  1. I live in the UK, by no means are things perfect here whatsoever but… Do you know how long it takes me to vote? About 3 minutes. Literally from my house, to finishing. Poll stations are everywhere, my closest one is literally 2 roads away. I walk in, I never have to wait (maybe max 30 seconds if there is a very, very small queue) then give name, tick box, give back, done.

    1. It’s not about time, ID, or POC. It’s about cheating and 80% of the US wants it to be easy to vote and hard to cheat

    2. @Lena Strope Strope It’s about being salty about losing the Presidential Election.

      Let’s call a spade a spade.

    3. @Ralph Sims First off, is your sarcasm meter broken? But if you want to analyze it, well, hmmm, let’s see. Organized healthcare, simplified voting, simplified taxes, almost no homeless, shall I go on? As for our “rights”? They are privileges and don’t let anyone else tell you any different. If you think any different, then I suggest you look at 1942 and what happened to the US born Japanese-American CITIZENS around that time. What we’re seeing developing here is right on the brink of madness. But that’s just my opinion (backed up by facts).

  2. Often, people can see what’s right in front of their nose and still not be able to grasp it.
    ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS!!!

    1. @Tommy Dolan yeah those articles dont exist lol… even the heritage foundation doesnt have any data to back up your nonsense xD way to fail kid.

    2. Problem is that the Rethuglicans were never “for the People”. Its ironic that, up here north of the border, all the parties are trying to make it easier for everyone to vote, trying to make it even easier to vote wherever possible.

  3. Also gerrymandering is a huge voter suppression. Boundaries should population based, voting stations and ballot boxes should also be population based

    1. @Tommy Dolan ROTFLMAO! Priceless! Has a “doctorate” in CS (no actual descriptors), and works as a “server” at a hotdog stand, yet he is rich! Too funny!

    2. 24- Card You are arguing with your self, you said Dems want everyone that can legal vote and that the want to to say that the republicans want to do the opposite.

    3. @Cadre Deux English isn’t your first language is it? Can you get some help from, oh I don’t know, a third grader to help you spell some English words in a row to form a more appropriate (decipherable) thought? On second thought, don’t worry about it. You don’t matter.

    1. Let’s hope soon as the next republican president.
      Then get rid of voting all together

    1. What is new is that it’s not the same cheating Republicans. These are Trump supporters and they are not cheating, they set up the Democrats to get caught.

    2. Problem is that the Rethuglicans were never “for the People”. Its ironic that, up here north of the border, all the parties are trying to make it easier for everyone to vote, trying to make it even easier to vote wherever possible.

    3. @Dok Skwyr You act like this bill hasn’t made it easier for people to vote. You just need an ID – like you do for everything else in this country, you crybaby.

      In a surprise Friday press conference, Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg announced the Grand Jury indictments of three local Democrats — Richard Bonton, Natasha Demming and Damien Jones — connected to two election fraud schemes tied to the local Texas House of Representatives races in House Districts 142 and 132.
      Most of the fraud charges are connected to the March Democratic primary for Democratic state Rep. Harold Dutton’s seat representing HD 142. Ogg said that Bonton — who previously and unsuccessfully ran against Dutton in 2018 and again in 2020 — conspired with Demming to help her run in the HD 142 Democratic primary under a fake name, Natasha Ruiz.

  4. Heard a lot of talk about filibuster going back to the origin form but no action that I can see. How come?

    1. What’s weird about this filibuster is ,it’s not a bill it’s just a thing they decided to throw in there to mess with democrats

    2. @PATTY PERRY the filibuster has been used my democrats just as much as republicans.. god you are dumb.

  5. Everybody seems to be interested in recounting the democrats votes, why not the Republican votes? We’re they all “right”?

    1. In my opinion Amy won Kentucky..make the poorest State pay for 3 more recounts…McConnell lost

  6. Give the bill to the people. That’s how you make a referendum. If the bill is given to the people, they will vote on it. Switzerland has an outstanding tradition on Referendums

    1. Problem is that the Rethuglicans were never “for the People”. Its ironic that, up here north of the border, all the parties are trying to make it easier for everyone to vote, trying to make it even easier to vote wherever possible.

  7. JUST DO IT!! GET THE STUFF GOING AND GET US RELIEF!!! NOW!! Tired of waiting for you to do what you said you were going to do. NOW! SO WE CAN WIN BIG IN 2022.

  8. Everybody here in Missouri are talking up a storm Abt the actions we will take with our voting we have some Republicans here we’re ready to get rid of. We need people for the citizens not people for their own selves and big corps. I know 2 in Missouri for sure who are going as soon as we can get em gone. Missouri starting to shine with that Blue democratic glow. People are seeing the mistakes they have made and we want our state back and our country back.

  9. democrats just need to ram through federal legislation on party lines, exactly as the republicans are and then make them challenge the laws in court and waste THEIR constituents money on legal battle after legal battle and just keep passing them until the election so that the laws stay in effect.

  10. Listen people!!! 15th and 19th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution states that Voting Rights cannot be abridged. Strike down ALL these restrictions!!! NOW!

  11. Guess I’m too old but the current filibuster is horrific. Mr Smith Goes to Washington—-they need to earn the filibuster not just waves flag and say you’re done.

  12. How does limiting voting rights make America great..when will duped cultists realize they’ve been “played”
