Support of any Bill that infringes on my constitutionally protected rights is punishable under USC › Title 18 › Part I › Chapter 13 › § 241 Conspiracy against rights If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same; They shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section ... may be sentenced to death. Feel free to contact me and I will be more than happy to give you a primer on the United States Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and what the term Freedom means.
