  • Proud Alaskan says:

    More cheating stealing of elections-mail in voting
    One vote in person with ID on election Day end of story

  • Tom Nanook says:

    Recall efforts are out of control, are rarely successful, and every attempt weakens democracy, no matter which “side” is being recalled.

  • Dane Wyrick says:

    Democrats are weakening democracy

    • Evan S Singh says:

      It was Trump loving Republicans, not Democrats, who sought to hang Vice President of the United States of America on January 6. At very least, that was an attempt to weaken democracy.

      Democrats have their faults, but they are not Capitol rotunda floor poopers.
