“H.R. 1” represents the House of Representatives’ bill with the highest priority…, and it is obvious why.
According to Betsy McCaughey, for The Boston Herald, “Nancy Pelosi’s top priority is to turn America into a one-party nation ruled by Democrats. Her bill HR 1 trashes the U.S. Constitution in an attempt to rig the system and make it virtually impossible to elect a Republican president or Congress again. It’s a power grab.”
The “For the People Act” has nothing to do with “The People,” and everything to do with “the democrats.”
On a side note, why does it seem that everything the democrats are doing lately seems to “trash the U.S. Constitution?’
Have you noticed this?
Didn’t all of these people take an oath to preserve and protect The Constitution?
“The bill eviscerates [“Eviscerates” is a strong word!] state voting laws and forces all the states to conform to a set of rules that includes automatic voter registration. Anyone who goes to a DMV or applies for food stamps, Medicaid or other social services, or attends a public college will be automatically enrolled to vote.”
It’s our right to NOT vote as well, isn’t it?
It’s our right to NOT have someone vote on our behalf without our permission, isn’t it?
Well, isn’t it?
“Noncitizens are obligated to identify themselves and opt out, but there are no criminal penalties if they don’t.”
The fact that in some states, “noncitizens” can get driver’s licenses, food stamps, Medicaid, other social services, or attend a public college, is a whole other issue…, but they should not be allowed to register to vote, and it should not be up to them to “opt out.”
“From California to New York, Democrats are already pushing to allow noncitizens to vote in local elections. They see this as their roadmap to a future permanent majority.”
Maybe “yes,” and maybe “no.”
Just because democrats let them in doesn’t necessarily mean they want to see America devolve into the socialist and totalitarian nightmares they just came from.
“HR 1’s bag of tricks also includes banning state voter ID requirements. Anyone can show up on Election Day to vote, registered or not, and simply sign a statement that they’re a legal voter.”
So, they’re saying voting is less important than:
Sitting at a bar
Renting a car
Getting on an airplane
Adopting a pet
Renting a hotel room
Applying for a fishing license
Buying a cell phone
Visiting a casino
Picking up a prescription
Buying an “M” rated video game
Purchasing nail polish at CVS
Purchasing certain cold medicines
Attending the democrat national convention
Is that what they’re saying?
Yes…, that’s what they’re saying.
“HR 1 is being sold as a reform to make voting easier.”
Well, HR 1 definitely does that!
“In truth, it makes cheating easier.”
And we’ve already seen evidence of that in the 2020 election.
“HR 1 compels states to send out absentee or mail-in ballots universally, favoring Democrats who tend to use this method.”
The republicans may be forced to use this “method” as well in future elections.
I mean, you’ve got to fight fire with fire, right?
We may see a day, in the future, where there are more votes tallied than people living in America!
“It also forces states to count ballots that arrive by mail as late as 10 days after the election. Say goodbye to election night finality.”
“HR 1 also legalizes ballot harvesting, a practice many states are struggling to stop. A political organization pays a worker to walk through housing projects and neighborhoods, knock on doors, offer to help residents fill out the ballots they’ve received in the mail, and then submit the piles of completed ballots. It’s a recipe for fraud.”
“It’s also unconstitutional.”
“The authors of the Constitution worried that Congress would try to seize control of presidential selection using dirty tricks like those in HR 1. That’s why they acted to ‘to take the business as far as possible out of their hands,’ according to Charles Pinckney, a framer from South Carolina.”
“Congress, said Pinckney, ‘had no right to meddle’ in it. The framers provided in Article II, Sec. 1 that only state legislatures would have the power to determine how the president is chosen. No national rules.”
“But Pelosi has no qualms about trashing the Constitution to kneecap her opponents.”
There they go “trashing the Constitution, again.
“HR 1 also asserts Congress has the authority to make the District of Columbia into the 51st state. That would hand Democrats two more Senate seats, breaking the current 50-50 tie. Voter registration in D.C. is 76% Democratic and only 6% Republican.”
The recent election indicates the percentage is much higher than that, with over 92% of the votes going to democrats.
“Pelosi ignores that only a constitutional amendment can change the status or parameters of the district.”
“HR 1 also would expose supporters of conservative causes to disclosure and harassment. In 2013, then-President Barack Obama’s Internal Revenue Service tried to strong-arm tax-exempt tea party organizations into disclosing their donors. Pelosi’s bill would give that thuggish tactic the force of law, requiring organizations to disclose their donors.”
“Pelosi’s democracy-destroying bill will pass in the House, where Democrats have a majority [and have no problem with destroying democracy].”
“President Joe Biden has promised to sign it if it passes the Senate. So much for Biden’s unity pledge.”
And, because Illegitimate Joe just signs what they tell him to.
“Under current Senate rules, 60 votes are needed to enact HR 1. Democrats don’t have them yet. It’s up to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell to protect the 60-vote filibuster rule. He’s called the bill ‘the Democratic Politician Protection Act,’ and deplores it as a naked attempt to change the election rules to benefit one party.”
It’s really cringeworthy when we have to count on Mitch McConnell to do anything.
“The bill is just what you’d expect from Pelosi. But the Senate needs to rise to the occasion and protect honest, competitive elections — the foundation of our freedom.”
The RStreet.org website says,
“H.R. 1 is likely the most consequential piece of election-related legislation in years and mostly in a bad way. Let’s be clear: it should be easier to participate in elections and easier to talk about elections. Anything that does the opposite is a bad idea.”
“As an organization, R Street stands strongly for the cause of political reform, and we will always support good policy. H.R. 1 is not good policy.”
The Heritage Foundation adds, about HR 1, that, “It would implement nationwide the worst changes in election rules that occurred during the 2020 election and go even further in eroding and eliminating basic security protocols that states have in place.”
“It would make it a criminal offense for a state official to reject a voter registration application even when it is rejected ‘under color of law’ [whatever that means] because the official believes the individual is ineligible to vote. It would also require states to allow 16-year-olds and 17-year-olds to register; when combined with a ban on voter ID and restrictions on the ability to challenge the eligibility of a voter, this would effectively ensure that underage individuals could vote with impunity.”
“Require states to count ballots cast by voters outside of their assigned precincts, overriding the precinct system used by almost all states that allows election officials to monitor votes, staff polling places, provide enough ballots, and prevent election fraud.”
“Mandate no-fault absentee ballots, which are the tool of choice for vote thieves. It would ban witness signature or notarization requirements for absentee ballots; force states to accept absentee ballots received up to 10 days after Election Day as long as they are postmarked by Election Day; and require states to allow vote trafficking (vote harvesting) so that any third parties—including campaign staffers and political consultants—can pick up and deliver absentee ballots.”
“H.R. 1 would add a provision criminalizing ‘hindering, interfering, or preventing’ anyone from registering or voting, which is so vague and so broad that it could prevent providing any information to election officials about the ineligibility of an individual, such as an applicant not being a U.S. citizen.”
“Reduce the number of Federal Election Commission members from six to five, allowing the political party with three commission seats to control the commission and engage in partisan enforcement activities.”
“Authorize the Internal Revenue Service to engage in partisan activity. H.R. 1 would permit the IRS to investigate and consider the political and policy positions of nonprofit organizations before granting tax-exempt status, thus enabling IRS officials to target organizations engaging in First Amendment activity with disfavored views.”
“Limit access to federal courts for anyone challenging H.R. 1. The bill would prohibit the filing of any lawsuits challenging the constitutionality of H.R. 1 anywhere except in the District Court for the District of Columbia and would allow the court to order all plaintiffs and intervenors, regardless of their number (such as all 50 states), ‘to file joint papers or to be represented by a single attorney at oral argument,’ severely limiting the legal representation and due process rights of challengers.”
Wow, they have really thought of everything!
We ARE living in America, aren’t we?
These democrats seem hell-bent on dragging us into some kind of Nazi Germany scenario.
And they have the unmitigated nerve to call this the “For The People Act” on top of it all.
There is no question that the democrats are completely un-American and have no shame.
No shame, whatsoever.
I have many blogs out here regarding democrat voting shenanigans you can check out as well.
The following blog links contain some of my suggestions to improve our voting process.
These would be things that should be included in HR 1 if the democrats were really interested in improving the process for “We The People.”
