Why H.R. 1 will destroy democracy

Published in Blog on March 17, 2021 by Mark Meckler

The 2020 election was a disaster by almost any standard.

Whether you supported Donald Trump or Joe Biden, the uncertainty and confusion following the presidential race threatened the stability of our system of government. Now, with the passage of H.R. 1, Democrats in Congress are hoping to make 2020 the status quo.

It’s not hyperbole to say that the bill represents a complete federal takeover of the state election process and a usurpation of the states’ most basic constitutional responsibilities. In fact, the better title for H.R. 1 should be the "Death of Democracy Act."

If you cut through the jargon and legalese, the Death of Democracy Act would mandate mail-in balloting in all states, strip voter ID laws in 35 states, remove the ability for states to manage their own voting rolls, and register non-citizens to vote.

Not stopping there, the bill would create a commission of unelected federal officials called the "Commission to Protect Democrat Institutions." If that title reminds you of old-fashioned Communist speak you’d be right, the commission will have the power require judges to testify regarding the rulings they issue.

As the Heritage Foundation concluded, this commission "would be given the authority to compel judges to testify and justify their legal decisions, threatening their independent judgement and subjecting them to political pressure and harassment."

And speaking of intimidation and harassment, the favorite tools of persuasion for the Left, the bill would also force some non-profits to publish the identities of their donors, subjecting private citizens to the machinations of Cancel Culture and the blacklisting mob.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention for proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington, DC.

I support the Convention of States Project; a national effort to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of Article V Convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

I ask that you support the Convention of States Project and consider becoming a co-sponsor of the resolution. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have:

info@conventionofstates.com or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.

Respectfully, [Your Name]
