"Republicans are slowly killing our country."

Not much left of it after Liberals have had their way. We can't even do anything to rebuild it because "we didn't build that" in the first place, amirite?

Not much left? Clinton, as much as I couldn't stand him, handed Bush a no deficit, low debt economy. Since then, it has not ever been as good as it is today, except for the debt, due entirely to Bush's war, Bush's tax cuts, trump's tax cuts, and trump's spending.

It's hardly a surprise that a supporter of insurrection would want to void fair elections.

"Who needs Democracy anymore?"

@#10 ... "Who needs Democracy anymore?" ...

From the cited article...

... An Arizona lawmaker wants to give the state Legislature the power to appoint presidential electors regardless of who wins the popular vote.

Currently, the candidate who wins the popular vote gets Arizona's electors.

They then cast their votes on the same day in December alongside all the other electors across the country.

Senate Concurrent Resolution 1014 would override that process entirely.

Instead, the Arizona legislature would have the sole authority to appoint the presidential electors -- regardless of which candidate actually received the most votes. ...


Ironically, but par for the course for Republicans, the GOP is complaining about Colorado following the Constitution and removing fmr Pres Trump from the ballot because the voters should be allowed to decide.

But, now it seems, in Arizona when the State Legislature disagrees with what the voters have decided, it is OK to void the will of the voters.

Why are Republicans so afraid of voters?

They can see the writing on the wall and they do NOT like what it spells out.

"This is the way it should be done. State by state."

If my state has a drinking age of 21, and the neighboring state has a drinking age of 18, can I cross state lines to have a beer?

Or can you forbid me from doing that, and offer a bounty on anyone assisting me? Note: I'm not talking about getting smashed. One beer.

Auxiliary question: If I live up river from you, in another state, can I pollute, since it'll wash away from my area?

Don't some states now track the movements of pregnant women because they're property of the state?

It's amazing how the staunchly anti communist Republican Party is literally treating people like the state owns them.

Republicans are re tar did.

"can I cross state lines to have a beer?"

Sure! As long as I can sue you or anyone who helps you for $10,000. Right?
