  1. I’m a white woman. As a Democrat, I was nearly prevented from voting twice, the second time, I waited three hours On the sidewalk, during which time it rained. You only have to be a Democrat, and they will hassle you.

    1. @Margaret Nicol y
      Yes. Exactly. Thank you. At the last minute. Just a sign on the door.

    1. That’s why the majority of them have the contents of their cranial cavity next to zero brain activity.

  2. Had no idea how far Russian meddling made it into the heart of the Republican party.
    Astounding decline of the American experiment.

    1. Reagan and Russian fascists brought down the USSR and the USA through subversive corruption.
      “Even before the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic occurred, the US was mired in a 40-year population health crisis. Since 1980, life expectancy in the US has increasingly fallen behind that of peer countries, culminating in an unprecedented decline in longevity since 2014.”

    2. @Daniel Duvalle And you did not even mention another legacy of the Reagan administration:
      Our present problems started after Ronald Reagan’s FCC abolished the Fairness Doctrine in 1987, a policy that required the holders of broadcast licenses to both present controversial issues of public importance and to do so in a manner that was honest, equitable, and balanced. It has been this singular act that has really served to create these self-serving loudmouth talk radio personalities and their echo chambers that have divided the country and continue to disseminate lies and promote chaos with the goal of causing the people of America to lose faith in our democracy and our institutions, including the media, that prop up that democracy.

    3. You guys cheated every way imaginable. Destroyed the most sacred right Americans have, to vote. Kicked all republicans out of the counting. Stole a national election and are doing everything possible to stop a legal and accurate audit in AZ. And you have the balls to still talk about the fake Russia Russia Russia story? You sir are about one bad morning away from shooting up a congressional ballfield. You’re a sick and twisted, lying individual!

    1. No. It means false mail in ballots must also be counted. And the illegals voting is democracy.

  3. It’s hard to watch the game that republican party is playing! It’s pathetic and I hope that it is going to be a horrific thing for each and every one of them!

  4. “Suspicion is the companion of mean souls, and the bane of all good society.”

    ― Thomas Paine, Common Sense

    1. “America is going to be fkkd if the GOP continues down this path they’ve chosen”

      Most Americans; Straight from the lips.

    2. @olrik parlez The GOP is doing a very fine job but the Dems are ruining my life. I may even have to pay something called ‘taxes’ out of my own pocket. They are so nasty that I might not be able to buy that third sea going yacht I wanted or completely refurbish our castle in Scotland. It’s all making me use my gold toilet more often.

  5. Biden should go on FOX and tell Conservatives that Trump is really the King and that they’ll never have to vote again … am sure most of them would believe it.

    1. Voting doesn’t matter anymore. It’s been rigged for 20 years through the machines. We’re WAY past this being solved by political and court means.

  6. Integrity and ethics
    are apparently too heavy to shoulder for this latest incarnation of the GOP and have become something to be flung contemptuously into the ditch…along with all other troublesome weighty vestiges of honor.

    1. Yes, remember there once was such a time that you would hear things like,
      “If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power” President Dwight D. Eisenhower, 1956, 4th Annual Republican Women’s National Conference
      from the Republican party. Now the Republican party has become “merely a conspiracy to seize power”.

    1. BREAKING… AZ Audit Director Ken Bennett: Dominion Refuses to Comply with Subpoena and Turn Over Password to Their Maricopa County Machines
      We are ALL laughing at her and you!

  7. If they’re gonna love Trump they might as well go full on nut case because they’re over half way there.

  8. Five books everyone should read:
    – ‘The Dictator’s Handbook’
    By: Bruce Bueno de Mesquita and Alastair Smith

    – ‘Black Earth: The Holocaust as History and Warning’
    By: Timothy D. Snyder

    – ‘On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century’
    By: Timothy D. Snyder

    – ‘Our Time Is Now: Power, Purpose, and the Fight for a Fair America’
    By: Stacey Abrams

    – ‘Surviving Autocracy’
    By: Masha Gessen

  9. “Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein: and he that rolleth a stone, it will return upon him.”
    Proverbs 26:27

  10. This has never happened before in the history of the United States.
    It’s happened in other places. Always shortly before a dictatorial coup.

  11. Who the heck are these people fs who get to see others voter Info. Can we just all have our lives back, Dang It!
