    Retrumplicans will not be truly satisfied until they can find a way to make it absolutely impossible for minorities and Democrats to cast a ballot.

    Florida Senate passes bill restricting voting rights
    The GOP-led legislation criminalizes giving water to voters in line, restricts ballot drop boxes, makes it harder to vote by mail and empowers partisan poll-watchers.

    The shameless, "win-at-all-costs" Retrumplicans are not only doing everything they can to make it harder for minorities to cast a ballot, now they want to be able to challenge voters' qualifications and their right to vote. I picture a big, strong, menacing thug glaring at a voter and telling him, "You don't really want to vote for that Democrat, do you? Nah, you'd be much better off voting for the Republican. Ya get me?"

    Republican state lawmakers look to empower partisan poll watchers, setting off alarms about potential voter intimidation
    CNN, May 2 2021 2:19 PM ET

    Voting rights activists are sounding alarms about Republican efforts in key states to empower partisan poll watchers and expand voter challenges – arguing it could lead to voter intimidation that recalls dark chapters in US history. Bills in several states would grant new authority to poll watchers – who work on behalf of candidates and political parties – to observe voters and election workers. Critics say it could lead to conflict and chaos at polling places and an improper targeting of voters of color.

    In Texas, a measure under consideration by the Republican-controlled legislature would grant partisan poll watchers the right to videotape voters as they receive assistance casting their ballots. In Florida, a sweeping election bill passed Thursday by Republicans in the state legislature specifies that partisan observers must be able see the ballots as canvassing boards work to authenticate voters' signatures on absentee ballots. There are no limits on how many ballots poll watchers can challenge. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, a Republican, has indicated he will sign the law. In Georgia, the state's controversial new voting law makes it explicit that any Georgian can challenge the qualifications of an unlimited number of voters.

    Retrumplicans know they can't come up with many reasons why Americans should vote for them. Instead, they're doing all they can to make it harder for minorities to cast a ballot. The shameless, "win-at-all-costs" Retrumplicans know minorities tend to vote for Democrats.

    Another Retrumplican Governor has signed legislation intended to prevent election fraud – even though there was no election fraud in the 2020 election. The "win-at-all-costs" Retrumplicans are angry that a Democrat was elected President so they're doing everything they can to make it more difficult for minorities to vote.

    There was no voter fraud in the 2020 Presidential election – but that fact hasn't stopped Retrumplicans from imposing dozens of voting restrictions and claiming the intent is to prevent voter fraud. Retrumplicans' true purpose is to make voting much more difficult for minorities and the elderly. In Texas, the Retrumplicans' voter suppression bill initially was touted as preserving "the purity of the ballot box," a phrase used to disenfranchise black voters following the Civil War. Retrumplicans wound up removing the phrase. It made their anti-black stance way too obvious.

    GOP lawmakers ultimately decided not to advertise the segregationist nature of the voting measure.

    Retrumplicans tried – and failed – to overturn the results of a free and fair Presidential election. Retrumplicans' "Plan B" is to make it much more difficult for minorities and the elderly to cast a ballot. Retrumplicans have introduced more than 400 bills, in 48 states, that would impose new restrictions on voting. New restrictions have already been enacted in Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Montana, Utah and Wyoming. Democrats want to make it easier for people to vote – and Retrumplicans are 100% opposed. Let us hope voters remember this in 2022 and 2024 and prevent Retrumplicans from regaining control of the House and Senate.
