It has come to the attention of the Orlando Republic that Central Florida residents have chosen to rally at 6:00 pm on Monday, March 8, 2021 located at the Orange County Courthouse, 425 N Orange Ave, Orlando, FL 32801 to make themselves heard on this unconstitutional bill.
The Preamble starts with, WE THE PEOPLE of the United States and not FOR THE PEOPLE of the United States. The House of Representatives on March 3, 2021 passed H.R.1 (We the people act) legislation we the people should see as overreaching federal interference in our state rights and a full out assault on our constitution. No Person except a natural born Citizen...shall be eligible to the Office of President. Take that in for a moment because, no candidate running for president ever provides their birth certificate. H.R.1 will fix this correct? The answer is no but, you must provide your tax returns. What logical political leader thought that was constitutional? You don't need an identification card to vote because the law states the only requirement is to provide the last 4 digits of your social security number. Automatic voter-registration, unless you opt out, and a guarantee same day registration. Why would you need same day registration if you're automatically registered to vote? Our elected officials can no longer represent us in redistricting because the Federal Government mandates an independent commission to approve newly drawn lines. We must make sure the commission has five Democrats, five Republicans and five Independents (Independents don't have a political leaning). Luckily they put in a public challenge in place so they can ignore us in some public forum. Public funding for elections is in here with small donor matching funds. $1.9 Trillion isn't enough spending they want government to pay for their elections too. Good news, Facebook and Twitter will have to disclose source and amount spent on political ads. No, if you're assuming that will be for TV and Radio you'd be dead wrong. This bill is filled with a BIG GOVERNMENT power grab, would disenfranchise the educated and dedicated voters. This bill deserves to die in the Senate and we need you to join together and standing up against this partisan DEMOCRAT bill. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) explained it best when he said, “It is not designed to protect Americans’ vote — it is designed to put a thumb on the scale in every election in America, so that Democrats can turn a temporary majority into permanent control.”
