The 2020 election in the state of Georgia was very controversial as many questions came up about the integrity of the vote. There were concerns that ballots were scanned multiple times, mysterious suitcases full of ballots being counted after GOP observers had left. That sort of thing. Absentee and mail in ballots were counted in spite of lack of identification requirements. 1.3 million voters in Georgia mailed in absentee ballots in the 2020 election. There was understandably a long delay in election results being certified.

U.S. Representative Marjorie Taylor-Greene said the reforms were essential because too many absentee ballots were “mailed in without verification. She said you have to show an I.D. to buy alcohol, to buy tobacco, to show and have a driver’s license to drive. President Joe Biden promptly labeled the bill “Jim Crow in the 21st Century, and claimed it was an atrocity. ( having to show ID? ) and said the Justice Department was “taking a look as well.

Naturally, Major League Baseball is going to remove their tournament, movie people will just not film their movies in Georgia, but in China instead. Delta Airlines made a stink until the Assembly mentioned reducing their discount on aviation gasoline. There was lots more childish behavior, but I was struck by the ignorance and the refusal to be bothered with studying up slightly to find out what they were talking about. That seems to be the nature of flaps or protests these days, and it’s more than a bit frightening to discover just how our nation is being run.

Why Did The Democratic South Become Republican?? by The Elephant's Child

I saw another article just today claiming that the President’s Advisory Commission on Election Integrity was a Republican attempt to prevent people of color from voting. One should expect that from the crowd that attacks whatever Republicans say or do with shrieks of “Racist,””Sexist,” etc. etc.They were incensed when the President suggested that there was some vote fraud, denied that any such thing could happen, but of course Trump was right.

His commission was designed to assure that every vote counts, but doesn’t count twice. Progressives resist any such investigation.
