LOL, three of us had the identical though at the same time.
MK Ultra for sure.
No need for MkUltra, you’re just all being fed the same crap so it really isn’t surprising when you think the same thing. The best propaganda
makes a person believe they’ve arrived to a conclusion on their own.
The new Georgia voting laws are much
more than just “voter ID”. That’s only one small part of it. And I don’t think it’s coincidence
that that one part is all right wingers ever talk about. You all conveniently leave out the rest of it.
Starting with voter ID, what if I lose my wallet on Election Day? What if it’s stolen? What if? There are a million things that could happen that
would keep me from voting on Election Day. There shouldn’t be obstacles instituted that keep Americans from exercising their sacred franchise. I
believe that’s un-Democratic.
The level of voter fraud that’s been recorded is so low that it doesn’t make sense. Statistically things like this always effect low income
communities more than others, and these low income communities mostly vote Democrat, so it’s no surprise why Republicans support this. Trump, Mitch
McConnell, and a number of other Republicans have justified it by saying that when more people vote, Republicans lose. And they’re right.
Moving beyond voter ID, it gets rid of the majority of secure ballot boxes where votes can be dropped off, mostly in low income and blue areas, which
I’m sure is coincidence. It bans mobile voting facilities, which are used in a lot of senior and low income areas. It bans early voting on holidays.
It bans third party groups from sending absentee ballots to people.
It also makes it a crime to give people food or water while waiting in line, which effects Democratic areas more because the GA state legislature has,
coincidentally I’m sure, closed down a lot of polling places in democratic areas, leading to 8 hour wait times in the last election.
Worse of all it makes it legal for the heavily Republican GA state legislature to throw out any results they “think” might have been fraudulent.
So all they have to do is “think” there was fraud against the Republican Party to nullify an elections results. Evidence be damned.
If you can’t see how un-American this is, then I don’t know what to tell you.
