    There is one ☝🏽 party that is seeking to disenfranchise 🗳voters: GOP

    • Michael Reid | March 29, 2021 at 8:19 PM | Reply

      @Al White no they know full well. It’s that old MAGA trick to take a fact and twist it up.

      Compare apples and oranges!

    • Michael Reid | March 29, 2021 at 8:24 PM | Reply

      @David Goldman isn’t it ironic, that the isolated cases of vote fraud all happened in Republican states like GA or TX. Caught by a Republican official.

      But the person committing the fraud was also a Republican! 🤔🤔🤔🤔

      Please send all of your stimulus 💰💰💰directly to DJT again.
      He’s gonna need every cent for the 40 plus criminal & civil lawsuits he’s facing in federal jurisdictions & 3 states.

      @Salsa 4datass Wise words indeed Grasshopper however it does disenfranchise dead voters, illegal immigrant voters, out of state voters, underage voters. You know your base.Thanks for your Concern!

    To tell the black community they Cant….. 🤣🤣🤣did they not pay attention to who they just voted out. TRUMP. I believe Kemp might have a problem getting reelected. They flipped georgia fool. Your stupid law and you be next.

    In this day and age? Unbelievable!

    • @David Goldman Not allowing voting office to be open on Sunday’s. Purging/deleting tens of thousands of voters because they didn’t vote in a previous cycle. Limiting drop off boxes to just one box for an entire county covering a few million people.
      Oh!!!! I’m sorry you said to name one piece of that law……. My bad.
      Thank you Aero FPV. I used parts of your comments to save on some writing.

    • Michael Saylor | March 29, 2021 at 11:45 AM | Reply

      @Anita Bruton untrue that they’re preventing voters who didn’t vote in previous cycle. Nice try though. I guess you think it’s not good to ask for ID in order to vote?

    • Sharon Taylor | March 29, 2021 at 11:47 AM | Reply

      @Dennis Vance It has always been here.

    • @Michael Saylor what about taking the attorneys general’s right to certify an election and giving it to the people you place in power? What about that?

    • Michael Reid | March 29, 2021 at 8:30 PM | Reply

      @David Goldman hours there that’s one thing. You want another? Lack of adequate locations there two things!

      Anyone not affiliated with a political campaign can give you water and snacks. You can bring your own. There are things called “drinking fountains”.
      It sounds as if you cannot handle that…

  5. I dont get it, why is it even possible for a State to undermine USA! ???

    • @Maharajji NKB I don’t believe you are human. I think you are a rat who stole a smart phone and are in your rat hole trolling away. You see how that works? Just because I believe it doesn’t make it true.

    • Vera Sanders | March 29, 2021 at 2:29 PM | Reply

      Because that’s what they wanted it to do. Their all working in concert. That’s why the insurrection isn’t a big thing to them. Peace

      Take a civics course before you think about voting. You aren’t informed enough to make these descisions.

      @HunterBiden’sGun Live a life and you won’t need civics. You would be CIVILIZED. If you’re basing your facts on what they taught you, remember, everything they taught is a lie. When you were in your CIVICS class, you were being programmed not educated, that’s what you should know. Peace

    I wonder if the folks defending this realize they are aligning with Russian propaganda that has been weaponized and used by the Republican party to spread disinformation, and tear our Country apart… I wonder…

    • @Michael Saylor I’m agreeing with the Pentagon and US intelligence, not just the percentage of neofascist insurrectionists who had military and police experience. You’re going by the lies told by the right wing disinformation machine. May you get all you deserve for adhering to the reactionary party line of the Grotesque Quisling Party. Good day, sir.

      @Brett Orlob We can’t agree to disagree? Sigh. I guess until we realize we’re not sworn enemies we will remain divided.

    • I didn’t forgive the genuine convicted quislings in my own family; don’t even ask me to forgive strangers.

      @Solstice of Snow and that’s why Twizzlefuck did nothing when Putin put a bounty on us soldiers,

      And when Russia was caught hacking what did, this puppet say? “ Gee it could have been China”

      That’s no way to thank the country, that gave your daughter a patent on voting machines. She planed to sell after Rudy, Sydney, and orange disparaged Dominion.

      Of course Twizzlefuck only cares about himself.
      All part of the evil plan!

      @Brett Orlob oh I’m sorry you misunderstand me. I’m not looking for forgiveness for my opinions. Nor would I accept forgiveness for having ANY opinion. Also, if you think forgiveness is required for any opinions of your family members then you’ve got some serious issues.

    America, land of the free….unless you give someone in line a bottle of water. The “crime” is not a civil infraction or ticket or misdemeanor; it’s a FELONY. Republicans gone wild.

    • Apparently knocking on the Governors door is a felony too.

    • you cant give someone a bottle of water, can you sell someone in line a bottle of water say for 1 penny a bottle.

    • Republicans are being backed up by Putin the Russian leader like in 2020 an 2016 to back up Trump that’s why the GOP doing what there doing I figured them out

  9. Infrastructure and voting rights, please.
    Get rid of gerrymandering and we’ll see a real honest picture of the American electorate.

    • Get rid of the Electoral College altogether ! Has never made sense to me, especially in modern times. Have each vote count on its own !!!

  10. Can someone please explain to me how giving someone standing in a long line, food or water, contributes to voter fraud? I fail to make the connection…

      Yes. But please don’t vote if you believe that black people cant get id’s. Please don’t vote if you think that it’s imperative that campaigners give voters gifts at the polls.

      We will never forgive them and we will remember their names. You forgive the devils and see what happens. He’ll be back because forgiveness represents weakness to them, congress. All their fangs are showing. Don’t forgive, get RID of filth. Peace

    He left out the fact that Fulton County is the most populous county in GA and over whelming black.

  14. I’m for pictured State ID but shutting down and removing many DMV locations to acquire this State ID, not allowing voting office to be open on Sunday’s to prevent the black Baptist Southern church member to vote, purging/deleting tens of thousands of voters because they didn’t vote in a previous cycle, limiting drop off boxes to just one box for an entire county covering a few million people, IE: Austin Texas, closing voting offices at 5pm just before people get off of work unable to cast there vote, oh and not providing WATER to a thirsty American citizen waiting on a long line to vote because they could not legally cast an absentee ballot vote, is what, as an American, I’m against and if that’s not voter suppression then the Webster’s dictionary should correct it’s definition.

    • Synchro Tripp | March 29, 2021 at 1:55 PM | Reply

      You prove your Identity when you register. I’m all for all voting to be vote by mail and for the registration process to include showing ID then when you vote the ballots are manually recounted automatically rather than waiting for a request. That way nobody has to bother with the non sense of questioning it. Recounts can be automatic to match the machine counts. Our current system works and if people want more efficiency, fine.

    • Dude, what’s your deal, I’m on your side. What the?

    • Thomas Chisholm – Regardless of what side you’re on, here’s a little friendly advice. A little all-caps is ok, too much all-caps makes you look desperate and a bit crazy.

      @Richard Cogbill so you get your mail from a neighborhood mailbox that is being phased out? Where do your bills come to? Is it somewhere that you can’t also mail something?

    Arrest someone for giving water & knocking on a door is insane. What type people we have in government. We have to vote these kinds of people out.

    • ​@Troy Patterson Your list is accurate but may want to put the one about the state legislature removing local election officials at the top as its the most egregious and unconstitutional.

      I really dislike and disrespect Governor Kemp. What an awful racist man. I am so angry.

    • @Brigida Banfelder You throw these labels around Brigida….how about you post an example of his ”racism”.

    • Brigida Banfelder | March 29, 2021 at 11:04 PM | Reply

      @HS Here goes: I found this quote on the web: “Racism always finds a way.

      President Donald Trump endorsed Kemp in the Republican primary for governor.

      Kemp, as Secretary of State, effectively disenfranchised tens of thousands of Black voters. As CNN reported last December, in October 2018 “then-Secretary of State Brian Kemp — then the Republican nominee for Georgia governor — enforced a policy of “exact match.” Under the policy, the most minor discrepancy, like a typo or missing letter, between a voter’s registration and their drivers license, Social Security or state ID cards was flagged, leading to more than 53,000 voter applications being put on hold. The majority, seven out of 10, belonged to African-Amercans.”

    • Stats show that Georgia Republicans voters do not care, they still want their cheating Good Ol’ (racist) Party.

  16. For the 2nd time in our history, the far right wing has declared war on America. It’s time to denounce that party as American and to treat it as an ENEMY of America.

    • Thomas Blinne | March 29, 2021 at 12:10 PM | Reply

      Actually they have declared war on any democracy world wide, here in Europe Bannon and his guys are trying to build a NAZI like Kader school (fortunately denied the idea by an italian court), supported Governments like the Victor Orban like, Poland, Uk with the Brexit etc etc etc . It is a coordinated interruption of democratic processes around the world. So sorry for normal thinking US citizen as this must be mindblowing (it is definetly from far away , (germany)). Human Races have to stand together to administer together the goods we have on this ONE SINGLE Planet. Where do they want to go when only Zombies like them are alive ? reminds me like those Zombie movies……..Stay strong everyone !!!!!!!!

      I bet they had no problem voting without a political campaign giving them snacks and water.

    • @HunterBiden’sGun I bet the GQP didn’t deliberately create such long voting lines back then.

    • HunterBiden’sGun | March 29, 2021 at 7:17 PM | Reply

      The lines are not that long. There have been record numbers of votes the last two elections.
      But if you don’t respect the right to vote, you should stay in your basement.


    • @Craig M i think it was the democrats that caused long lines and extra votes.

  18. It’s the obligation of each generation to take things one step further…knowledge is power!!!😉👍🇺🇸

      And we should call out the liars.
      The law is about campaign workers giving snacks and drinks to voters.
      Anyone not affiliated with a campaign can give you whatever.
      Also, black people can get id’s.

    The fact that an overwhelmingly unpopular law like this can even be passed just demonstrates how broken state politics is.

  20. ApocalypseOfSpoons | March 29, 2021 at 1:33 PM | Reply

    The Republicans have become fascists, and the term “Red State” has taken on a whole new meaning. If they can’t win an election legitimately, they’ll try to steal it using fascist methods. They’ll claim Biden stole an election while passing laws intended to steal one. They’re such amazing hypocrites and traitors to democracy.
