  1. vote early or on November 3rd…
    vote for real integrity…
    and basic human decency…

  2. 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… ..

  3. Remember, Remember, The Third of November, to Flush All The Turdz Away

  4. There’s nothing Dems can do to stop it, so they need to stay out of the GOP’s petri dish and not catch covid. Joe needs to pack the courts & stop letting them steal seats in the future.

    • Joe Biden is the presidential candidate for the Democrats. *FACT 😆

      Are you even American?

    • @SoCal Surfer16 Sharks gotta eat too.

    • If as expected Democrats gain full control of the Senate and can’t pass healthcare changes that are not challengeable in the courts, knowing what they know now, then the Democrats are also after your healthcare. Fix what we have then try to get your plan through or reduce the current plan if you are trying to get reelected in a red state. But I won’t be surprised if things are as messed up in 4 years because I could see progressives going my way or the highway like Democrats are doing now with the 2nd relief package, it will be beyond me caring at that point.

    • They can stop it. Impeach Trump. Impeach Barr. Just don’t show up. They won’t. They rather use this to cynically get money and votes.

  5. November 3rd: Judgement Day.

    Get ready, Troompa Loompa.

  6. There is NO way the Republicans would push someone forward unless she will support their positions.
    Also, the hasty pus is like Kavanaugh on speed. Is there something about her they don’t want to be found until too late?
    Their actions raise the questions….

  7. 65 plus of America believes in a woman right to chose

  8. Graham, Cruz and Moscow Mitch have proven that the word of a Republican, is worth about as much as a diploma from Trump University. They are both equally worthless. Their word is their CON.

    So after Republicans broke their own rules and went back on their word about picking a Supreme Court Justice during an election year, when millions of Americans have already voted, Dems have every right to pack the court. Republicans have absolutely no room to talk. Republicans made a promise to the American people, and they broke that promise without even blinking an eye or giving it a 2nd thought. So If Dems decide to pack the court, republicans have no one to blame but themselves. Because it didn’t have to be this way. All republicans had to do, was honor the promise they made. In other words, do the right thing.

    • Agree completely, they made a rule about appointing a SC JUDGE in an election year , then broke there own ruling! So the rules are flexible , OK DEMS let’s get flexible !

  9. By breaking their own rules and going back on their word, Republicans are giving Dems a green light to pack the Supreme Court. I love it!!!!😆 👏👏👏

    • You are just a shill for the narrative, echoing the mindless drivel of the psychotic left. Well at least you didn’t roast my CPU with one of the novels you’re renowned for, so thank you. As I have told you before, fiction really isn’t my genre. Hey, why did you remove your profile pic? Was it because you have a face made for radio, David? You certainly spew the lies of Mephisto. Be proud!

  10. And senate still owns the majority so she will be confirmed no matter what.

  11. We have a PANDEMIC and the WH has offered NOTHING to help the American people BUT… this seems to be more important than WE THE PEOPLE….

  12. this is the culmination of what republicans have been trying to do for over a decade. Go back and read what the lawyer Gerry Spence wrote.


    • Fun fact: The polls in 2016 weren’t inaccurate. They were actually quite accurate. The polls predicted that Clinton would win by 3.9 points, she actually won the popular vote by 1.8 points. Pretty close. Trump just won the right states.

  14. Kavanaugh lied under oath about the most stupid 💩-
    why is he still sitting in his chair voting on anything.

  15. Barrett is a right wing Catholic that follows white evangelical ideology and history shows that LIBERAL really means liberated from white supremacist Christianity Ideology

    Absolutely no one that is rolling with Drumpf could have a single shred of decency!

    Back you go America, you’re already decades behind the rest of the developed world, another century or two and you’ll again be burning old ladies for being witches.

    How many true Christian Trumpublicans does it take to change a light bulb?

    None. Because it’s impossible to be a true Christian and support Trump.

  19. ACB can’t be trusted as an impartial judge. She should have recused herself by now but she did not, based on her biased stance in the healthcare, another hypocrite, a false pro-lifer. First she was complacent in Trump’s “no mask” nomination ceremony, where she didn’t express any concern about the coronavirus infection. Now here, not refusing herself, she wants to cast her strong image of judgeship? How disgraceful. The people do not want any judge who agrees with Trump who has tried to remove what the people needed and wanted to have: ACA coverage.

  20. Republicans – “It’s very important that we hurry and confirm this judge right now BEFORE the election…………before the election that we claim we’re going to win.”
