Political Courage Located

Closing Thought–21Oct21

States that are controlled by the GOP have been passing a whole array of bills that severely limit voting and health issues and education and it appears as if there is nothing that can be done to stop this curtailing of our rights….and then a glimmer of hope has broke through the political barriers being erected.

A few District Attorneys are refusing to prosecute some of the laws passed by the GOP….

When Republican lawmakers in Tennessee blocked a policy to ease up on low-level marijuana cases, Nashville’s top prosecutor decided on a workaround: He just didn’t charge anyone with the crime.

Meanwhile, in Georgia, the Gwinnett County solicitor vowed not to punish anyone for the crime of distributing food or water to voters in line. Tampa’s chief prosecutor says a law that allows law enforcement to detain protesters until their court date is “an assault on our democracy.” And a district attorney in Douglas County, Kansas, promised not to enforce a new state law that makes it harder for nonpartisan groups and neighbors and candidates to collect and return absentee ballots for voters.

Progressive prosecutors around the country are increasingly declaring they just won’t enforce some GOP-backed state laws, a strategy at work in response to some of the most controversial new changes in recent years — near-total abortion bans, voting restrictions, limits on certain protest activity, laws aimed at LGBTQ people, and restrictions on mask requirements.

This is good news.

But we need more people with cajones instead of a few….people that will stand-up for the rights of all Americans not just the few.

This will continue to be a problem as long as the voter worried about issues that have nothing to do with a safe and secure and just society.

We are the solution.
