The 2020 election had the highest turnout in history and according to every expert actually responsible for monitoring its security it was also secure.

So if more people were able to vote in a secure manner than ever before, why does Texas need to enact provisions that will make it even harder to vote than it was before the COVID provisions were enacted?

According to the Texas Attorney General's office, there was a grand total of 197 official complaints of voter fraud in the 2020 election. I don't know about you but making it harder for millions of people to vote in an effort to prevent 197 cases of potential fraud seems like a bad law to me with an ulterior motive.

Hold the vote without them.

Then hold some other votes without them such as pay, term limits how many years minimum sentence for defrauding tax payers for unauthorized absent officials during scheduled votes...make it interesting.

Make it a Honduran extradition flight...that would get real interesting “I sorry but Senator Fancypants is having a vote on voting rights today, you couldn’t possibly be her.”

If the real intent of the bill is to prevent people from voting "D" their plan could backfire. If there's two things I know about Texans, it's that the people are huge, and they don't want to get out of their cars. Banning drive-through voting will tank the number of total votes by 95%!!

What's particularly funny is they had to show an ID to rent the bus, charter the plane...and even for the pi$$ water beer they bought for the big demonstration. Just about everything they did for their little road trip "required" a form of ID.

The argument against needing an ID would be a hinderance to the disabled, young, poor is not valid considering you need a valid id just to get a library card. Guess who the primary demographic's are for patrons that utilize the services provided by public libraries? ....the disabled, the poor and the young.

I'm genuinely curious if someone actually has a good example where an ID to vote would be a show stopper for x demographic that is a legal citizen?


We look like such a stupid society.

We have REAL problems out there… our economy, education, etc, and our elected leaders are focused on these word games about voter ID.

How true.

You can easily blame the garbage politicians they dredge up, but ultimately it comes down to the fact that a good chunk of our country is lazy, out of shape, unintelligent, followers. They are waiting for some loon to come up and lead them.

Worst part is, they are too inept to realize any of it

For instance, how goofy our military + CIA looks when they do the "woke" nonsense. When you have professional soldiers like the Russians or bloodthirsty commies like the Chinese...when they see this crap, they love it. They see weakness. They smell blood in the water and will pounce on our displayed weakness like a big cat. All the money and technology and weapons in the world won't do us a bit of good if our troops are too worried about "wokeness" instead of KILLING the enemy or anyone else we tell them to point a gun at and shoot.

Texas lawmakers, to avoid a vote, have fled the state mask less in a private jet. More than 50 of them. They are making it as if they are making a sacrifice for freedom.

www.breitbart.com... leeing-state/

Representative James Talarico said he and his fellow Democrats’ are just like other “brave Americans” who have sacrificed throughout history to protect he right to vote,. They have fled the state to deprive Republicans and the voters of Texas a quorum to pass new voting laws.



Texas state Rep. Trey Fischer (D), one of the dozens of Democrat state lawmakers who fled the state as part of a protest against the legislature’s pursual of measures to strengthen election integrity, claimed he and his colleagues chartered a flight to D.C. because “everybody” wanted to see them together.

Speaking on CNN’s New Day on Tuesday, Fischer defended their mode of transportation, contending it was what the people wanted to see.

“So, number one, when you break a quorum you want to be successful, so I think everybody wants to see 51, 52, 55 Democrats on the same plane. That’s reassuring,” Fischer said, referring to the picture showing several maskless, smiling Democrat lawmakers aboard the plane:

“Number two, to get a flight out of town at a time certain – you know, getting everybody to come if from across the state – you need to fly privately,” Fischer continued, attempting to make the plane sound more ordinary by noting the absence of “fancy couches.”

“And, as you can see from the picture, we’re talking about the same kind of plane that the public uses every day,” he said. “There are no fancy couches or anything like that. This was just a regular plane that moved us from one state to another.”


www.breitbart.com...

Gov. Greg Abbott has said that the lawmakers will be arrested when hey arrive back in Texas. The State House has the right to issue a call to those members who are missing and it is not because of a valid excuse.

These are not BLM activists. These are not people who should skirt their duties as elected officials and it is about time that people like this are held responsible for their actions.

The WH of course has commented.



Vice President Kamala Harris is among those who have lavished the Democrats with praise, describing them as “leaders” who are “marching in the path that so many others before did when they fought and many died for our right to vote.”


What is appauling is that they are trying to say that the voice of the voter is not being heard by laws that will be enacted but at the same time they are not doing what all of their constituents want so THEY are actually hindering the will of the American Voter.

Mask less. Private charter. Case of Lite beer. A vacation. They need to get back to the state of Texas and face the music.





They should be ashamed. All of them.


The gutless wimp Democrats packed a charter plane, and now have Covid-19.

They really should make an example out of them - they represent us, not rule us.
Not supposed to be self-serving, not supposed to be above those they claim to serve.

UPDATE:

Texas Marshals have been given the green-light to go retrieve and/or arrest Democrats lawmakers who fled the state, rather than do the job they were elected to do.

twitter.com...


All right. It's been almost a week since they sent the law out after them. How come I haven't heard about the arrests? The Democrats got to D.C. in a day. Are these Texas Marshals walking to D.C., or what? Hurry up and get there and do your job.

This is a lot more than voter IDs, you know that. Do not try to pretend this bill is JUST about voter ID.





Right. It's about spreading covid in Washington and attempted murder on the vp.

Additional update 7.21.2021

Here is how SCUM Democrat journalists cover for SCUM Democrat state officials..

Excerpted from: apnews.com...

Six of the more than 50 Texas state representatives who decamped to Washington last week have since tested positive for the coronavirus, along with two Washington staffers associated with the group.


"Decamped"? In the real world, they're known as "defectors"!

"...staffers associated with the group." is a blatant LIE by the Scum Democrat journalists who wrote the article. The infected staffers are on the payroll of Nancy Pelosi, and President Biden.

The Associated Press was neck deep (along with FoxNews) in aspects of the election fraud that put Joe Biden in the White House.

They are both having a hard time, because Biden and Democrats are so dysfunctional this year, while inflation eats away at millions of budgets in America.
