  1. The GOP has no chance unless they rig the system and they know it!

  2. Only it HAS for decades, ever hear of Gerrymandering?

    When will the GOP learn this doesn’t work against a certain class of voters !

      @David Eby Okay buddy. But he lost. His job was so tremendous you’re spouting off now ! LOL 👍

      @David Eby A famous sports announcer use to sing this in the last minutes of a NFL game, “turn out the lights, the party’s over!” 😂😂

    • @Mac Daddy 50 I know it’s looking bleak,but the demonrats won’t be in power for long.Most Demonrat voters are having buyers remorse and it’s getting worse by the day. Creepy Joe is making you look dumb.

      @David Eby Buddy gets grip on reality. That’s Tucker Carson talking point and Fox & Friends. Also, I am an independent voter. Not everyone you comment about is a “demonrat.” Seriously speak on substance and try to stay on point. That rhetoric didn’t win the past election!
      Trump got his twitter account back and look how quiet he has been as a private citizen. That should tell you something. Just like he got vaccinated in secrecy before leaving the WH. That should also tell you something.

    The right would do away with free elections in a heartbeat if they could. They’re hungry for fascism.

    Stop the steal. This should be thrown on the cheating faces of GOP.

  6. When Michael Steele speaks, I listen. Always.

    Voters, FIGHT against these restrictions! We, the voters, will win!

    Voting should be at least as easy as gun ownership….

    If the GOP don’t like votes they should GTFO of politics

  10. There is a growing army of activists like Stacy Abrams who will be leading a grass roots awareness campaign to offset this pathetic and repugnant behaviour of a desperate GOP.

      @Craig Norris Yes, rigging the election in Georgia is an old story.

    • @Craig Norris : Context is important.
      Take a look at the YouTube clip titled,
      ” Stacy Abrams ends bid for Georgia governor ” in which she ” accepted ” that Kemp would be Governor, based on the math and lack of a remedy to contest the many deliberately placed obstacles Georgians faced and how they affected the outcome. It is this, that she would not concede to, as you will see if you are willing to take the time to listen to what she has to say.
      Her speech which I think she made a week to ten days after the election is a little less than 12 minutes and well worth the watch to anyone who gives importance to the issues she raises and should get wide exposure. In it she articulates the issues intelligently and in detail. It is, in my view a very positive contribution and clearly one which will continue and is necessary. Particularly in light of the GOP launching around 250 attempts in numerous states across the country in recent days, aimed at legislating for greater restrictions on voting in ways and in areas that will benefit them in the upcoming midterms and 2024.
      Personally I think much of their effort will backfire, as it is clearly recognised as a transparent effort to disenfranchise and create difficulties for voters in districts they see as threatened. Most people I know are utterly disgusted with their antics and I’m an ex Republican voter.
      There is another way open to them. Put up good policies and candidates capable of working intelligently, across the aisle to benefit the country and let the American people vote them in on demonstrated merit.
      The Republican Party at present is divided and the rot that has been growing inside it is now on the surface for all to see and there is no quick fix.
      I certainly won’t be supporting what i currently observe with my vote anytime soon.

    • @Craig Norris
      They should have let her win. If they could’ve foreseen her fury by turning out minority voters to abate the reelection of Trump, I’m positive they’d would have let her win.

    They rigged it. Projected what they were doing and still lost.


  13. 😆and killing their voters with covid-19 not helping either.

    Trump: No one knows rigging the election better than me

  16. I hope that these Republican attempts to suppress voting draws more attention to their dirty tricks and only motivates more people to figure out how to make their vote count.

  17. American memories only last a news cycle. How else would the Republican Party still have voters?

  18. The effort to suppress voters is shameful. If we actually had a supreme court, the GOP wouldn’t get away with it.

      We do. Even though 5 are ultraconservative, they are Constitutionalists about precedent. All were decisive about dismissing 45’s pet lawsuits. The last three suits? rejected because whoever brought the suit had no standing to do so. A start!

    • Maybe Sheldon’s spotlight on dark money in the judiciary and the expectations of their donors for a quid quo pro will make all those judges that may be likely to support these voting bills think twice
      The public will be watching them carefully just maybe they would value their credibility and reputations more than appeasing their donors
      There should be a law to cause them to declare a conflict of interest and recuse themselves in these type of cases

    • John DiGiacomo | March 17, 2021 at 7:15 AM | Reply

      Amanda without Trump’s three appointees they voted for Citizens United, and voted to weaken the voting rights act. The current composition of the court will be worse.

  19. gerrymandering isn’t enough – there is no message, other than cheatin’

  20. It’s their only path now, and they aren’t hiding it now at all.The party is damaged divided goods right now and they know it.They realize this and are worried.
