Every election you will find a ballot and voting pamphlet in your locked mailbox, then you either return it to a post office, to your mailbox, or to ballot collectors who walk your street on election night.

  • JOHN OLIER NEEDS TO SEE THIS! NAREDNDRA MODI DOESN"T WANT HIM TO: In India, Narendra Modi and his nationalist (borderline fascist) government are withdrawing government support for farmers, and privatizing the agricultural sector overnight, this might be the worst disaster since he demonetized half the country's currency overnight!! Farmers have been protesting but have been met with police brutality, broken roads, and a false media narrative. FARMERS ARE BING BLOBKED FROM TRAVELLING TO DELHI TO PROTEST AND THEY ARE PROTESTING IN SHIFTS TO MAKE THE PROTESTS GO ON FOR MONTHS! No serious media coverage in the country and Modi's trying to sweep it under the rug. Wouldn't it be a shame if somebody cast a bright light on Modi's dirty laundry? *(***

  • Oh my goodness. Just because 70% of us believe we should be able to vote by mail, doesn't mean the courts can change election laws. All voting laws are Constitutionally required to be created by the state's legislature. Many of the mail in ballots are unconstitutional. But, what difference does it make? Right? Who thinks that Constitution is a dusty old document that needs to be seriously updated? I don't. I think it needs to be seriously considered and respected. If Biden is given the presidency it will very likely mean a weaker economy and massive tax increases and even more debt laid at the feet of our poor children. God help us.

Of course if you're looking for God to help you then relying on outdated texts written in and for a culture you couldn't possibly understand before we had widespread global communication and indoor toilets is probably your jam. I'm surprised the constitution isn't a bit too modern for you.

    • @Cyber Controller 16-914 true, but this past November election was the largest voter turnout in USA history also the largest widespread use of mail in votes. I find it hard to believe that either candidate could generate more votes then Obama did in 2008. especially since how unlikable both are. if there was voter fraud it would have to have been both dems and republican's(most likely individual bad actors not the party's themselves) . I just don't trust the process, it might be due to more people being able to vote because of mail in voting and that was causing the increase. I still find it hard to believe though.

      MindlessMuseMindlessMuseヶ月 前
    • @MindlessMuse Gave a quick read to the article and it doesn't seem that John condemned the idea of mail-in-votes, more so spoke of one time mail-in-voter fraud did take place. Just because it happened once, doesn't mean it will always happen or even that it's common.

  • I voted in person in Louisiana and must say I was surprised at the safety measures in place. Hand sanitizer stations at entrance and exit, social distancing markers, all workers wearing masks and seated behind plexiglass. Pens were available for signatures but I was asked to place it in a separate container to be cleaned before reuse, and every voting machine was cleaned and sanitized between each voter. There were I voted stickers though. However, despite the fact that Louisiana has a mask mandate, people have stopped wearing them unless required by employers. I noticed that Hurricane Laura happened and suddenly the masks started to disappear. Then Hurricane Delta came along and people act as if the virus doesn’t exist. Now the case numbers are spiking again.
