Watching The Death of the Republic

House Passes Bill Gutting Election Integrity, Free Political Speech

On Wednesday evening, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 1, the “For the People” Act, which federalizes state election law and undermines key safeguards such as voter ID.

The bill passed 220-210, with every Republican voting against it (and two not voting) and every Democrat but one voting for it.

This kind of rank partisanship on an elections bill should worry Americans, and so should the specifics of what the bill does.

H.R. 1 requires states to allow any eligible voter to vote by mail in federal elections, a practice that is inherently less secure than in-person voting. The bill also requires states to allow any eligible voter to use ballot drop-boxes of the kind that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s Center for Technology and Civic Life (CTCL) financed in the 2020 election, likely driving up turnout in blue areas. H.R. 1 also mandates that states accept ballots that arrive in the mail up to 10 days after Election Day, so long as they had been postmarked on or before Election Day, echoing a controversial practice in Pennsylvania in 2020.

The bill creates a nationwide automatic voter registration program, which would likely result in double-registrations and the registration of non-citizens. In fact, H.R. 1 explicitly exempts from prosecution people who are “not eligible to vote in elections for Federal office but [were] automatically registered to vote” (Sec. 1015).

It allows felons who have completed their incarceration to vote.

The sad part of this to me, is the fact that our Republic did have a very good system if we had used it. I tried to inform and educate the R people who were the ‘political’ people in my area. The State Senator was concerned I was somehow going to make others more powerful than him. All these fraud elections in 2020 turned on the very issues I was trying to make people aware of. I left when I realized that no one cared. Period. They were brain dead. But this is the month for newly electing a County Chair and beginning again. Darn it! They all act like nothing has changed and are doing the same thing all over again. They are making certain that no new people are involved, they maintain their power, blah, blah, blah. It hasn’t even occurred to them that the it’s over…gone…we’re communist now because of their school yard bully behavior. How does an American R/D function under communism? As it stands, none of us will vote again for anything because we are in varying stages of being gone too.
