Democrats in UPROAR After Georgia Takes Action to Protect Future Elections
I think we’ve seen that when it comes to voter and election integrity, the courts and the federal government are not going to do anything to help us out.
The only chance that we have at ensuring the highest level of integrity when it comes to elections is going to be left up to the states that we reside in. Some states are actually taking action and thankfully, Georgia is one of them.
Georgia Republicans in the state Senate approved a bill last week that would require more identification for those who are going to be utilizing absentee voting in the elections.
Voters would have to provide a driver’s license number, state ID number, or a copy of photo ID when requesting absentee ballots, according to Senate Bill 67. Currently, absentee ballots are verified based on voters’ signatures and registration information rather than an ID.
The bill passed the Senate along party lines which is almost always the case anymore. People can’t find common ground anymore and that’s because nobody talks to each other anymore.
The Republicans don’t want to talk to the left because they won’t listen, all they want to do is talk and tell you why you’re wrong. The Democrats just want to tell you your wrong and honestly, they don’t even want to listen to what you have to say. If your opinion doesn’t meet their ideology, it might as well not even exist because they’re not going to hear it.
This should pass the Georgia House of Representatives given that there are 103 Republicans and only 76 Democrats in the Georgia House.
This actually sparked a protest from Democrats on Monday. Take a look at these babies.
NOW: A group of House Democrats has joined Rep. Cannon in a sit-in on the stairs where it happened. She maintains the officer needs to apologize publicly. @FOX5Atlanta #gapol pic.twitter.com/MCLtlGH6OY

In reality, what is so offensive about needing to show your ID to elect the leader of our country? We have to show ID for MUCH LESS important matters like buying cigarettes, alcohol, and cans of air so I can clean my keyboard. But doing the same thing for voting would be racist, right? Give me a break!
Here is some more video from the protest:

.@RepDonnaMcLeod you did a great job speaking out on #HB531 but sadly the majority was determined to push this anti-voter bill through. Thanks for working to #ProtectTheVoteGA#GApol pic.twitter.com/3AJK9irwWi
