  1. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again;
    Decisions are made by those who show up. No matter what it takes, get out and vote!
    2022 will be here before you know it.

    1. Why would people bother to turn up and stand for hrs in line knowing their vote could be overturned… is that what republicans are relying on? But that may not bode well for republican voters either..

    2. We must support those Democratic legislators who are fighting against Republican voter suppression! And at the first opportunity, vote all Republicans out!

    3. @Angela Groves It is simply another form of Voter Intimidation… I’m not saying that it will work at the State level, as there will be endless “re-counts, audits and so-called forensics”, along with continuous Lawsuits… but there will be lower Voter turnout, and THAT is what the RepubliCons want.

    4. @INCARNATE even tho what you say might be true, we cannot let that possibility discourage us from raising our voices by voting.
      Discouraging voter turn out will create a self fulfilling prophecy for what the corrupt GQP want. We must always vote and make our voices too loud to silence.

    5. They took the guns in New Zealand and now they’re talking about doing raids on houses that didn’t take that experimental drug

  2. THE GOP IS DONE!!!!!!!!! GIVE UP WHILE YOU CAN!!!! DEMOCRATS 2022, 2024 AND FOREVER!!!!!!! BABYLON WILL BURN! DON’T GET CAUGHT IN THE FIRE!!!!!!

    1. @Jeffrey Xu Democrats have been backing the “blue Texas” back every 4 years. And every time it has failed to turn. The Hispanics are starting to trend right. And you and me can both agree, that Hispanics make a good chunk of Texas up.
      Besides, a majority of people that are moving to Texas are Republican.

    2. Thanks for proving that this struggle isn’t about “democracy” like the Democrats claim, but about “power”, only power.

    3. @Jeffrey Xu Not just ‘minorities’. People who care about Democracy and good government vote Democrat.

  3. Go Texas Democrats, go! Manchin and Sinema appear to have sold their souls. It’s gunna take even greater record numbers of people getting out to vote in the mid-terms.

    1. At least this time the roar of the voting crowd will stick like glue – let’s put an end to GQP once and for all

  4. Way to go Texas Democrats walk every day if you have to and counter with a law suits on them for this move then lock in in what’s right for voting, make sure the mail in ballots are included and that it can take weeks to count the votes.

    1. Agreed so true let that fight spread throughout the whole Democratic party they have the majority

    2. @eltorocal your comments doesn’t illustrate that you have any idea of what’s going on.
      Facts are things leftist and Democrats listen to, not just critiques from random idiots online. If you used some facts, then your comments might mean something instead of just being trash takes.

  5. Texas remember that it is your turn to go Blue it really is time to get you in there it has been since 1992.

  6. They need to stop targeting that one county in Arizona too I have never heard so many threats out of politics then I have heard from Republicans in the last 4 years in my whole life in politics ever not even as a child because we watched the news then too. How do they just get away with threatning voters or other politicians without being charged for harrassment is beyond me.

    1. Corrupt people in local offices that never usually have the ability to show that much power. The AZ GOP is kind of special in its crazy, and that “one county” is HUGE, with more than half the state’s people in it, stretching about a 3-4 hour drive to cross. AZ is a big state as far as square mileage goes, but it only has about 15 counties, a dozen or so of which have relatively small populations.

  7. It’s about time! Geeze a Lou! What took them so long! He’s not exactly Saint Martin.

  8. Continue the good fight you have my support against these trump GOP cultists and your fight against their voter suppression bills. I just wish the other 46 states that the GOP have gerrymandered their control preventing the true American Party the fight and the voice they needed to stop their efforts in those states.

  9. The more the GOP are trying, the more voters there are going to be to vote them out. When people are trying to make them stop from voting, the people WILL try even harder to make sure they vote!

  10. I thought there was nothing wrong with the voting in TX. Why does it need to be overhauled? Why fix something if it’s not broken?

    1. Not to mention that the only ppl who even tried to commit election fraud in TX was Republicans.. they got caught too, showing that the system works

  11. I wonder what would happen if the Supreme Court wasn’t enforcing voter supression laws?!?

    1. If the GOP could completely disassemble our government (God knows they are trying) the court system would go with it. Their base doesn’t seem to understand that the second amendment would get tossed out with all their other rights too, but there it is.

  12. Let’s start with opening investigations into treasonous GOP senator’s participation in insurrection. Charge them, recall. Got video’s, interview’s & you’ve/we got #’s. Majority registered voter’s support!

  13. Give Texas back to Mexico.
    We don’t need these anti-Americans suppressing True Americans’ rights.

  14. Just got back from a Texas vacation. Lots of good people among a ton of racists. It’s rather creepy.

  15. If anybody can’t under stand how bad this is, they don’t need to be representing anybody in congress.
