    Hey democrats and liberals, I have two questions. First, do you think it’s ok to disregard ID? Second, do you think America will ever have a republican president ever again while this bill is in place?

    Actually it's about ensuring that every legal American voter is represented. Your narrative is lost cnn. Americans aren't buying it. The law will be enacted. It will be enforced.

    Time to seriously reevaluate your party & its platform when your sole focus is voter suppression because you know you can't win any other way.

    And what's wrong with that? I agree with what the GOP is doing in GA. GOP needs to step up in PA too. Stricter voting laws. No ID no vote and no more vote by mail. In person, or don't vote. If you can go to a store, or a nail salon, or barbershop, restaurant, casino etc... you can vote in person. No excuses!!!

    Explain to me: Why CNN is still talking about POTUS TRUMP. He is no longer in office. What do you think? I see Democrats Revenge at all cost. So, destroy America to get back at POTUS TRUMP. TRUMP WON. EVERYTHING THE DEMOCRATS ARE DOING TO ALL AMERICAN CITIZENS PROVES THAT TRUMP WON. THEY ARE WORKING SO HARD TO DELETE HIM. WHY DON'T ALL AMERICANS CHALLENGE THE DEMOCRATS TO PROVE BIDEN WON? WHY, DON'T ALL AMERICANS CHALLENGE BIDEN HIMSELF TO PROVE HE WON? IS IT BECAUSE POTUS TRUMP WON AND THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS IT AND ALL AMERICANS JUST FOUND OUT? IS BECAUSE THE DEMOCRATS AND BIDEN HIMSELF CANNOT PROVE IT??? EXPLAIN, I REALLY WANT TO KNOW?

    Why make it easy? If you can't afford to get to the polls you aren't a contributing member of society so you should not have the right to vote.

    Left: Let's cheat by making illegals able to vote in 8 years or less Right: Let's cheat by making it difficult to vote for minorities, especially black. Fair play imo.

    I laugh when I see what the GOP is doing in GA. As a georgia voter for over 50 years the GOP is fighting against time and God. In 2022 and 2024 blacks will vote by any means necessary. The black turn out will be the greatest in Georgia history. People will walk off the job, churches will take people to the polls on days other than sundays, young people will take their peers to vote, the elderly like me will have their aged parents IDs ready. Nothing is going to stop us from getting to the polls....we will remember January 6, 2020.

    🇺🇸🇺🇸 A NOTE FROM "WE THE PEOPLE" 🇺🇸🇺🇸 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 🇺🇸🇺🇸 🇺🇸 What all of you in Washington DC call domestic terrorism and insurrection is simply all of the American people showing disgust with all of you in government !!! You have become "King George" !!! You have failed to listen or to represent the American people and now you fear the American people will justifiably retaliate and so you all repeatedly coax the media to constantly promote the narrative and accuse "we the people" of illegal insurrection and revolt !! We are not the criminals as you would have us believe !!!!! It is you who are the criminals and crooks who have cheated us out of our deserved rights and American way of life and you have become disgustingly wealthy while doing so at our expense !!!!!! Like dictators of undemocratic countries you are afraid of being deposed from your positions of seemingly untouchable power and you therefore deflect the blame on us !!! You are now reaping what you have sown !!! That fence around the "people's house" in Washington DC will not change the people's minds !!! 🤔🤔

    As a European it seems crazy that you can vote in the USA without a photo ID. A country with only two parties, no requirement for photo id, no true proportional representation nationally because of the electoral college. This is barely a democracy, and the blame falls on both sides.

    It's pretty simple. A couple decades ago, as demographics shifted, the Republicans decided it was a better idea to suppress the vote than try to win new people from different walks of life to their party. It's the party of voter suppression and Donald Trump. What a legacy.

    How does everything always end up about this dumb ass don saying it has to do with black people. U can only cry wolf so much. If u r working they have to let u leave to vote. Why is having an ID and making sure people gets their votes counted a bad thing. If u have a ballot to send in. U have a month to do it. If u don’t vote before then u didn’t want to anyway. The only excuses would be for military. But very few. A lot of these states had thes ballots for a month and took them to a week after. Come on people. They rigged. They wanted to wait and see how many votes they needed to dumb it. I know for sure trump was winning in a lot of them states by hundreds of thousands. And in 3 hours he lots those by 100 thousand. Bullshit.

But what they are also doing is letting me that my vote does matter , else why would be doing all this ? And this goes to make me want to excerise my right to vote even more ! Am remembering those that came before and what they endure , beating , water hoses , fire bombing , lynchings ! And so I can not turn around I will keep marching !

    WHINY LIBERALS=Classify everyone according to their race and not as an individual: Always loudly acknowledge the skin color of every person you talk to and make it the main subject of the conversation. If you are white, do not have any black friends: This may trick you into thinking you aren't racist. To help atone for our racist past, try some casual segregation: Create safe spaces where everyone is segregated by race, gender, and gender identity. It's the only way to achieve unity. Anyone who objects to this is racist. Always have extremely low expectations of minorities: Be sure to constantly remind them they can never overcome their circumstances without your help. Vote for policies that sound virtuous, no matter how much they actually harm people of color: Always vote for policies with virtuous-sounding names, even if they destroy black and brown communities. Appearance is everything!
