Joe Biden Sows the Seeds of Chaos – Americans Must Take Alarm Over Our Abrogated Freedom & Liberty

The preservation of a free Government requires not merely, that the metes and bounds which separate each department of power be invariably maintained; but more especially that neither of them be suffered to overleap the great Barrier which defends the rights of the people. The Rulers who are guilty of such an encroachment, exceed the commission from which they derive their authority, and are Tyrants. The People who submit to it are governed by laws made neither by themselves nor by an authority derived from them, and are slaves. …. it is proper to take alarm at the first experiment on our liberties. We hold this prudent jealousy to be the first duty of Citizens, and one of the noblest characteristics of the late Revolution. The free men of America did not wait till usurped power had strengthened itself by exercise, and entangled the question in precedents. They saw all the consequences in the principle, and they avoided the consequences by denying the principle. We revere this lesson too much to forget it.”   ~ James Madison, Fourth President of the United States, June 20, 1785 [Blog Editor: I found the quote if you choose to read in entirety – James Madison’s Memorial and Remonstrance; Foundation For Moral Law]

 

Joe Biden gave an incredibly disingenuous, reprehensible and disgusting performance during his March 25, 2021 press conference, as he spoke of the need for the American people to reject the rising global trend towards autocracy, in favor of democracy, and yet, with nearly seventy executive orders already under his belt, he has proven himself to have visions of complete authority and total power himself. And while he may reject a total autocracy, he certainly does fully embrace mob rule, just so long as it’s his mob of Democratic Party Communists doing the ruling, as he noted a willingness to end the filibuster in order to seize total power for his Marxist followers, through H.R. 1 and a host of other anti-American, anti-Liberty pieces of illegal “legislation”, that are nothing less than dictatorial diktats.

 

Biden told the press members:

 

Your children or grandchildren are going to be doing their doctoral thesis on who succeeded, autocracy or democracy, because that is what is at stake. We have got to prove democracy works.”

 

Well folks, our democratic republic and bicameral government does work, just as long as at least one of the branches of government is in the control of the opposition party. However, when all branches of government are in the hands of the majority party, the beast that arises is an ugly pure democracy whereby the minority’s voice is completely ignored and neutralized and any real power to effect changes or pass moral legislation is ripped away from their grasp. And this is what we now witness in this Communist controlled administration that is moving with a dangerous speed and purpose to completely alter our way of life and our entire system.

 

Not only is the Biden administration seeking full control of elections under federal authority, in an open attempt to hold power forever and end states’ rights forever, but he actually believes he has the right and authority to suppress or abrogate an Inalienable God-Given Right, namely our right to keep and bear arms, and any other illegal act, such as unilaterally ending the Keystone Pipeline and even his cessation of the building of the border wall on his own “authority”, through Executive Order, and paving the way to open the flood-gates to an overwhelming number of illegal aliens who are showing up wearing “Biden — Let Us In” shirts and prepared to vote for Democratic Party candidates for many years ahead.

 

Biden may say “democracy”, but what he really means is manipulating and changing “the law” in order to turn the U.S. Treasury into the Public Feeding Trough and avoiding any limitation on the power of his administration and its Democratic Party Communist associates, as he and others revive and reinforce a new American slavery.  

 

There’s nothing remotely close to democracy in Biden’s manner of governing. In logical, cogent-thinking circles, his acts are seen for what they are — the acts of a dictator. 

 

During the March 25th press conference, Biden suggested that the filibuster has been “abused in a gigantic way” over the past year. Although he supposedly is fine with any debate running on for however long it takes, he also essentially noted a willingness to end the filibuster and bipartisan cooperation, in order to utilize a 51 majority vote, rather than the usual 60 votes, to pass major pieces of legislation that are outside government financial concerns and the use of reconciliation bills, like HR 51 that seeks to make D.C. the 51st state to be followed by Puerto Rico.

 

The addition of D.C. and Puerto Rico as states would create four new Senate seats that would most assuredly vote with the Democratic Party Communist Caucus. American hating traitors would then be free to pack the Supreme Court and seize control of our federal government in perpetuity.

 

Biden noted:

 

We are ready to get a lot done. And if we have to, if there is complete lockdown and chaos as a result of the filibuster, then we will have to go beyond what I am talking about.”

 

The only one sowing the seeds of chaos are Biden and his Democratic Party Communist minions.

 

And in this context, even more troubling was Biden’s reference to a Fourth Industrial Revolution taking shape and the actions that it will necessitate from government. Every capable man, woman and adolescent must understand what this holds for their future and develop an effective strategy for a future, as a tremendous power shift is underway, that is abrogating and eradicating the power of the people and our Bill of Rights, in favor of a people and a nation controlled by an autocratic ruler working hand-in-hand with Big Banks, Big Pharma, Big Tech, Big Agriculture, global corporations and unelected global influencers and bureaucrats, such as Bill Gates, of the Gates Foundation, and Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum.  

 

I never liked the idea behind the COVID “Vaccine” under Trump’s Warp Speed Project and I like what is transpiring under Biden’s agenda driven implementation of his own COVID “Vaccine” plan, even less. On March 25th, Biden bragged of achieving a hundred million vaccinations delivered within 58 days of his taking office, and he suggested his administration would achieve 200 million in the first one hundred days, acknowledging the ambitious nature of this goal. And all of this ties directly to previous statements Biden has made that the complete reopening of America, even our ability to celebrate the Fourth of July, hinge on the American people’s willingness to obey his too often illegal diktats, as he locks arms with the likes of Bill Gates and Dr. Anthony Fauci, who are on the record saying that America cannot go back to normal, until seventy to eighty percent of Her population receive the dangerous, gene altering medical treatment, that is absolutely not a true vaccine, in any sense of the word.

 

And in the meantime, Bill Gates has acquired 242,000 acres of land in the United States, through Gates’ company, Cascade Investment LLC. As a curious and angering side note, Gates has massive holdings in the Canadian National Railway Company that stands to profit significantly from the canceling of the Keystone Pipeline, as it negotiates to transport an increased tonnage in oil transfers.

 

One should note that Klaus Schwab, executive chairman of the World Economic Forum, is also the author of ‘The Fourth Industrial Revolution‘ and one of the key advocates, along with many others, for a massive global reset — The Great Reset — and a “new normal” by 2030, that basically has all the world’s people beholden to the State for all their needs, a world in which the one percent owns everything and the rest of us are to own nothing, rent everything and be “happy” just to be alive, even as every last right is suppressed and obliterated and we are reduced to serfs in a new age of tyranny as a thousand years of darkness gets underway.

 

And, just as we saw the banks and “elite” benefit from the Great Depression and Big Business and Corporations, deemed “too big to fail”, and the Big Banks got more wealthy during the 2008 Economic Collapse and the 2020 Economic Collapse, they are now situating themselves, with the help of Biden and other corrupt, criminal cronies to take it all, every last dollar, ever last resource and every bit of wealth in existence, through COVID policies that are still in place and a Great Reset that is nothing less than the same tired Communist plan to bring all the world under one massive global hegemony, a new world order.

 

From the earliest days of America to the present an extremely large part of all our troubles have been caused by the relationship between our government and big banks, and an historic ongoing battle has been fought between Big Banks and true American Patriots. Our Founders understood the threat banks posed to America’s existence, and if we fail to pay heed, we do so to our own peril.

 

Thomas Jefferson, the third President of the United States, issued a warning to America to beware the power of the banks, as he stated:

 

I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [these banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered … The issuing power of currency shall be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.” [Blog Editor: It is interesting that the primary holder of Jefferson documents (Monticello.org) lists this quote as spurious BUT only because the direct wording cannot be found in documents yet admits the quote is a paraphrase of Jefferson’s sentiment. A quote location used as accurate: Founding Fathers Quotes. The Online Library of Liberty (Liberty Fund) has a Jefferson quote intimating his antipathy toward American banking.]

 

Everything we are witnessing today, from the massive “Stimulus spending” Marxist/ Keynesian bribes aimed at ushering in the final phase of authoritarian socialism to the COVID Hoax that gave cover to a Federal Reserve Bank policy that was collapsing the economy in September 2019, long before the emergence of the “COVID Virus”, and even the COVID crisis dictatorial policies could not have been possible without a 1910 secret meeting on Jekyll Island, that laid the foundations for the Federal Reserve System.

 

After signing the Federal Reserve Act in 1923, which legitimized and legalized the control of U.S. currency by a conglomerate of the nation’s largest PRIVATE BANKS, President Woodrow Wilson would later note:

 

I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world — no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.” [Blog Editor: This is another disputed quote. InspiringQuotes.us has the complete quote. Bill Muckler at The Liberty Beacon writes a post not doubting the authenticity of the quote. Kenneth Ballard (who calls himself a Libertarian calling for an innocent until proven guilty mentality for kill-the-elderly Cuomo) writing at Observations demonstrates a belief the Wilson quote is an amalgamation of Wilson writings that existed before he signed the Federal Reserve into existence ergo out of context.]

 

The question of the day seems unfathomable, as one wonders over the American people’s ready abandonment of their freedom and liberty, individual liberty, that was so hard fought and so hard won with terrible losses borne by American patriots of yesteryear. It’s as if they seek to run back into a feudal system under a new monarchy in the guise of a Super-Nanny State, no matter the evil consequences that will surely follow.

 

Under the guise of democracy, Joe Biden and his administration are not even pretending to stay within the confines of the Constitution, as they act as though they are to be the judge of their own power, while they also insinuate themselves deeper into every issue for their own motives, not to right a wrong. They arrogantly claim the non-existent authority to insert regulate all behavior, to tax at will and to insert themselves into every issue of the day and all aspects of our personal lives, even to the point of telling us how we must view sex and gender and speak to others in any number of settings, and, for the most part, everything they have accomplished and are currently attempting is out-and-out Unconstitutional and some of the most egregious overreaches of the federal government ever witnessed in American history.

 

Liberty and Democracy are two antithetical ideas, especially when democracy is used to enrich one segment of a population, at the expense and to the detriment of another segment of that population, through the violation of the rights of those whose property is being taken without their permission and consent. And whether through edict and executive order or legislation, the Biden administration has absolutely no moral authority tell any Freedom and Liberty-loving American what they can think, say and publish, who they can associate with, what they can do with their property, when they can travel and when they can worship; even more so, they certainly have no moral authority to dismiss, discard and abrogate our Inalienable God-Given Rights.

 

The Founders never placed any “emergency powers” within the Constitution, to deny and violate our basic civil liberties, and they would never have done such anyway. They never would have even entertained so vile a thing, that would be the tool in later years to violate our natural and Inalienable God-Given Rights and take our Lives, Liberty and Property. By and large, most of what we see unfolding today, whether it’s mask mandates, gun control, tax hikes, or climate change and open border measures, is being done without the consent of the largest segment of the American population.

 

Our ancestors only voluntarily relinquished the barest minimum of their Individual Liberty under the Original Constitution and only for the federal government to conduct its business as specifically authorized in the plain text of the Constitution. Whatever personal Liberty was voluntarily restrained, it was done so purely as a trade for government protection of our natural and Inalienable God-Given Rights.

 

Our ancestors did not die on the battlefields at Lexington, Concord, Saratoga and Valley Forge to see any government negate Freedom and Liberty in America, no matter the “emergency” or health crisis.

 

Personal Liberty and Freedom is an individual birth right, and one should be repulsed by the readiness that so many ordinary Democratic Party supporters show to relinquish their own Liberty, but it is their choice. However, while they may choose to surrender their own Inalienable God-Given Rights and Liberty, they have no right to surrender mine, nor does the Biden administration have any right or authority to violate and trample on those same rights, in his quest to force a Devil’s bargain with Communism on all America, and he will soon find out the error of his ways, the hard way and down a bloody path, as his administration comes face to face with Americans who truly hold dear the principles behind the words, “Give me liberty or give me death“.

March 5, 2019

 

If you haven’t heard already, you will probably a lot of promotion of Rep. (Speaker) Pelosi’s HR 1 named with typical Leftist deception, “For the People Act of 2019”. There is nothing for the people in this voting revamp-Bill. There is a load of destroy the American election process which among other things threatens 10th Amendment States’ Rights.

 

Thanks to the Heritage Foundation, here is some must read information to counter the lying propaganda the Dems will be pitching  for support.

 

I am cross posting the Heritage Foundation email alert and a couple links within that email.

House Democrats’ #1 priority this week is to weaken our election process for decades…

 

From Janae Stracke, Grassroots Director

The House will vote this week on H.R. 1, the Democrat-backed “For the People Act.” This deceptively-titled bill would strip the American people and state governments’ of their power to oversee their own elections and hand it over to the federal government.

 

Democrats want to rig the election process in their favor without anyone noticing, and federalizing election oversight provides them the perfect cover to do so.

 

H.R. 1 mandates changes that make it near impossible to ensure the integrity of our elections. Specifically the bill would:

 

  • Mandate same-day voter registration

 

  • Automatically add illegal aliens to voter registration rolls

 

  • Abolish state voter ID laws

 

  • Allow voters to vote outside their precinct

 

  • Give one party majority control of the Federal Elections Commission

 

>>> Click here for more information on this corrupt bill.

 

Nancy Pelosi is using her new power in the House Democrat majority to weaken our election system for generations. She must be stopped.

 

In order to shine a big spotlight on the issue, we are taking to Twitter this Wednesday—and we need your help.

 

Please join grassroots activists nationwide on Twitter to expose this election fraud bill. We need to send the message that the “For the People Act” is #NOTforthePeople.

 

Join our #TweetFest on Wednesday, March 6 from 11 am – 2 pm ET to engage with our representatives with tweets urging them to vote against this anti-democratic bill.

 

 

Check out our latest issue brief here to get smart on the issue. Let’s take over Twitter and show the liberals in Congress that America still stands for the First Amendment and is against their #NOTforthePeopleAct. Together, we can bolster the conservative coalition and make sure there are no conservative votes for Nancy Pelosi’s election fraud bill.

 

Talk to you soon,

The Facts About H.R. 1—the For the People Act of 2019

 

February 1, 2019

The Heritage Foundation

 

SUMMARY

H.R. 1 federalizes and micromanages the election process administered by the states, imposing unnecessary, unwise, and unconstitutional mandates on the states and reversing the decentralization of the American election process—which is necessary for protecting our liberty and freedom. The bill interferes with the ability of states and their citizens to determine qualifications for voters, to ensure the accuracy of voter registration rolls, to secure the integrity of elections, to participate in the political process, and to determine the district boundary lines for electing their representatives.

The Issue

 

H.R. 1 federalizes and micromanages the election process administered by the states, imposing unnecessary, unwise, and unconstitutional mandates on the states and reversing the decentralization of the American election process—which is necessary for protecting our liberty and freedom.

 

The bill interferes with the ability of states and their citizens to determine qualifications for voters, to ensure the accuracy of voter registration rolls, to secure the integrity of elections, to participate in the political process, and to determine the district boundary lines for electing their representatives.

 

What H.R. 1 Would Do:

 

  • Seize the authority of statesto regulate voter registration and the voting process by forcing states to implement early voting, automatic voter registration, same-day registration, online voter registration, and no-fault absentee balloting.

 

  • Make it easier to commit fraudand promotes chaos at the polls through same-day registration, as election officials have no time to verify the accuracy of voter registration information and cannot anticipate the number of voters, ballots, and precinct workers that will be needed.

 

  • Hurt voter turnout through early voting by diffusing the intensity of get-out-the-vote efforts; it raises the cost of campaigns. Voters who vote early don’t have the same information as those who vote on Election Day, missing late-breaking developments that could affect their choices.

 

  • Degrade the accuracy of registration lists by automatically registering individuals from state databases, such as DMV and welfare offices, by registering large numbers of ineligible voters, including aliens as well as multiple or duplicate registrations of the same individuals.

 

  • Constitute a recipe for massive voter registration fraud by hackers and cyber criminals through online voter registrationnot tied to an existing state record, such as a driver’s license.

 

  • Require states to count ballots cast by voters outside of their assigned precinct, 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. Mandates no-fault absentee ballots, whichare the tool of choice for vote thieves.

 

  • Prevent election officials from checking the eligibility and qualifications of voters and remove ineligible voters. This includes restrictions on using the U.S. Postal Service’s national change-of-address system to verify the address of registered voters; participating in state programs that compare voter registration lists to detect individuals registered in multiple states; or everremoving registrants due to a failure to vote no matter how much time has gone by.

 

  • Cripple the effectiveness of state voter ID lawsby allowing individuals to vote without an ID and merely signing a statement in which they claim they are who they say they are.

 

  • Violate the First Amendment and could cover a vast range of legal activity. Voter intimidation or coercion that prevents someone from registering or voting is already a federal crime under the Voting Rights Act and the National Voter Registration Act. But H.R. 1 adds an additional provision to prevent interference with registering or voting that is so vague that it could easily interfere with free speech and other lawful activity.

 

  • Expand regulation and government censorship of campaigns and political activity and speech,including online and policy-related speech. H.R. 1 imposes onerous legal and administrative compliance burdens and costs on candidates, citizens, civic groups, unions, corporations, and nonprofit organizations. Many of these provisions violate the First Amendment, protect incumbents, and reduce the accountability of politicians to the public.

 

  • Reduce the number of Federal Election Commission membersfrom six to five, allowing the political party with three commission seats to control the commission and engage in partisan enforcement activities.
  • Prohibit state election officials from participating in federal elections and impose numerous other “ethics” rules that are unconstitutional or unfairly restrict political activity.

 

  • Require states to restore the ability of felons to vote the moment they are out of prison. Section 2 of the 14th Amendment gives states the constitutional authority to decide when felons who committed crimes against their fellow citizens may vote again. Congress cannot override a constitutional amendment with a statute.

 

  • Transfer the right to draw congressional districts from state legislatures to “independent” commissions whose members are unaccountable to voters. H.R. 1 makes it a violation of federal law to engage in “partisan” redistricting and mandates inclusion of alien population, both legal and illegal, in all redistricting. This is an anti-democratic, unconstitutional measure that takes away the ability of the citizens of a state to make their own decision about redistricting.

 

  • Violate separation of powers and directly interfere with the President’s constitutional duties. H.R. 1 bans his political appointees, such as the Attorney General, from participating in, directing the defense of, or assisting in any matter (including lawsuits against a President’s policies, programs, executive orders, or his enforcement of the law) in which the President is named as a party.

Background Information

 

Heritage Action for America

 

H.R. 1 is Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s signature piece of legislation for the 116th Congress. Deceptively titled “For the People Act,” its primary goal is to rig the election system in favor of Democratic politicians by undermining America’s electoral process.

 

Under H.R. 1, massive amounts of elections-related power would be transferred from the states to the federal government. The bill interferes with the ability of states and their citizens to determine qualifications for voters, to ensure the accuracy of voter registration rolls, to secure the integrity of elections, to participate in the political process, and to determine the district boundary lines for electing their representatives.

 

The end goal of H.R. 1 is clear—to enshrine into law dubious electoral practices that enable and encourage fraudulent behavior, such as ballot harvestingfalse voter registrationsduplicate voting, and ineligible voting.

 

Heritage scholar and election expert Hans Von Spakovsky summarized the problems with H.R. 1 as such, “Sometimes legislation proposed by Congress is bad policy; sometimes it is unnecessary; and sometimes it is unconstitutional. H.R. 1 is all three.”

 

At 600+ pages long, H.R. 1 contains many provisions that are unhelpful, unnecessary, and unconstitutional. Below are just a few of the terrible policies contained within of H.R. 1:

 

Sabotages state voter ID laws—When arriving at the polls, voters will not be required to show ID and can simply sign a statement in which they claim to be who they say they are. This undermines many states’ voter ID laws, which were enacted to combat impersonation fraud, voter registration fraud, duplicate voting, and voting by ineligible individuals, such as illegal aliens.

 

Mandates same-day registration—States will be required to immediately register a person to vote upon request, even on the day of an election. With no buffer-period to verify personal information, this provision could easily lead to voter fraud.

 

Automatically registers ineligible voters—States will be required to automatically add to voter registration rolls every person, regardless of voter eligibility, who partakes in certain government programs, such as receiving welfare or obtaining a driver’s license. Other provisions of H.R. 1 then restrict the ability of states to verify eligible voters and the removal of ineligible voters from voter registration rolls. This provision will automatically enroll ineligible voters such as illegal aliens.

 

Unconstitutionally requires states to restore the ability of felons to vote—Upon release from prison, every felon would immediately be restored the ability to vote. The 14th Amendment to the Constitution allows states to restrict voting rights to those who have participated in “rebellion, or other crime.” States have the constitutional authority to decide when or if to restore that right, as long as they do so in a manner that is not racially discriminatory. H.R. 1 would attempt to unconstitutionally overrule the 14th Amendment with a statute.

 

Violates the First Amendment—H.R.1 deters political free speech by inserting a provision that makes it a criminal offense to provide “materially false” information that will “impede or prevent” someone from registering or voting. This provision is so vague that it would likely interfere with free speech and other legitimate activities.

 

Requires ballots be counted outside of the voter’s precinct—This removes the integrity of the local government to verify voter rolls and oversee elections and gives the power to count votes entirely to the federal government.

 

Creates unaccountable redistricting committees—Currently, congressional district lines are drawn by state governments which are accountable to their constituents. Allowing unelected officials to determine congressional districts is a nakedly political ploy to draw more Democratic districts.

 

Alters Federal Election Commission into a partisan organization—Currently the FEC has six members (three from each party), preserving its bipartisan nature. H.R. 1 would reduce the number to five, giving one party a majority and the opportunity to weaponize the FEC for their party’s benefit.

 

Key Talking Points

 

  • Helps Liberals in Elections—R. 1 is designed to fund, elect, and maintain liberals in Congress, it even allows for using taxpayer dollars to fund candidates.

 

  • Federalization of the Election Process—R. 1 allows for overreaching federal authority of election processes by imposing unnecessary and unconstitutional mandates on states.

 

  • Removal of Redistricting Power—Under this bill, the power to draw congressional districts would be given to an unelected third-party.

 

  • Automatic Registration of Ineligible Voters—R. 1 interferes with states’ abilities to determine qualifications for voters and destroys the accuracy of voter registration rolls.

 

  • No Accountability for Vote Counting—Destroys the sanctity of the election process and endangers our democracy by requiring ballots be counted outside the county’s precinct.

 

  • Felon Voter Registration—Upon release from prison, felons are automatically allowed to register as voters.

 

  • Unchecked Voter Identification—States will be required to register voters on the day of elections and instead of requiring voters to bring ID to the polls H.R. 1 allows for people to simply “sign a statement” confirming identification. With no buffer-period to verify personal information, this provision could easily lead to voter fraud.

 

Call Notes

 

Hello,

 

My name is [NAME] from [CITY AND ZIP CODE] and I am calling today to urge [MEMBER OF CONGRESS] to vote against H.R. 1.

 

This bill strips states’ rights to regulate their individual election processes and undermines the integrity of our election process. This micromanaging attempt at federalizing the election process destroys the sanctity of the election process and endangers our democracy. As with most programs, voting is best regulated at levels closest to the people.

 

Four of the most troubling provisions of H.R. 1 are:

 

  • Requires states to restore the ability of felons to vote

 

  • Jeopardizes First Amendment rights

 

  • Federalizes congressional redistricting

 

  • Turns the Federal Election Commission into a partisan organization

 

These requirements will make it harder to detect fraudulent votes and make it easier for illegal immigrants and other ineligible voters to be registered to vote. As a constituent of [MEMBER OF CONGRESS], I am asking that they stand for election integrity and vote against H.R. 1.

 

Thank you for your time.

Sample Letter to the Editor

 

Below is a sample letter to the editor. We encourage you to adapt and personalize the letter below. Heritage Action Regional Coordinators are always here to help edit your letter and get it published.

 

Public confidence and trust in the validity of election results is key to increasing voter participation. Americans deserve a fair and accurate election process. This means not only making sure that every eligible individual is able to vote, but that his or her vote is not stolen or diluted through fraud. The Democrats “For the People Act” (H.R. 1) unfortunately would both enable and increase fraud.

 

H.R. 1 would sabotage state voter ID laws, which currently combat impersonation and voter registration fraud, duplicate voting, and voting by ineligible individuals like illegal aliens. Under H.R. 1, someone could simply sign a statement in which they claim to be who they say there are. This would be on top of allowing same-day voter registration. The combination of these two policies that H.R. 1 outlines would open the door for massive fraud.

 

The bill would also require automatically registering individuals to vote who partake in government programs such as receiving welfare or obtaining a driver’s license. This would automatically enroll ineligible voters such as illegal aliens who take advantage of government programs. In addition, it limits states ability to verify eligible voters and remove ineligible voters from registration rolls.

 

In addition to these dangerous policies, it would turn the Federal Election Commission into a hyper-partisan body. Currently the FEC is bipartisan, with six members (three from each party). H.R. 1 would reduce the number to five, giving one political party a majority and the opportunity to essentially rig elections in their party’s favor.

 

Sometimes legislation proposed by Congress is bad policy, sometimes it is unnecessary, and sometimes it is unconstitutional. “For The People Act” includes policies that are all three, and I am urging [insert Representative’s Name] to reject this bill.

Our Capitol Hill lobbying team works directly with lawmakers and their staffs to implement conservative solutions—solutions drawn from our partners at The Heritage Foundation. While other lobbyists push for a special interest agenda, we lobby on behalf of American principles. And our groundbreaking legislative Scorecard grades lawmakers on the votes and bill co-sponsorships that are most critical to advancing the conservative mission over both the short and long term.

 

Influential Grassroots Network

 

Meanwhile, our team of grassroots coordinators organizes an elite group of almost 20,000 Sentinel activists who are on the front lines of the conservative fight. Leveraging personal relationships with lawmakers and tools like letters to the editors and calls to Congress, they apply essential political pressure that holds their representatives accountable to our nation’s founding principles.

 

Since our founding in 2010, Heritage Action has both thwarted the liberal agenda and advanced conservative principles. We have kept up momentum for Obamacare repeal even when the Establishment has declared it not worth fighting. We have led the fight for both spending cuts and tax cuts, and our bold stance against confirming any of Barack Obama’s judicial nominees in 2016 paved the way for Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation to the Supreme Court in 2017.
