The Left is all too eager to tear up our guiding American documents and values. The latest under attack appears to be the Constitution, drafted by the framers to “secure the Blessings of Liberty” for generations. It guarantees the freedom to hold our religious beliefs, to protect our families, and other God-given rights.
Increasingly, the Left is picking apart the Constitution for political convenience. After Democrats lost the 2016 presidential election, they called for the Electoral College to be dismantled. Now, they are disregarding Article 1 in an attempt to federalize the election and create a national universal ballot system.
Desperate to overturn the 2016 election, Democrats ignored the constitutional rights of the executive branch and launched a witch hunt against President Trump. More recently, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has attempted to politicize the 25th Amendment to remove a duly elected president. I introduced a resolution condemning the speaker for her political games, which come in the middle of an election, all while she refuses to support targeted relief for hardworking families impacted by the pandemic.
Now, Big Tech is aggressively limiting our First Amendment right to free speech and free press. These companies are using protections afforded under a law passed before their existence (Section 230 of the 1996 Communications Decency Act) to silence conservative voices. Last week, Justice Clarence Thomas called on Congress to update these laws to “make them more appropriate for an Internet-driven society.”
