People can support the Texas Heartbeat Act because it punishes the taking the life of a child with a heartbeat contrary to the 5th and 14th Amendments to the Constitution and provides individual citizens, not the Government, the authority to enforce the law through civil lawsuits.

At the same time, people can object to the Government mandating they wear a mask for the same reason women can object to the Government mandating restrictions on their reproductive rights (My Body My Choice). Again, both merely are exercising their rights as individual citizens under the Constitution.

At the same time, people can support the National Rifle Association for the same reason they can support the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People; both are grassroots organizations of individual citizens formed to protect exercising their rights as individual citizens under the Constitution.

Actually, the march on the Capitol on January 6 is a piece of the whole, just like the March on Washington in 1967 to protest the Vietnam War; both were individual citizens exercising their right under the First Amendment to peaceably assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

The common thread is the exercise of rights guaranteed to individual United States citizens by our primary law, the Constitution. You are certainly not an idiot but obviously no one has ever made you aware of these basic concepts.

No, Marti, you are a sensible, reasonable, common sense person who thinks clearly, can connect the dots, and do not submit to cult-like thinking.
