Skip to comments.Democrats Pushing to Permanently Rig Elections?
Posted on 03/04/2021 3:44:19 AM PST by Kaslin
Pretty much anything they say, know they are actively working toward the opposite and the bills they push try to codify it into law. Such is the case with the harmless sounding “For the People Act.” What it really does is federalize elections in a way so as to rig all future elections for Democrats.
The most famous example of this Orwellian naming of bills is the “Affordable Care Act.” It caused at least 5 million Americans to lose the health insurance they liked and raised premiums and deductibles to the point that people effectively had no health insurance for tens of millions more. But it was hardly the last example of the fraudulent naming of legislation and the lies Democrats tell about it.
The latest COVID relief bill, called the “American Rescue Plan,” has little to do with rescuing anyone who isn’t a Democrat Party donor or interest group, with only a tiny percentage of the almost $2 trillion having anything tangentially related to COVID. The rest is pay-offs to unions, Silicon Valley, Democrats who’ve run their state’s economy into the ground, and everyone else in the progressive coalition. The “Equality Act” strips Americans of their religious freedoms and female athletes of their rights to compete fairly.
And now we have the “For the People Act,” which Democrats insist will “expand voting rights” and “secure future elections.” It does nothing of the sort.
What FPA does is federalize elections, taking power away from states and has Washington setting the rules. And by Washington, I mean Democrats.
Nationwide automatic voter registration, vote by mail, ballot harvesting, stripping voter ID laws, felons voting, and federal standards for drawing Congressional districts are just a few of the provisions the left has crammed into this abomination. If you wanted to corrupt all future elections, you couldn’t do it more efficiently than the FPA does it.
If people can’t bring themselves to do the simple task of registering to vote, they shouldn’t vote. You almost have to actively avoid registering, but if it’s automatic, the pool of people not voting grows significantly. With the mail in ballot provision, that leaves a lot of ballots that won’t be filled out by the legal recipient but could easily be filled out by someone else.
There would be no signature verification, making discarded or stolen ballots as good as cash on the black market. We’ve all seen pictures of stacks of ballots mailed to apartment complexes just sitting around or tossed into the trash. That’s gold for political hacks. Given the “walking around money” Democrats are famous for, buying ballots to be filled out later from people would become a new sport.
If you can get your hands on the mailed ballots of people who didn’t register, have no history or intention of voting, and no signature verification because they never filled out a voter registration card, it would make rooting out fraud nearly impossible. The only way to invite more fraud would be to allow Democrats to print ballots.
Democrats have also included federalizing the drawing of Congressional districts. Leftists have railed for years against gerrymandering, the drawing of districts to favor one party over the other. They point out where Republicans have done it, but ignore places like Maryland, where the former Democrat Governor admitted under oath that he drew those lines explicitly to eliminate as many GOP seats as possible. It worked, Maryland went from three Republicans in the House to one under the new districts, and the one only survived because they couldn’t find a way to marginalize all the Republicans in the state.
Democrats draw their lines based on race, assuming only someone with the same skin color or ethnicity can represent people – the concept of us all being Americans be damned. The FPA incentivizes more of this because racism is their bread and butter.
Everything in the FPA is specifically designed to advantage fraud and Democrats, and it’s couched as how they present everything – as being in the name of “justice.” It’s every bit the lie everything else they do or say is.
It’s really an attempt to cement a permanent majority for Democrats, by any means necessary. It will easily pass the House, it is in the Senate where the real fight will be. Joe Biden will sign anything his handlers put in front of him, which means the fight over killing the filibuster is about to heat up again. Sharpen your elbows and get ready, because this one is for all the marbles.
Does a bear crap in the woods?
it worked so well this time, of course they want to make it a permanent feature of our elections.
Thank you GOP
I would like to thank the Republicans who didn’t bother to vote in November and the dead Democrats who did for the mess we have now.
“(e) Ability Of Replacement Systems To Administer Ranked Choice Elections.—To the greatest extent practicable, an eligible State which receives a grant to replace a voting system under this section shall ensure that the replacement system is capable of administering a system of ranked choice voting under which each voter shall rank the candidates for the office in the order of the voter’s preference.
Which is why the Republicans are trying to do it at the state level first.
“Democrats Pushing to Permanently Rig Elections?”
Actually the Democrats are simply holding the Republican Party to their position of just a few months ago, when they agreed that NO CHEATING took place in the 2020 election.
The Republicans lose either way - if they fight the bill because it will invite fraud, they come off as hypocrites, since they ‘claimed’ there was no fraud in 2020, despite these measures being in place. If they don’t fight it, well, their days in DC will be numbered. But the Dems will keep a few of them around, just as Iran keeps 1,000 or so ‘well-behaved’ Jews around to ‘prove’ that they are not anti-semitic, but rather only have an issue with Israel.
Yes. that is what they are doing!
Do you who are 45 or younger... do you get what is going on? Are we so comfortable we would let socialism/communism in our government? Do you know this is what is in the office of the Presidency by a man who doesn’t know what is going on and others are calling the shots..
We aren’t sure who.. but barry is in it. he wanted to fundamentally change our country and its in full gear.. Minnesota sent the progressive far left who came to out country to change it to Muslim commie..
I go back some years.. this would have been treason.. today its ignorance galore allowing this and you will never be able to get our country back if this succeeds.
All the agencies.. departments.. of our government have been blinded.. given up to their corruption... it has consumed them.
and it will consume you if we let this happen.
This particular provision is meant to solidify the concept of “jungle primaries” into the election procedures everywhere. It also means that a runoff after selection of the top two candidates may have two members of the same party running against each other.
This happens all the time in California. And it is happening in other states as well, as the belief in this apostasy spreads.
“well behaved Republicans” love it!
The final straw came from kemp.. gov of ga.
he gave a senate seat to a woman who could not win.. instead of giving it to a seasoned good man.. Doug Collins....
kemp would not help get the bogus votes out.. he did nothing.. and we lost the senate..
one stupid decision
RCV software was used to screw with the presidential election. Even in states that don’t have RCV.
That’s the real purpose of this legislation.
To ensure that the software is on machines nationwide.
That’s Pelosi language for, ‘f*&k you’!
With or without this bill I think they have already proven they can ‘rig’ any election they want to. I don’t see us “voting” our way out of this.
The RATs have succeeded. Mail in ballots. SCOTUS hiding under their desks when the issue comes up. Wetbacks flooding into the country who always vote RAT. Blax always, always whining about "gimme more free stuffs" and always voting RAT. Repugnants in Kongress going along with all the above.
Nobody is pushing. They've succeeded. Who's going to stop them now?
Why is there a question mark in the title?
“For the People [in Congress] Act”
Thank you, gutless RINOs who controlled state legislatures of GA, PA, AZ, MN and WI. You were happy to cruise to victory on Trump's coat tails while he was shafted because the cheating didn't affect you. Good luck in 2022, when the cheating will be used against you like they did in the GA run-offs.
Republicans did vote. In greater numbers for a sitting president EVER! It just couldn’t beat the stuffed ballot boxes the democrats had in the trunks of their cars.
Doesn’t the Constitution already specify that ONLY State Legislatures can make or change the laws that govern elections in their State?
This would “seem” to be a key Federalism issue that would rapidly get smacked down by SCOTUS IF it ever survives the Senate in any way.
Unless the Dems successfully kill the filibuster, though, I don’t see how it WILL pass the Senate.
Praying I’m right..because this would codify rampant election fraud for the rest of time and be the biggest single disaster the country will have faced in many decades.
