  1. It’s no dang wonder people are upset at the results of the Georgia elections, when so many absentee voters voted Liberal compared to conservative. This was a stolen election, by cheating the system and getting absentee ballots for dead people, Alzheimers patients, nursing home patients, moved out of state relatives, and non-existent people or pets that voted. These Democrats will lie, cheat, or steal, anything and everything to get their way, and Georgia’s lawmakers left the election wide open for them to do just that. We now have to live with 4 years of give aways that will create a huge hardship on all other American’s forever. The making of DC and Porta Rico into Democrat States will cost the rest of America 100s of Millions or Billions of dollars a year forever, and make it easy for the Democrats to load the SCOTUS with 4 or 5 more liberals. And the 11 to 30 Million liberal illegals will cost 10s Billions in freebees forever. So people, sorry we old people didn’t have representatives that would stop this, but we will die in 1 to 10 years, and most of you will have to live with these sad situations for the rest of your lives and your children’s lives until China takes over America. So very sad that there is no way to turn this around, because so many of these things are NOT reversible.

  2. I do believe the mail in ballot has inherent problems. There must be sufficient controls to keep election integrity. A data base must be in place to rule out those who vote more than once, are deceased or those who are not residents of GA. A random audit of addresses and voter information may help. If the potential voter can not be located, their vote should not be accepted. Perhaps the deadline for mail in votes should be before the election and a random audit weed out fraudulent or missing information. If information is missing the vote and or registration should be thrown out. The information is there for a purpose. Cameras and voter regulations should be maintained during the counting of votes.
