Led By the Progressive Socialist Wing of the Party, Democrats Passed a Bill in the House That, if it Became Law, Would Upend Election Law, says AMAC

HR 1 For the People Act Local Federal Election law fraud progressive socialist election law houseHR 1, the For the People Act of 2019, ‘facilitates fraud,’ say political experts, calling the proposed law ‘the on ramp for the road to socialism,’ says AMAC

WASHINGTON, DC, Mar 8 – The passage of HR 1 in the House of Representatives on Friday “seems to be the on-ramp for the road to socialism.  It confirms the intentions of far-left extremists in Congress to make it easier for socialism to gradually undermine and overtake our Constitution and the legacy of our founding fathers.”

The Lawyers Democracy Fund [LDF], which is focused on election law, has prepared documents that expose what appears to be the move by progressive members of the House of Representatives to drastically change America’s election laws.

According to the LDF, the so-called campaign finance reform bill, aims to overturn “the federalism foundation of the electoral process in the United States that has been in place for the past two centuries.”

Says AMAC, “the enactment of such a law would facilitate fraud, not while the GOP holds the White House and the Senate, but if and when the Democratic Party, with its increasingly progressive tendencies, controls the three branches of government.  And, it would give the left an edge and allow them to further tamper with our rights and our lives.”

The LDF notes that among the provisions in the legislation is one that would essentially abolish voter ID laws.  All that would be needed to cast a ballot would be a signature.  The measure would also allow online and same day registration and a variety of other “permissive” elements that would almost invite tampering.

And, it would “remove state registration signature laws that require an affirmation of eligibility from the voter at the time of registration. The voter is currently required to fill out the necessary information to register to vote and affirm, by signature under oath, that the information is true and correct and the voter to the best of his knowledge is eligible to vote. Under the bill, new registrants would not be required to provide a signature at the time of registration. Instead, they would only have to provide their signature at the time the voter requests an absentee mail ballot or when they check-in to vote at a polling place.”

National Review’s senior writer David French summed up the implications of the self-styled, For the People Act of 2019, whose cosponsors include among 20 others, self-styled Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, [D-NY-14].

“At its essence, the bill federalizes control over elections to an unprecedented scale, expands government power over political speech, mandates increased disclosures of private citizens’ personal information (down to name and address), places conditions on citizen contact with legislators that inhibits citizens’ freedom of expression, and then places enforcement of most of these measures in the hands of a revamped Federal Election Commission that is far more responsive to presidential influence,” French wrote.

AMAC recommends those who are interested should make their own evaluation of the pros and cons of HR 1 and notes that the full LDF assessment is worth a read.

“This is, perhaps, the first of many bald-faced gestures we can expect as progressives, socialists — and even Communists — gain attention and try to influence susceptible millennial voters in the months and years to come.  Vladimir Lenin, who ruled Soviet Russia from 1917 to 1924 when he died, boasted that socialism would provide ‘peace, bread, land;’ instead, there was no peace, bread was scarce and the land belonged to the state.”

The word “progressive” is used several times in the article above. Why do conservatives continue to refer to the left as “progressive”???? In what literary context is the word progressive ever used that gives a NEGATIVE impression? IT ISN’T. So my plea is that conservatives will QUIT using that word in reference to the leftist people/policies!! Think about the connotation of words! Call it what it is: leftist, socialist, communist, immoral, regressive, anti-constitution, liberal, ….. BUT NOT “PROGRESSIVE”.

We need to get rid of the NEW GREEN DEAL! We have listen to Al Gores lies for years. The poles still have ice on them. The Volcano does more damage than humans ever have. We need to outlaw Volcano’s! That would do more good! First get rid o Alexandria Occasional Coirtez. That should be first move!


Democrats are destroying America.

Art Arlo

Stop this progressive stuff. It is a hold over from the SOCIALIST LIBERAL AND COMMUNIST PARTIES. The same agenda but they use Progressive to get young and uniformed people to join them. We can also look at the so called education system with the socialist head of the teachers union their leader in charge.


I am thankful for AMAC and this format to learn that others share my views and concerns. Whenever I read these comments I feel less helpless and hopeless. I believe there are many more like us but the media won’t report it. Let’s keep our unity strong as we stand up for America!


This Green deal is a joke on freedom our freedom. This Democrat from New York should be thrown out of the Congress for her racist views. Anyone else would have been. To allow anyone to vote without proof is horrible. When are the American people gonna say enough? One more way for the socialists to tear down this country. When there is no more food cause no one has to work their will be rioting, murdering complete chaos. Wake up American people. All the democrats think this won’t happen to them but ask yourself why is everyone trying to come here. They sure not pleased with their own country! Vote no no no on the Green Deal!!!!


Socialism is an economic system. It is not a form of government. Typically socialism joins communism because both favor centralized decision making. That said, this bill is very dangerous, which is exactly what the radical liberals want.


Thank you! No Green Deal, No Voter changes, No anything that goes against our Constitution or further limits our rights/freedom. I am so disappointed at the continual push by Democrats to destroy our way of life. Anyone who doesn’t think that’s happening, just compare your healthcare today to what you had in 2005. That’s where we’re heading in everything else – getting a lot less at a higher cost with more restrictions.

I can’t believe it is American Citizens that are supporting socialism in a free republic that has been strong for so many years. This attempt to destroy our country is sick.


Socialism/Communism is from Russia.Who are the Colluders in our Government?The very ones who signed this and who are trying to pass legislation to allow any foreign person to come into this Country at anytime there is an election to vote.That is making the wall moot and destroying our Constitution along with our rights.Their agenda to destroy America from within is on a fast track pace.The time is now for our President to call the military into action and stop these invaders and insurrectinists in our Government.They are now a High Security risk to the whole population of America and to the very Fabric of our Nation.They need to be arrested and charges brought against them for trying to overthrow the government of the United States of America by using the powers of their offices.It’s gone beyond free speech.When they make legislative decisions and put them forth for future political reasons… Read more »

It’s why open borders dems push for open borders….lots of new conscripted democrat voters, who can’t read, write or speak English, but will love the democrat handouts thru welfare, food stamps, free housing, free medical care, free needles, whatever the bribe they like best to vote democrat. It’s the only way democrats keep power, using voter fraud by hundreds of thousands of fake votes in no ID states. You may have noticed that every state where Hillary ‘won’ was a no ID state run by other democrats. Did you notice the 7 CA seats republicans initially won by vote count were ‘flipped’ AFTER the votes were counted when officials ‘FOUND’ just enough democrat ballots (ballot harvesting) to squeak a win out of all 7 counties? Just like Abrams in GA pulling the monkey business in the few metro Atlanta counties that she “won”, by ‘finding’ several thousand ballots, she still… Read more »


God Help us.


Socialism would destroy AMERICA.There are to many slugs that already are working the system and screwing the taxpayer and now you socialist idiots want to create more,i really hope that you bottom feeders wake up in the morning and there is a sluff off sitting on your face,do you now get the message.

Dennis Torres

The people are getting tire of the looney toones trying to overthrow our president. Sound the alarm now and wake up America. Don’t wait until you have to fight for your freedom. Everything comes with a price, I know, I spent 30 years defending this country agains communist, socialists and Marxist. Remember, Hitler, the Cold War, Panama , 9/11. This is how it starts. Fight for your freedoms or loose them. Keep your muskets ready, it’s coming your way.


Have got to stop the obvious communistic, progressive, and ultra liberal actions occurring presently and some 50 years ago.

Our nation is definitely under attack , politically .

We’ve got to find a way!!!


Unfortunately, we have many in the Democratic party that are ignorant of the consequences of their actions. Being ‘history- illiterate’ leaves them without the ‘software’ needed to understand; (thanks to the education system). They don’t understand that history will bear the same results from the same actions. As they say, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results”. Not even current events, with refugees pouring in from socialist countries, brings question to their little minds. I think of Senator ‘Idunno’ (Hirono) who said that ‘democrats are smarter’ (based on an article on the web). She doesn’t know what our laws our, where they came from, how they are to be implemented, and yet her ‘web psychology source’ has her convinced her party is smarter. I know that the ignorance, insolence and insanity of this group of elected officials will lead to our destruction. I know… Read more »

The Democrats belong to the planet “I don’t have a clue”. All they want is the destruction of our country. Our educational system needs to be replaced if this is the final results.


Communism is complete control of the human spirit and the oppression of the human spirit is both brutal and uncomprehensable in it’s so called enforcement

Mary Kenny

So happy to read Amac news. Had no idea about this latest bill

Rexford O Ames

Every time the Democrat Party losses an election regardless at what level. They change the laws to their favor. ( Note: California, Oregon, Washington State and now New York, to mentio0n a few)That;s not a free election. That’s Socialism! Other words to describe that behavior is: Nazism, Communism, Maoism. Just to name a few. The Democrat has a history of subversion that boggles the mind. Think about this. Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy , and ( Ronald Reagan , his was an attempt that failed) were Democrats. They were all assassinated and the Vice Presidents took over and eliminated those Presidents policies and initiated Party directives. Fact: It was the Democratic Party that controlled our congress prior and during the Civil War. Created that war between the North and South. Used Black as the tool for their agenda. Enforced laws that required any Black caught leaving , their owners ,… Read more »
