Call your Senators TODAY about the Mess Up the Vote Act
October 18, 2021
The Senate on is expected to vote soon on the so-called “Freedom to Vote” Act, S. 2747, by which Democrats want to totally mess up the vote. They offered it as a “compromise” to the disastrous For the People Act passed by the House but then blocked by Senate Republicans.
Make no mistake, Freedom to Vote is no better. I need you to get involved with stopping this bill today. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is expected to call for a cloture vote today to see if 10 Republicans will cross the aisle and vote to advance this noxious bill. I don’t think they will, but this is not the kind of thing we can make assumptions about.
Like the For the People Act, Freedom to Vote would pave the way for a federal takeover of the election process, contrary to the Constitution, and stripping states of the rights to conduct their own elections. It takes direct aim at states like Georgia and Texas that recently passed voting laws the Democrats don’t like and that the media incorrectly describe as voter suppression laws.
They are, as President Trump says, the enemies of the people.
The act would allow for same-day voter registration, automatic voter registration and nationwide mail-in voting, and all three measures are ripe for fraud. Bizarrely, the act would mandate that poll workers be trained in “gender ideology.”
The bill also calls for non-profits to disclose their donors. It’s disguised as a way to shine a light on “dark money” groups but it really is intended to intimidate groups like Priests for Life that are fighting against the Democrats’ most sacred cow: Abortion for all.
Will you call your senators today? We know all the Democrats are on board but it wouldn’t hurt to let them know your convictions as a voter. If one or both of your senators are Republican, it’s important to ask them to stand strong on the cloture vote and to say NO to this terrible bill.
May I count on you to take this action today?
