    1. Quit pitting US against each other, wasting our time and money !!! !! When is CHINA going to be brought to JUSTICE FOR UNLEASHING A DEADLY VIRUS on US!!!

    1. @Jubilant Vision Sure it can just eliminate mail in voting and increase require IDs for voting and total vote should decrease by 10 or 12% which enough for Republicans to win state wide

    2. @Susan De La Torre It’s not about race your all democrats you don’t deserve to cost Donald Trump another election.

    3. @sonia jules the day Trump is brought to justice for leading a terrorist group to storm the capital after knowing telling proven lies to the American public.

      remember the lie he told about covid19 being a hoax after admitting on tape that it was real and airborne?
      remember when trump failed to contain the virus and took measures to stop other leaders from taking precautions thus the country being forced to shut down.

  1. There are no consequences for suppressing the vote. Suggest we roll it into a conspiracy and ‘Go RICO’ on everyone that even considers these regressive acts.

    1. @J Groovy btw …I see why you are confused … Rudy(Trump ) only filed 3 cases ..no court would here hense …force to present at Election issues hearing

    2. @J Groovy By now you have watched Vedio starting at Time Stamp 12: 24 … Question , how many times would say same ballot was counted 1000’s of times? …I have many more examples if interested …if not interested ….vade in pace puer meus( Go in peace my child )

    3. COVID is CCP’s BioWeapon, search risk-life-flee-china virologist @DrLiMengYAN1(twitter) and her gene evidence reports, get a Gene guy you TRUST(not the famous ones on TV) to verify her reports, she has waken the right(she had to talk with the right 1st since the right was in power), help her waken the left!!

      PS:why CCP didn’t allow wuhan people go anywhere in china, but allowed them to go overseas?

    4. @Daniel Morse So, you audit of the machine, look at how a voter voted, and it says that one voter voted 1000 times?! Voting machines will only register one ballot per person. Jeez, that’s common sense. They were HAND RECOUNTED, and 99% accurate. You folks are mind-numbingly irrational! Are you saying POLL WORKERS hatched this plan to stand there and keep feeding the same ballots in? At ALL of the battleground county polling sites? Poll workers? Right there on camera, in front of the observers?? Pure nonsense. I guess if Trump had overturned the results, Biden could then just say the same thing about Trump – that Republicans cheated, and just ignore the recounts and court rulings, right? What’s the difference? Think, McFly.

    1. @Fay Maye the vote was counted in Georgia 3 times with basically the same result. How many times do they have to count the votes for people who are sore about the election to be satisfied that there was no widespread voter fraud?!

    2.

    3. this country’s justice system was built on racism , white supremacy, and oppressing others to hold power and privilege.

      this is basic knowledge that’s documented history. this is white most do not trust caucasians. when you show a documented lifetime on earth as terrorists then try and white wash school history books i can see why

    4. Focus on the 44,000,000 who are right now 16 to 26 years old in the USA who can be voting in 2022, if they understand THEY CAN CAUSE CHANGE by voting out bad politicians and voting in good politicians.
      A great deal of this voter suppression during 2020 to 2022 is actually focused on shutting out the MASSIVE young voter influence.
      Mentor them. Today’s 14 year olds will almost all be old enough to vote in 2024. There will be 36,000,000 in 2024 who are 18 to 26 years old. That is enough to tip any election one way or the other.

    1. @Kamala Lama-lama-ding-dong Most of the democratic world are the wealthy nations. You really have no idea about the world outside of your trailer park do you? Try reading something other than social media, you know like a book. Maybe even a book about something important and not porn or fantasy. Ask a friend to help with the big words and difficult ideas.

    2. @Cecil Brisley isn’t this the pot calling the kettoe black? Judging here on social media with your smug little attitude as if you know about the world from the books you read and I don’t know anything from living in it. Stop being such an introvert and go experience the world outside of your books. You’ll learn so much more

    1. @Anthony Inyang in Canada, if someone is working on an election day, their employer is required to give them the chance to leave and go vote.

      You guys celebrate democracy more than any other democratic nation on earth. Surely you have that rule in place?

    2. Maybe Sunday is a day set aside by the Constitution as being a Federal day off…maybe? You know, the supreme law of the land? Do you know? Rules should make some kind of sense. Some actually do.

    3. @Challenger 50 The reason people vote on Sunday is because they work 6 days a week. Republicans know that low income families have jobs that they must take time off to go vote & their pay will be docked. That’s the reason for fewer voting sites & making people wait all day in lines to vote. Many can’t afford to lose a days pay to go vote. People in higher paying jobs have no problem getting time off to vote and do not lose income when they go to vote.
      That’s why in the absence of having a national day off to vote, Saturdays, Sundays and evening hours are so important. It gives Americans who dk nof have 9 to 5 jobs an opportunity to vote without losing pay.

    4. @BodyShop Laboratories have you read the Constitution? it says nothing about Sunday being day off. People still work shifts on Sundays. Voting isn’t work. Many people actually want Election Day as national holiday, so it would be a real day off

  2. Eliminating Sunday voting? In Germany and in France voting is always on a Sunday – because most people don’t have to go to work … simple. US is weird

    1. @Exquisite Corpse wrong, they are required to allow you time off to vote, they are not required to pay you for taking that time off.

    2. @Bender Senate The rest of the world has benefitted from the USA not being an obsolete system by forcing the issue of human rights to the front. Let’s remember where the UN came from. It came from no other country…nor could it.

    3. @Live And Inspired Poor people who work can still vote. This is a false narrative. Some of us have struggled with menial jobs and still managed to vote. I have voted even when I had a job that didn’t even cover utilities. It is a matter of priorities.

  3. No matter what us Georgians are going to vote . We have the numbers now n we are the majority our voices will continue to be heard.

    1. @Bimbo Baggins absolutely…… Your absolutely RIGHT. It’s CRAZY to see these ppl believing , truly believing their doing the right thing and it’s sad to see ppl get fed this propoganda from the news telling ppl it has SOMETHING to do with race when no one else cares or even notices what color anyone is…. But ppl buy into this BULLSHIT

  4. Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: “The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.
    Everything they do is done for people to see: They make their phylacteries wide and the tassels on their garments long; they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; they love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and to be called ‘Rabbi’ by others.
    “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers. And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. Nor are you to be called instructors, for you have one Instructor, the Messiah. The greatest among you will be your servant. For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted”.

    You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything, in Heaven above or in the Earth beneath, or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents up to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.
    “If my people who are called by my name, humble themselves and pray, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, I will hear from Heaven, will forgive their sins, and will heal their land.”

    And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

    This, then, is how you should pray:

    Our Father in heaven,
    hallowed be your name,
    your kingdom come,
    your will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven.
    Give us today our daily bread.
    And forgive us our debts,
    as we also have forgiven our debtors.
    And lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from the evil one.

    For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

    “Matthew 5-7 NIV Bible Gateway”, we can use google search.
    These are the teachings,
    The Righteousness of our Lord Jesus Christ our God.
    REPENT, and start doing what is right.
    If you abide my teachings, you are really my disciples; then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

    A time is coming and has now come, that the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and Truth. God is Spirit, so his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and Truth; they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.

    In the New Heaven and New Earth,
    only Righteousness dwells.
    May the Spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ our God be with you all.

    1. @Gabe Mendoza like I said, you dims feel you have the right to cheat as long as you get your way.
      Typical of children.
      And commies.

    2. @Gabe Mendoza i only commented once so let’s simmer down a bit.. It was the most innocent question. Let me see if I understood you here though. So dumbasses (whoever that may be) have information, in which you’re not interested in believeing, and you dont read history because it lacks appeal to you. Instead, you read cook books. And you don’t read people’s opinions or listen to because you’ve had your trust broken with that in the past from believing in something that i assume never happened therefore, you come to the place of opinions, start commenting on comments of the opinion, all on a subject that doesnt interest you. Here’s the thing. If you put all your chips in one basket, and lose that basket, well its not good. If you think you know, you most likely have the slightest of clues in comparison to one that finds the subject interesting and puts a full time schedule into it. And from there you’re going to have people who attach to their side and believe only their side and everything else is wrong. That’s not good either. That’s where you can make a group hate a mass amount of others. Like how you can see it happening if you’re able to take the best route and that is to not invest your trust in anyone to the point where you allow yourself to become enraged at someone you dont even know. To feel responsible for silencing someone. Its not any one elses responsibility to tell you whats right and wrong to think and say. In fact let me say that I have no clue whats going on just as much as you. The difference im informed from every side of the spectrum, hearing and reading every side from people that want to tell the story. And being open to the idea that you can be wrong they can be wrong and you could be being lied to and brain washed. To think you would know if you were is foolish. To think youre special and smarter than that is foolish. But you cant be wrong and commited to the idea You become dangerous at that level.. You can only think we have a clue, but we cant say we know because you trust the source. Even the books you read are written by humans who are only sharing their opinion. When you express a thought, a story, anything, you are constructing words to best describe how you understood it. And you are then sending that collection of words to someone elses brain when they have to break it down from their understanding and then the next time that story was told was now through his understanding while becoming more and more fabricated. We hear our stories expressed from people who we do not know and therefore should not trust nor let control my feelings. If someone attacks you for culture or beliefs religion or race reasons then that if now your right to stand against that, but to jump on a band wagon to win for your team when you never experienced the issue is insane how many are clung to rioting and fighting for causes with no solution. Just been told to be angry at your neighbor. Polking you with a stick and tell you its your neighbors fault.. Hes racist and hes why your life isnt perfect. Hes the enemy and hes why youre broke. Meanwhile they have your business closed and give themselves raises and watch as the people destroy each other. Convince you its justified and its about issues that dont have solutions and are not as real as exclaimed until projected into excistence. And build themselves a wall and break down yours and I could easily see next is to take your capitol because they now have so much power that they will say we couldnt handle it so we depopulate. And thats my opinion

  5. This is not going to stop people from voting. Now that people understand the power of their vote, they are going to endure all of the barriers to ensure that they vote.

    1. @charles You completely disregarded all the other efforts to prevent people from voting…. why should they eliminate Sunday Voting, or take away Dropbox locations, or push back the deadline for absentee ballots?

    2. @Hey Hey Hey THEY ignore it because the CANNOT defend it. THEY KNOW that the real intent is to throw up as many hurdles to voting as possible to reduce voter turnout. The lower the voter turnout, the more favorable it is for the GOP. Look at what Paul Weyrick said: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8GBAsFwPglw

      His goal was to keep voter turnout as low as possible!

    3. @charles what about reducing counties with more than 5 million people to ONE ballot drop box? You know…those counties that include Houston or Dallas or Austin … aka counties with more democrat voters. Meanwhile counties with just 1100 voters also got one mail in drop box. In fact, it took 140 counties to add up to the same population as the top 5 counties in Texas. Those 140 counties got 140 ballot drop boxes and the 5 counties totalling more than 13 million people got just 5 drop boxes. And those 140 counties? ALL BLOOD RED Republican counties. Funny how that worked out eh? Greg Abbot at work. Why reduce the number of polling places in metro areas, why shorten the length of early in-person voting is open? What is that about except trying to put up as many hurdles as possible to voting. Also, GA, TX, LA, MS, AL, SC, KY, TN all reduced the number of polling places and the number of workers at the polling places and closed polls earlier and opened them later than they did in 2008 & 2012…those changes took effect in 2016. Why do that?

  6. How many times do you have to show your ID & have your name listed as a REGISTERED VOTER TO VOTE? I think Once is Enough.

    1. Quit pitting US against each other, wasting our time and money !!! !! When is CHINA going to be brought to JUSTICE FOR UNLEASHING A DEADLY VIRUS on US!!!

    1. Hi everyone, we have to ensure that the voting system is fair. Requiring an I.D. to vote is very fair and should remain the law.

  7. The Dept. of Homeland Security even said it was the most secure election ever. Mr. Raffensperger said they found 2 dead people who voted (out of how many million?). This is disgusting.

    Reduce the Supreme Court to 6 and take it to the Supreme Court.

    1. Quit pitting US against each other, wasting our time and money !!! !! When is CHINA going to be brought to JUSTICE FOR UNLEASHING A DEADLY VIRUS on US!!!

    1. The Demonrats are the ones that think Blacks are so stupid that they couldn’t figure that out. Republicans give Blacks credit for being smarter than Demonrats think they are. So……..who is racist? Hmmmmmm

    1. @sonia jules  whoa! Our Honorable President shouldn’t be included in the discussion stop the disinformation and focus the voting rights. The term Whataboutism is created because of republicans .

    2. @sonia jules Trump never once stood up to Russia, he took their word over our intelligence agencies. Even with the recent infiltration of our networks he still said it could be China. He loved to brag he has been the toughest President on Russia, yet the only sanctions imposed on them in 2017 were actually approved under the Obama administration. All his admin had to do is implement and enforce them, even then Trump had to be convinced to implement them. Regarding China, Biden hasn’t made any decisions regarding trade in fact the same tariffs are still in place that were implemented by Trump. However regarding China, Trump cost our Nation billions and severely hurt our AG industry with his stupid trade war. Did you know that even with the Trade war the IMP/EXP trade gap with China grew to it’s highest level under Trump. Not to mention the FTA that we now have with China actually benefits them, and China also now is the center nation in the FTA with the same Nations the were going to be in the TPP, the one we would have a say in. TPP was going to address everything regarding China, which included but not limited to Currency Dumping, Trade Dumping, Human Rights (Child Labor), Technology, Trade Balance…. Then there are the 18 trademarks Ivanka got from China. Trump was a failure on immigration reform, which I am for. Even Graham said Trump was a moving target when he refused a bipartisan bill that had $25B for his stupid wall. A wall that will cost billions to maintain and will not stop illegals from crossing. Not to mention does nothing for the educated illegals that overstay student and visitor Visas that actually compete in high paying jobs we all want. Nor does it stop the bulk of the drugs that come through ports of entry such as airports, ports and even at the border crossings. As my ancestry are immigrants (fathers side – Mayflower… mothers – 2rd generation German), people need to be able to legally immigrant to our Nation.

    3. @Ksoulx ok … let’s dig deep into voting right … the ones that were changed due to the CORONA VIRUS CHINA INFECTED US with ????
