By Bill Moore

We are living in a time where the Democrats are doing their best to silence descent and like magicians, they focus our attention on one action while they are doing another. Based on that we need to take an active role in contacting our legislators to thank them for taking appropriate stands and to urge them to take stands on other pressing legislation.

At the Federal level we need to contact our Members of the House of Representatives and Senate to take appropriate actions either legislatively or through the Courts to fight it. They need to be asked to oppose a bill or if a bill has already passed their area then what are they doing to challenge the bill in court.

  1. HR 1. This bill would allow the Feds to control elections and supersedes a state’s right to do so. It also sets up Federal control to do state redistricting because of the census. It expands mail in balloting without verifications. It has passed the House.  We need to contact Senators Burr and Tillis to not support these measures.
  2. The House passed several gun control bills. One would expand the time the FBI has to do a background check from 3 to 10 days. The other would require private sellers online or at gun shows to do background checks before completing the sale. This criminalizes the failure to do so. Counter argument is it will not stop illegal gun sales to criminals but just further curtails the right of law- abiding gun owners. Again, we need to contact our Senators Burr and Tillis to oppose these bills.
  3. There is a movement at both the Federal and the State level called the Keep it 9 There is an attempt to get an amendment to the Constitution to Keep the Supreme Court at 9 members. Rouser and Tillis on Board. Need to pressure Burr. Also need to bring it up to the State Legislature to be prepared to approve the Amendment if it gets out of Congress.

On the State level

  1. We must tell them to resist any attempts by Congress to limit Gun ownership including using the Courts.
  2. We must urge our representative to take whatever steps necessary, including the Courts, to maintain Voter ID in NC. In addition, we must ask them to make the necessary changes in election law to ensure we do not have the fraud that occurred through Mail in balloting in the last election. We urge you to resist any attempts to increase mail- in voting or attempts to eliminate verification requirements. Further, we urge you to oppose any increase in the time to turn in mail- in ballots or to count ballots after the final election day.
  3. We urge our representatives to take whatever steps necessary to clean up the vote roles.
  4. We must urge the legislators to resist any attempts by the Democrats to move Municipal elections from November to May 2022. Their rationale over a delay in census results will cause a delay in Redistricting should have minimal to no effect on municipal elections. We do not want to create the precedent that allows elections to be moved based on whatever the next crisis the Dems can create for their advantage.
  5. We urge you to rethink the “Certificates of Need” state requirement in Health Care. This allows the State to pick winners and losers. Let the Free Market decide success. If an individual or a corporation decides to expand its business, it can only better serve the Public. One of the ironies of this is attached to COVID 19. One of the principal reasons we incurred lockdowns was the fear that there would not be enough acute care beds to handle the patients. Yet when New Hanover Hospital Center tries to expand and set up acute care beds closer to Pender County, the “Certificate of Need” is denied. Exactly how is that better serving the community? 
  6. In addition, we need to urge our legislators to support the Keep the “9” proposed Constitutional Amendment regarding the size of the Supreme Court.

In addition, please remember to thank our Legislators when they take the right stand or action. I am aware that this is a long list, but we live in trying and fast- moving times. Make the contacts, urge them to take the right actions, thank them when they do and remember on Election Day when they do not.

Together we are making a Difference!!!
