Republican leaders now have the tools to do what they’ve wanted to do for years: Set up a North Korean/Chinese/Russian-type dictatorship in the USA.

If lying, cheating and banning Blacks and Hispanics from voting won’t be enough, they still have an ace in the hole. Most swing states are controlled at the local level by Trump loyalists poised to disregard election results and appoint their own stooges to replace those legitimately elected. They are not denying this and in fact are proud of it. They know their rank and file will applaud their actions and they’ll have no price to pay for their illegal and un-American activities.

The destruction of our democracy is imminent — and completely condoned by the Republican Party. Freedom lovers are no longer welcome in that organization.

Ring your liberal socialist alarm bells if you want, but Donald Trump will soon return to his rightful Presidency at the head of his loyal military. They will arrest and eliminate all our political enemies.

Just because we didn’t succeed on January 6th doesn’t mean the patriotic struggle to Make America Great Again is over.

The polls prove that in South Dakota most of your friends and family believe the election was stolen, even if they know better than to tell you.

Where we Go One We Go All.

We are so much more like one another than we are different in our hope for the preservation of democracy in the United States. Our single greatest difference seems to be that one side believes the incessant drivel spewed from those who hold the microphones. I plead with you and all like-minded Americans to earnestly seek the truth before assuming there are grave threats coming from the Right. Conservatives want transparency, integrity and safety for all citizens. Your letter merely plays into the dangerous game being put upon our country.

Abe

If you examine the facts, sir, you would clearly see that your party is bent on pushing the US into the globalist agenda as proposed by the WMF whose motto has become, "You will own nothing and you will be happy."

If that isn't communism, I dont know what is.

Larry Skow

Mr. Painter: You sir are so full of BS your eyes are brown. No one is stopped from voting in USA. Fallow the rules an laws. You can vote. Now then If you wish to blame some one here is where current voting issues started. June 25 2013 lawsuit Shelby Cty vs Holder made it to Supreme Court. Court struck down key parts of 1965 Voter Rights act. Read what Robert/Ginsburg said. In short CONGRESS NEEDED TO REVISE IT BRING IT CURRENT. Thus the mess we are in. 7 YEARS. Nothing! Both parties simply refuse to do what is right for USA. Mr. Painter stop your democrat whine. Start telling the true facts. We are losing the Republic of USA because Biden/Harris refuse to secure the border/Schiff now states he has unlimited rights to spy on American citizens at will. Biden has started what could be rampant inflation. Harris? She has been passed around more then a Bong at frat party. This list could go on an on. Congress of both parties are letting us down! Simply do the RIGHT THING! It is WE THE PEOPLE! NOT WE THE PARTY!

Wow, really Larry. Republicans are destroying democracy???? The only ones setting the U.S. up to be like North Korea/China/Russia are your leaders in the democrat party. Your party elected the radicals of Omar and AOC and are leading the charge of socialism/communism from inside Congress, just read some of the comments of these two individuals, you won't have to look too hard. When is the last time you heard a republican talk about how great socialism is and how we need to change, how the Constitution of this great county is outdated, you do not hear that from republicans, only democrats/socialist. To set your comment straight on voting, republicans want every vote to count and are asking for the simple idea of making sure everyone has an ID to vote, why is that so difficult, the ID can be had for free, so if someone can get a drivers license, apply for welfare, get a credit card, etc. they can surely get a voter ID card, can't they? Why are democrats so afraid of making sure every only votes once, why is that a problem, are they afraid that some of your supporters can't vote twice or three times. In just the last election, thousands of your supporters applied for and received absentee ballots without proof of identification because of the pandemic, submitted those votes and then went in and voted at a polling place, this has been documented and that is why your leaders are so afraid of the audits that are coming in Georgia and other states from the last election, they know this is happening. Why are they fighting so hard, telling so many lies, etc. to just double check on the accuracy of the voting, if there is nothing to be afraid of, then they shouldn't be pushing so hard to stop it. They are also starting to hire hundreds of lawyers in the states in question to try and stop this, why, is there something to be worried about? Freedom lovers Larry, your party is the party of taking freedom from citizens, the list is long on your side of the isle, amazing you even think republicans are taking freedom from people. You say destruction of our democracy is imminent, you are exactly right, but it is coming from within your democratic/socialist party Larry, not the republicans who consistently support the rights of American's and the Constitution, remember the Constitution Larry, maybe it is time that some in your party take another look at it and read what it means and stands for, they are quickly forgetting and I am not too sure they don't care what it stands for any longer, and that is very scary to me and should be to you as well.

Thank you all for proving my point.

Donald Trump will soon return to his rightful Presidency at the head of his loyal military. They will arrest and eliminate all our political enemies.

Just because we didn’t succeed on January 6th doesn’t mean the patriotic struggle to Make America Great Again is over.

As these responses prove, the polls show that in South Dakota most of your friends and family believe the election was stolen, even if they know better than to tell you.

If obeying God’s will isn’t enough for you, Mr. Painter, now that respected journalist, Tucker Carlson, has uncovered the truth will you finally face facts and see the light?

On Tuesday evening Mr. Tucker revealed that the FBI orchestrated the deadly assault on the US Capitol as a false flag conspiracy to make it look like the insurrection was the fault of God’s chosen one, our President, Donald Trump.

Courageous lawmakers like Rep. Matt Gaetz, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene , and Rep. Paul Gosar are calling for heads to roll and for Trump to be put back in office now that it is clear the so-called “insurrection” was a vicious entrapment scheme by the federal government.

JMDrury

Rep Matt Gaetz: Currently being investigated as participation in sex trafficking, had his DADDY make 16 traffic violation and a refusal of breathalyzer & refusal of field sobriety test just .....go away

Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene: Currently believes that SPACE LASERS are at fault for voting machine malfunctions, believes that school shootings are fake and are an evil plot by Dems to promote gun control, also that the 9/11 incident was faked too, she also believes that wearing a mask during this pandemic is the SAME THING has the injustices faced by the jewish community during the Holocaust.

Rep Paul Gosar: between the years of 1998- 2010 he was a DENTIST!!

In 2018 six of Gosar's nine siblings spoke out against their brother and endorsed his Democratic opponent, David Brill, in a series of television campaign ads that drew national and international coverage----- For a republican that holds "family values" and his own family is disowning him says a lot.

In other words, the contemporary Republican Party has standards -- they're just not defensible standards. GOP lawmakers on Capitol Hill are willing to take action against one of their own, but only if one of their own challenges Donald Trump's lies and insists that election results matter.

These are the people you want to be taking advice from??

I’m confused, VoiceforAll. Who is this “Larry”? Certainly not Mr. Skow.

More likely you’re confused. Much of what you've both written DOES seem dementia inspired...

Larry Skow

Voice for all: 1. There are many forms of democracy. USA is REPULICAN DEMOCRACY. Read up on it. Greece couldn't hold their democracy years back either. 2. i challenge any one who believes any one was stopped from voting because of color to bring these people forth. Lets hear/see them. Hundreds of my friends Black/Brown/red vote each election. Have for years. The current mess is congress fault. Supreme court struck down 1965 voting rights act--said it needs up dating. CONGRESS FAILED TO DO SO--FAILED TO ACT SINCE June 25 2013! Both Parties have failed us! WE THE PEOPLE1NOT WE THE PARTY1 People a lot of you need to read up an not just Archie an Jughead comic books. Stop fallowing the Clown Rus manure spreader around. Read both sides of story left/Right. Bring Forth ANY ONE THAT WAS STOPPED FROM VOTING! WHERE ARE THESE PEOPLE? Come on Mr. Painter--back up your claims. Or stop pouring your Whine out.

Larry Skow

Since the lefttards will be screaming foul at my last post. May as well add to their distress. Here is simple economical solution to the homeless issue--which couples into drug problem an solve the immigration issue. 3 issues solved with one decree. We simply take the good immigrants in. For every 1 let in we exchange 5 homeless an throw in 5 attorneys. This way the homeless druggies will be closer to their drugs. Will have English speaking attorney on hand to defend their rights. Since drug market will be down there. We won't be adding to global warming by burning them after the busts. See answer to issues is right in front of us. This program lets good citizens in. Solves homeless an illegal drug issue. Excess Attorneys here will find a home down there--an lessens the pool for politician wannabes. We all win. Terry Painter can get them registered to vote. Clown Rus can shuttle them to place of registration--on his dime. Old Hugh can direct traffic. Wise old Yankton Resident can claim it was his idea--as every wizard of Oz would. What could go wrong?

So many words does Larry spend

To while away his hours.

But all he tells us in the end…

He’s in HIS world not ours.

Larry Skow

Gimme a break. That the best you can do? Cant come up with voter who couldn't vote when challenged to do so. Have you got a solution to the homeless? Taking in any Illegals to support an give a job to.

Gimmy A. Breake

Actually, guessed it wrong. After a read of today’s letter by Mr. Shinkoskey you might suspect that Larry and he share the same lonely, dystopian world.

Misanthropy loves company.

Larry Skow

Gimme a break; Put it to bed. Your sadly out of your league. This all started out correcting Terry about his lies on voting. But since you must be democrat. all this Green Deal is is the democrats pushing new form of slavery. All the solar panels made in China is made with Uighur slave labor as is the polyisilicone made there. Look into cobalt mining. Child labor which is basically slave labor. Lithium is leaving a huge environmental trail of destruction in its wake. Huge amounts of clean water is needed. More often taken from natives of the land. Many other metals as well. History shows the Democrats were the KKK. Didn't create it. But was the face of it for years. Still they just pushing slavery but in other areas of the world. We here in USA have all these materials but we can't compete with slave labor an ultra cheap electricity in China. Made by the way with high sulfur coal. Hillary Clinton was right after all. Russia does have puppet in White House. His name? Joe Biden! Russia laughing all way to bank since Biden lifted Nord stream pipeline sanctions. Millions Us dollars are pouring into Russia. n he shut down ours from Canada. aprox $67 million in taxes a year to S. Dakota would been paid.$67 MILLION a year. Maybe more. High Paying jobs also. But you likely draw welfare check so work means nothing.. How's the inflation treating your paycheck? or Welfare check? Eating into it? Thank Slo Joe. But keep thinking you da man. Pull your head out of your manure hole. Start waking up--different then the WOKE they pushing. Write a letter to editor. put your name on a opinion. Stand by it. Quit hiding behind a moniker. KKK was secret club you know. Hide behind sheets an pillow cases. Start standing for something besides what ever you slither under now.
