Trump doesn't like it therefore it's wrong and I hate it.


Did you see what President Trump said at CPAC?

He called out H.R. 1, the Democrats’ bill to DESTROY election integrity.


#

Here are just a few of the RADICAL proposals in H.R. 1:

  • RESTRICT political speech protected under the First Amendment
  • Turn the Federal Election Commission into a partisan political weapon
  • ELIMINATE Voter ID requirements nationwide
  • Require states to give ballots to felons
  • Automatically register EVERY welfare recipient to vote
  • Put unelected career bureaucrats in charge of drawing election districts
President Trump is RIGHT. This bill would be a complete disaster for election integrity.

1. How about truth in advertising for Political Ads. Wouldn't that be refreshing?
2. Nothing in the bill turns the FEC into a partisan weapon any worse than it is right now.
3. It doesn't eliminate voter ID requirements. That's up to the States.
4. It doesn't require the states to allow felons to vote. In some states, ex cons can already vote It's up to the state
5. There is no law that states that you have to be a registered voter to be on welfare and there won't be.
6. Carreer Politicians are already in charge of drawing election districts, it's called Gerrymandering.

Add 6 more lies to Rumps already more than 20,000 lies. But I guess we need to start the count all over again since he's a private citizen. What's he up to as a private citizen now? Over 100 in 30 days? He's slipping.

It's taking away states rights

It's taking a lot more than that away. It outlaws PAC's essentially, ensuring the media are the only voice in elections. Jeff Bezos through his Washington Post can promote any candidate he likes, can defame any enemy of the Reich, but the peasants are prohibited from running ads in opposition 90 days prior to an election.

This criminal act outlaws freedom of speech.

Further, all individuals or groups who donate more than $200 in a year must file MONTHLY statements - permit requests for speech - with the FEC. Further this establishes public funding for candidates that matches private donations with public taxpayer funds at a 5 to 1 ratio. This is a direct assault on the Republican party and destroys it. A candidate who goes with the part is fucked.

If a person gives $1 to the Republican party, there is $1 to spend on campaigning. Thomas Washington running as part of the GOP gets $1.

But $1 donated to Adolf Stalin who runs independently is matched with $5 taken from taxpayers who may oppose Herr Stalin.

You listening Mitch McConnell, this ENDS your party.

The GOAL of the Reich is to destroy free and fair elections and ensure that the Reich can simply appoint our rulers with sham elections to give some air of legitimacy.

You mean vote the approved way ?

I mean prove that you understand how the Government was intended to work when it was set up, and which candidates do and don’t believe in those same things.
Thats a very authoritarian stance. What if they want to change things ? Should they not get a chance to stand ?

that looks to be a sensible set of proposals. You would have to be ultra cynical to raise an objection to it.
Then why doesn't Britain do it?
Nationality
Only British, Commonwealth, Irish and European Union citizens are allowed to vote.


You guys are a bunch of fascist haters.

Not via ballots. If you want to make that sort of change do what my forefathers did... overthrow theGovernment by violence.

bringing us one step closer to getting big money OUT of our politics and voters IN!

But we're not done yet. H.R. 1 is now on its way to the Senate for a vote.

Call your Senators at (202) 224-3121 or (202) 224-3091 (TTY) and urge them to pass the For The People Act.

The For the People Act is a once-in-a-generation package of proven reforms that would:
  • Put ordinary Americans ahead of Big Money donors;
  • Call for a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United;
  • Expand and protect voting rights and access to the ballot;
  • End gerrymandering so that electoral districts are fairly drawn; and
  • Combat corruption by holding elected officials to the highest ethical standards.
The American people are tired of a government that prioritizes big money over the needs of the voters. We demand a democracy that works for all of us.

not to mention Citizens United

From the OP: " These reforms, which House Democrats previously passed in 2019, face a challenging path to in the Senate given Democrats’ narrow majority and uncertainty over whether they can overcome a GOP filibuster, but their adoption is critical for preserving American democracy amid unprecedented attack by Republican extremists both in and outside Congress"

That identifies what we find here. Those vehemently opposed to democracy. Dedicated billionaire defenders and apologists. Corporatist shills. Pretend populists. Neoliberal banksters. Extremists indeed. Opposed to the general public, aka "the people." Remember, there will always be far more of us.
Mail-out ballots? How does one VERIFY those piece of shit ballots? The filthy ,Commie Democrats are making a power grab here. They KNOW dam well Trump got 70% of Election Day Votes. Proving they can't win a fair election.

The problem isn't who is allowed to vote. The problem is what they are allowed to vote for.

Dunno, letting people in Venezuela vote in American presidential elections?

What about 12 year olds? Should citizenship matter? What about those in prison? Who votes matters a great deal.

All this Bill is BACKED by President Bezos. Biden is a Figurehead. Harris is a TOKEN. The DNC wanted her ,but even Democrat voters only gave her 2%. She owes Bezos BIGTIME. Might be the first APPOINTED President. Who slept her way into politics. (See Willie Brown). It is a proven fact Harris is a whore.

Aye, there's the rub. Three posters before this one claimed "unconstitutional" yet zero have demonstrated anything to back it up. They just regurgitate what they're told to regurgitate, on cue like good little parrots.

One thing about you Sluggo, you're dumb as all fuck.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Outlawing dissenting speech by enemies of the Reich is a direct violation of the 1st Amendment.

Since private citizens are prohibited from political speech by this bill, and only the Reich controlled press may speak, then that is an abridgment of the freedom of speech.

If one with a low two digit IQ like you can figure that out.

I've already urged my Senators to vote against this bullshit bill.

#1
It's unconstitutional and infringes on the constitutional requirement that STATE LEGISLATURES DETERMINE THEIR STATE'S LAWS REGARDING THE CHOOSING OF ELECTORS.

#2
It opens the door forever to fraudulent voting by mass mail-in, unverified ballots from any source whatsoever, including dead people and non-registered voters.


TO HELL with the Democrat Party!!!

Section 10 of the bill, allowing minors to register to vote.

States may not refuse a voter registration from anyone who is 16 or over. It says that states are not forced into allowing someone under 18 to vote.

Here's where I see that going. Liberal states will allow 16 year olds the ability to vote, and in those families, I can see a lot of dad saying "you're under my roof, your going to vote for who i tell you to vote for"

Today, if a person is 17 and will turn 18 just before the election he is allowed to register. But he can't vote until he is of the 18 year old legal age. All this does is allow a 16 year old that will turn 18 prior to the next election to be able to register. Not the ability to vote before they are 18.

What you see isn't what reality is.
“(1) IN GENERAL.—A State may not refuse to accept or process an individual’s application to register to vote in elections for Federal office on the grounds that the individual is under 18 years of age at the time the individual submits the application, so long as the individual is at least 16 years of age at such time.

“(2) NO EFFECT ON STATE VOTING AGE REQUIREMENTS.—Nothing in paragraph (1) may be construed to require a State to permit an individual who is under 18 years of age at the time of an election for Federal office to vote in the election.”.

The telling part is the second quote, where they say nothing in the first paragraph is construed to mean a state is "required" to permit an individual under 18 to vote". This is pretty vague, cause it could also mean that a state is neither prohibited from allowing people under 18 the ability to vote.

If the law at the federal level says nobody under 18 can vote, then there would have been no need to put that paragraph in there.

The whole thing is rife with potential for abuse and "mistakes", because you know at the next election, if this passes senate, there will be reports and instances of 16 and 17 year olds slipping through the cracks and winding up getting mail in ballots, and voting.

Know who else argues about this? No one. The rest of the world takes these things ("reforms") for granted.

And it's no coincidence that the rest of the world, the part that votes, has a WAY higher average turnout rate than we do.

So it comes down to WHO wants fewer people participating in the electoral process, and WHY they want that.
