It is safe to say that the successful theft of the 2020 presidential election by the Democrats has greatly emboldened them. It took an amazing amount of effort by state and local Democrat officials, both elected and those that volunteered. The Democrats in the House of Representatives are now attempting to codify all of the dirty tricks they used into a rather odorous piece of legislation they refer to as “For the People Act.” If it passes Republicans will find it extremely difficult to win future federal elections.
The For the People Act is described in great detail in this National Review article. Here is their analysis of the bill:
H.R. 1 would federalize and micromanage 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 essential to the protection of our liberty and freedom..
It is important to keep in mind the Democrat Party is now controlled by the most radical leftists who want to dominate all aspects of the lives of every American.
For the remaining portion of this article I will copy provisions from the National Review and add my own analysis. All emphasis was added by the author of the original article.
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. The bill would interfere with the ability of states and their citizens to determine the qualifications and eligibility of voters, to ensure the accuracy of voter registration rolls, to secure the fairness and integrity of elections, to participate and speak freely in the political process, and to determine the district boundary lines for electing their representatives.
Just about the entire bill is unconstitutional. The States are granted the authority under the Constitution to set the time, place, and details of state and federal elections. The federal government is granted a supervisory role only, leaving the states to actually manage the elections.
Seize the authority of states to 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.
All of these provisions have been used extensively in blue states to make sure the Democrat party will continue to hold power even if the population of the state changes to Republican.
Make it easier to commit fraud and promote chaos at the polls through same-day registration, as election officials would have no time to verify the accuracy of voter registration information and the eligibility of an individual to vote and could not anticipate the number of ballots and precinct workers that would be needed at specific polling locations.
It is so obvious that these provisions will make election fraud by Democrats so much more easy. It would not be possible to verify any of the same day registrations. Individuals could travel from polling location to location and those ineligible to vote in elections would do so easily.
I was going to add analysis after each section explaining why each would make future theft of elections easier but there is no need. I changed my mind because it is so obvious to anyone.
Degrade the accuracy of registration lists by requiring states to automatically register all individuals (as opposed to “citizens”) from state and federal databases, such as state Departments of Motor Vehicles, corrections and welfare offices, and federal agencies such as the Social Security Administration, the Department of Labor, the Federal Bureau of Prisons, and the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services of the Department of Health and Human Services. This would register large numbers of ineligible voters, including aliens, and cause multiple or duplicate registrations of the same individuals and put federal agencies in charge of determining a person’s domicile for voting purposes (as well as that individual’s taxing state).
Constitute a recipe for massive voter registration fraud by hackers and cyber criminals through online voter registration that is not tied to an existing state record, such as a driver’s license.
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.
Prevent election officials from checking the eligibility and qualifications of voters and removing 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 ever removing registrants due to a failure to vote no matter how much time has elapsed.
Ban state voter ID laws by forcing states to allow individuals to vote without an ID and merely signing a statement in which they claim they are who they say they are.
Expand regulation and government censorship of campaigns and political activity and speech, including online and policy-related speech. H.R. 1 would impose onerous legal and administrative compliance burdens and costs on candidates, citizens, civic groups, unions, corporations, and nonprofit organizations.
Transfer the right to draw congressional districts from state legislatures to “independent” commissions whose members are unaccountable to voters.
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.
If the Republicans in the Senate cave and do not filibuster this legislation so it does not pass when comes up for a vote, that will be stupidest move they could ever make. I was going to say that even the Republican establishment could not be spineless or dumb enough to not stand up strongly against this abominations, but I am no longer sure. If the Democrats pass this through reconciliation or other dirty tricks it would be another coup, one that would be nearly impossible to reverse.
