More cheating. Minnesota you must stop this!
I fully expect this will pass here, somehow, some way. This corrupted state has completely fallen under communist DFL control, and our GOP leadership and overall 'machine' is a joke.
Thank Jessie. Jesse Ventura was the alarm in this country not Trump. When Jesse won as an independent Minnesota he shocked them all. Go listen to what he has to say about when he was a governor. they were following him around and questioning him all day. Because he wasn't one of them. he wasn't supposed to win. The stuff that was coming out of his mouth was too close to home. So the deep state immediately went to work on Minnesota and it's worked ever since.
Jesse won and everything he did helped the DFL. Jesse got us that stupid lightrail boondoggle that turned our roads into a never ending series of potholes while all the money went into that stupid mass transit train. That lightrail basically just delivers inner city criminals to the Mall of America, the airport and provides transportation to down town rioters. The lightrail train stops are basically holding pens for the victims of violent criminals. That's the only thing Jesse accomplished.
You mean that's the only thing they let him accomplish. Go listen to almost every week when you went in front of the news cameras complained and pointed it all out like Trump was doing when he was president for 4 years. I'm not disagreeing with you. He didn't accomplish much. Go listen to what he said after they removed him from governorship and go listen to how he couldn't get anything passed and it was done on purpose. Go listen to how when he left the country for a vacation the FBI was and CIA were following him and his family. Crazy shit!! The threats were so bad that he left the country!! I don't think Jesse was a fantastic person I don't think he was a great governor. I just find his story real interesting and very coincidental. Kind of sounds like they did to Jesse what they did to Trump as a president but only as governor. Get what I'm saying
Yep, Jesse had a big mouth and said a lot of shit. He also lied to legislators on a regular basis. He burned all good will when he sent his staffers to work out a budget deal with the DFL and Republicans, gave assurances he's go along with the deal worked out, and then took a big novelty pig stamper and just stamped Pork, Pork, Pork all over the budget. It left Minnesota without a budget for over a year as eventually the DFL and the Republicans had to devise a veto proof budget to override Jesse. He mostly wouldn't even communicate with legislators and his staffers couldn't be trusted because Jesse changed his mind so often, they had to admit, they really didn't know what Jesse was going to do and what he wanted. He was really good at getting air time to insult people though.
Again sounds like Trump!!! I don't believe that he was changing his mind. I saw the press conferences I listened to his interviews. I know all the bullshit he said about the Marines and how he was this and but he wasn't at the time and special operations yada yada yada!! Yeah he lies just like everybody else. But the stuff that he was saying up there was no lie. The budgets and bills that they were giving him were bullshit. Or do you not remember the 1.4 trillion dollar Paul Ryan Trump bill from 2017. Again bullshit. Almost like it's done on purpose again no coincidences anymore!!
He was no more effective than Schwarzenegger.
I agree. They won't let that happen. Again it was like Trump.
I'm not sure who you talking about they won't let it happen.. if you're speaking whether ranked choice voting won't happen it will happen they have the majority in both houses they have the governor they have the Attorney General they have the Secretary of State they have United States Representatives that are predominantly either part of the uni party or Soros agents Minnesota is the Land of 10,000 George Soros agents it's disgusting the media is in bed with these criminals they get paid top dollar from our taxes here in Minnesota and federal taxes to push narratives to push governance under tyranny to push the socialist state
The conservatives are the Republicans what's left of any true Republican here in Minnesota because basically Minnesota's Republicans are all rhinos they will power and bow and let the Democrats commit this crime against the People by stealing a fair election forever by allowing ranked choice voting once that happens Minnesota will never be able to be turned back just like in Illinois California New York New Jersey Pennsylvania Massachusetts oh they'll let one or two rhinos in or maybe one or two true conservatives are true Republicans in but that's it not enough... They can pretty much pass anything they want at this point it doesn't matter if it's illegal or not they're going to do it because there's nobody in Minnesota within the government that's going to challenge this.. the people don't have a word they're silenced by the media and by the government
I don't disagree
FBI questioned him to find out how he won. You know so they can stop it the next time.
Well yeah, once you finally steal a government (be it state or federal), the #1 priority is to change the rules so your side never has to worry about losing it again.
Minnesota might the worst state in the country currently.. CA and NY are liberal shit holes but MN is electing Somali terrorists.
They aren't electing them. The Somali terrorists are paying each other to carry ballots. I think that O'Keefe had a video on this. No one elected Xiden. No one elected Incesthan Omar.
Minnesota: Even the Republicans are Democrats
I always figured that the DFL was formed when the west was starting to flirt with the idea of socialism in the early part of the 20th century. Imagine my surprise when this abortion came about right at the end of WWII, when the whole world was living through one of the greatest examples of "Socialism is Bad". The DFL is a prettified name for Socialism Inc.
Ranked choice voting is their next election stealing scheme after ballot harvesting and mail-in box stuffing.
MN is lost. Ever since we allowed vouching. Now we have gangs of Somali youths hitting multiple polls, vouching for each other, and voting multiple times. Seriously, here you go. Look up "vouching". https://www.sos.state.mn.us/elections-voting/register-to-vote/register-on-election-day/ "A registered voter from your precinct can go with you to the polling place to sign an oath confirming your address. This is known as 'vouching.' A registered voter can vouch for up to eight voters. You cannot vouch for others if someone vouched for you."
Omar holds meetings entirely in her own language tells her constituents that they will lose all benefits and be shipped back to Somalia if she loses.
Ellison and his son are bat shit crazy BLM and Antifa supporters.
My state is so fucked.
The problem is, like in NM, CO, MA, etc. Your largest city is your capital. So everyone has to agree with each other or lose their job.
They allowed the last few stolen elections in their state to go unchecked..this is their reward
Few? They've been stealing them for at least a decade. Al Franken was elected to the senate in 2008 after they "found" ballots in the trunk of a car.
All the states will be stolen in this manner
These election gimmicks sre designed to benefit demonrats
Ranked choice makes it incredibly easy to cheat
So no changes then, because they're already cheating and getting away with it.
What happens when the far right decides to play that game.
They'll be arrested.
The states should be allowed to vote in any manner they see fit, however, if they continue to conduct federal elections they must be held to new federal standards.
If these standards were applied at the federal level, the states would be pressured to adopt high standards as well.
All you need is voter ID card with encryption and traceability for citizens only. Oh, you can't vote unless you pay taxes or own land.
I don't know if owning land should be a criteria, but there may be value in a requirement to pay net positive taxes to vote.
Low/zero tax contributors who soak up significant state benefits, like welfare, free healthcare, and subsidized housing, would not get a say in how our money is spent.
Most government workers would not a get a vote nor should they. The taxpayers handed out a $50k salary for you to do next to nothing, and you only paid a few thousand in taxes? That's a net loss for us. No vote.
It would be a very hard sell at this point, but there's some value there for sure.
100%, if you work for government, you cannot vote in the elections. That is a great callout. It really should be own land and or pay taxes at a certain level.
I work for my local county government. I would lose my vote under this scheme, and I've been a big supporter of it for years. (When I started I vowed that I would go back to the real world if I ever failed to save the taxpayers who pay my salary less than my salary.)
I would extend it out - have every recipient of public money calculate the fraction of their budget comes from taxpayers and score that percentage of public money against their employees, vendors and contractors when making the net payer/recipient calculation.
Actually, since we live in the age of computers, we could calculate these percentages out to infinity (with 1 year lag). At the end of the year, every grant and transfer would get tagged with the originator's prior year percentage, which would then propogate to their recipients.
Why is owning land a requirement? Anyone can do that.
China could buy parcels for a million citizens and outvote anyone in half our States.
My problem with ID is the Mark of the Beast which is forthcoming. It will be used to find common ground for those seeking Voter ID and the exclusive port of entry to all financial transaction. The ability to buy or sell.
And the Beast is attractive initially. We have been warned ahead of time, but most will fall in line without any thought whatsoever.
Revelation 14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.”
We should absolutely hold a newspaper in one hand and a Bible in the other looking for signs like the mark of the beast.
The reality is almost everyone is already required to carry various forms of ID. Drivers license, State-issued IDs, passports. You have to have these IDs to function at all in our society. Voter ID is not a big stretch.
You make an excellent point about this ID being abused and manipulated to control our financial transactions and other things not related to voting, but it seems like the other forms of ID we already have could be abused in this way as well. A store can always demand a Drivers License or State ID when you try to use a credit card, for example.
Good job Minnesomalia.
Believe it or not, Minnesota is not overrun with Somalians, and they do not control the political and cultural landscape of the state.
No, Minnesota is a leftist dystopia thanks to militant leftist universities, socialist Swedish heritage, one of the most criminal and welfare dependent black populations in America - almost no affluent blacks in the state - and rural communities that still somehow vote democrat thanks to decades of DFL propaganda. The state is cucked from top to bottom before you even count the Somalians. And remember who imported them in the first place: Minnesota Lutheran churches.
I have lived in Minnesota my whole life and sadly I cannot rebuff a single thing you’ve said. The rural communities of the Iron Range are the worst. Time after time they vote for the party trying to shut down all mining. It’s bonkers.
George Floyd state is stupid as fuck
I don't know why but Minnesota sure is in a hurry to be the faggiest state ever
Because in the last election the democrats took over all of government and they are trying to get as much crazy passed into law before the voters have a chance to change their mind. RCV will make sure that they never lose power again
What a scam . Minnesota has gone full commie.
They'll fit right into our national election
The Democrats gained total control after the last election and are shoving through all of their hairbrained ideas.
They're pushing it really hard through ads and social media posts, but every comment is a resounding "no fucking way".
I guess it depends on the Twin Cities though.
That’s what sucks. Just like state like Oregon you have a metro area that gets to decide things for the whole state. The Twin Cities will do whatever the Democrats say and they have enough population to shove it down everyone else’s throats.
Execute the traitors.
Some people voted for someone
That idea floating around of seceding parts of southern MN to South Dakota doesn't sound too bad right now...
I give up on Minnesota. I love the state but unfortunately the unions have such a strong hold and the cheating is so bad it's time to leave. The entire state is run buy 2 counties. I'm off to Florida and Alabama tomorrow look at properties.
Its really beginning to seem to be the only option.
Can we save some reservations for the wood chipper for the “bipartisan” election thieves???
Ranked choice is what they used to turn Alaska blue to save Collins.
Alaska will probably always be blue now.
Minnesota gave Democrats full control in the last election and they are milking it for all it is worth. The most extreme abortion laws, gun laws, and now some RCV to make sure they never lose power again.
Could a kind pede kindly explain what Ranked choice means? I have a inkling, but much of the information i find keep telling me that it is a good thing... Which probably means that I am being lied to.
It effectively removes party from elections. Each voter has to "opportunity" to vote/rank the candidates on their ballot. If there is not clear winner, the lower candidate is tossed out and the ranked votes are retabulated. This allows dark horse or fake candidates to split the initial vote and allow a whole lot of figgerin' (cheating) to happen to determine a winner.
That is much worse than i expected.
Thanks for the explanation!
If it is incredibly easy to cheat...why don't we play the game...soon as GOP starts cheating they will get rid of it....or keep complaining and losing.
That’s like deciding to cheat at Monopoly when your opponent has all the property. How can Republicans cheat when the whole vote counting system from top to bottom is run by Democrats?
There is a will there is a way...until we paly the game they will keep winning.
Unlike Alaska, at least Minnesota is deep blue.
I was born and raised in the beautiful state of Minnesota. I left the city many years ago and am disgusted with what has become of it. Our government can’t wait to spend our tax dollars on every WOKE cause imaginable. We were at the whims of our governor Tim Walz for far too long when Covid was a thing. Oh yeah and they cheated him back in again along with others…..
Here we go again, they’re starting the cheating BEFORE the elections even begin.
Minnesota- Forever blue now
Can we use it to our advantage?
Have we seen RCV work for a Republican anywhere?
One of the prime ideas here is running fake candidates to split the vote. See the word fake. It's essentially cheating and most conservatives at least feign to avoid any sign of this.
make sure you understand how the system works. In ranked choice, you choose multiple candidates and rank them based on your preference. Know. The. Candidates.
Ranked choice is a hail mary that only works for your side if the other side doesn't understand how it works, so make sure you and your friends/family members know how to turn it against the scumbag politicians.
I still don’t understand how it works or how it’s manipulated. Can you give me a quick example?
say it's trump, destantis, rand paul, joe biden, kamala harris, pete buttgieg (sp?), and whoever the Libertarians and the greens put up, but also a handful of independents
I might pick
Trump as my first choice
Rand Paul as my second
The Libertarian Candidate as my third choice
and Desantis as my last
beyond that, it varies from system to system, but the way it's rigged is that the party implementing it makes a point of educating their voters on how it works and what to do, and then their opponents often fail to dig into the system and understand how it works, so their voters, unfamiliar with the new system, often only put one name down, so if their first choice is eliminated, their vote becomes superfluous.
R, D, D, fake R, fake R are running.
Voter chooses R, fake R, fake R, D, D Nobody gets fiddy % so lowest (fake) is thrown out. and votes are retabbed. His lowest D votes go to the D candidate, just like that! A Republican voter has voted for a D.
Sorta. Hope you get the idea that this smells bigly.
Instead of voting for one candidate, you vote for every candidate, but in a specific order.
It could be a great system if voters are well-informed. It lets you vote third party without wasting your vote.
Is Minnesota still in the United States?..peaceful divorce, let them live in the box, eat ze bugs and surrender all their rights.
Minnesota is too cold. The real men in MN have lost their balls because they froze off.
Minnesota is actually a muslim run state. Fucking Ellis.
People are fuckung retarded. It's sad.
Cheaters going to find news ways to cheat
It is so awful. We are trying to get rid of it in Alaska.
Globalists have already won.
Slowly but surely, the Democrat cancer machine is chewing at our country
Minnesota has been lost for a long time
