    Aloha, Democracy, eh!

  2. Flipping Texas state house would be a sweet price for all these effort.

    • @Carz N Stuff how so? that’s not what I’m experiencing.

      @Emma Rose That doesn’t mean they can change the way people vote.

    • @William Nelson
      Unreservedly and without doubt or fear of contradiction,

      your trolling is puerile & weak.

      Must try harder!!!

      .

    • In Texas, flipping the State legislature from red to blue would finally help set to rights what is SO wrong with Texas politics. Then, you have to vote out Abbott or make sure no GOP governor takes his place. That’s how to “LIBERATE TEXAS” or any state, for that matter.

  3. Looks like voters are finally making good on that Make America Great Again thing. πŸ€”πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

  4. VOTE in person! Or drop off your ballot to your election office! Be aware of how you sign your signature! Make sure your ballot has the security envelope! Follow all directions!

  5. Aloha Hawaii ! — *Swamp the drain.*

  6. Would it be fair to assume that the number of people voting early is an indicator of how desperate people are to get rid of dump or is it simply that the Covid thing means people have time????
    I liked the old guy who wants to tell dump β€œyour fired! By my vote β€œ

  7. The toilet tank is filling up in preparation to flush that persistent orange floater down for good!

  8. They don’t want people of color to vote in Alabama they never have. That is why me and my family will turnout for Doug Jones. I will vote for the candidate that knows what the voting rights act does and will help my state and not just the GOP.

    • @Jasmany Foch you wish. Hayseed. Trump is done.

    • @Art K Try reading through the comments again. Show me in quotes where I even so much as mentioned those men. It is interesting how quickly you approve of vigilantism, capital punishment and the decision that committing previous crimes means that a person has no more rights. Are you sure you want to live in that world? Of course this would require rational thought, well beyond anything displayed here by you so far. I am sure to be disappointed.

    • Thank up!!!

      Dems are drama queens.

    • @Messi Goh Not few months… Few weeks… Learn your units

  9. Alright Hawaii! We usually have the worst voting turnout of all 50 states. It’s about time we get in the game. Vote Vote Vote! Vote for America!

    GOP dislikes this vote count…

  11. VOTE in person! Or drop off your ballot to your election office! Be aware of how you sign your signature! Make sure your ballot has the security envelope! Follow all directions!

  12. _NOTE! This is an old style broadside, not a β€œTweet”. If it’s too much for you to handle, move on. But If you’re deeply appalled by what’s happening in this Country, and you’re just needing a kick in the pants to go out and vote, read on_
    *VOTE! BECAUSE WE STILL CAN!*
    πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ
    _A Broadside_

    *WE HONOR AND CHERISH* the memory, the courage, and the spirit of those Americans who suffered and fought and died whether willingly or unwillingly in the name of our Nation: on the battlefields, on the cotton fields, on the Great Plains and the River Valleys, and those Americans who are today being assaulted, beaten, shot and murdered by unrepentant and undeniably racist police forces befitting a fascist regime, and those Americans who daily fill our hospitals fighting a novel virus, contagious and deadly. But if we wish to make this claim of honor true, first we must honor Truth itself; for, Truth is the only thing that cannot be overcome. *AND TRUTH IS NOW TELLING US WHAT MUST BE DONE!*

    *REGRETFULLY, IN THE LIGHT OF REASONABLE AND SOUND REFLECTION upon:*

    πŸ‘‰ *His* fluency of falsehoods,
    πŸ‘‰ *His* fear of criticism and responsibility,
    πŸ‘‰ *His* insistence on taking credit where credit is not due,
    πŸ‘‰ *His* deficit of emotion-regulation resulting in juvenile displays, personal attacks and insults unbecoming an adult,
    πŸ‘‰ *His* incumbency and his bid for reelection being void of any plan, agenda, mandate, message, or ideas,
    πŸ‘‰ *His* open threat to decline a peaceful transfer of power should he lose his bid for reelection,
    πŸ‘‰ *His* inability to maintain discretion on social media _and_
    πŸ‘‰ *His* increasingly odious and unstatesmanlike behavior that indicates a pathologically unstable personality such that:
    *President Donald Trump has indisputably forfeited the trust and the confidence of those government confrères in his charge that procure sensitive and secret knowledge of matters affecting national security they cannot in good confidence share with him — their President and Commander-in-Chief!*

    *THIS SITUATION* is unworkable, and gives rise to threats both domestic and foreign to the United States. *WE CANNOT AFFORD THE LUXURY OF BEING AFRAID!* Our moment, described as an β€œInflection Point”, has come calling and in this election year of 2020, we have something to do β€” Let this be _OUR_ remedy!

    *OUR NATION* imperfect, ever learning and self-correcting, possesses the keys to enjoy β€œlife, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”. Nevertheless there come, from time to time, challenges to this ideal that require remediation. In these times we shall insist that our citizenship be recognized and counted, uncontested!

    *AMERICA WILL NOT BE DISGRACED ANY LONGER!*

    *The case against the President is prima facie inasmuch as:*

    πŸ‘‰ *THIS PRESIDENT* has been derelict in his duties,
    πŸ‘‰ *THIS PRESIDENT* has undermined The Constitution of the United States,
    πŸ‘‰ *THIS PRESIDENT* has committed acts of human cruelty at our Nation’s southern border – potentially to include crimes against humanity,
    πŸ‘‰ *THIS PRESIDENT* has been impeached,
    πŸ‘‰ *THIS PRESIDENT* has been found and confirmed as having lied to the American people about the true nature of the seriousness of COVID-19,
    πŸ‘‰ *THIS PRESIDENT* has not achieved any tangible act toward the betterment of the Nation,
    πŸ‘‰ *THIS PRESIDENT* has withheld information he is required by law to produce,
    πŸ‘‰ *THIS PRESIDENT* has verbally insulted our Servicemen and Servicewomen in our Nation’s military – calling them β€œsuckers”,
    πŸ‘‰ *THIS PRESIDENT* has been curiously evasive amid investigations persuant to the nature of his relationship with the Russian President, Vladimir Putin,
    πŸ‘‰ *THIS PRESIDENT* has openly encouraged extreme street violence at the level of complicity,
    πŸ‘‰ *THIS PRESIDENT* has perverted the utility of America’s federal defense and peace-keeping forces by turning them against America herself!

    _This list of offenses, while not exhaustive, provides more than enough cause to pursue criminal charges!_

    *ALL OF THE ABOVE IS CLEAR, IS OBVIOUS, AND IS TRUE! AS WELL, IT IS KNOWN TO BE TRUE BY ALL BRANCHES OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT, BY THE FBI, BY THE UNITED STATES MILITARY, et al; AND BY THE PEOPLE OF THIS NATION!*

    *FOR PRESIDENT, DONALD TRUMP IS NOT QUALIFIED! ON THE CONTRARY, HE IS A MENACE TO THE PEACE!*

    *THEREFORE:*
    *IN ORDER TO RENDER THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT FAMILIAR AND PLEASANT TO THE PEOPLE RATHER THAN TERRIBLE AND UNRECOGNIZABLE*

    *WE SHALL* lawfully heed any required safety measures due to COVID-19 without protest or complaint to include wearing face coverings, gloves, and practicing social distancing. _And we shall do these things because as Americans, we care – above all – about the wellbeing of our fellow citizens._

    *AND IN RETURN*
    *WE SHALL NOT* tolerate any barriers, threats, obstructions, hindrances or intrigues of any kind by any party whether from inside the United Statesorabroadbydesignoreffectthat suppresses, deters, delaymanipulates,interrupts, or otherwise alters *OUR CIVIL RIGHT AND OUR CIVIC DUTY TO CAST OUR VOTE, INVIOLATE, AS IT IS GUARANTEED BY THE LAW OF THE LAND β€” ON OR BEFORE ELECTION DAY β€” TO REMOVE PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP AND HIS ADMINISTRATION AND REPLACE THEM WITH JOE BIDEN AND KAMALA HARRIS β€” IN THE NAME OF TRUTH, FOR THE SAKE OF JUSTICE, AND TO RESTORE THE PEACE!*

  15. Vote for Joe & Kamala, you Texas cowgirls!

  16. High voter turnout. A republican’s worst nightmare 😨

    • @Jasmany Foch
      In fact no.
      The problem in the case of Miami is the drinking water.
      It doesn’t make sense to build an aqueduct to Miami because of the distances.
      And without drinking water no one will build a dam and pumping stations, like in the Netherlands.

    • Republican here, i like it. I also understand how the electoral college works

    • @Josh Cappello we’re going to do away with the electoral college and guns and we’ll have IQ tests for voting. You may as well pack your knapsack and leave now.

    • @keith2092 typical new age dem, we dont like the system we need to change all the rules cuz were losing

    • @Josh Cappello here’s a little baby pineapple from Hawai’i for your fat leader. Next rally you go to, just pull this little pin on the top and hand it to him saying “Aloha from Hawai’i.” This little lever on the side does nothing–ignore it.
      Get back to me? πŸ™‚

    If Harris County has a very huge turnout and they aren’t meddled by the republicans then Dems have a pretty much high chance they win Texas

  20. Vote Americans, Biden/Harris and Blue all the way.
