Kamala: Our Democracy Is Doomed Without Federal Takeover Over Voting System

It’s not a day without a Y if some Democratic Party elite isn’t fearmongering about Democracy In Peril, eh?

Harris: US won’t be ‘role model’ of democracy if voting rights legislation isn’t passed

spite houseVice President Kamala Harris said the United States may lose its standing as a role model for the world – and democracy itself would be put at risk – if voting rights legislation is not passed.

Harris, who has taken the lead on voting rights, said during a wide-ranging interview broadcast Sunday on CBS News’ “Face the Nation” that people around the world are watching the United States “because we have held ourselves out to be a model of … the ability of a democracy to coexist with an economic strength and power.”

But Harris warned that if lawmakers don’t pass legislation to preserve voting rights, the United States’ standing could be in jeopardy.

“We have been a role model saying, ‘You can see this and aspire to this and reject autocracies and autocratic leadership,’” Harris said. “Right now, we’re about to take ourselves off the map as a role model if we let people destroy one of the most important pillars of a democracy, which is free and fair elections.”

These are the same people who are 100% against voter ID and any measures to restrict voting to one person one vote. These are the same people who want to allow non-citizens, including illegal aliens, to vote. The Freedom To Vote act is essentially a federal takeover of all voting, and would certainly be challenged at the Supreme Court as an overreach of Legislative authority and the Constitution. It would register all felons to vote immediately. It would federalize all elections, it would limit free speech and association, and weaken protections.

But, if Kamala is so worried about Democracy (which we do not have, of course, but, a federal republic), what her hyper-leftist folks?

U.S. Rep Jayapal asks Biden to continue focus on ‘Build Back Better’, urges executive action

U.S. Representative Pramila Jayapal, a leading liberal House Democrat, has asked President Joe Biden to continue focusing on his social spending legislation and urged him to use executive action despite Senator Joe Manchin’s public rejection of the plan.

In an opinion piece in the Washington Post on Sunday, Jayapal, chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC), wrote that the CPC will soon release a plan for some actions like lowering costs, protecting the health of families, and tackling climate action.

“The Progressive Caucus will continue to work toward legislation for Build Back Better, focused on keeping it as close to the agreed-upon framework as possible”, she wrote in the newspaper https://wapo.st/32jgLRb. (lots of whining about Joe Manchin, who’s putting his constituents and what they want over Party)

“Taking executive action will also make clear to those who hinder Build Back Better that the White House and Democrats will deliver for Americans”, Jayapal wrote.

Wouldn’t the Executive Office doing things not authorized by Congressional legislation, except by finding tiny little phrases, be Bad For Democracy? That’s why we have a separation of powers.

Here’s an idea: break up the Build Back Better (yeah, right) bill up into all the different sections and have votes on each one. Let’s see where that goes.

    Wait a minute….
    Isn’t Camel Harrass in charge of fixing the Illegal Alien Invasion Problem?

    OOPS, silly me…She fixed that didn’t she?
    She must have fixed that problem, otherwise our Glorious unbiased Main Stream Media would have called her on her Blatant Hypocrisy and Treasonous failure to protect and defend the Country she swore an oath to serve and protect….
    Unless of course the MSM is actually biased and refuses to report that which goes against their Masters…

      MSG wants to lynch VP Harris! Was he shouting “Hang Mike Pence!” on Jan 6?

      Perhaps he hates Vice Presidents.

  2. alanstorm says:

    In other news, Kamala still thick as a brick.

  3. Hairy says:

    Teach knows that restrictions of any type on voting helps Republicans
    Forcing people in cities to wait hours to vote helps Republicans
    If people in the military can vote by mail (and Teach assumes they will vote Republican) why can’t all citizens vote by mail?

  4. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Republicans wish to restrict the right of eligible Americans to cast a vote. Any obstacle they put in place will have an exaggerated effect on Democratic voters – the poor, minorities, women, the young.

    That is the GOPs only objective. Crippling democracy is the only way the GOP can keep power.

    Since the GOP has destroyed democracy state by state, of course they wish to maintain their stranglehold to prevent the nationwide majority of non-GOPher Americans from having their say.

    White, Christian, male GOPhers know what’s best for America! They created America and ruling is their natural right.

  5. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    One of Teach’s links celebrated the ACLU’s questions regarding the For the People Act

    Here’s what the linked ACLU letter to House leaders said, in part:

    After the non-stop assault on the integrity of our elections by the Trump Administration, culminating in a mob of his white supremacist supporters storming the Capitol building to disrupt the counting of the electoral votes that certified President Biden’s election, it is more important than ever for Congress to pass legislation to restore and expand voting rights and strengthen our democracy. The For the People Act, at its heart, seeks to serve those goals and we applaud Congress for setting this important legislation as a priority.


    But H.R. 1 still contains flaws that leave it vulnerable to legal challenges and that could disproportionately harm progressive advocacy.

    Teach: Democracy (which we do not have, of course, but, a federal republic)

    Connies exclaim this flawed canard repeatedly to minimize the importance of democracy in America. America is a democracy, just not a direct democracy. Since we do not vote on every issue but rather elect politicians to represent our wishes, we are a “representative democracy”. We elect our representatives for school boards, city, county, state and federal governments.

    So yes Virginia, there is a democracy, which is the United States of America.

  6. Unkle C says:

    Sorry Elwood, the country was formed as a republic, ‘if we could keep it’. The democratic form of government is rather unstable and usually short lived and the founders were aware of this, therefore the representative republic form of government.
    The United States of America remains a republic until the likes of you complete its’ destruction.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Sorry C, the the United States of America is a representative democracy, until the likes of you complete its destruction (turning it into a theocratic oligarchy).

      • drowningpuppies says:

        Rimjob, bedwetter that he is, doesn’t even know what kind of government we have here in the U.S.

        Bwaha! Lolgf https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_cool.gif

      • L.G.Brandon says:

        Yes, Dowd, We remember….”I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the representative democracy for which it stands, one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and Justice for all.” Yep, you’re right as usual.

        • Unkle C says:

          Not to defend him, but Elwood is simply taking the simple dictionary definition of democracy, which happens to be the same as the definition of republic. The difference is in the details and the last time I looked, our nation was established as a representative republic. The original method of selecting the congress, the senate, and the president were construed to give the people a voice, the several states a voice, and an executive to handle the executive duties. Unfortunately, it has been bodgered over the years to what we have now.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Unkle C, like most cons today, wishes we could go back to the good old days when women, Blacks, Hispanics, and the poor couldn’t vote.

            When “our nation was established”, the Constitution turned voting over the states where most limited the franchise to white, land-owning males (less than 10% of the total population). By Constitutional Amendment, the nation has become more democratic over the centuries.

    Teach: These are the same people who are 100% against voter ID and any measures to restrict voting to one person one vote. These are the same people who want to allow non-citizens, including illegal aliens, to vote.

    Mr Teach is just spewing nonsense. He should read the bills to find out what’s actually in them.

    • L.G.Brandon says:

      We are reading the bills Dowd, that’s why your crap don’t fly any more. Your entire party is nothing but power mad grifters and corrupt child molesters. Oh, and with a few commie bangers and pant’s crappers thrown in.

      You’re still lying about the election and Covid even though the truth is spreading like Kamala’s legs in Willie Browns car.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:


        From you’re readings can you identify where in the bills they ban 1)voter ID 2) ban measures to restrict voting to one person one vote or 3) allow non-citizens, including illegal aliens, to vote.

        You and tRump continue to lie about the election. Check back on Covid in a month and we’ll see who’s right. Your lies are spreading like Melania’s legs in her john’s back seat.

      Long story short. My name is Carlos Valvaldi. I live at 1310 N. Americana Ave. Los Angeles, CA. I attest to this by signing my name digitally.

      ZZZZTTTTTT……….wrong. I am not Carlos and I do not even live in the USA but by using a simple DNS web browser and my own virtual machine running my own server, I can trick anyone into thinking I am in LA and I certainly am who I claim to be. In addition, I can change the names and addresses of voters willy nilly that are inactive and make them active for the Democratic National Convention or the Grand Old Party to abuse as they wish.

      Notice here I take no sides. Left or right. HR-1 is evil incarnate.

      Doing anything Online is inherently dangerous. The Internet is the wild west. Why do you think the left is so adamant about using the internet and climbing into bed with the giant authoritarian Silicon Valley corps that can destroy your life as easily as you can pick your nose??

      Social scores are coming. The vax cards are just the beginning. In the future, you will have to have your sensitivity training, your anti-Founding fathers certification, and your public denunciation of the 2nd amendment before you can work, go on a cruise, or fly in a plane.

        Is that why you left the US?

        • Est1950 says:

          I left the USA because there is work to be done in South America.

          I chose the USA and was not born to its privileges using legal means of obtaining the proper documentation and going through all the necessary steps to become a USA citizen.
