democrat? What is wrong with that? How can you still believe your side for calling this ‘voter suppression’. You are a dying breed because nobody voted for Biden. Wake up donkey.

  8. Authoritarianism is the BIG message to get out there, Sen. Booker thank you and please speak this loud and clear. . Race is an extremely emotional and valid issue, but also a distraction to the real agenda. Fear bating using race to the end goal where ALL America loses, not just the “other”.

  9. Authoritarianism mixed with Theocracy is what these psychos want. They literally want us to return to the dark ages where people were burned at the stake as heretics for questioning their power.

  10. Problem now is if you knock on the governors door for answers you’re guilty of a felony, just don’t ring the doorbell that’s life without parole.
