As early voting sets new midterms records Donald Trump attempts to frighten people away from the polls.

As those of us who can read know, voter fraud is virtually nonexistent in the real world and really only exists in the fevered dreams of the conservatives. 

So why is Trump issuing a warning about voter fraud and making a point of mentioning early voting? 

Well because voter registration is setting records all over the country right now, and early voting has taken off like a rocket. 

While early voters are not guaranteed to be Democrats, the majority of early votes do tend to lean toward the progressive candidates. 

That is bad news for Trump and his sycophantic GOP lapdogs. 

Which brings us to the ACTUAL threat to our votes.

Courtesy of The Hill:

Georgia officials removed an estimated 107,000 people from voter rolls because they decided not to vote in prior elections, according to a new report.

An APM Reports analysis found the voters were removed under the state’s “use it or lose it” law, which starts a process for removing people from voter rolls if they fail to vote, respond to a notice or make contact with election officials over a three-year period.

After that three-year span, those who don’t vote or make contact with authorities in two elections can be purged from the voter rolls under the Georgia law.

Such laws, generally enacted by GOP governments, have been growing more common, with at least nine states now having them, according to APM Reports.

While Trump and his cohorts attempt to distract you with talk of voter fraud, it is really voter suppression that is the real threat to our democracy. 

And yes that is definitely something that seems to happen only in states with Republicans in charge of the election process. 

So all we can do right now is get to the polls and vote in numbers that crush voter suppression beneath our democracy loving feet. 

We have done it before, and by Zeus, we can do it again!

    Trump Administration to say Transgendered do not exist. If you have a penis you’re a heterosexual male and a vagina a straight woman, no ambiguity. So if you were born with a Bible between your legs, that makes you a real Christian?

      And what about those born with both or neither?

    Are jared and steve bannon still registered to vote in two states?

    Little donnie can start to eliminate voter fraud in his home first.

      It’s not illegal to be registered in more than one state. It’s illegal to VOTE in more than one election.

      Again, it’s mostly REPUBLICANS doing this. Mostly white men that own property in two different states. (And in my opinion are small-gene-pool-stupid.)

    OT, but not really:

    Fuck You, Melania.

    THe scare tactics are positiviely juvenile. Someone in my neighborhood posted a picture of how her newspaper was defaced with comments and scare tactics written in repsonse to articles which were pro dem. Luckily she has a video security cam which she watched and then turned over to police to catch the person.
    Is this fifth grade??

      Whereas Mitch McConnell has TOLD us what he intends to do if he maintains a GOP majority: destroy the ACA, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security. And that’s just for starters. We know Roe v Wade will also be on their agenda.

    “Kilmeade is far from the only person on Fox News spreading misinformation about the migrant caravan. The network has hosted talking heads over the last few days to repeat talking points Former ICE supervisor Jason Piccolo told Fox News Monday that the military should be deployed the border “as soon as possible” — echoing a Trump tweet from last Thursday.”

    This is funny. As in hilarious.

    First, most early voters swing to the Republican side.

    And of the documented voter fraud that has been committed? They’ve been…..Republicans!

    But you’re right. This is an intimidation tactic aimed at naturalized citizens, voters of any color and minority and at Democrats. You better believe that their “eyes” will be at the polls in majority Blue districts. They don’t give a damn about voter fraud in red districts.
