The Republicans do not appear to be able to win without cheating. As the size of their party diminishes, they have used gerrymandering to design deep-sea-creature-like voting districts favorable to their candidates. In the 2016 elections, Donald Trump had to enlist a foreign government, one that was and continues to be America’s enemy, to help him win. In other words, POTUS stood on the knife-sharp edge of traitorous activities — all to beat former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

If Trump had not won in the last presidential election, the former senator would be president now. She was beyond prepared to take over from the beginning. Certainly, she would not be siccing military troops onto peaceful protesters now. Even so, she remains a controversial figure.

If the governor of Georgia Brian Kemp had not suppressed the vote, Stacey Abrams would have been the governor now. When Kemp was the Secretary of State of the Peach State, he ran for governor and just happened to be in charge of the integrity of the election, too. What could go wrong?

The state deleted 300,000 “inactive” voters from the Voting Registration Lists for the 2018 governor’s race targeting minority voters., according to CNN. This month, the state implemented new voting machines months before the latest election. Voters found broken machines, untrained workers, and long lines.

One of the people on the ballot requested a write-in ballot for himself and his wife, but they never arrived. So the couple had to go vote in the middle of a coronavirus pandemic. They waited five hours in line, others sat in downpours. The candidate was oncerned about the older residents, single mothers without babysitters, and people with disabilities all who had to literally risk their lives to exercise their right to vote. Of course, the incidents only occurred in minority communities

Trump canceled. the federal Voting Rights Act when he came into office. Fortunately, Secretary Clinton sounded a warning bell about what went wrong in Georgia Tuesday. She tweeted, calling the state out for what it did “voter suppression” and a “threat to our Democracy:”

‘What happened in Georgia yesterday was by design. Voter suppression is a threat to our democracy.’

Then, the secretary urged people to “join @onwardtogether” and “@marcellias” to fight for their voting rights. After all, the Republicans do not want to lose the Senate or the presidency. Clinton tweeted:

Commit now to help make sure no voter is disenfranchised by long lines, broken machines, or failed systems this fall. Join @OnwardTogether & @MarcEElias in the fight for voting rights by signing up for Democracy Docket, an onramp for the action we need.’

Fair Fight Action Spokesperson Seth Bringman said:

“‘n our view, it is a First Amendment right not to vote, and it is unconstitutional to take away a Georgian’s right to vote simply because they have not expressed that right in recent elections. 309,000 is the total purge. This also includes people who had returned mail, passed away, or informed the state that they moved. In our view, these are appropriate reasons for a Georgia voter to be removed from the rolls, but ‘use it or lose it’ is not.’

Twitter world lit up after Secretary Clinton posted these tweets. Take a look at some of our favorites below. As usual for her, responses are mixed:
