    What has changed is they fear the voters.

  3. If you can’t change your policies to get more peoples votes you can always just make it harder so you win anyway.

  4. Moscow Mitch been panhandling from corporations his entire career. He needs to get out!

  5. All these voting rules in Georgia. Who’s going to pay hospital bills if people get sick waiting ? So if they take chairs & water with them they can ”’still”’ get sick waiting so long….Who will pay their hospital bills?

      So if they got sick on their own there at fault. If they still get sick I their own it’s the states fault. 🙄 Where do you people come from, your IP shows your not a BOT so are you just stupid?

  6. The yellow rose of texas goes beautifully with blue.

  7. Just say the word. I will leave ATT. I live in Texas

    This has been a Republican tactic for at least 40 years: Create a problem or hallucinate a problem that doesn’t exist and pound it into the minds of the voters and then claim that all you are doing is responding to the voters. Yes, Mr. O’Rourke, circular reasoning that a high school debate team would rip to smithereens.

  9. Dig a little deeper you”ll find the businesses that employ people of color in TEXAS for service jobs and farming jobs will also not allow those employees the opportunity to vote. They will threaten these people if they need to quit work early to go vote they will loose their jobs. Or demand overtime all the sudden near the voting date . A watch dog needs to be in place to catch them doing this
