It’s 2022’ LTC David Brown some lessons are loss, some are learned from. It’ll never be another repeat, ever.

Voter suppression was spark that ignited Ocoee Massacre. A century later, Florida’s Black voters are still facing obstacles

CPL LaForest Gray - I can not do anything about the past. To think that what went on one hundred years ago is what is happening today is ridiculous. When I started voting poles were open from 7 am to 7 pm one day period. You could vote absentee if you were out of state. Now we can vote weeks before an election, mail in voting, I can not any imaging this is voter suppression.

The Voting law have work for a very long time but it's 2as not 7ntil Trump ran we saw dead people started vote and now felon illegals and people voting to two county and how did China sneak votes in via FedEx to Atlanta GA. Seem just the other way to me from the law that have stood for so long without any funny business.

The problem with citations to back any argument is biased based on the source and the lack of journalistic investigation. The rush to be the first in the story is the main reason for errors in almost all online stories or broadcast stories. Regardless their is biased in reporting across all reporting spectrum. Reading and citing stories from both sides of the spectrum will lead closer to the truth. As both sides will write it to slant it to their favor. Heck even NPR is slanted. So citing a single political story to prove anyone's belief. Is actually insignificant as both sides can find a story to fit the needs to prove the story right. The real question for georgia is has anyone read the recently passed law. Or any others states law on voting. As each state has the right to decide how voting is to be conducted. I personally didn't know that washington has been using mail in ballots for many years, after having spent time and money to scrub the voting rolls and have mechanisms in place the keep them accurate. And no I'm not in Washington state I live in TN. And yes I did read the law to allow washington to do all mail in if they want. Doing our own research is best and will get the most accurate info. Not some story from online from some organization or person who has bias as we all have bias. Getting tired of the politics in here. Everyone needs to read and research more closer to the horses mouth and something someone else said or wrote. Remember your military training no plan survives first contact and get as much Intel you can.
