    1. @J. Cleveland Exactly. A basic level security clearance should be required for every president and congress to even be on the ballot. It’s required for many jobs and certainly should be for those. I know the government has the ability to check this stuff beforehand, but if they found something they wouldn’t be able to use it since they had run the checks without authorization. If this was put in the Constitution, it would deter corrupt people from running for office. This wasn’t possible when the Constitution was written, plus it was assumed that generally they’d be people with integrity.

  1. OMG is this the wild wild west Republicans should be ashamed of trying to make it impossible to vote.

    1. Shame? They have to find some first.
      To be clear, they’re not making it impossible to vote, if you’re a republican.
      They’re trying to block the communities who largely vote for someone who is not GoP.

    1. @GlowBeard Hi. Thanks. I stand corrected, Bhatt stated “TRUMP WILL SPEND THE REST OF HIS PATHETIC LIFE…” you’re inferring that his life previously was pathetic. As much as we’d all like to believe that there’s no indication nor correlation with “the rest of” and the past. Hence he could have been rich and a billionaire ( I doubt it ), but I’m not wrong in saying what I said. We don’t know about his previous state of being. He could have been skinny and think and not this fat ball or orange we see now. Bhatt DIDN’T SAY anything about the past, it’s inferred and not all inferences are correct.

    2. @Tarek ldim Suklai
      And neither will tRump be following Biden!
      He will be in Jail busy servicing BIG BUBBA’s every whim!

    3. @Tarek ldim Suklai dint have to find Biden just go ahead and follow trumps lie of missing ballots

  2. No Candidate that Trump has endorsed has EVER won an election.
    Trump endorsing Ms Hice just handed the election win back to Mr Raffensperger.

    1. “No Candidate that Trump has endorsed has EVER won an election.”
      this is false.
      hugely false.
      his record for the 2018 elections of candidates he endorsed was about 50%, give or take. a little bit lower than Obama’s endorsement record for that year.

    2. Trump doesn’t seem to realize how well-respected Brad Raffensperger is in Georgia. On Election Day 2022, he will even get a sizable number of votes from democrats. The toxicity of the Trump “brand” is going to be revealed.

  3. Then America has to make a decision, will we the people have something to say about our elections? Then we gotta let them know.

    1. Yes don’t let the Republicans stop any American from voting for the person who they want in the office they are running for. STOP VOTER SUPPRESSION!!! IT’S UNAMERICAN!!!

    2. There are so many issue but this voter suppression has to be one of the top two the other is the senate filibuster where you can just state that its a filibuster and you don’t have to hold the floor and talk about the issue. This is lazy and corrupt way to do things – everybody knows that if Moscow Mitch has to stand up for more than 20 mins he will fall over. Again another reason for TERM LIMITS no one should be in that office for 35 years. NO ONE.

  4. Check him out for Russian connections. Check his criminal record too. Also see if there’s any connection to the proud boys.

    1. Canada has OFFICIALLY classified The Proud Boys as a Domestic Terrorists Organization based in the United States of America, they are right, check it out.

    1. @PhunkFl3xn “Two months after publication of this story, the Georgia secretary of state released an audio recording of President Donald Trump’s December phone call with the state’s top elections investigator. The recording revealed that The Post misquoted Trump’s comments on the call, based on information provided by a source,” the Post said Thursday in a 129-word correction published atop the story.

      “Trump did not tell the investigator to ‘find the fraud’ or say she would be ‘a national hero’ if she did so. Instead, Trump urged the investigator to scrutinize ballots in Fulton County, Ga., asserting she would find ‘dishonesty’ there. He also told her that she had ‘the most important job in the country right now.'”

    2. The fraud was massive and caught on video. Literally caught red handed pulling suitcases of votes out after they’d sent people home because of a “leak”. But reality isn’t what you want to believe, so you won’t.

    3. @Zach Fisher 35%er/
      You’re still talking about that disproven nonsense.
      Gullible magacult derp.

    4. @Satanic Microchip v3 it was on video dummy, I don’t have to wonder. Blue anon’s like you still think the guy from the Apprentice was a Russian spy. Which was so stupid I can’t even quantify it. Orange man bad though, never let anyone convince you otherwise.

    1. Oh in Florida many many women were scared to vote for Biden bc of menacing gun toting idiots. Personal story…

  5. When can we SUE members of Congress for negligence and dereliction of duty when they purposely block gun restrictions when these shootings happen? We need to get these criminal politicians in jail.

    1. @Nancy Webb uhhh… Boulder is liberal capital.. Uhhhh.. Atlanta is definitely Democrat.. Uhhhhhh. Parkland is basically a suburb of Miami… uuhhhhhh drrrrrr yeah another democrat ran city and area.. thanks for proving my points..

    2. @Nancy Webb what about Chicago? Democrat.. St. Louis? Democrats… Detroit? Democrats… New York? Democrats… all riddled with crime

    3. @Ronald Miller Chicago’s guns come from Indiana right across the river. That is one of the reasons to have a federal law.

  6. I dont get it. How can politicians interfere with who can vote, so long as the voter is a citizen? That’s a Federal crime.

    1. States control the voting and write the rules and that’s why Federal reform is needed to pass so at least Federal Elections are conducted on a common set of rules.

    2. Please write and call your Congress and Senators to vote “Yes” for H.R.1 and H.R.4 to protect our voting rights.

    3. You don’t know your constitution the way you think… the states have the power to decide who, how, and when the voting happens. They are trying to put through legislation federally, but the republicans don’t want it and are trying to fight, to greatly make it harder to suppress voters.

    1. @Barbara Hartlen The attorney’s are probably going through everything with a fine tooth comb, so nothing is over looked.

    1. @My True Crime Library it’s not the gun it’s the mental illness of people it’s no different than you voting for Biden most people cannot understand how you could do that that’s why we think Democrats are mental and I’m not a Republican

    2. @Move on Over what other option was there? Vote for Trump and go through another 4 years of insanity? Biden is the lesser evil.

  7. When I hear his voice now it sounds like a dull file on rusty metal. What a tragedy these last years have been.

    1. Yo’@Jeff Everhart. You’re the one talking about supporting voter suppression, which is one of the fourteen characteristics of fascism outlined by Lawrence Britt in 2003. So if it quacks like a duck and walks like a duck it’s a duck. So in the same venue of reasoning, if someone supports fascist ideologies, doesn’t that person lend themselves to the definition of a fascist?

    2. Yo’@Jeff Everhart. You’re irrelevant.
      You’ve offered absolutely nothing to to this discussion, other than reactionary contextless nonsense. You troll for responses and then counter with nonsensical unrelated quips that make broad erroneous errors alluding to others mental state; seems a clear case of projection. A little quote I’ve always appreciated, though I know not who to attribute it to, ‘it is better to keep your mouth shut and have people assume you are stupid, than to open it and remove all doubt!’

    3. @Jeff Everhart…again a random erroneous comment without merit, context, or relevance, as well as completely inaccurate. You’re a clear example why our Founding Fathers drafted into our Constitution, a system of a representative democracy, rather than a full democracy. Their thoughts (which were opinions and philosophies shared by Socrates), being that the general public isn’t educated enough to responsibly weigh in on topics directly and therefore vulnerable to manipulative charlatans. Unfortunately, in our situation the GOP sponsored charlatans have infiltrated US politics, and have unceasingly worked toward undermining the function of democracy. On one level I’m grateful for the illustration you’ve provided of our Founding Fathers concerns, on another level I’m appalled that someone as obviously intellectually challenged as you are has even the tiniest influence in US politics. But hey that’s an unfortunate consequence of democracy, that the intellectually challenged and misinformed have as much an influence as the highly educated and cerebrally gifted.

      …I do fully understand that most, if not all, of what I posted has completely flown over your head, but I look forward to your next irrelevant quip regardless. Even if you and you’re opinions are irrelevant, perhaps someone following this thread is inclined to investigate the issues a little more deeply after digesting something they read. Sorry if I triggered you emotionally.

  8. I would argue that a vote can be a more dangerous weapon than a gun, and the Republicans know this.

    1. @Mike Nelson hey the son of prediction made his own rules so why not the opposition do the same thing what’s fair is fair. The pendulum swings both ways.

  9. We can register and vote on the same day plus we have paid time off to vote, voting locations within 5 minutes of home. Most time I’ve ever had to wait in line is about 10 minutes, but usually no wait time. It is not only a right to vote, but a responsibility. !!! …and we have gun control

    1. And so is the case in Australia. You get fined for not voting! USA is possibly only the first world country that is way behind on having everyone vote.

    2. I believe that everyone should go to the polls and vote and you should have to have ID you need it for everything else thank God Florida we need an ID to vote

  10. Another DT, “I’m taking my ball and going home because, i’m a big baby and that’s how a big baby acts.”

  11. So tired of hearing about Trump he’s out of office that’s why we voted him out, he’s gone let him be gone, please

  12. “Find 1 more than we HAVE” in itself says cheat for 1 more vote. That alone should win a prosecution.
