With l ess t han five weeks to go before Election Day, two top House Republicans — Jim Jordan, ranking GOP member on the Judiciary Committee, and James Comer, ranking Republican on the Oversight Committee — have released a report warning widespread dysfunction with mail-in voting could “put at risk the integrity of the nation’s electoral process.”

The culprit: changes to state election laws and procedures, pushed by Democrats amid coronavirus concerns in the waning weeks before voting. States have long-established procedures for in-person voting. But now, the report says, “some Democrat-run states have belatedly changed election administration procedures and moved to all-mail balloting — meaning that as many as 44 million total ballots will be mass-mailed to registered voters with no assurance the ballots reach the right person.” The rushed schedule of changes gives many states no room for error as they attempt their first election with massive numbers of mail-in votes.

Democrats are sowing the seeds of a civil war. If there is any question about the legitimacy of the election it will lead to the destruction of the United States. Maybe thats the democrats end game.

"This year nine states — California, Colorado, Hawaii, Nevada, New Jersey, Oregon, Utah, Washington State and Vermont — as well as the District of Columbia, will have all-mail elections". With the exception for maybe Utah, all of these are Democrat leaning "states" anyway. What is the problem? I think the author just wants to crow about something and do some gaslighting.

This election is looking more like LBJ vs Goldwater all the time. Bulldog, who did you support in that one? Are you even old enough to vote now?

And, by the way sooner or later the USA WILL fail. Every great society in history has followed this path. Nothing last forever. But, maybe they don't teach that in Texas schools. You know the schools that teach you WHAT to think and not HOW to think.

🤔 don’t recall Biden calling the proud boys to action like trump did with stand back and stand by. Sounds like the civil war and destruction of our country that you are blaming the Democrats for seems to be spewing heavily from trump and his administration. Of course you’d blame everyone else though just like trump. You seem like an intelligent person Bulldog so it befuddles me as to why you can’t see that trump is sowing the seed of an illegitimate election.

It's not the proud boys that was destroying Portland and all the rest of the democrat cities. It was your people Antifa.

natives5

See how easy it was for you to deflect front trumps own words and blame democrats and the antifa movement? Portland is a hub for the proud boys btw. Antifa, My people...😂.

Bulldog

how many times does President Trump have to disavow white supremacists? He told Chris Wallace in 2016 he disavowed white supremacists and yet Chris asked him again. Biden said Antifa was an idea not a terrorist group. I never saw an idea swing a bat or burn a city down before

Bulldog

When did President Trump call anyone into action?

natives5

He should be able to clearly disavow white supremacy without any confusion or darn near choking on his lack of a real response any time he is asked. Sort of like Biden does when he’s accused of wanting to defund the police. Deny the lie and answer honestly. Pretty easy except when you can’t tell the truth. And of course you play ignorant with the “stand by” part of the response. Too tired to play your silly games.

You do know the leader of the Proud Boys is a Mexican American, and they are half Mexican Americans, with Asians, and Black people too, don't you?

natives5

He’s Cuban American and you are grasping for straws. Have a good day!

Bulldog

And you're posting false narratives

natives5

Point out the false narrative please.

Bulldog

You inferred the Proud Boys were a white supremacists group

natives5

You mentioned white supremacy when we were discussing your call to civil war comment. Sounds like you’re confused with all of your false narratives that you’re now projecting on me.

Byron has gone down the rabbit hole of conspiracies and deception. Bulldog, did you notice that it states the ballots go out to the registered voters? Now you can rest assured that the cats, dogs, and all other animals will not be voting. So due to lack of action on Covid policies by this administration and their insistence on tainting the elections, states have made changes to ensure those who are registered and want to vote can vote safely and NOW Jim Jordon is crying about rule changes. He wears his hypocrisy on his forehead. Curious, will y’all be concerned about fraud if trunk wins or is it only when Biden wins that it’s a concern?

Bulldog

What will you think when President Trump wins by a landslide on November 3rd and loses when the magical mail ballots are counted 3 months later? I'm telling you now if President Trump loses because of cheating there will be a very high and severe cost for everybody.

natives5

Here’s the deal, no matter what, when trump loses his base is going to hoot and holler fraud and cheaters and lock them up, yada yada...exactly the point of why trump is sowing the seeds you mention above. I knew you’d catch on.
