  1. I like party’s that don’t suppress our voters rights. And I like party’s that make it easier and fair to vote.

      @V for Wombatsocial distancing helps save lives but right now there is a crisis with illegal border crossing and some facilities are at 100% capacity the same facilities that trump was acussed of putting kids in cages. Do you think that is dangerous? That is also causing more violence in mexico with cartels fighting for control. My in-laws live in juarez so I know what is happening but they don’t talk about that on the news.

      @Michael Olmos “I don’t know how someone can blame one person fora virus”
      to be accurate, trump is the person in the US MOST responsible for one of thw worst responses to the virus int he world, resulting in over 400,000 deaths when he was in office.

      almost every other nation on earth handled it better.

      it’s not as if it’s the first time trump failed, his response to the hurricane in Puerto Rico led to 5000 deaths.

    • Michael Olmos | March 12, 2021 at 5:24 AM | Reply

      @V for Wombat I bet they didn’t have all the riots and protest we had cause I know they didn’t follow the guidelines

      @Michael Olmos “which nations”
      there are something like 170 nations on earth. the US was ranked in the bottom twenty on infection rates and deaths.
      I am not going to list 150 countries for you.

      ” I bet they didn’t have all the riots and protests”
      actually, many did, because when Floyd was murdered many nations across the globe held protests in solidarity with BLM.

    Instead of celebrating historic voter turnout republicans want to keep it from happening ever again.

  3. The Republican party is being un-democratic?
    Say it ain’t so…
    (Cough!) Traitors! (Cough!)

    • What they talk about is what they are thinking, they talk about fraud and stealing election means they are planning to commit legal fraud and election steeling.

  4. “The subtle and deadly change of heart that might occur in you, would be involved with the realization that a civilization is not destroyed by wicked people; it is not necessary that people be wicked, but only that they be spineless.” 
    ― James Baldwin, The Fire Next Time

    “In a word, I was too cowardly to do what I knew to be right, as I had been too cowardly to avoid doing what I knew to be wrong.” 
    ― Charles Dickens, Great Expectations

    These quotes pretty much sums up the sad and depraved state of the GOP today.

    • Cheryl Jones | March 10, 2021 at 4:37 AM | Reply

      Well said!!

    • …And they sum up the people against them.

      I have more faith that if the GoP succeed, American’s will simply roll over rather than dismantle the broken institutions and rebuild them without the taint of the Republican hand.

      If we lose our rights to vote and we do NOTHING because it’s “wrong” to act in any way besides voting, we deserve to be made voiceless assets.

  5. All the more reason to vote the GOP out of office. They fear our voice, which is all the more reason why they need to hear us! VOTE, AMERICA! VOTE!

    Crocodile tears over the integrity of the vote, while simultaneously making it as difficult as possible for people of color to vote. Disingenuous in the extreme.

  7. Nate Schneider | March 10, 2021 at 3:03 AM | Reply

    Wow racism and voter suppression!!! Big surprise from the GOP

  8. GOP is doing everything “back asswards”.

  9. End the filibuster.
    Pass the John Lewis Voting Rights Act.
    Save our democracy.
    🙌👏🙏

    • @Rip Sumrall thats why he has been doing more in the last couple of months than trump did in 4 years… yeah hes totally “coasting”….

    • @Noreb NO, trump got relief bills (bad ones but..), trump got tax breaks for the rich, etc trump got a lot done, just not good stuff. What will Biden do with the filibuster in place? He had a reconciliation bill right there and squandered much of it’s power. He’ll NEVER get the republicans to work with him, and despite his claims of being able to “work across the aisle”, he knows, we know, that is NOT true!
      Now he is free.

      @Rip Sumrall
      Legislative
      Judiciary
      Executive

      Biden is executive, he can’t change the Legislative rules. He WILL sign the bill when it comes to him. If HR1 and HR2 are not signed into law, these are THE LAST DAYS of our country and liberal democracy in the world, really

    • Harry Johnstone | March 10, 2021 at 1:01 PM | Reply

      @Rip Sumrall Trump passed one bill in 4 years, he did it through the reconciliation process

      @Robin J From Wales. Too true Robin.

  10. Accused? They’ve been doing it for decades!

    • Dizzy Marville | March 10, 2021 at 5:52 PM | Reply

      if the Reps. have been lying ,cheating for years—Why did they lose the last election?

    • @Dizzy Marville Because enough people voted despite all the voter suppression and federal mail system dismantling. Lying and cheating doesn’t guarantee a win.

  11. There is no one, and I mean NO ONE, more undemocratic and unpatriotic than a republican.

      I don’t talk to any Republicans..I’m done with it!!

    • Cheryl Jones | March 10, 2021 at 4:35 AM | Reply

      Trump lost the 2020 election still claiming the big lie and the Republican Party is falling in suit because they can’t win again!! Shame on y’all!! This will only make the Black and Brown people come out in droves!! They already tried to do voter suppression and it didn’t work!! I never ever voted for any Republican!!

      @Cheryl Jones I don’t even want to be friends with any Republicans

    • @ThewolfinsheepsClothing who cares you look crazy anyway.

    • @Danny R what are you…like 10 yrs old?

    It is not an accusation, it is a fact

  13. Sadly, there are men like Tim Scott, ClarenceThomas, and Burgess Owens who are okay with restricting the voting rights of people from their own race. In their small world, it seems as though money and power supersedes all else. They are actually willing to take their own people back to the Jim Crow era if it means furthering their own agendas.

    MLK, John Lewis, and others civil rights leaders gave their blood, sweat, and tears to make life easier for those like Tim, Clarence, and Burgess. Some leaders even died to give them a chance to work in Congress and sit on the Supreme Court; yet, these very men could care less about the sacrifices that were done on their behalf. It’s truly shameful.

  14. I say no votes for Republicans at all ever….

    • @Constituent A Yes, the medical benefits were great up until obamacare. It was affordable up until that. The best way to ruin the middle class is to shut down small businesses while leaving big businesses open. Those fear mongering points you refer to are actually happening. Like I said, you’ve won, and there won’t be anymore republicans. No need to be persuaded.

    • @Constituent A Btw, I would be very concerned if only republicans were in charge. I’m an independent constitutionalist that’s for all sides. I don’t disagree with everything the democrats are for. I don’t agree with everything the repubs are for.

    • Constituent A | March 10, 2021 at 5:25 PM | Reply

      @M D No, medical benefits as an actual _benefit_ died in the early 1980s, when the unnecessary tax cuts for the wealthy were going to be paid for by taxing our employee benefits as _income._ To circumvent that, plans were devised to _charge_ employees for their “benefits”, thus making them a commodity rather than an actual benefit. All that did was price some people out of the market altogether, and no one was given a blanket across-the-board salary increase to compensate for what they lost in employee benefits. That was the beginning of the end of the middle class, and one can see it in the soaring disparity in income from that time forward. Obamacare was actually an attempt at restoring what the people lost some thirty years prior, but unfortunately contained compromises with the very party who took healthcare away from the people in the first place. Still needs repair, but don’t hold your breath waiting for any Republican to work on that, no matter what they promise.

    • Constituent A | March 10, 2021 at 5:27 PM | Reply

      @M D If you were indeed a constitutionalist, you would realize that the Republicans hold the unfair advantage right now because the Apportionment Act of 1929 altered the weight of electoral votes between the states in a grossly disproportionate way that the founders never, ever intended.

    • @Constituent A The repubs have no advantage at all. The democrats are in charge of big tech, the media narrative, the house, the senate, the presidency. The democrats are censoring conservatives voices via big tech. Censorship like that is not what the founding fathers intended. The democrats don’t even respect the founding fathers and are cancelling them. They are against the 1st and 2nd amendments.

  15. lindsey graham is the trump lackey that is behind this voter suppression.

  16. Sandra Lewis | March 10, 2021 at 4:00 AM | Reply

    Pass the John Lewis voting rights Bill already. Republicans have abandoned Democracy in favor of Authoritarian rule disenfranchising the American people’s right to vote.

    • How? Biden won’t get rid of the filibuster and republicans will NOT vote for anything that expands voting rights. So all progress is now shut down due to Biden.

    • Harry Johnstone | March 10, 2021 at 12:58 PM | Reply

      @Rip Sumrall Biden can’t nuke the filibuster, that’s up to Senators. Manchin holds all the power on that.

    • @Harry Johnstone And Biden puts ZERO pressure on Manchin. I wonder why?

    • @Harry Johnstone So who is the boss? Shouldn’t Biden at least try to be the boss?

  17. I hope and pray that people can see now how important the vote is.

  18. Sandra Lewis | March 10, 2021 at 4:52 AM | Reply

    One person’s rights denied anywhere means all person’s rights can be denied everywhere.

  19. Rebecca Rhodes | March 10, 2021 at 5:23 AM | Reply

    I think that states that chose to suppress minorities votes should lose federal grants.

  20. If a republican gets in the WH again they would refuse to leave.
