Elections ‘More Fair’

Original Article

A majority of Americans believe basic voter ID requirements, such as requiring a valid photo ID prior to casting a ballot, would make elections “more fair,” despite the steady stream of mischaracterizations from top Democrats, who contend that such requirements are oppressive and akin to the Jim Crow era. The survey provided a series of potential rules a state could implement regarding voting and asked respondents to rate if the suggested rule would make elections “more fair,” “less fair,” or the same. Notably, 64 percent of respondents said requiring voters to provide photo identification before casting a ballot would make elections “more fair,” compared to

Yep. But the LAST thing that the Dems want is for an election to be fair! That would be a total failure from their viewpoint.

Of course the last Must Read on CA says it all. Looks like they're going to pay a price for electing the Progressive Governor they're now trying to get rid of. He's saying, "not until I do a bit of payback before I leave my office:! Wonder if people will ever learn that the word "Progressive" is not a good thing!!

So if the CNN poll says 64%... you can bet it's more like 84%...most Americans know this 2020 election was a fraud on the was stolen from President Trump and WE the people were the losers...doesn't surprise me that Americans want fair and free elections... and voter ID is the only way WE can assure a legal count... in addition... WE want paper ballots and NO dominion voting machines doing the tally... only legal poll watchers counting the results....back to truth, justice, and the American way...

Racist democrats think the requirement for ID is "oppressive" because black people are incapable or too stupid. Liberals are a bunch of racist pigs who view everything through skin color, everything.

The COVID crises was used to eliminate many voting regulations that provided election integrity. Most of these changes were unconstitutional because they were not made by the state legislatures. Restoring election integrity is being fought tooth and nail by Democrats and their backers only. This makes it much easier for them to cheat in elections.

Hannah, I would prefer that those with IDs also be American citizens who were either born here or are naturalized citizens and who followed our immigration laws and applied for citizenship. None of this amnesty stuff. And each voter must dip an index finger in blue ink after voting - just like Iraq does.

So the CNN poll results had to be lowered so as to not present the real results showing the poll numbers were about 80 percent in favor of photo id.

AUSTIN, Texas — Austin voters have approved Proposition B, which aims to reinstate the public camping ban that was reversed in July 2019. The results were 57% to 43%, with the majority voting to approve the proposition. The camping ban makes it illegal to camp in any public area not designated by the Parks and Recreation Department; to sit or lie on a public sidewalk or sleep outdoors in and near the downtown area and the area around the University of Texas campus; and to panhandle at specific hours and locations.

The Environmental Protection Agency is set to issue wide-reaching regulations on Monday to curb the use and production of greenhouse gases from the refrigeration and air conditioning industries. The new regulations will target the production and importation of hydrofluorocarbons—commonly known as HFCs. The chemical compound was first developed in the 1980s to replace more harmful greenhouse gasses that depleted the earth’s ozone layer. EPA Administrator Michael Regan will propose that U.S. will curb HFCs emissions 85% by 2035. “With this proposal, EPA is taking another significant step under President Biden’s ambitious agenda to address the climate crisis,” Mr. Regan said. “The phasedown of HFCs
