UCwWhs_6x42TyRM4Wstoq8HA

Brian Kemp, the Republican candidate for governor of Georgia, has made efforts to hold up 53,000 voter registrations, 70% of which belong to black voters, all while maintaining his job as Georgia’s secretary of state, a role in which he oversees the very election he’s running in. This is some Africa-level s**t.

In Australia it's illegal to not vote in an election but in United States it seems like it's legal to prevent you to vote in an election.

When you see things like this, sometimes you wonder how much things have changed in 50+ years. In the pre-Voting Rights Act South blacks had to take literacy tests in order to vote that were filled with trick questions and convoluted syntax (“Write right from the left to the right as you see it spelled here.”) and the tests had to have a perfect score. They claimed it was for anyone who couldn't prove a they had a certain level of education, but whites generally didn't have to take the test thanks to a "grandfather" clause in the law (i.e., you could vote if your ancestors voted). Here we are in 2018 and the methods are different, but the same crap is going on.

As someone who lives in a country where voter registration is completely automatic, I am baffled by the American system.
In my country, the national registry has your social security number, and when you move, you let them know so they have your new address. Whenever there's an election or a referendum, you get an individual voter card sent to you in the mail automatically - which btw, also helps encourage young people to vote, because it reminds them they're allowed and that their opinion matters. The voter card has your information on it as well as the info about when and where to vote.

How is this not the norm in every civilized country? Why should every adult citizen not be encouraged to vote, every single time? Corruption is why. You need to change your representatives and make sure they protect your voting rights. If your representatives are messing with the right of any adult citizen's right to vote, they are eating away at your democracy. You shouldn't put up with it.

Brian Kemp should have to give up his position of Secretary of State while he runs for Governor. This is conflict of interest!

"DEMOCRACY" lol and the world is supposed to look up to that?
*One person - one vote.* It's that simple. How y'all make it happen is none of our business.

This is more proof that Republicans are incapable of winning elections without cheating. Voter suppression in Georgia. Felony disenfranchisement in Florida. Gerrymandering in red states across the country. Russians hacking the 2016 general election. It's a good thing that Democrats are steadily outnumbering Republicans. Eventually they can't even win by cheating.

This one of Trevor's funniest bits.
Too bad that this shit is really happening, though. There has to be some legal recourse to stop Kemp.

Trevor Noah need to start using props like his chair more. Jon Stewart used to do stuff like that all the time and that was one of his funniest characteristics! XD

Republicans, are using the name but are acting like Fascist.
Every passing day, the actions of the GOP are getting closer to Russia governing.
Like tax reform, the big lie, and time after time people fall for it.
This new party of racists and liars are getting bolder by the day.
They seem to destroy Democracy in bits and pieces.

Georgia reached cheating levels that are not even possible. it should be illegal to be in charge of the election while running at the same time.
