69 comments

    1. @pigskiner4life funny how all these Republican states have these Democrat votes, how about we remove the federal representatives and senators immediately and not allow them a seat till this is audited for the 5th time

    2. @twt [1 5] 2 : Oh, come on ! Republicans don’t have a majority EVERYWHERE ! I do like your user name though, as I taught middle school math (retired now).

    3. @Gary Campbell “Republicans don’t have a majority” Yeah because of ballots without proof of photo id.

    1. @adam therolf Paul doesn’t care. He’s the type of person to say that gas prices went down under Biden. Maybe he doesn’t understand the volatility of basically every commodity, like gas.

    2. Yes we do! OMG…This admin is a complete disgrace. What depths will he go to divide and mislead our country with his outright lies and racism??? This batch of rotten eggs has GOT to go!

    1. @George drrxryikdoy oh but that is exactly what they want. They want us to assume a lot of things and we are Anti American if we question anything.

    2. Jesus is The Lord and Savior… He is The Son of God who was sent not to condemn the world…but that the world can be saved through Him. Jesus was crucified, was buried..and He rose the third day . .
      “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”
      Romans 10:9
      He took our punishment and paid the price for our sins on The cross
      Seek The Lord Jesus Christ and you will find Him ! . Please call upon The name of The Lord Jesus Christ Jesus loves you! He is returning soon..!!…
      Jesus is the Truth, the Way , and the Life….no one can go to the Father God except through Him
      With Love to all!
      And always, all the Glory to God

    3. Votes:
      Obama 69,000,000 Trump 74,000,000 Biden 81,000,000

      Bellwether
      Obama 18/19 Trump 18/19 Biden 1/19

      FL, OH, IA
      Obama won. Trump won. Biden lost.

      House seats
      Obama won. Trump won. Biden lost.

      Truth does not mind being questioned.
      A lie does not like being challenged.

      Democrats have sent an army of people to shut down audits.

      “Nothing to see here.”

      Dems shut down counting on election night in swing states when Biden is losing horribly.
      MILLIONS of “ballots” show up in the middle of the night in the swing states, then the next day democrats kick out legally allowed poll watchers and even cover the windows while they count them – and suddenly up to 700,000 spikes in counts 96%+ for Biden. Massive fraud, but of course they’ll say it’s legal while it’s on video of them pulling out suitcases of ballots from under tables after everyone else was told to leave and they start counting them, and on video the next morning of them kicking out poll watchers and covering up windows while they count them unverified by anyone but democrats.
      On live television it was shown how votes for Trump were being lowered in chunks of thousands again and again – many times Biden’s votes went up by the same amount. Millions when the night was over.
      Biden had a Freudian slip in October when he said “We’re in a situation where we have put together, and you guys did it for our administration — President Obama’s administration before this — we have put together I think the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics.” He wasn’t kidding.
      Chiara De Blasio, the young radical and police-hater, admitted in an interview that “we have the first female black Asian president” and that Joe Biden “was able to steal” the election — before correcting herself on the slip-up.

      Make no mistaken: enemies of America have taken over and will do anything they can to shut down any audits that will expose it.

    4. @ForumLight Right. Never mind Republicans own the supreme court.

      Nah. Trump’s a loser. Always will be.

  1. Who oversees & can “recalculate” votes is the most dangerous portion of many of these bills, so shouldn’t we beware distractions by the minutiae?

    1. Will no ID voting and no questioning the outcome, like in 2020 make voting better? Then they can count for days until they get the result they want like 2020.

    2. @Walter Heisenberg republican georgian governor said there was like no fraud lol. watttt… also is counting all the votes not necessary? that sounds so ignorant and dumb lol. you are literally contradicting yourself lmao?! they took longer to verify the votes. if there was real fraud it wouldnt be done by passing votes in after haha. esp not when republicans triple check EACH vote. Get a handle, dems didnt fuss for years on end about g bush my guy…

  2. Are there people who really believe that black/brown skin is an impediment to obtaining a photo I.D.?

    1. @A Risden You can get a replacement social security card easily. I just did it. Applied online, took 7 days. No problem. Free too.

    2. @Crfor Freedom we can’t have a full democracy in america until we democratize our economy and education systems(etc.). The economy is still run like its medieval times, the education system still runs like the gilded age, and everything else is still lagging behind.

      We democratized government, but we need to democratize the other parts of our lives. No longer under the outdated autocratic systems of the past.

  3. You need ID to drive , bank , get housing , work , buy alcohol, tobacco, weed where legal , you need ID for the vaccine. Why is expecting ppl to show ID to vote a problem?

    1. The ID is not the problem we already have ID laws for voting. The problem is having access to the polls to vote, having enough polls to vote, having machines that work, having the time to vote and having that vote not be changed by the legislature because they didn’t like how the majority voted.

    2. @Margarita Robertson “Threat to democracy”…another phrase overused by the left to the point of being laughable

    3. @Dizzy Duke Hi Dizzy Duke. A representative republic isn’t a true democracy. Dead Body Man is correct. Also It’s baked into the Pledge of Allegiance. …..”and to the Republic for which it stands”….. Constitutional Republic being another term for Representative Republic. Classifying American government as a democracy is just too much of a generalized description to be relevantly accurate. Democracy ends once the election ends on a federal level.

    4. Because voting is a constitutional right and having to show proof that your given this right to vote despite it saying clearly in the constitution itself, it’s kinda like double checking a study guide that your teacher already filled out to see if you got the answers right.

  4. I sure am glad this a constitutional republic instead of a democracy or this might be some sort of crisis.

    1. we can’t have a full democracy in america until we democratize our economy and education systems(etc.). The economy is still run like its medieval times, the education system still runs like the gilded age, and everything else is still lagging behind.

      We democratized government, but we need to democratize the other parts of our lives. No longer under the outdated autocratic systems of the past.

    2. Oh be quiet. Your “constitutional republic” is a form of *representative democracy*, exactly like like every other country in the world save the autocratic states.

    3. @Random 549 Gimme a break. Fox backtracked on the Dominion stuff, so did OANN and Newsmax. Why? If they had all this “evidence” to back up their Dominion nonsense they wouldn’t have had to retract their statements and issue an apology.

    1. @INCARNATE They tried to overthrow the government with a single 9mm pistol that was never drawn?

      Come up with a better story.

    2. @james caporale you got proof of that ONE man committing fraud? If so, please share it. We have proof by the thousands, Maricopa f*cked you. So much in fact that all the swing states that biden “won” in the middle of the night are now being audited, not recounted, but audited.

    3. @Cody Meyer You know, whoever told you that is dead wrong. Chauvin is 45, and it’s expected he’ll receive 12 years for both murder charges. The state is asking for more, though. But that doesn’t matter, even with 12 years for both murder charges, he’ll be 70 when released.

      And what does that have anything to do with you intentionally misrepresenting Trump’s quotes and being extremely selective about the things he said before the Capitol riot?

    4. @tabber87 Did they try and stop the government from doing their Constitutional duty?…That makes them first ballot hall of fame TRAITORS….But of course all loyal Americans already knew that when they endlessly protected traitor boy….So good to know he’s finally going to prison….Enjoy his REAL trials..

  5. Wait a minute.. are they trying to say that “black and brown voters” have issues voting because of their skin color???? This sounds like a statement that is gonna backfire hard. Unless there is someone willing to verify that it is harder to vote because of your skin color.. I feel like skin color shouldn’t matter for anything. Everyone is equal.

  6. First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win

    1. OMG…This admin is a complete disgrace. What depths will he go to divide and mislead our country with his outright lies and racism??? This batch of rotten eggs has GOT to go!

    2. @Random 549 If big tech can silence you, your voice was too small to matter anyway.

    3. @Random 549 cuz if you want your voice to be heard, no ban will stop you.

      I’ve been banned more times than I can count, and I’m still here/there/wherever they ban me.

    4. @Random 549 Yeah. Josh Hawley was whining about being “silenced” while posting on Twitter….linking to his book being sold on Amazon. Republicans are such drama queens…

    1. Needing an ID + vaccine passport to leave your home is acceptable, but needing an ID to vote is not. Democrats are either stupid, duplicitous, or both.

  7. They love to toss around the word “assualt” there is nothing wrong with this bill whatsoever

    1. Yes, you’re a representative democracy. Just like Mexico, Canada, every country in Europe and the rest of the world (except for the autocratic states).

  8. Lol let Biden come drive around in Texas like Kennedy did I’m sure us Texan’s wont miss him lol we never do

  9. How is this even considered a bad thing.. it holds accountability and credibility. This is ridiculous.
