      If it helps just one person feel safe enough to cast their vote, then it’s worth doing.
      Plus…It might trigger some despicable maga snowflakes too…(that’s a bonus).

      If you intend to vote in-person, but you’re worried about feeling threatened by Trump’s hired thugs.. WEAR RED, VOTE BLUE…..!!!!!!


      P.S…To all the idiotic Trump supporters who’ve been responding to this message……

  3. vote November 3rd…
    vote for sanity…

      Agreed! Most democrat voters were born out of wedlock and didn’t have their father around, that’s why they can relate to Barry (no dad)Obama and Colin(no dad)kappernik!

      Oh we’re voting and it’s for Trump

    • I’m voting this week. Don’t wait till the 3rd if you can help it, let’s make it very clear who the majority is. Last time 3 million votes didn’t seem to be enough of a win to get rid of trump. Let’s have 30 million this time!

    • @Jeffrey Dahmer but, I-come-from-a-dysfunctional-family-have-an-overinflated-ego-and-cheated-on-all-my-wives-prump is ok? stfu you I-go-to-church-and-then-I-f***-my-sister moron.

  4. Wasn’t it less than 4 years ago when Republicans spent a year defending their stance on never nominating a SCOTUS during an election year? Didn’t Mitch McConnell make that a rule in 2016? We are at the point now, where ‘Hypocrite’ and ‘Republican’, have the same meaning in the Dictionary.

    • Do you think dems would have not done the same?. NONSENSE!

    • @Stay Hungry Well we know who didn’t do it and now who is trying to do it now. Don’t we liar.

    • @Stay Hungry Well, History has shown us they haven’t when offered opportunities in the past.

    • Gnirol Namlerf | October 12, 2020 at 1:08 PM | Reply

      @Stay Hungry Show me when Dems have held up a Supreme Court nominee for eight months because it was an election year, and then in precisely the same situation four years later, only even closer to the election, sometime when a majority of current Democrats were already in the Senate, not 1827, confirmed a new justice, and I’ll believe they might do it again. Otherwise, it’s like accusing Pres. Trump of starting a cold war with Putin because two Republicans, Eisenhower and Nixon fought a cold war with the Russians in the 50’s and 60’s or wanting to revive Reconstruction in the South because Ulysses S. Grant, a Republican, supported it. How in the world is that relevant to what’s happening today?

    • @The Tweatles “Defunding” is not a Democratic proposal. “Defunding” is only a word that anti-change people use, to create a false perception of the Democrats. “Defunding” implies ” that all funds would be removed ….In reality, it should be perceived as a necessary change, which would facilitate a much safer environment for the American citizen. Study,…. plan ….execute plan….., simple.

      @IAM 007 : Being an ardent Social Democrat philosophically for over 45 yrs.fascists & commie communists have been my enemy my whole life & i don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. I was born from behind the Iron Curtain. My parents escaped with 3 yr. old me in tow in 1962 & I cherish my freedom & ability & right to express myself. In a fascist totalitarian state we couldn’t communicate like we are right now & one or both of us would be persecuted, imprisoned & ultimately put to death. So therefore “Death to Fascism” in any form & “May Liberalism Prevail.”

      Radio Queen Bee well Forbes has him listed at 3.1billion so there is that

    • Bunker Baby dRumph | October 12, 2020 at 1:20 PM | Reply

      Ivan Ivanoff/Tam Eliza : Google/Wikipedia has Putins net worth listed at anywhere from $100,000,000,000.00 – $200,000,000,000.00 which would make tRump a chump in comparison by your shallow definition. Besides these 2 criminally corrupt clowns have not produced anything of value but misery & you would blow either one for a pittance & a crumb. You are a 2 bit cheap tRump/Putin tRoll.

      BIDEN IS A DESPICABLE HUMAN BEING : He voted in favour of Crime bill( thousands of black sent to jails for minor offences),Nafta (millions of blue collars jobs lost),Iraqi wars (thousands of our marines killed or maimed/500 000 Arabs turned into ketchup by our airstrikes). Biden has no project,no ideas. He only ran out of pride. He knew Hunter’s shady dealings will be brought to light if he ran. But he didn’t care. He’s too vain. He wants to become president even at the cost of dragging through the mud his own son. BIDEN IS ROTTEN THROUGH AND THROUGH

    • @Maxime De Winter the part you miss however is that Trump is terrible and literally you would make a better Potus. A N Y O N E but Dotard, i mean come on …😬

  9. They must believe that not only has Trump lost the White House but also the Senate

  10. She is being presented as a “Saint”. Not many saints take away healthcare.

    The GOP can rush thru the Supereme Court nominees, but can’t help the American people. Again the GOP is out to hurt the American people. Smh
    God Bless America

    Early voting open up today for Georgia and at the local library near my house, its a line.
    Vote vote vote, the lines will be long but, please please vote, vote in person if you can.

  12. I don’t think the Republicans realize what rushing this means. It means NONE of them think Trump will win. If they were so sure he’d win, that there “won’t be a transition of power but a continuation” then there’s no need to rush because he could appoint the nominee next term. And I don’t think it’s right they can focus on this and push it through but not focus instead on how to actually help their people with Stimulus. They can’t argue that they are following the will of the people by going back on their words from 2016 because 55% of Republicans polled said that they wanted stimulus over a SCOTUS hearing.

    focus on what is real..
    not just health.
    focus on a president who breaks the law..
    all sorts of heads of states and federal offices holding up his crime

  14. The nominee should withdraw herself from the controversy.

  15. Republicans are stealing government making themselves voter immune.

  16. Politicians appointing members of the judiciary is the most stupid part of the American constitutional system. Judges should be appointed by a independent panel of active and retired high ranking judges and other legal professionals, not highly partisan politicians.

    • @Jeff Gibson Deaf, dumb, and blind!

    • The Founders addressed that problem. Even if it is a corrupt process, the corruption evens out over time as elected parties trade places. Same as gerrymandering. It looks corrupt, but it does even out. Understand the concept? My generation understood that when we were 12 years old.

    • @Joker Smith That’s the battle cry of the right. “Love it or leave it”. They don’t get the whole work in progress thing. Or that to question and protest IS american. Very sad we’ve come to this point.

    • I posted something similar a while ago – though never got the tirade of abuse that you are sadly seeing.

      The american constitution is a mockery, and exactly what I would expect from a country that has no idea of social responsibility

      LIGHTxHEAVEN: THANK YOU!!! BEAUTIIFUL PERFECT WORDS. THE U.S. CONSTITUTION was first written by the Ojibway Nation, before the white man came here. They were wiser and KNEW the problems. They had just exactly what has been handed down to us. The Checks and Balances, the Federal leadership with States (TRIBES) also having their own power too. Just the same. They gave our Thomas Jefferson **PERMISSION TO COPY IT ** for his new country. We need to do some work to make our Constitution safe from crooks. They never imagined that. We have seen it. GONE SOON!!! Thank GOD!

  17. Quote from Tom Tillis from today’s hearing:
    “However, when the minority can’t get their bad policies passed in Congress, they turn to the courts to demand that judges interpret the law, not as written, but as they prefer.” 

    The gop tried and failed multiple times over 2 years to scrap the ACA and are now trying to use the SC to do what ‘they couldn’t get passed in Congress’.

      T Electronix: Very good point. Just more Republican hypocrisy, and frankly destroying the value of language in human communication. When everything can be boiled down to eight adjectives, no one can communicate anything but their own feelings very generally, as if individual feelings are what should count when you are making policy for the whole nation. Give the GOP more years in power and they will turn on their supporters, whom they have used but never respected.

    • I heard that some senators have voted against ACA 8 or 9 times already

  18. If term limits don’t come to mind here, call a Psychiatrist!

  19. America is the only country in the world that doesn’t give a crap about Their own people and try taking away their Health care
    This has got to be one that
    Makes America sit-up and listen

    • Diane O'Donovan | October 12, 2020 at 12:39 PM | Reply

      You’re absolutely right. Seen in perspective, this attitude of the GOP towards the American people puts it out of court as part of any free, democratic country. They rule like the royal family of Saudi Arabia.

    • I would say that it is the only country in “the west” or first world country

      I could be wrong but the rest of us do have universal healthcare

    • The federal government has NO JURISDICTION over your crybaby healthcare. It’s in the Constitution.
