A Lawsuit in Georgia Claims that Nearly 200,000 Registered Voters were Improperly Purged

Voter advocacy groups in Georgia filed a lawsuit on Wednesday asking a federal court to compel the state to restore nearly 200,000 names to its voter registration list ahead of the January runoff races for the state’s two Senate seats that will determine the balance of power in Washington.

I recently wrote another post here explaining what I have become convinced is behind the stunning wave of irrationality and virtual insanity of that portion of American society loosely affiliated with Donald Trump, radical conservatism, and de facto white supremacist resurgence.

In a nutshell, I traced the roots of the mass break with reality back to several successive generations of children raised without the traditional message that Life Is Not Fair and that no one is entitled to anything out of daily life in the USA. They have come to their majorities – many of then over 50, by now – with the idea that whatever they believe is true just because they say it is, whether it is based on any sort of facts or logic or simply made up to refute facts that find objectionable or inconvenient. They feel entitled to have America Their Way, and the rest of us be damned. Read more
