    How can 1 party oversee votes in an election ? That is completely non-democratic & one would believe , unconstitutional .

  2. The Supreme Court can…… oh wait, cancel that

    Get used to these words “Banana Republic”

    • How could it be anything else with president Potato Head in the Whitehouse?

      In the immortal words of the bard ” a pox on all your houses” , all politicians on both sides are morally corrupt with their noses well and truly in the trough .They are not their to “represent the people” just the interests of those with money
      Your founding fathers would be ashamed and are turning in their graves

      @Mark Cicero you should ask yourself why you’re so afraid of Democracy

    • It’s what the establishment dems have wanted for years!

  4. brilliantly said, ty both! and yes to suing them, AG garland needs to step in too! remember rfk in the 1960s!

    States already require voter identification including signed affidavits, signature verification and biographical information. GQP have abandoned Democracy in favor of Authoritarian rule. Do not let the fascists win.

    Article 1 Section 4 of the Constitution ‘Congress may at any time by Law make or alter such regulations (affecting elections for Senators and Representatives) Pass HR 1 For the People’s Act already

    They’re scared and I’m glad they’re scared they should be scared

  9. GOP: “We’ve learned our lesson on Jan 6.”
    – That democracy is sacred and needs to be protected at all costs?
    “No, how to corrupt it in a more perfect way.”

    The USA has been rated as a ‘Failed Democracy’.

    The experiment is over. You can’t rely on Congress to be on the side of the people.

    “We the people” are the first and mot important words of the US constitution.
    Court challenges take years to finalize and that can be after democracy has been eradicated.

  12. So the republicans have declared themselves the rulers of elections in this country…sounds like an authoritarian stance to me…guess they all drank the losers kool aid

    The picture of Kemp signing , surrounded by 6 older white men, says it all about racist America. Democracy has disappeared in America

  14. It is laughable that USA is declared as the greatest Democracy in the world when individual States are able to suppress voters this blatantly as in Georgia to stop voters from one party to vote.

    Yes it is a sad day. I thought the 1964 voting rights act was it. But, I guess we need to fight for our right to vote again.

    • As long as you have extreme right wing politicians in charge anywhere this fight will be a never ending saga

  16. Federal election laws is an absolute must, now.
    The slow coup has moved to state level.

  17. “…we can’t count on the courts” – scary how matter-of-factly he said it!

  18. THE GOP has one message: we will make laws to make this a country that only GOP can manipulate, control, supress and intimidate in order to stay in power. Colorblind and colorless driven.

  19. The filibuster must go now for Democrats to pass the voting rights act S1 now.

    I want this to go to the Supreme Court and settle this once and for all.
