Editor: Hey Delta and American Airlines: We’re asked to show an ID prior to boarding an airplane, why is it a problem to show an ID prior to voting? Am I missing something? Oh yeah, I must be a racist!.

So Bob, you think it is ok for a food truck with MAGA and Trump signs all over it, to park itself in front of a polling place and hand out free food and drink to people before they go in and vote?

Bob. You lefties act like you are so outraged about this small part of the law. What you lefties are really outraged about but won't say it, is darn, it will be a lot more tougher to cheat now. And there shouldn't be any long lines to vote in the first place. The law expands early voting, so unless some precincts are just inept at running elections, why are there lines?

Yeah,I just can't stop thinking about all the CNN stories during the last election in NOVEMBER of people collapsing right and left due to heat exhaustion and dehydration waiting in line.

Hey, Frank, the ID is not the problem in Georgia. This is -

SB2 states: "(a) No person shall solicit votes in any manner or by any means or method, nor shall any person distribute or display any campaign material, nor shall any person give, offer to give, or participate in the giving of any money or gifts, including, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, FOOD AND DRINK, to an elector, nor shall any person solicit signatures for any petition, nor shall any person, other than election officials discharging their duties, establish or set up any tables or booths on any day in which ballots are being cast – (1) Within 150 feet of the outer edge of any building within which a polling place is established; (2) Within any polling place; or (3) Within 25 feet of any voter standing in line to vote at any polling place."

Exactly what is the problem with those rules? Simply put leave the voters alone.
