Rachel exposing voter suppression while hopefully there is still time to do something about it.

In GA, ND. She's doing a great job of detailing it as it is happening. This is different from any election I can remember. Usually media doesn't get to it till after the fact if my memory serves me correctly.

1. It's a done deal in ND.

6-2 Supreme Court gives ND the right to discriminate against us Native Americans. Which Dems ruled with the thuglican Supremes/didn't vote

I didn't think Heitkamp had a chance to retain her seat even before drunken, sexually assaulting Kavanaugh, was rammed onto the court, but now she has even less of a chance to retain her Senatorial seat unless the Native American tribe leaders can come up with a "solution" to get around the PO Box ID's by issuing Native Americans in DEEP blue areas of ND tribal ID's with street addresses instead of PO Box addresses.

Jesus. Us original inhabitants of this fucking country have already been rendered faceless and cheated by racist white people out of our land, and now they can't vote. Lord have mercy @ this country.

6. I believe they have a plan

I read that tribal leaders will be at the polls with laptop computers prepared to issue street addresses according to a computer program on the spot to people who get rejected for not having street addresses.

15. Yes iirc the Tribal Leaders can determine their own roads, so at least it isn't a case of having to

go to some Republican controlled body to get their permission.

One thought that occurred to me is that Rachel said that the majority of Postal Code voters were Dem supporting Native Americans, so Republicans are hoping for a net benefit. Are the Republicans doing the same on their side to get their PO voters a street address ? If not, there's potential for this to backfire.

9. How could the so-called "liberals" on the SCOTUS do this?

 

Only two votes?
WTF?

8. Republicans Don't Believe in Democracy and they Understand They Can't Win Elections Fairly

Cheating by whatever means necessary is the next logical step for them.

11. She's doing good work. After the major stink she made over Waller, TX not allowing students...

...at the local (historically black) college to vote, they somehow managed to solve the problem for this year. I'll bet you anything she's got a reminder on the calendar for the next election cycle.

Now she's taking on Georgia and North Dakota. Rachel is my hero.

14. I have tried to find where to donate to support the tribes efforts to get the voter Ids created

I haven't found a link yet, and will let you know. OJ Semens, the tribal member, Rachel Maddow interviewed, has a website, but there isn't a working donation link.

If anyone looks and can find it, please reply...

If these votes can be included and Heidi's campaign heads to a win, the potential impact for a real change back to a better USA is in sight.

Mind you, I'm emailing from CA, I'm unfamiliar with Native American organization, but want to help.

This is the facebook page for OJ Semens interviewed on Rachel's show tonight:
https://www.facebook.com/osemans?fref=pb&hc_location=friends_tab

This is the link to the website of the organization that OJ Semens is involved with, Four Directions:
http://www.fourdirectionsvote.com

I've also emailed Rachel's show asking to find out if they have that information.
