Elections are the cornerstone of our democracy. The US Constitution gives each State Legislature the power and authority to determine the election laws in their state, not the Federal government.
Today's Democratic Party has championed H.R. 1, which would dismantle the integrity of our elections in 30 different ways, including eliminating the Identity of the voter and allowing foreigners to decide who will be our American President. They have passed this bill in the House where it is now in the US Senate as S-1.

Voting is an iconic embodiment in American civic life. Other than standing for public office, American citizens have no stronger collective civic obligations than those that flow from their ability and responsibility to help shape community policy. The vote is a primary vehicle for exercising those civic responsibilities. That is why the extension of the vote to all the country’s citizens has historically been a critical measure of America’s progress toward living up to its democratic ideals.
The Constitution, the Congress, and the courts have enshrined voting as a central, core, and indispensable element of American citizenship and democracy.
Every state in the United States legally bars non-citizens from voting in national or state elections.
The Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996, signed into law by President Clinton, made it a crime for any non-citizen to vote in a federal election. In some States and even some countries, foreigners have been given the opportunity to participate in LOCAL elections, but NOT National Elections.
Indeed, the association of voting with citizenship is such settled doctrine in American political culture that it is part of the only major nationwide civics test given to American students.
In the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson wrote, "Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed."
But how would Americans consent to be governed? Who should vote? How should they vote? The founders wrestled with these questions. Eventually, the framers of the Constitution left details of voting to the states.
In Article I Section 4, the Constitution says: The times, places and manner of holding elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each state by the legislature thereof; but the Congress may at any time by law make or alter such regulations.
The U.S. Constitution gives each State Legislature the power and authority to determine the election laws in their state. The only time that Congress inserted itself into the process was to ensure that no state election law violated anyone's civil rights.
This proposed Bill would give the federal government tremendous control over how elections are conducted by the States, something that our Founders and original colonies resisted, demanding that this power be reserved to each State.

History has a way of repeating itself, and the crisis that is facing our country today will decide the future of America. Many of us are rightfully upset over the irregularities of the 2020 Presidential Election, and equally frustrated at the many unsuccessful attempts to right what was perceived as a wrong. But we have to move on and look forward.
The Florida and National Republican parties working with States to pass legislation to prevent a repeat of 2020. Some states have already done so. But let's not discount or overlook the ongoing efforts by those who want to fundamentally change America. We are definitely witnessing times that try our souls, and is certainly not the time for Sunshine Patriots or the Summer Soldier - our Country needs you. Are YOU willing to do your part?
Here's the reality. People basically have three choices when faced with any problem. They can ignore it and remain apathetic; They can show concern and hope others step up and solve it; or They can be part of the solution. As Conservatives, we know you care and want to do your part to retain the integrity of our elections and not see our country turned over to those with Marxist ideologies.
If you are convinced that it is not in your self-interest as an American citizen to accept the changes that the Marxists who have hi-jacked the Democratic Party want to implement, then we are asking for your help.
First, educate yourself about the realities of S-1, particularly how it is designed to remove any legitimacy of future elections by allowing ANYONE to vote without proving who they are or if they are even an American citizen.
Along with many other changes, there will be no safety net as to how many illegal and fraudulent mail-in ballots one person or a group of people can cast.
Do YOU want people to be able to cast multiple mail-in ballots? If not, here is what we are asking you to do.
1. Call or write our Florida Senators, Marco Rubio and Rick Scott, and let them know you want them to oppose and vote against S-1 when it comes to the Senate floor for a vote. You can go on-line to their websites and send an email, or USE THE LINKS BELOW.
2. Talk to others about this Bill and ask them to do the same.
3. Attend a Charlotte County rally and stand along side people from various political persuasions who want to Protect The Vote and oppose S-1. Make a Sign and bring a friend. This is a non-partisan issue. Check out this website or the website of the Charlotte County Republican Party at www.charlottegop.com, or their Facebook page for dates, times and locations.
