The U.S. Senate is expected to cast a procedural vote today (Monday) to advance a bill (S. 2747) that would launch an assault against the First Amendment and against free and fair elections. Without these foundational freedoms, America will be unable to maintain her democratic republic, and if this bill, deceptively called the “Freedom to Vote Act,” advances toward debate, that’s what will very likely happen. Without the foundational freedom of elections, America will be unable to maintain her democratic republic.
Tell your U.S. senators to publicly oppose and vote against the expansion of government regulation and censorship of state elections. Tell them to vote against the procedural advancement of S. 2747.
This bill coming up for a procedural vote is said to be a compromise to the House version (H.R. 1) and Senate version (S. 1) which are deceptively named the “For the People Act.” The so-called compromise is just as destructive.
Their bills are not about the citizenry but about Democrats preserving and cementing political power. They would remove the constitutional authority of the individual states to run federal elections and put that power into the hands of those in the U.S. Congress and the administrative state.
These deceptive and destructive bills would require non-profit organizations like American Family Association to publicly disclose financial donors’ names to the federal government. These names would then be made available to the public and searchable on government websites. Names of donors could then be used, for example, to publicly intimidate those whose religious convictions define marriage as being between one man and one woman, or those who believe that sex is a fixed biological reality established at conception. Such an act of intimidation of donors would harm the ability of non-profit organizations to advocate on behalf of their supporters. These bills would weaponize the Federal Election Commission against Americans and use the force of government to silence dissenting opinion.
Schumer's version of the bill would also federalize state elections by imposing unconstitutional mandates and would expand federal government regulation of state elections. This agenda would violate the rights of states and their citizens to establish voter qualifications to ensure integrity at the polls by enforcing "progressive" laws on voter identification, absentee ballots, and mail-in voting.
The U.S. Senate may be voting to advance this bill today. Before it's too late, let your voice be heard and tell your U.S. senators to publicly oppose and vote against S. 2747.
