Georgia Republicans Concentrate Control Over How Elections Are Run | Rachel Maddow | MSNBC


  1. I really want to see them try to arrest someone for giving someone else water. And they call themselves Christians.

    1. @Mistair Arts Very good point. On the other hand, we’re not a Christian nation. We have the right to believe or not believe in whatever religion we want. Also seperation of Church & state. Not supposed to make laws based on religion. I’m Jewish/agnostic. I don’t want the GOP pushing their beliefs on to me.

    2. @Sabrina Seiderman
      And that’s the point… We are not a Christian nation.
      Every one of them has forgotten what it means that this is a Constitutional government. The People’s vote is what matters, not their personal power… But the Georgia legislators are taking personal power, by changing the laws just to suit their own ends… And that is the problem.

    3. If my mother or father or anyone of my family or any other person standing in to vote in a 90 or 100 degree whether and they’re asking for water or food, I guarantee you that they’re going to get whatever they are asking for.

    1. The Republican voters in Georgia don’t seem to realize they will go for the Democrats voting rights first then they will go for theirs and then they will come for their guns

    2. @James Ricker REASONABLE Folks “Should” be able to see the Similarities..

      First they came for the Communists
      And I did not speak out
      Because I was not a Communist

      Then they came for the Socialists
      And I did not speak out
      Because I was not a Socialist

      Then they came for the trade unionists
      And I did not speak out
      Because I was not a trade unionist

      Then they came for the Jews
      And I did not speak out
      Because I was not a Jew

      Then they came for me
      And there was no one left
      To speak out for me

    3. The way for evil to succeed is for good people to stand back and do nothing. I truly do stand behind your statement 👍👍

  2. I came in my Father’s name , and you would not receive me. Another will come in his own name, and him you will receive. John 5:43
    The Little Horn = Trump.
    Chose Christ not Trump.

  3. So , whoever has control of the statehouse & governorship , has control over the elections ? If so , Georgia gotta go blue , so big & so hard , them boyz runnin home with tails btwn their legs .

    1. It must be illegal. Georgia is still part of the Land of the Free, isn’t it? Hard to tell sometimes. Maybe that Flag of the Confederacy state banner carries more weight than I thought.

    2. What? These people were voted in under the same practices they are changing.

      These congressional officials didn’t hatch, they were elected by the people.

  4. Makes one wonder how many R. States, over the years, have manipulated and cheated during Elections! I would like to see ALL States regularly do Recounts to expose any discrepancies!

  5. This should make it easier for Un Patriotic Republicans to cheat in Georgia.
    As intended.

  6. As i said before, it’s not only about winning the Senate race, it’s removing the GOP from all local, state, Federal office! Don’t vote for them and vote for people who actually will look out for their constituents and not only their party , a conman and their pocketbooks.



    3. @sherri burleigh Only those who try to force their opinions on others type in all CAPS! You have not learned that it’s the same as shouting? The fact that you do so, this is what others see, they blah blah blah. They skip right over it.
      When they find that there aren’t 8 million votes that Trump lost by, let us know. The only ones who voted twice, or dead people voted, or dogs animals, or ballots thrown in a river were by REPUBLICANS and a QANON postal worker. In Georgia they counted the ballots 3 times! You think forensic audits will find votes? HAHAHAHA

  7. In Australia on election day regardless of ones politics they hand out for free what is affectionately known as a “democracy sausage” at polls.

    1. yes thats right…all parties put their ideas and policies forward and everyone has to vote…true meaning of democracy

  8. If Manchin and Sinema refuse to end or reform the filibuster, they’ll be personally responsible for the end of the US as a Democracy.

    1. As a Canadian watching all this I pray it won’t come to that. I’d hate to think we’d be left the only democracy in North America.

    2. @Nuclear Christian
      I don’t think it’ll come to that. The Republicans may think they’re owning “sleepy Joe”, but in Yamamoto’s words, I think they’ve awakened a sleeping Giant.

    3. @Kevin Skiles I hope you’re right. Got to admit I liked the fire in his eyes when he ripped into the Republicans. Or, as I’ve seen them called, the Republikkkans. And I liked your Yamamoto quote. Recently watched a biography on his life and death.

  9. brilliantly said, ty both. exactly, it is the beginning of the gqp’s attempt to bring back full-on jim crow, in all aspects.

  10. “The statements I made cannot be believed by a reasonable person. Yes, the same statements I presented as facts in court to judges for months.” -Sidney Powell

  11. So if it’s illegal to give out free water, can’t they just charge 1 cent? Then it’s not free.

  12. Goodbye to “The Land of the Free”
    Welcome to “The Land of the Slaves”
    Thanks Republicans

  13. I’m hoping by the time all the investigations of the GOP is over , they won’t be able to get anything done , hopefully they will end up in prison with ” the other guy ” !!!

  14. Filibuster here , filibuster there … Your “Two party system” has never been a real democracy .
