I would be honored to be imprisoned in order to protect texans right to vote. This is not a game for a lot of us in the minority community. This is life and death if we are silenced. If we cannot can no longer express our opinion have our right to vote We were invisible to the rest of society. We're invisible to the government. They can firmly ignore us and it just treat us like dirt as they want to do. I guess technically. I should point out that you would not be imprisoned but sent back to the house floor unless you characterize that as imprisonment and i guess that's a statement that's not.
