    Nah. US might, but we'd go on without you.

    We already do have it, and many shootings have happened even when the laws on the books should have prevented them from happening

    Here's the interesting story for anyone who says there vote doesn't matter:

    Let's think the unthinkable, let's do the undoable. Let us prepare to grapple with the ineffable itself, and see if we may not eff it after all.

    Wow, sounds like we should have more laws and public officials to make sure existing laws are followed.

    “Government isn’t enforcing the law”
    ”Wow we need more laws then!”
    Or maybe we just need government to do its job

    "People aren't following speed limits and causing car crash!"

    "Wow maybe we need we to legislate more safety technologies in cars or highways or build speed cameras"

    "Maybe we just need the government to do its job"

    Or maybe we need to be comfortable with discussing how to address the issue of guns, instead of you know, banning the CDC from researching the issue. Electing candidates who will vote "No" on anything and refuse to talk about it. I can see why you're happy about the Democrat not being elected.

    Anyone following the drama in NC 09?

    https://www.vox.com/platform/amp/pol...-bladen-county

    Long story short...irregularities have cause a bipartisan commission to unanimously refuse to certify the victory of a republican candidate. May lead to a new vote pending an investigation.

    Will be interesting if the only serious documented case of voter fraud happened in a Republican victory

    The scandal in North Carolina continues to grow.

    We finally have an ACTUAL election fraud and yet the Republicans are oddly silent because they did it. How odd.

    Combined with the absolutely that the GOP is pulling in Michigan and Wisconsin at the state level and it remains clear people should start getting locked up.

    What a bunch of cowards who can't stand to lose.

    But hey, the real voter fraud is in minority neighborhoods, so their votes have to be supressed amirite?

    I'm pretty sure voter fraud = minorities voting in ANY situation to Republicans so...probably.

    But this is election fraud. A much bigger deal...and one that will hopefully lead to the Republican candidate losing overall. Again..with all the thievery happening in Michigan and Wisconsin this is just icing on top of the anti-democratic cake.

    This isn't voter fraud. It's election fraud. Voter fraud is virtually non-existent. Though that certainly hasn't stopped the Texas GOP to attempt to make an example out of this poor woman. This doesn't serve to prove any of GOP's rhetoric, only serves to prove their inhumane cruelty (in before some conservative yaps about how much "better" our prisons are than living in Haiti). What this shows is the GOP is not at all concerned with the election process and never was. This is all about political power, pure and simple. The numerous allegations and suspicious circumstances of voter suppression and election fraud prove that.

    They don't care at all. The Republican Party is so crooked right now it's unbelievable that people don't see it. Their actions in states such as North Carolina, Michigan, and Wisconsin show as much.

    Speaking of which...The Dem candidate from NC-09 has officially withdrawn his concession.

    I hope he ultimately wins. These Republican s need to be shown the door.

    Fair's fair, NC is as republican as it is. And the Dems haven't made as much noise as you think they have. The appointments in the state board of elections in the...well...past decade will favor republicans. And they're hounding this line a god damn dog. Let me put it this way. They're not Chicago. They're not even neutral like Florida which has it's own problems. There are states that accept that they're going to make national news for awkward stories. There's like...three of them. North Carolina isn't really traditionally among them. The fact that this is happening is screwing with them and they're dealing with this BS even if it means they have to send a Democrat to Congress.

    To point. North Carolina don't want national news. Or. To wit. When they have national news it best be about the fact that Duke won the national championship. Not this . They'll clean this up.
