    1. We are a failing democracy because of 1) the electoral college 2) plurality voting 3) the Senate.

      Solutions: 1) remove it 2) replace it with rank choice or approval voting 3) change it; give statehood to DC and PR; end the filibuster.

      Not easy, but this is “the hole in the roof”. We can ignore it, but it will not ignore us.

    2. Nicholas A.
      yes anything to rig the system even more in favor of the Democrats? Don’t think it will ever happen.

    3. PR Statehood would mean another 200 billion or more added to the deficit. In that sense, PR is very much like the existing Red States — in need of lots and lots of Federal funds to stay afloat.

    4. @WakeUpAmerican000s As Puerto Ricans are American citizens then they should get that help from the federal government anyway.

  1. The system definitely needs to be fixed. Mitch McConnell has allowed so much corruption to take place in this country. It stops now!!

    1. @Sean Rathbun Lol. Another very foolish post. Your lack of commonsense is really showing now. Too much koolaid huh ?? Duh !!!

    2. @Andre Anyone A sheep, no you are a jerk. Come around me with no mask, you may get a thoat punch your way. Fool !!! Omg. The stupidity never ends.

    1. Poverty does not have a color, shame on you for believing this platforms spread of misinformation.1World 1 Race 1 Time.

    1. I agree but also getting in the way of the American people is some of the people we are putting in office…

      peace and blessing to you

    2. @Bill Hodge apples to oranges not even close to the same was harry Reid a rep or a dem mister hypocrite

    3. @A T 7 million more on one side isn’t ‘half’.. just because the senate is 50-50 doesn’t mean The People are. Congresses job is to execute the will of the people, not the authoritarians.

  2. Eliminate the electoral college and Dems will always win by popular vote. Republicans have only won the popular vote once on the last 32 years.

    1. @Brandon Jontz
      Rural Americans have their state and city governments. They should not have the unfair ability to control the federal government over the wishes of the majority in the country.

    2. @R Steel
      What makes you think you will “lose all control?” That’s really the crux of it, isn’t it. You want “all control” and don’t feel like the rest of the country, who outnumber you, should have ANY control.

      But the reason the country is in the mess it is, is because of all the Republican policies that have been enacted for the past 40 years. The Republicans have had full control over the nation’s policies and look what those policies have brought. The War on Terror, the War on Drugs, deregulation, lowered taxes for the wealthy and corporations, and just about everything the Republicans wanted has been enacted; and those policies have been an abject failure.

      Apparently the fact that you still have state and municipal governments and that you still have representatives in the federal government isn’t enough; you have to have “all control” and believe that only you “real Americans” should have any influence in how the country is run. Your own language betrays what you really think and what you really want: “all control”.

    3. @Pieshka
      Everything you say is massive projection. You have no idea what folks on the left want, so you make up a bunch of BS to justify your blind hatred.

  3. Mitch McConnell thinks he’s smart, but he fails to notice how terrible he sounds lying in front of camera.

    1. How exactly are we still fighting for voting right still? Requiring a Valid ID to Prove Citizenship? where exactly are voting rights needed?

    1. That’s funny, because when I saw his picture and the only word I could see in the title of the video was tool, I made that immediate connection as well.

  4. “If anyone, then knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.” James 4:17

    1. Many will hear from the Lord, “I never knew you” because of what James 4:17 says. See Matthew 7:13-23

    2. Amen & Amen again!!! Like Jesus told Pilot, “You have no authority except it be given to you by God .” These “republicans” think they’re in control!! You’re not!!!

  5. GOP has already shown they will burn down democracy to hold power… and they will if given the chancr in the near future.

    1. @Lynda Crosfill again, lay off Hunters Biden’s crack. No one can understand your incoherent nonsensical crack babble.

    2. @loki 1 while trump killed 500.000 Americans through negligence, and little else except lie steel and cheat in the 4 years of been president.

    3. @loki 1 so biden lost well that accounts for trumps blackmail phone calls that the world listened to, it accounts for him never coming up with voter fraud evidence, it accounts for his solicitors stepping down,or withdrawing evidence they didn’t have to start with. And now for is solicitors making statements that the big lie was exactly that ,and ho yes and his actions on the 6th there’s only one world wide fraudster and TRUMPS his NAME .

    4. @loki 1 better than a washed up corrupt actor, but then little minds will follow enything that makes them feel big.

    5. @loki 1 Now that means that you know exactly how many votes he DID get. Please print the number, state by state, county by county, so we can all be convinced and explain the process you used to determine those numbers. Otherwise, why are we supposed to believe you? Because you’re you?

    1. @taylor furtick how so? They have made many of your ” reliable liberal news sources ” make so many retractions it looks like a college newspaper.. gtfo

    2. @NBK haha yal think msnbc and CNN are liberal? That tells you don’t know what are actual left-wing news sources and you’re hungup on moderate/center “news” CNN and msnbc are trash and are far from liberal

    3. @Kareem Goat 33 Hmmm, his face sure has some similarities I’m not quite sure but I think a turtle also has no spine?

    1. That sure seems to be their end game. Unless they are really just that shortsighted and greedy, that they can’t see or don’t care about the end game. I think it will be more like Soylent Green, if humanity doesn’t get it’s sh*t together and start using those huge brains.

  6. People have died trying to vote ..

    People died traveling to vote..

    Even kick off of there homes…

    Fight for your right to vote

    We the people

    1. People are sleeping in a hole in a foreign land right now so you can vote. Lets keep it in perspective. Its a blessing to have the opportunity.This place is great, don’t let this platform tell you otherwise.

  7. They don’t even want to pass a law to abolish lynching and we’re in fkn 2021! How racist is this?

    1. A’s Black
      they’ll soon change there minds if it was the senators fate involved on the 6 of January, I don’t think they’d be backing it then. Although maybe it should be used for traitor’s against the constitution .

  8. Everything McConnell says is so obstinatly contrary to the practical business of governce, it’s difficult to see him as sane.

  9. every voice counts – white, black, yellow, red! I disagree with what some believe and stand for, but I respect that their right to vote is as important as mine.

    1. mickus- Australia is a Free country, the US is brainwashed into believing they are Free when they are not. Right now the GOP is changing the voting laws in order to prohibit citizen’s ability to vote. Their so-called Democracy is the laughing stock of the world.

    2. @Mary Jean Jones

      There are no free countries at me moment. Now shut up, stay in your house, put on you mask, get your “vax” and “immunity passport”.

  10. Why don’t Republicans try something novel, setting policies and a political agenda that actually have a chance to be popular in a modern US?
    Instead of only focusing on remaining in power and keeping sponsors happy…

    1. Why? That means they would have to actually do something. The privileged believe everybody else should work, not them!

    2. I think they just don’t want to work for their money, that you poor taxpayers are giving them… Greetings from Germany

  11. Louis Dejoy has got to be eliminated as head of the USPS. No one should be protected as such in such a vital position. There is a over whelming presence of a conflict of interest.

    1. @D. A. There is actually a certain board that has the power to place DeDouche in that position .. and remove him.. Biden has the power to REPLACE some of those board members and get them to oust that pos.. I think its a matter of time.. Biden has so many fires to put out from the KLANpig – immigration – voter nullification etc etc.. – and 2 yrs to get it DONE

    2. The constitution states any person or employees interference in withholding or delaying postal service is guilty of obstructing the rule of law it Carry’ $250.00 fine and prison sentence.

    3. @Noir Path, a loot of damage can be done in 2 yrs. We can’t wait that long. I think Biden has someone on it as we speak.

    4. @Sturkelious Rron I have to believe someone is working on it. I think Biden can appoint three board members and then vote Joyless OUT.

  12. Whenever Moscow Mitch speaks in a clip, I just have to blast him with all the worst names under the sun to counter his lying, arrogant, manipulative privilege.
