    That is why I’m talking about fight back

  2. Why are the Democrats not enforcing the Constitution Amendment 14 Section 2 that penalizes states that infringe on voters rights by removing their seats in the House of Representatives. Enforcement of the Amendment will effectively put an end to the Republicans attack on our voters rights.

      Isn’t odd how there’s never any replies when we ask Trumpublicans which news outlet/s they watch or which news outlet/s they suggest we watch for the “so called truth”!?!

      @Kryptonarie 63 cmon, give him a chance to speak, I want to see both sides anyway.

  3. All businesses should pull out of Georgia. Collapse that fascist state.

      Not feasible. There are other states that GOP are working to pass bill suppression votes as well. The solution is to fight it in court and challenge it at the SC and support the voting rights that Biden administration is pushing.

      @Pinnacle of Faith Church of God in Christ. you’re obviously a cretin !

    All the best music comes from struggle & the struggle for American democracy is happening now.

  5. When I heard freedom I was like there are actual rappers out here still rapping!

  6. So, lets take a very sketchy situation and just throw gasoline on the fire. I do hope they challenge that law immediately. This is B.S. of the highest order. IMO – Who ever state puts up roadblocks like voter registration, it should fall upon the state to ensure that each and every citizen has a state authorized ID card and any other documentation required. they (State Officials) shall face fines and possible jail time if the citizens do not have the proper documentation when it comes to vote. That is a clear and defined interference in their rights as citizens.

      That makes so much sense. No one is against actually being whom you say you are when you vote: it’s the racist and arbitrary requirement of obstacle riddenly attained id that’s problematic. Excellent point.

    We can’t claim to be the “Greatest Nation on Earth” with this Crap going on !?!?!

    Knocking on a door of a governor signing public bills in private? Arrested. Breaking into the capitol, assaulting police, and obstructing congress? Go home and maybe we will catch you later.

    • Beenthere Donethat | March 26, 2021 at 9:56 PM | Reply

      Except they are being caught. Even the proud boys and oath keepers

    • Repubs don’t even need to try hiding their corruption anymore because other like politicians do nothing to hold them accountable. It’s B.S.!!!

    • Derek Brandell | March 26, 2021 at 10:48 PM | Reply

      @Beenthere Donethat What percentage of the people in that mob do you think will face charges in the end? Do you think they would have let BLM go home and hope that there was video of the perpetrators later or do you think as many as humanly possible would have been arrested? I know people are being caught, I don’t think if BLM had taken over the capitol many would have been sent home to be identified by facebook videos later.

      @Derek Brandell They would have shot as many of them as they could “in fear for their lives”.

    These troopers didn’t even read her her right tat suppose to be the law of our country u arrest someone u should read them their right

  10. 14th amendment! Take away Georgia’s congressional seats. Strip federal funding

  11. The GOP in this state doesn’t care anymore about hiding it corruption. Those politicians should be removed from office.
    Straight up bullsh!t

  12. Let alone when the governor of Georgia signed that he was in violation of the open meeting act

  13. Hey NFL, NBA, MLB, MLS, WNBA, Corporate America, where do you stand? This is an attack on the right to vote! Democracy Now!

  14. Georgia needs to come together and vote out more Republicans.

  15. America where are you, you’ve been gone for 4 years? Hurry back WE NEED YOU.

  16. This is why real Americans spell Republikkklans this way and they now consider the Republikkklan party to be the Russian government.

      Because the Supreme Court is full of corrupt conservatives who will follow what the Retrumplican party and all the corporations that fund them want. They won’t up hold the law or strike down undemocratic laws

      @Nathan Carabajal nah, the Supreme Court threw all Trump’s lawsuits so they can’t be what you described

    • The Supreme Court doesn’t do anything unless a case is brought to them.

  18. In this year of 2021… I can’t believe we are still fighting for Democracy and Freedom in this Nation of ours. Keeping people from Voting and making it very difficult is UNFORGIVABLE!

  19. People in Georgia need to come together just as they did for George Floyd.

    • ChimpCube chimpcube | March 26, 2021 at 11:27 PM | Reply

      you mean the drug abuser? we STAND FOR THE POLICE! AND THE FLAG!

    • We have come together, reason why the state is now blue. This is just apart of the battle, but please believe, this will not end with a deaf tone.

    Georgia authorities need to face consequences for what they did that was ridiculous, shameful and should have never happened.
