      You got that right buddy. It’s Trump and his followers that are sinking your country. Vote Trump out and save America!

    This is worse than what Stalin did and said. “Who counts the votes is what matters”.

    • Wow. I guess you do not actually know what that killer did. Perhaps you brush up on your history before you make such an absurd statement.

      @Trixy Do you really want to count the deaths layed at America’s feet? Stalin’s quote is very relevant in retrospect no matter what he did.

  3. Going around the world dropping bombs in the name of democracy, yet back home you’re actively discouraging people from voting.

  4. The Secretary of State is a criminal. He is trying to blame people under him for his mistakes. He is following the Brian Kemp 2018 playbook. Kemp did the same thing when he was SOS. He oversaw elections in which he was participating in. Yes, the person running for Gov, over saw his own election. THATS CRIMINAL.

    What is going to be Kemp’s excuse this time? “I didn’t know people want to vote, I was told yesterday”

      Sounds just like his President and the Republicans

    • Recall that bigot. Have a special election. Stand in lines one more time, so that you’ll never have to again.

    • Georgia is a broken state – like the lyrics of Papa Roach’s top 2000 song ‘Broken Home’. Just replace home with state in that song.
      The father reference in that song, Brian Kemp is a mess. The mother reference in that song, Stacey Abrams, tried her best, but was cheated out of being Governor.

    • @Ben Frank Idiots in Michigan want Governor Gretchen Whitmer recalled.
      Brian Kemp is one Governor that needs to be recalled.

  6. Kemp and his buddies need to be held accountable! And by “accountable”, I mean “found guilty and incarcerated”!

    Pretty clear that your system of voting is designed to frustrate the voter.
    This is not democracy it is a circus

  8. Republicans should never be in power again, their true MADNESS has been exposed in this Trump era!

  9. the problems are created by design, it’s a Republicriminal strategy

    It’s kemp rigging the election again. How un American. He is not a true patriot. The racism is so blatant. What a rotten state to live in.

    • Exactly..i live in a county in GA that was under investigation for voter suppression during the last gov election..kemp would have lost to Stacy Abrams if not for him cheating..

    This is where you have people put in government positions that are not held accountable for there actions and decisions and or unqualified.

    The republican party can only win by stealth and cheating. The need to be voted out by a land slide.

    “INCOMPETENCE OR SABOTAGE” The Georgia Primary Election shows us how far they will go to suppress the black vote !!!

    • Elaine Daprano | June 12, 2020 at 2:16 AM | Reply

      Actually the ENTIRE Democratic vote.
      I T will solve EVERYTHING.

      It’s not just the blacks. My son is a white college student in Savannah. He was kicked off the voter rolls and couldn’t get back on before the last election. In addition to blacks and other ethnic minorities, they target young people in Atlanta and Savannah because there are a lot of progressives in those areas.

      @Chris Pontello: I am sorry to hear that your son was kicked out of the voter roll !!! Do not worry , he’ll be ready for November because he knows better now!!! For all the progressives who want to change the way things are going now in America!!! Thank you from bottom of my heart !!!

  15. How does anyone think McConnell has remained senator of KY? Nothing on Earth can stop me from voting Trump out.

  16. Sorry to say, but the Georgia residents that vote republican, and voted for Brian Kemp, should have to stand in the rain for 6 hours to vote more than anyone else, because this is the type of inexplicable BS they voted for. They can just pretend that they’re waiting in line to get into the new restaurant called Karma, where there are no menus, you simply get what you deserve.

    Given that governor’s history, this was part of his plan. Shameful.

  18. What a corrupted Governor and state. So sad for the good people of Georgia.

    This should ANGER every American

    If any positive can be taken from this, it’s that issues should be identified NOW and these problems MUST be fixed before November!!!
