    I would be furious if Democrats did it - I won’t sit quietly by and ignore it when Republicans do it. Trying to steal elections is an atrocity. It undermines self-governance and the sacrifices made by those who fought and/or died for this nation. The Republican Party should remove every single person who was involved in this.

    Well “bathroom issues” are important. I don’t think the GOP should sit idly by while the left rejects science, biology, and reality in order to serve up victims to sexual predators. In fact, I would put “bathroom issues” far above economic issues because it is a matter of public safety.

    Demographics change and of course some of it has been artificially created by moving certain segments to certain areas in order to make "red states" blue......part and parcel is Iowa. The declining population by mandate of the federal "gubermint"
    necessitated the movement of people from overcrowded welfare types from suburbs in Illinois into small cities like Charles City, Iowa. That town was the epitome of a Norman Rockwall painting. It had a devastating tornado back in May of 1968 that wiped out the downtown area but it came back.......now? It's become a crime ridden shithole. The disease was bused, subsidized and that has been something that has been going on for 20 plus years in other small towns and burgs via U.N mandates.......but if you talk out against it? The leftard clown posse will pull out the "RACIST" card...........my reply? Fuck you.........

    No argument there. And we as a nation need to clean both up.
    How could an extension to unemployment cost the state “zero”? That defies all basic reason.

    It simply takes away the incredible power we were suppose to be given with ''one man, one vote'', and the equality for all, that one man, one vote, gives us all...

    I think non partisan computer programs to redistrict congressional districts with smooth borders, when the population has changed is going to be the best way to end this crapola!
