Antes del documental de @hcapriles sobre la elección de 2013, me gustaría compartir algunas notas que escribí sobre esa elección hace 10 años. ¿Capriles Radonski ganó? ¿Qué pasó? ¿No se auditaron los resultados?
Resumen: Después del #14A HCR exigió un recuento completo de todos los comprobantes de voto y demandó ante el TSJ (el 2 de mayo) que se anulara todo el proceso electoral. La auditoría (septiembre) desestimó las hipótesis de HCR. Sin embargo, la historia es mucho más compleja.
La imprecisión en la petición de la auditoría el comando de HCR al CNE-y la razón que la motivaba- le facilitó la respuesta al organismo comicial. "Es imposible hacer la auditoría que pide Capriles"…

Howdy y'all. I'm here to talk about TX SB8. This is really, really, important, so buckle up, and please read the whole thread.

This is not important because it's about abortion. Even if you believe all abortion should be illegal, you should be opposing this law.

Well, it establishes the ability for a state's legislature to supercede the highest court in the land and the US Constitution, it challenges our right to privacy, and it creates a dangerous precedent for unconstitutional lawmaking.

Let's dig into that a little more
First and foremost, this law does seek to overturn Roe v. Wade, but the part of Roe being challenged is not protection of abortion access, but the right to privacy. In fact if Roe still stood as it did in 1973 TX could make a convincing argument for the legality of most of SB8.

1.) #RedFlagLaws, yes they violate the Constitution, let me show you the ways.

#2A - It never ceases to amaze me how the phrase, “The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed”, simply cannot be understood by such a large swath of the American people.
2.) I understand there are folks who don’t like the #2A , but pretending it’s not there or that it says something it doesn’t is lazy, arrogant, and tyrannical.
3.) #4A - We all have a right to be secure, in both our homes and our property, and against unreasonable search and seizure. But how secure are you when someone can make an unfounded claim and your house is entered and your property seized?

Knowing how many ladies I've run into over the years who have accidentally outed themselves on social media (including myself, years ago) I'm thinking I should probably write up a Working Girls' Guide to Internet Privacy.
Rule #1: Always use a VPN....
Rule #1: Always use a VPN. Always, no matter what. No excuses, because ProtonVPN has a free option that works pretty well., App Store and Google Play Store. Download it now if you don't already have it.
Rule #2: Never use hotel wifi, even with a VPN. Tether your devices via making your own wifi hotspot using your phone. Most prepaid plans have this included already, but watch your data usage if you're on a traditional cellphone plan.
