"I don't trust Democrats, I think they are going to try to get every vote they can get"

They just keep saying the quiet part out loud.

They just played a clip on MSNBC of Lt. Gov of Texas - Dan Patrick saying that. This is what he is saying in defense of voter suppression tactics.

1. "We in the GOP really don't care about the votes: we just want to win!

If we can win with fewer votes, it's fine with us! And if we lose with fewer votes, we can riot!"

2. Isn't that the whole point of a political campaign?

And the purpose of political campaigns is to persuade people that your policies and ideas are better so they will vote for you - and get every vote you can get. But the GOP knows most people don't like their policies and ideas, so they just try to keep people from voting for Democrats instead of trying to persuade people to vote for them.

8. Ya think? But I suppose they want it to be upside down day everyday

We get less votes - we win
Kinda like how my niece says she wins every board game or any game that we play. Sometimes she tells me ahead of time that she's going to win. She makes up words when we play scrabble and tries to convince me those are real words. She's 7 though.....

She doesn't have a fully developed brain. I think republican legislators should have thoughts that are superior to a 7 yr old.

How about coming up with an actual plan or agenda and compete for votes. May the best ideas win. Stop catering to the religious right, racists, the NRA and companies that put profit over the environment.

4. Dem: "Hey, that's a good idea!"

"We were gonna just toss these votes, but hell, let's keep 'em instead!"

5. Only EVERY LEGAL vote....

What a dingbat.


IF you can't get enough votes without suppressing the majority, ya' don't deserve to win. PERIOD.


Cheaters are STILL losers if they have to cheat to win.

6. The treasonweasels really do have a problem with simple concepts just now, dont they?

How democracy works: well, were not quite sure what you mean there...

Dont fuck teenagers: well, that's just unacceptable, obviously.

If you murder someone on camera, you get to go to jail: OMG OUTRAGEOUS LIBERAL CANCEL CULTURE.

feel free to add your own; it's a fun game!!
