Don't it make my red states blue!

Hurrah! Hurrah! We bring the jubilee!
Hurrah! Hurrah! The flag that makes you free!
So we sang the chorus from Atlanta to the sea!

While we were marching through Georgia!

The Georgia counties turning the state blue are growing. And quickly.
February 28, 2021
Last week, David Perdue announced he would not run to recapture his Senate seat in Georgia for the Republicans. Many in the political class wondered why a strong candidate with deep family ties and a history as an incumbent would take a pass at a chance to run again.​

The answer might lie in broader political changes in Georgia itself.​
While Joe Biden's presidential win in the state and the Senate victories of Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff were heralded as surprises in the last election cycle, a closer look at recent election data in the state shows they might be breakthroughs to a new norm, rather than simple 2020 shockers...​
Biden did about 2.5 points better than Obama in the state, getting nearly 50 percent of the vote, while Obama didn't quite get to 47 percent in 2008...​
[W]hen Hillary Clinton was the Democratic nominee, she received more than 45 percent of the vote in the state. That number was higher than the 43 percent and 41 percent that Democratic nominees Al Gore and John Kerry won in the state respectively in 2000 and 2004.​
The reality is that the vote in Georgia has moved considerably in the last dozen years...​
[S]even counties around Atlanta hold challenges for the GOP. They are very diverse, most have high percentages of college graduates and, perhaps most important, all of them are growing, and quickly.
Right now, Georgia looks a bit like Virginia did 12 years ago, a southern state being changed by a big, diversifying, educated metropolitan center. When Obama won Virginia in 2008, it was the sign of a deeper, long-term change afoot there.​
After the level of popular participation in the November election and the runoffs in January, and after threatening the Republican Secretary of State and his family failed to force him to falsify the legitimate results, the Republican-controlled Georgia legislature is desperately trying to erect barriers to prevent expression of the prevailing political sentiment, but demographic shifts in Georgia are inexorably following the pattern of Virginia.

It's true that Georgia went overwhelmingly for Biden, but you shouldn't assume it is totally blue yet. Trump brought out opposition votes that might not have been there if not for the need to shed that pig. We've shown what can be done, so now we need to continue working hard to guarantee it will be done again.

Since you mentioned Virginia, let's not forget you are still enthusiastically supporting this guy as their governor:

No surprise!

The future United States of America will be Georgia writ large.

If that's what the American people want, then let them have it.

Your attempted diversion, however desperate, fails since I have never expressed support, enthusiastic or otherwise, for the Governor of the Commonwealth. I defer to the good people of Virginia to critically assess their candidates and determine worthiness.

Yes, your fellow DemoKKKrats in VA love the klansman, and here you are as expected defending him.

Crackpot sources that pander to your ideological perversions are dismissed by responsible folks, Republican officeholders included.

Allegations of election fraud in Georgia remain unsubstantiated after multiple vote counts, legislative hearings and court cases.

No one trusts GA officials. The recounts were just counting illegal votes again. The audits were done by a company that has worked with Dominion for years. A huge conspiracy and massive fraud.

Now tell me about the DOJ or the FBI. Neither investigated a thing. Wait, the FBI did investigate two semis of ballots that went across state lines. They ended up harassing the family of the whistle blower and and explanation of the ballots was never given. They have not explained it, and it did happen.

Why?

You are free to be paranoid concerning Georgia's elected Republican officeholders. You have not been authorized to project your paranoia onto everyone, even if you need to do so in a futile attempt to simulate legitimacy for your fake claim.
... The recounts were just counting illegal votes again. The audits were done by a company that has worked with Dominion for years. A huge conspiracy and massive fraud.
You are merely spewing the lies you have been fed by your propaganda masters. There are no legitimate sources to sustain the pipe dream you have been issued.

Verified Voting, the non-governmental, nonpartisan organization focused on the role technology plays in election
administration (verifiedvoting.org/about/), shows 24 states where Dominion Voting products were used in
November 2020, including six states that Trump won, such as Louisiana, Iowa, Missouri and Ohio (here ).
Reuters recently debunked other false claims that Dominion Voting Systems software “glitched” the election
in favour of Biden ( here ).
Now tell me about the DOJ or the FBI. Neither investigated a thing. Wait, the FBI did investigate two semis of ballots that went across state lines. They ended up harassing the family of the whistle blower and and explanation of the ballots was never given. They have not explained it, and it did happen.

Why?
Why do you need to fantasize, without any credible evidence, of a vast, coordinated, clandestine conspiracy throughout America, carried out with ruthless efficiency by the FBI, the DOJ, numerous officeholder of both political parties - governors, secretaries of state, attorneys general, other election officials, and dozens of judges - including the Cry Baby Loser's appointees - and even his own sycophantic Attorney general and obeisant Vice President?

Such an absurdly ubiquitous plot is delusional when the reality is so blatant: Most American voters reflected the relentless disapproval expressed in numerous independent public surveys throughout four years, and voted him out of office at their first opportunity. That farcical, evidence-free "landslide!" whopper was especially hilarious in light of the consistent unpopularity of the egomaniacal former guy.

Yes, George Soros summoning them all to a pedophile pizza party at Area 51 via a network of Navajo Code Talkers and asserting vulcan mind control over them all is a far more entertaining notion. If one wishes to fully embrace such self-serving prejudices, anything is possible in that alternative reality.

If the Big Lie accommodates your needs and you cannot handle the truth, you can embrace the Big Lie passionately, but it is still the Big Lie.
