H.R. 1 - An existential threat to our Republic


TO: Conservative Activists

FROM: Richard A. Viguerie

SUBJECT: H.R. 1—An existential threat to our Republic

I'm going to be blunt: You and every other conservative in America need to make the defeat of H.R. 1 your number one public policy priority, starting today.

Why? Because it’s the Pelosi Democrats’ number one priority.

And if H.R. 1 becomes law, every issue you care about will be lost forever.

H.R. 1 will change laws to make it almost impossible for conservatives/Republicans to ever again win control of the White House, the Senate, or the House.

We don’t have months, only weeks to alert Americans to the evils of this bill and generate a massive outpouring of grassroots opposition to H.R. 1.

This should be explained to people not as a disagreement between Democrats and Republicans or liberals and conservatives. This is an unfair, anti-American power grab by Pelosi Democrats’ to turn our country into a one-party, socialist dictatorship.

Americans are fair-minded people. If the problem is explained to them and they have the facts and know how to take action, they will rise up and demand fairness.

As you know, the best defense is a strong offense. There were many serious problems with the 2020 election. So, let’s raise our voices and demand passage of good laws to fix our broken election system.

I’ve also linked to articles from the Wall Street Journal and FreedomWorks that will give you information to help write e-letters, postal letters, make phone calls, etc.

I’m refocusing my website,, to make sure conservatives have the information and resources necessary to defeat H.R. 1 and pass a real election law reform bill.

I’m going to do the same with my independent expenditure political action committee,

I hope you will do the same in every way you can, including talking to family, friends, neighbors, fellow church members, co-workers, etc., etc.

H.R. 1 is an existential threat to America, freedom, liberty, conservatives, our national security, our free-market economy, and every other issue you care about.

In the coming days I’ll be giving you more suggestions and information to help defeat H.R. 1.

Feel free to share with me any ideas you have.

Also, please forward this memo to anyone you think could be of help, whether it’s a few people or thousands. Then, urge and encourage them to write and call as many members of Congress as they can in their state.

P.S. Pelosi introduced H.R. 1 on January 4th, yet most Republican leaders have said very little about this power-grab that will put them in the minority forever.

That’s why it’s up to us conservatives to take a leadership role in the effort to defeat H.R. 1.

And that’s why I’m asking you for a gift of $25, $35, $50, $100, $250, $500 or whatever you can afford today so my political action committee, FedUp PAC, can move quickly to empower and mobilize tens of millions of conservatives to pressure the New Democrats to abandon H.R. 1.
