“While Joe Manchin is demanding both parties agree on any further federal voting-rights legislation, a new study quantifies how completely Republicans have excluded Dems from the passage of the restrictive voting laws proliferating in red states”

1. Funny watching people who didn't care about "democracy dying" when it was Black and Brown people

 

whose rights were being suppressed suddenly wake up and start screaming about the danger we're all in now that they think it's THEIR rights being trampled upon.

If more Brownsteins had spoken up years ago when we were begging for help, we might not be in this mess now.

2. I'm personally suspicious

Of these posters with 600, 800 posts and their negativity. One poster doesn’t like this, another wants us to stop doing that. This one states democracy is dying. This will be my last reply until I’m checking out the poster.

4. I think the repUGLYcan party....

.... is slowly digging their own grave. Maybe they can dig deep enough to accommodate the doom and gloomers as well since it seems they have laid down and given up on democracy's survival, and unlike Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and we the majority, it also seems they have little desire to fight for, and defend it.

5. Thank you for the interesting article.

Unlike many here, I don't think burying our heads in the sand is a helpful strategy.
