Re: [brights-147] Stand Against the GOP's Voter Suppression Schemes

What is illegal is the purposeful often strategic disenfranchisement and 
disproportionate effect on clearly delineated groups of minorities, 
democrats, and lower socioeconomic groups; Young and old are being cut 
down too. Their supreme court is standing ready, willing to support 
their crimes against our constitution making them all committing or 
suborning treason, in my humble opinion. Like in so many states where 
citizens are actually in danger. We should invite any who feel they are 
in danger to come over to blue states for asylum and have their votes 
tallied by an independent auditor. There are governors and mayors and 
sheriffs who should be immediately investigated, arrested and tried. But 
those states are well armed and in the hands of extremists, in and out 
of government. Its a difficult time for established freedoms.

I used to call republicans, repugnicans and conservatives, don't 
deservitives [sic] but  have refined my views.

They are now officially to me (CAZtm2012); Obstructicans and 
Impotenatives. Quote freely. Meme it up.

Bright Cheers,
Charles

p.s. This is our Bright's community meetup, a closed service for local 
Brights of all stripes and please assume that anyone's efforts to add to 
the exchange here and exude mutually useful culture, as long as it is 
even two Brights who decide to exchange 
links/info/events/in­terests,saliva, etc, may do so as long as there is 
one other bright who is interested. Generally if you disagree or just 
decide to express some details of a counterpoint, hugs for doing so but 
please no negative personalization or insults to any one here. 
Brightness is not only re-enlightenment but encouragement. This is, and 
has been my hope, to continue to provide our Bright home in NYC, expand 
all out allies efforts and maintain the Nat. Hist. Museum as a home 
base, continue our natural international diplomacy and encourage civic 
action.

Critiques should not be personal ones. You would be surprised at how 
broad our readership, members, followers and rebroadcasts are,  in 
addition to other separate cyber channels we all use. We must represent 
despite our differences for we have a clear overarching connection to 
knowledge and reality, the most justifiable worldview. Most brights are 
members of several allied groups locally and nationally and 
particularly, to the great significance to dialogue, diplomacy and 
security in other countries with serious superstitious and 
fundamentalist laws that often exceed medieval, many of our member are 
civic leaders and struggling under barbarism and repression. Bright 
encouragement makes all the difference. We are the broadest umbrella org 
and even if some dislike our name, its our name and continue to 
naturally shine with it.

Many of our loose rules and moderation is common law here but fun to 
repeat now and then, so we continue be aware of each other, communicate 
things we know are useful to others here, though not all. Sometimes we 
explore or participate in the culture of knowledge and science and 
humanity at converging at any number of our or other allied functions 
and always know where a bright stands when we meet one.

I am proud to stand with you all, in our commonality and diversity.

Thanks you for dealing with my sometimes faulty, excessively long sentences.

Charles
