The top legislative priority of U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is to 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.

Tell your U.S. senators and representative to publicly oppose and vote against the expansion of government regulation and censorship of state elections.

The House version (H.R. 1) and Senate version (S. 1) of Pelosi's and Schumer's bills are deceptively named the "For the People Act." 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 as a way to silence dissenting opinion.

Pelosi’s and Schumer's versions 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.
 
Heritage Foundation has provided a good analysis of the "For the People Act." You can read it here.

The U.S. Congress could be voting on these bills soon.

Take action now before it's too late and let your voice be heard.
