Facts About Dems' Voting Bill Revealed: Here Are the 4 Things They Want So Trump Never Wins:
House Democrats’ first bill in the 117th Congress is called the “For the People Act of 2021.” From the sound of it, one might think that the legislation promotes American ideals of liberty, freedom and democracy.
It does anything but.
According to a report issued by The Heritage Foundation, the proposed statute — which has been assigned bill number H.R. 1 — contains a parade of horribles that will undermine election integrity across the nation, breed distrust in the accuracy of electoral results and discourage citizens from participating in the political process.
Make no mistake: These measures are designed to give Democrats a permanent electoral advantage in federal contests and to ensure that Donald Trump will never again win the White House.
Federalization of Election Laws
The first victim of the bill is federalism — the constitutional principle that rejects standardized national approaches to policy issues in favor of allowing states and local communities to address them based on the specific needs and interests of their citizens.
Such important societal developments as the abolition of slavery, the establishment of women’s suffrage and the advent of child labor protections were born out of such state laboratories of democracy.
The division of power between the federal government and the states also serves as an important check and balance against U.S. government overreach. --->READ MORE HERE

Mitch McConnell accuses Democrats of plot to 'nationalize' elections:
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on Thursday accused House Democrats of plotting to “nationalize” elections, arguing that legislation headed for a vote next week would mandate mail-in voting and forbid states from implementing voter ID laws.
“In this country, states and localities run elections,” Mr. McConnell said on the Senate floor. “Those of us in the federal government do not get a stranglehold over the ways in which voters decide our fates. House Democrats want to change that.”
The Kentucky Republican said the For the People Act would result in a national policy on election issues such as early voting, registration and no-excuse absentee balloting. He called the bill a “sweeping federal takeover” of state and local election procedures.
“They want to force all 50 states to allow the absurd practice of ballot harvesting, where paid operatives can show up at polling places carrying a thick stack of filled-out ballots with other people’s names on them,” Mr. McConnell said. “They want to forbid states from implementing voter ID or doing simple things like checking their voter rolls against change-of-address submissions. They want to mandate no-excuse mail-in balloting as a permanent norm, post-pandemic.”
Both parties in states coast to coast are pushing to address election security and integrity in the wake of the bitterly disputed 2020 presidential contest. --->READ MORE HERE
