According to the official summary of the bill, it looks as if the proposed law will have your best intentions at heart, saying the following: “This bill addresses voter access, election integrity, election security, political spending, and ethics for the three branches of government.” What’s wrong with that?
On the surface, this bill claims to secure election integrity, and bring confidence that voting will work for everybody. “If we don’t see sweeping reforms that are contained in this bill passed, we are fucked as a nation,” says Josh Silver of Represent.Us, a nonpartisan nonprofit organization. Doesn’t seem so nonpartisan when you listen to what Tucker Carlson of Fox News had to say about the bill:
Tucker pointed out the danger the bill possesses to free speech. “The ‘For The People Act’ is the foundation of the Democratic Party strategy to control the federal government well into your grandchildren’s middle age. Take a look at it,”
“Like most revolutionary documents, it’s not a very exciting read — nothing sounds especially radical at first. The bill begins by declaring that — contrary to Article I of the United States Constitution — Congress has an “ultimate supervisory power over federal elections.”
Tucker Carlson pointed out that:
“Under our current loss, states get to decide how much fraud they will tolerate: Florida requires you to show photo identification in order to vote. California just wants you to vote Democrat,” he said.
“If H.R. 1 passes, all 50 states will be California — the entire country will have ballot harvesting and mail-in voting. Think about that.”
This is arguably the most important aspect of the bill:
“Under H.R. 1, [people] could freely go house to house and apartment to apartment collecting unknown thousands of ballots and then dump them all in a ballot dropbox. No one would have any idea if those ballots had been tampered with at any point along the way or would there be any way to prove it if they had been tampered with,” Carlson continued.
“H.R. 1 also makes it harder for election observers to file complaints about any of this because complaining is racist.”
“A system like that is suicidal for democracy and no other free country would tolerate it.”
Democrats support mail-in ballots when the election is concerned, perhaps that has something to do with the opportunity it provides for fraud, but when their business is concerned, it’s a different story entirely. Carlson pointed out:
“When it’s their power at stake Democrats have a totally different position,” “he said, remarking on Amazon corporate’s criticism of mail-in type balloting for its unionization election in Alabama.” Fox News reported.
“You should know this is not considered hypocrisy. They don’t mind if they are caught breaking their own rules, they are not offended by double standards. They want power, this is a power grab and that’s all it is,” he said.
