  1. Democrat’s breaking quorum, over voting rights, is tantamount to an admission against interest. As they enjoy and exercise the right/privilege of normative quorum voting rules, safeguarding the manifest value of their individual house votes. Whilst simultaneously working to subvert and deny the Texas citizenry similar voting protections, via the imports of their proposed “voting rights” legislation and quorum breaking walk out. Accordingly, democrat’s current “quorum breaking” stance is contradictory and irreconcilable with the subject matter of their proposed “voting rights” legislation. (Estoppel in Pais)

  2. When you veto or filibuster a piece of legislation that's a part of the democratic process, walking out of your job and away from your constitutional duties, isn't. There might be a slight comparison, but it's not the same.

  3. Texas Democrats: To us it’s not voter integrity if minorities vote for republicans. We have owned their asses forever via welfare entitlements etc. It’s not fair if they then vote for the other party. That’s all we’re saying. U feel us??

  4. Democrats with the support of the media will lie to you , the bill just reinforces and strengthens the voting process. I didn't see one thing in it that says about discriminates vs minorities. Democrats will use racism for everything, they will lose the house in 2022 and possibly the senate.. Dems racism claims are getting old, I know because I used to vote for them until seeing they use the color of the skin.

  5. I dunno, Doesn’t Colorado require a photo copy of a state ID with a mail in ballot? But Texas recommends just writing down the number of a state or federal ID on your mail in ballot, and suddenly it’s restricting the vote and is a civil war? Dramatic Democratic National Socialists

  6. good, GOP grifters shouldn't be able to make voting harder without a fight. i fully support this and any republican who sees a problem with these reps leaving the state to protect voting should go talk to ted cruz about fleeing to cancun while people in our state died due to the snowstorms and power outages.

  7. Oh I love how these radical liberals talk about protecting democracy. They’ve been destroying democracy for decades. They’ve somehow been able to brainwash a lot of the country into believing their lies and garbage. Governor Abbet is doing a great job. I hope he arrests every single coward/Democrat that fled the state because they weren’t going to get their way. All states should require a voter ID to vote. If you don’t have an ID like a drivers license, then you have a Social Security number. If you don’t have a Social Security number, then you probably shouldn’t be allowed to vote. It’s that simple. I’m not sure how that’s restricting in anyway. The United States has a process to obtain citizenship. Nothing is free.

  8. I vote in Ohio. We had to show ID for as long as I can remember. No one in our part of the state ever complained. Black or White.
    Democrats are pushing this CRAP so they can cheat, rig, buy ballots, dump ballots, abuse absentee ballots by fraud, intimidate people at the polls.
    This providing voters at the polls with water, is a bunch of bullshit, vote then go get something to drink elsewhere. Never heard of anything so freaking stupid.
    Give it to the Democrats to come up with this kind of garbage to stir people up. They think their Democrat voting base is ignorant. Jim Crow this and Jim Crow that.
    The Democratic Party WROTE THE JIM CROW LAWS !!!! The Democrats STARTED THE KU KLUX KLAN !!! THE Democrats BEAT THE HELL OUT OF BLACK DEMONSTRATORS CROSSING THE EDMUND PETTIS BRIDGE !!!!! READ YOUR AMERICAN HISTORY !!! Don't be stupid like they think you are!!!!! Research the history before the Marxist remove it from the history books.

  9. " (Trumpian) Texas lawmakers advance voting restrictions…" thereby reminding us, yet again, that #Jan621 Insurrectionist #DJT is "utterly incompetent" as per the words of both his own Federal Judge elder-sister Maryanne Trump Barry and his own Clinical Psychologist niece Dr. Mary Trump. May #Imp2POTUS45 always hear "You're fired" via the unwavering reality of election results that reject him who is the cause of #MourningInAmerica.

  10. We all know the game, allow the border crossings and make those non citizens vote blue, turning Texas blue unfairly. Somehow you agree with that. Texas says no and they can according to the U.S. Constitution.
