What if the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, couldn’t be removed as Speaker of the House? And, what if there was only a Democrat Party, without opposition or dissent from Republicans?
And, what if a compliant media establishment censored all divergent viewpoints, and academic institutions reinforced the edicts coming down from the Democrat tyrants?
And, what if the ruling Democrat Party used the fact that all opposition had been effectively vanquished to rule, not govern, in autocratic fashion?
Sounds pretty sinister. We’ve seen the nasty results of this type of government all over the world. The former U.S.S.R., fascist Germany and Italy, Cambodia, Venezuela, and China.
We are on the path toward such an outcome. When Nancy Pelosi became Speaker in 2019, the first thing she did was institute a rule change that made it virtually impossible to remove her as Speaker. She made sure that she was more powerful than the Wizard of Oz.
Then, and this year, the Democrats have disregarded two-hundred years plus of tradition by altering rules to effectively stifle Republican opposition in Congress. Too many of our Republicans in Congress are being acquiescent.
Big tech, like private media companies when fascist regimes rose last century, are the censorship arm of the Radical Left. What book burning was in the 1920’s and 1930’s is canceling one’s social media outlets in the 2020’s.
For Pete’s sake, a member of Congress is proposing a truth ministry similar to that in Orwell’s dystopian novel 1984, and the media didn’t even question her. They nodded their head with assent and approval.
Universities and colleges began years ago are limiting expression of conservative opinions to “free speech” zones. They now churn out indoctrinated Leftists, who reflexively hate patriotism and are intolerant to anyone who has a different political ideology, although they are perfectly comfortable if a white male identifies as a grapefruit.
The Leftstream media and the indoctrinated march to whatever tune their Leftist political leaders play. In particular, they desire a single ruling party—the Democrats, without objection, opposition, or dissent.
To further the objectives of the Left the Democrats in Congress propose a new election law that will permanently entrench Democrats in power, and permanently make Republicans politically irrelevant. The Bill is HR 1.
Similar to the first bill introduced under Speaker Pelosi’s regime in 2019, this bill is chockful of systems that will make voting ultimately irrelevant as it sanctions mechanisms that legitimize electoral dishonesty.
The first problem is that electoral control will be centralized in that bastion of integrity, Washington, D.C.
Add in a myriad of other gifts to the Democrats and its uni-party minions such as taxpayer funding for politicians and killing all voter identification laws. Throw in mandatory nationwide mail-in balloting and ballot harvesting, and it is plain to see that we will likely never see a free and honest election again.
And it gets worse because cleaning up voter rolls becomes more difficult, we allow 16-year-olds to register to vote, and provide for voting by prisoners and a path for illegal aliens to vote.
In a representative republic, people select their representatives by the franchise. Democrats love power and want to keep their power. By preventing opposition in Congress, censoring dissent, and indoctrinating young adults to adore authoritarian tyranny the Left hopes to keep control over the nation.
Passage of the election legislation proposed by Pelosi’s minions will likely guarantee single party rule and domination. And, despotic Democrat rule isn’t good for anybody.
