Republicans need to resist the Democrat election control

A bunch of Democrat professors have posted an open letter:
We, the undersigned, are scholars of democracy who have watched the recent deterioration of U.S. elections and liberal democracy with growing alarm. Specifically, we have watched with deep concern as Republican-led state legislatures across the country have in recent months proposed or implemented what we consider radical changes to core electoral procedures in response to unproven and intentionally destructive allegations of a stolen election. ...

We urge members of Congress to do whatever is necessary — including suspending the filibuster — in order to pass national voting and election administration standards

No, that Democrat measure, H.R. 1, is the most radical change to election law in American history.

It is telling that Democrats want to abolish traditional Senate voting rules in order to impose its idea of Democracy.

It is also telling that they complain about "intentionally destructive allegations". It is not really possible for allegations to be destructive. An election should be demonstrable free and fair. It should not be dependent on no one making any allegations.

Donald Trump won a majority of the verifiable votes cast on election day. Democrats want us to accept Biden's win based on secret vote casting and counting. We should not. If allegations lead to fairer elections, so much the better.

But H.R. 1 is just a Democrat power play. For the most part, Republicans just want to return elections to the fairer procedures of several years ago.

The NY Times says it is all about race, as usual. The whole point is to import non-white voters to displace White voters. It says the Democrats want to counteract what Tucker Carlson said:

In a democracy, one person equals one vote. If you change the population, you dilute the political power of the people who live there. So every time they import a new voter, I become disenfranchised as a current voter.
Democracy is not compatible with open borders, or with identity politics.
