All right, folks. We’re live now with this effort to help the folks in Georgia win their 2 US Senate run-off elections. Please watch the video for all the details and contact Rights Watch and Grass Roots North Carolina if you would like to pitch in and help us spread the word all over the country.

I sent in some donation for the two republican candidates and the recount audit effort.

Really need republican poll watchers as the democrat play is to prevent inspection of the ballots.

What have you done, personally, in the past 30 days to advance gun rights? How about the last 90 days? Year? I mean, besides tell us all just how stupid we are for continuing the fight here on GT. I’m going to take a WAG and say zero. Nada. Zilch.
Your WAG is wrong in my case. I’ve contributed to Republican races including both of Georgia’s US Senate runoff campaigns. These races are critically important, but GT interest seems much lower than it should be.

Everyone will get excited when the Democrat controlled Senate starts passing sh!tty legislation that undermines everything Trump accomplished and starts us down the road to ruin.

Maybe we’ve given up. Or, maybe we’re just better at talking than actually doing something to help the country avoid certain disaster.

I was only referring to the resident leftists troll.

I hope your thread gains traction and results in real support for Georgia’s runoff candidates. I understand both races are tied at this point.

Could someone please explain to me why Black People vote for Democrats when that socialist party created the Klu Klax Klan to STOP the Black People from becomeing and having the same equal rights as white people do. The KKK from the end of the CIVIL WAR to 1964-65 murdered horriblely more than six thousand five hundred Blacks plus more than 500 after ‘64-65. Ninty percent of Democrats from the.SOUTH serving in Congress were members of the KKK. That M-F’er Robert Bryd was the GRAND A—HOLE of the KKK for decades and only after the FBI became HOT on the scent did he drop out!!!!! NO BS,it is historical FACT!!!! A whole Lott’a Blacks have to be dumber than a BOXCARR full of Hammers!

The insanity of people voting Democrat rests in several issues:
White/Black/Purple people on the government teat
These groups have generationally grown up with the family waiting for uncle sugar to send the check.

They listen to the poverty pimps who show up for a couple days, pass out a little $ to the community organizers and they are whipped up til the next visit or perceived wrong in the community.

IMHO

Its not just here on GlockTalk. I live in Georgia and based on my zip code have been getting bombarded by texts from various left wing groups offering to "help" me vote by doing everything but fill out the absentee ballot and sign it for me. I might be getting calls too but don't answer my phone unless I recognize the number. I get snail mail from the RNC and other conservative groups and emails from the NRA but based on what I am seeing the money and enthusiasm is on the side of the soft on crime, anti-gun, the government can never spend enough money Democrats. Bth sides seem to have infinite money for TV ads.

The Democrats have a much better ground game. The "Young black male voter project" is convinced I am a young, black, Democrat voting male named Micheal (wrong on 4 out of 5 counts) and will not stop sending texts until whoever used my number gets an absentee ballot. Replying STOP does nothing and the texts come from different numbers every time so blocking them does no good. They either have a lot of volunteers using their personal phones or are spoofing the return number the way scammers do. I suspect the latter. I am not sure where getting out the vote crosses over into voter coercion and intimidation but I bet a lot of people are voting just to make all the damn texts stop. Voting is something that should be taken seriously, not something people do to quit getting nagged and treat voting as seriously as they would a Facebook poll for ranking puppies in order of cuteness. They don't know anything about the issues except what they read on social media, don't really care but this year might be voting anyways.

It used to be Republicans always won big in runoffs because so many Democrats didn't care enough to to take 30 minutes out of their day to vote. They still don't but the bar for voting is now so low they probably will anyways. There were a lot of people that were anti-Trump voters that will sit the runoff out. But there pro-Trump voters that are going to do the same. The lack of enthusiasm and defeated attitude of Republicans here is depressing. We are acting like the runoff is already lost and are just going through the motions and that can be a self fulfilling prophecy.

Your report doesn’t sound promising for the Republican candidates. The Democrats smell blood, so they are rising to the occasion.

I hope you will volunteer for phone duty or some other effort to help and encourage Georgia Republicans to vote in January.

I’m reading your Senate races are about even at this point. Help is needed. Money is needed. If the Democrats win, America will be changed just as Schumer promises. We can’t let that happen!

I sent in donations to both Republican senate candidates and I'm here in TX. I hope the Georgia folks are also doing the best they can.
