  1. Georgia, last vestige of old Jim Crow laws. GOP last stronghold, 2nd to Texas

      @Nando ya, you’re right. It’s amazing how blind the “compassionate” left are to their extreme racism and human suffering. Just look at the current border situation. Children stacked on top of each other….what covid? What cages? They think they’re compassionate, but they’re actually horrible people!

      @JP Smith This is what constitutes and argument with you fools. You automatically default to…”get educated”….”You don’t know anything” . Meanwhile, you provided ZERO evidence to support the nonsense you heard on CNN. Zero evidence to support the statements made by a bumbling old racist President. You use buzzwords that become so saturated, they have zero meaning. You have no idea what the words even mean. Talk to one of you, and I’ve talked to all of you. You’re hive-minded. You’re not capable on your own thoughts.

    Just say No to Coca Cola, Delta and Georgia Pro Sports. Support Democracy

  3. Kemp knows he’s in trouble. Trump will back a challenger to his position so he thinks that by implementing this law he will be back in trumps good books. The Republicans don’t even try to hide their racism any more.

      @Jiminy Cricket Maybe you should have mentioned Trump. He skipped out on the draft. From the start he was in trouble with cheating the government. It wasn’t trolling that lost him the election. It was fascism. The tables are turned and Democrats are getting accused of the same. It would be great if we could all just get along. We ultimately aren’t our beliefs.

    • Jiminy Cricket | April 1, 2021 at 10:09 PM | Reply

      @Debra Cottrill I’m cool with that. I agree fully with that sentiment. I’m just tired of the battle formations lined up on either side. We’re all fighting the wrong people. To be honest I’ve just about given up hope on any national reconciliation though. We’ve probably destroyed ourselves already.

      Requiring ID is voter suppression. The only reason Republicans push it is because it does reduce voter turnout. It’s proven by multiple studies that it makes it more difficult for poor people, especially voters of color, to vote. Identity is established when people register.

      However, if election security really is your concern, there is a compromise: automatically provide all registered voters with a specific ID just for voting (and it could be used as an auxiliary ID too, if necessary). See, there are reasonable compromises to these issues. But watch, Republicans will fight against this idea. Why? Because election security is not their concern; suppressing the vote is.

    Brian Kemp sat on the Board of Elections while he was running for office which should have been illegal. Why don’t they change that law? Because he won. And why did he win? He sat on the Board of Elections and made the rules.

      @T. R. Campbell Are you implying that the churches were wrong for helping homeless americans register to vote? That smacks of elitism, please reword it if that is not your intention.

    • T. R. Campbell | April 1, 2021 at 8:24 PM | Reply

      @Alison Casilli I don’t know where you get that idea. Obviously the churches were not wrong that assumption is absolutely silly. However, many Who were registering voters were very enthusiastic and over zealot. We remember the situation in St. Louis and Kansas City Missouri some years ago with the group Acorn. They were registering the dead, cartoon characters, athletic and sports personalities. The end result was that several people from Acorn went to jail.
      No, obviously not the church itself but some of the people. Thank you for wanting to clarification.

  5. Kemp is the reincarnation of George Wallace.

    • Joe biden is the grand wizard…you idiots put the Klan in the WH!
      Try to live with yourselves.

    • I’m a Dem but.. I defend Lyin’ Brian! What else could he do at this point? Covid-45 said two months ago that he was sorry that he, initially, supported him in 2018 so, whatever Repug runs against Mein Kemp will get Ex-prez “coming down to Gee-or-gee-a” (kinda like da devil did) so, he was, likely, advised that his only shot for reelection was to “restore confidence to voters” (hmmm, whose confidence… Dems who won or…Repugnicans who lost?) by telling a BIGger lie than Tramp’s BIG lie! Folks, honestly, you have to tell another lie to support first lie – geesh, come on! Pure genius! Kemp once stood his ground against Tramp…he would have, a little, restored his reputation by restoring voter confidence BY DOUBLING DOWN on his previously confirmation of voting NOT having fraud and left office with his boots on. Now, sadly, he’s admitting Tramp, Rudy, Sidney Powell, insurrectionists, etc. WERE RIGHT by reforming voter laws by…manufacturing ANY voting solutions in search of no voting problems.

    • I guess you never really knew George Wallace, plus you have the wrong state Davie. You mean the guy with the ax handle, now google him that is all the information I will give you. First name is Lester, hint.

      @Smoke Rise Right, meanwhile Trump and the rest of the sunshine band just tried to override an election where most of the turnout was due to the minority vote and he lost, gtfoh, seriously….

    • Funny: Liberals are perfectly OK with forcing people to have a “Vaccine Passport”, which is also a proof of identification, in order to travel or go to a sporting event or participate in other group activities yet they still want you to believe that requiring an ID to vote is “RACIST”!!!!! If it is, then it is also racist to require ID to cash checks or buy cigarettes or alcohol!!!!! Hey, maybe the liberals are providing the solution; just require the “vaccine passport” be presented to vote, problem solved!!!! Thanks liberals!!

  7. Add locations for absentee voting with A/C and water. There has to be a response to other ways around this. The will of the people must triumph.

    • @Paul Fannin You may have read my previous comments. I find that incredible, a sealed ballot paper is no different to a letter. I often post the mail for my ailing next door neighbour.

    • IrishH Irene Higgins | April 1, 2021 at 3:32 PM | Reply

      @Les
      Something about ‘ballot harvesting’… Apparently there is concern that some nefarious individual is likely to open people’s sealed envelopes, change the votes, reseal them, turn them in and No One Would Notice…
      I think this seems unlikely, but…so many Republicans further this type of rumor.

    • @IrishH Irene Higgins To open and reseal an envelope and to change a marked vote, presumably a marked x or tick, indelible or not, cannot be done without leaving evidence. I was a forensic document examiner for 20 years, I do know what I’m talking about. What is wrong with the people who make these restrictions. That’s rhetorical, I know what’s wrong with them.

      Dude, see what I’m saying… It’s a ridiculous idea, part of a very spurious campaign of disinformation. Republicans keep pointing to their constituents’ concerns, which their leaders know are based on a LIE. Instead of debunking the LIE, they are trying to change laws…

    • @IrishH Irene Higgins It’s hard to tell if the GOP lawmakers lead of follow their dolts but they are clearly desperate and can see the writing on the wall, and it says ‘EXTINCT’.

    They set it up so one polling station with 2 machines for 100,000 voters in line for hours. With no access to water or food it’s torture.

    • @Robert Teixeira
      We have never needed voter ID because there hasn’t been an issue with people pretending to be other people to vote. Identity is established when people register and each voter’s information is on file at the polling station. It’s just not necessary.

    • @Potter Gray
      And all those Dixiecrats switched to the Republican Party. Or are you going to argue that white, racist southerners moved to the north and urban areas and became black and Jewish liberals? Those southern, white, racist Democrats are the same people who are southern, white, racist Republicans today; which is why we’re seeing Republicans carrying Confederate flags and wearing pro-Nazi, anti-Semitic t-shirts nowadays. Your argument is a “reeeeeeee argument”; in other words, 🐂💩!
      When the conservative blue dog Democrats proposed the 1994 Crime Bill, they did it with full support from Republicans. You’re being extremely disingenuous with this argument in trying to make it seem like the Democrats were responsible for such legislation; the Republicans authored that legislation and were the primary drivers to pass it. Among the Democrats, it was only the more conservative Democrats like Biden who supported the legislation.

    • @keir farnum your party is the party of the KKK and is built on keeping black people down no matter how much you try to defend it.

    • Isn’t Cancel Culture simply the post-modern name for “boycott”? I see no reason to doubt it. In which case, “cancel culture” is every bit as American as other boycotts throughout our history. Outcries of Cancel Culture are actually a deligitimizing of the First Amendment.

    • Absolutely!

  11. We live in a country where 65% turnout is considered “historic “…it’s already too difficult to vote here! No more restrictions until voting takes less time than buying an AR-15..!!!

      You haven’t tried voting in a poorer neighborhood then, have you? That’s the entire issue: voting takes far more than an hour in many places.

    • @OblivionDio
      Police do it all the time. That’s exactly the problem: the police have become so powerful that they are often no longer beholden to even their bosses. Look at what has happened with DeBlasio in New York.

    • @Smellyweasel23 !
      Uh, duuurrrrr! Because the Republicans are trying to change laws to restrict access to voting. And HR1 isn’t as much about whether there was fraud or not. It’s to ensure access to voting, which isn’t the same thing as election security.

    • @OblivionDio
      The Senate is supposed to be the equalizer between the larger, more populated states and smaller states. The electoral college is based on the House of Reps, which is no longer apportioned fairly. The vote of someone in rural Iowa is equivalent to 3.8 votes in urban California. Why does someone in Iowa get more say in how our president is chosen? If we want a fair electoral system, we need to increase the number of electors and the number of representatives in the House to equal the population. It used to be far more representative when the population was smaller, but the country has grown, and the number of representatives/electors has not. Considering it used to be more fairly distributed when the population was smaller, it shows that the number of representatives/electors was not meant to be some kind of balancing mechanism between small and large states; the Senate was to play that role.

This is politics after all, and their revenue was over 180 billion last year. Imahine how much they move thru the economy.Yeah i dont think the government really would want them to cripple.

Banks do this all the time, they keep your ID on file then they just pull it up on their screen. But this isn’t even the worst of it. Limiting drop boxes, making it harder to get mail in ballots, AND not allowing someone to bring water to people in line. How utterly cruel and idiiotic to say the least!!!!!

    • @Smoke Rise in Georgia, there are approximately 200,000 people without an ID, the majority of which are minorities. Voter id laws don’t solve any real problem, but they do help keep people from voting who Republicans don’t want to be able to vote.

    • So you feel corporations should “explain” to their staff the correct way to act and think. That sort of thinking is how you got into this type of corruption in America in the first place.

    • @S Jeffries Your self-righteous indignation is laughable coming from any American voter whatever political stripe you are. The reason why your politicians are so sleazy and corrupt is because of YOU the voter. Nobody else.
