  1. VOTE, VOTE, VOTE, VOTE, VOTE!! Vote like your life depends on it, “Because it does.”VOTE BLUE, VOTE BIDEN/HARRIS 2020!! Vote blue from local elections to the Presidency and bring back empathy, decency, leadership, and patriotism. Vote no matter what. If you receive a mail ballot fill out, sign, seal, add postage if needed, and mail the next day (If you are in Pennsylvania don’t forget your privacy envelope or North Carolina a witness signature) or take to a secure lock box or to an elections office. WHATEVER HAPPEN THIS YEAR VOTE! No matter what happens ignore Trump’s propaganda and VOTE, VOTE, VOTE!! vote.org or (your state).gov or votinginfoproject.org all these sites are tools to help you vote in your state in this up coming election.

  2. If a Democrat wins the Senate in Mississippi, the GOP will be done like dinner

    Vote as early, safely & peacefully as possible (vote.org), complete the census (census.gov) and help two people outside your household do the same. Ben Franklin after the Constitutional Convention in 1778 is believed to have been asked, “Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?” With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded, “A republic, if you can keep it.”

  4. Praying for you~
    For better Mississippi and for America without trump and the GOP👍👌🙏🙏😇🙏🙏

  5. VOTE BLUE ALL THE WAY. LETS MAKE IT A BLUE LANDSLIDE! Stay safe and stay and stay well.

  6. It will soon be 2021. It’s time that southern states find something else to be proud of other than slavery and losing wars.
    Vote 💙

  9. Racism is theorised to be a symptom of mental illness by researchers-Google the studies. Also made our people vulnerable to foreign Intelligence services manipulation against their own country. Yep-racism. A stupid idea for SO many reasons.

      Kay Clark: lndeed. The very notion that it is okay to hate and discrimination against anyone on the basis of color– a phenomenon that neither the hater nor the hated had any choice in the creation of said color is an anomaly that defies logic. The only plausible conclusion is that something is seriously amiss in the noggin’. Otherwise whoever created this firmament would in His/Her infinite wisdom have provided separate sources of oxygen, sunlight, rain etc,. Just saying …

  10. Vote Blue and be a free American folks. Come on Mississippi you can be all you can be!!! So vote Blue

  11. If black voters are doing mail-in ballots you need to make sure they have completed the ballot fully and correctly. Some of them, particularly the ones whose circumstances are difficult, may need help in how to complete a ballot. There are reports of a higher proportion of black voters having their mail-in ballots rejected because they are not completed properly.

      10 2 20 Hey@Alison B, No, you are NOT a racist. You are a patriot! I am very familiar with the issues in Mississippi. It’s systemic & the animosity towards the poor in the South (in general), has been going on for a long long time. Stay safe, keep calm, & be well. v

    • Virginia Tyree Agreed. I have never donated to a political campaign in my life. This election I have donated to Dem candidates all over the country. I am engaged like never before. Times are shifting, America is going to be okay. We will just cherish and appreciate her MUCH MORE now. Same to you, be well.

      10 2 20 Hey again @Classy Lady, Me too. The division is killing the country. The October surprise has arrive & NO one can predict what will happen. I think it’s a bit of poetic justice that Nancy could be the President-maybe, if both Pence & drump become incapacitated. I came back from Russia years ago & kiss the ground when I arrived. I do not take the hard-fought fights to keep the USA free! for granted. Thank you, I’m good. A little down @ times about all that’s going on, especially all the souls gone; may they RIP. v

    • Virginia Tyree Well stay hydrated and take some time out to just breathe. It’s a lot on all of us. We have been abused and neglected for several years now. We are in a battle but we will win. That I’m sure of. We have warriors in Biden and Harris. 💪🏾💛

      10. 2 20 Hey again @Classy Lady, Agreed; we’ll win! Good over evil. I am an optimistic-realist; hope for the best & plan for the worse. As my momma (a proud Mississippian) says: Honey-child, this too shall pass…v

  12. t’rump has the corona.
    Maybe he should inject some of that bleach! 🤔😅😂🤣

      Trump, his wife, and Aide have the Coronavirus. He was just mocking Biden the other night on the debate stage for wearing a mask so big you couldn’t see his face. It shows this virus doesn’t discriminate, it doesn’t care if you Dems or Republican, if you person of color or white, if you’re male or female, if you’re rich or poor. This virus will strike anyone, that’s why it’s important to do as the Scientific and Doctors say, keep your distance and wear your mask.

    I watched the debate in 2018 Cindy Hyde-Smith is uniquely stupid.

  14. America is

    23 in education.
    37 in healthcare.
    34 in raising family index.
    No high-speed train.
    Highest number of homeless people.
    Highest number of incarcerated people.
    78% of people live paycheck to paycheck.

    Stock market is not economy of Americans! Where 90% of money belongs to top 10% of the population, it’s wallet for the rich.

    Let’s talk like adults, instead of name calling.

    I have left the proof on my playlist, if you would like to check!

    Let’s make our country better together….

  15. Every republican president has given a recession but this takes the cake 🎂
