  1. Donald J Trump is killing this country

  2. Moscow Mitch is starving Americans to the polls.

  3. In the Netherlands it takes 5 minutes MAX to vote!

    Why do you have these ridiculously long lines? Why is voting so difficult in the US? 😳

    • Because crooked politicians and corporations want it that way. If it was easy to vote, the people would vote and rule. They complain that only 60% of Americans usually vote and do everything in their power to keep it that way.

    • Republicans make unjust rules designed to make it hard for Democrats to vote. It’s known as voter suppression or political doping.

    • What the people there are doing is having paper “mail-in ballots” printed out so they can either fill them out there and drop them off ( or at one of the other Phila. city sites) or take them home to be filled out and either mailed( which imo is too risky) or put in a drop box. This is NOT the same as in person voting with voting machines which is only happening in PA on 11/3.

      Why is there a line next to Phila. City Hall? Because it’s convenient to get there. And PA has never had actual mail in balloting before this year. Before it was absentee balloting only plus in person voting.

      Plus the pandemic. The EU is having a huge problem with cases,right?

      If it helps with foreign trolls , Phila. has a ton of equipment to handle and process these ballots. And this has bern said a thousand, in certain places, the lines happen partially because of voter suppression. But the lines are not universal in the US. I have never stood in a line. I live about a mile from this video took place.

    • @Karen Byrd Yeah, the county also has quite a few drop off sites. Unlike Texas where the governor blocked counties from having more than one site despite the vast size of the average Texas county. The line at city hall is probably because everyone knows city hall is a drop off site. People may not have checked to see where the nearest site is to their home/work. Also, people are standing several feet apart so the line stretches much further than a normal line.

    • CORRUPTION. Voter suppression. Republicans don’t want us voting b/c Democrats are in the MAJORITY. So they lie/cheat/steal every election they can.


    • @Rocky Rock that numbskull has been all over Youtube using different account names, trying to impress people with how smart he is. he uses two dollar words to disguise a one cent mind. he’s just a pretentious loser who usually gets humbled, like you’ve done, bravo!

      @Susan Cruisin I realize that, and I respect your consensuses.

    • @Karl Foster Yours wasn’t.

    • I’m an agnostic, but even I heard that Lockdowns are next to Godliness. One half of that statement is true, which part?

    • One part of the equation is ever so simple if Democrats sweep, Biden will be the biggest doormat in history

  5. 20 – 40 million people are under stress to pay their rent, surges of covid-19 are rampant in america, unemployment is through the roof and in the midst of all of this chaos you have a president doing the the happy dance to ymca at his rallies and you’re opting to not vote? woooooow!

    • Deaths are down so one factor: probably the virus is not very deadly. 225K is a lot, but I suspect half that by end of March to add. “The cure can’t be worse than the disease”. Bless the tremendous vaccine effort that Trump has no small part in

      @Sam Harris Your logic has just summed up every that’s wrong with Trump supporters.

    If Trump wins by the narrowest of margins, it will be considered a clear and decisive victory.
    If Biden wins by a narrow margin, it will be stolen through Trump’s stacked courts.
    That’s why this MUST be a landslide for Biden.

    • Exactly. A blue wave must crush them all

      Shut up 😭😭😭😭

    • Wow,, you are soooo right. Not sure what SoCal Surfer is thinking but based on trump’s behavior that is exactly what will happen!!!

    • @SoCal Surfer16 Hey there big man,,, guess that’s what you wanted folks to see with that monicker,,, so what do you love about trump? Stop the BS insulting of opposition… start with the “Love of Trump”…. common Dude!! You can do it…..

    • @SoCal Surfer16 No. We will not be silenced. We have a right to our ballot just as you do. And we’re going to exercise that right which our forefathers died and fought for. ✊✊✊ ✊

  7. I’m so pumped this Election cycle. Hearing Obama speak has reinvigorated & motivated me. Seeing this record breaking turnout has made it look like tRump is doomed I’m so happy to report!

    Vote BLUE . FIRE the LIAR .

  12. WELL DONE EVERYONE. VOTE DURING EARLY VOTING NOT ON ELECTION DAY. VOTE FOR BIDEN-HARRIS WE NEED IT TO BE A BLUE LANDSLIDE. THE MENACE tRump WILL DO ANYTHING TO WIN. Stay safe and stay well. Remember who said the virus “WAS A HOAX.” Remember what he has done to Help keep the number of cases and DEATHS down. NOTHING. HE HOLDS RALLIES. I am a former republican, 83 year old senior, who already voted a straight BLUE ballot in my state of Texas. I hope others will follow what I have done. Thanks

    • I’m a first time 61-year-old voter, Donald Trump forced me to vote. So I voted for Joe Baden and all the way down Blue

    • I’m a first time Voter at 61 years old. Donald Trump forced me to VOTE. So I voted for on Oct 14 forJoe Biden and all the way down Blue

  14. vote for civility and inclusion…
    vote for equality and integrity…
    vote for medical science and common sense…
    vote for basic human decency…

    Voting, voting, voting! Don’t ignore this election. Vote for the blue! The consequences of another 4 years of Trump’s rule will have to be raked up for many decades.

    • I know I’m beating a dead horse, but civic duty calls. I find it amazing as the denial of the impeachment being based on pure hate is rock solid

  16. Go Philadelphia! Our country needs you!

  17. Just busting your balls | October 27, 2020 at 1:16 PM | Reply

    Trump is trying to undermine election. The supreme court will side with Trump over country. Vote early they are gonna try to steal election.

    • Yes, he will definitely try

    • That would be the most dangerous thing the Supreme Court could possibly do. Let’s say Biden wins with the same margin Trump did in 2016. It would be pure insanity for the court to overturn in if they’re smart enough. It would be catastrophic.

  18. Trump and Republicans would do away with your right to vote and the Constitution all together if they could.

    In March, Trump openly admitted that an increase in voting numbers would hurt his party, saying proposed reforms would result in “levels of voting, that if you ever agreed to it, you’d never have a Republican elected in this country again.”

  19. Enough of the The Trump nightmare. We need to take OUR country back.
