    As Justice Ginsburg said in her dissent, the fact that the umbrella’s keeping you dry doesn’t mean it’s stopped raining and you can throw away the umbrella.

    No need to stop people from voting.

    Fight in court to overturn every Proposition that passes
    Have lousy candidates
    Have ads that make the other guy seem worse that Hitler
    Special interests owning the politicians
    Endless campaign season
    Once in office, all they care about is getting re-elected
    Never get anything accomplished.

    No need to stop people from voting, just make them not want to bother.

    And yet, isn’t it a shame to inhibit those who actually do care, who actually think that voting is a responsibility as well as a right? And since all evidence shows that only a particular segment of society is interfered with, isn’t it a shame that that segment does not get the chance to exercise their right and responsibility as fully as the rest of us?

    Wish the VRA had made it illegal for the Black Panthers to stand outside polling places brandishing weapons. But since that happened in a state not included in the VRA it doesn’t count right? It was also great the the VRA confined racism to only those few states. Guess according to those who wrote the law racism didn’t exist anywhere else. The VRA is outdated because anyone anywhere can file a legal complaint if they feel their right to vote was impeded. It’s not the 1950’s anymore. Try to accept the fact that every white person you meet isn’t running around at night wearing a hood and burning a cross.

    This isn’t 1965, VRA wasn’t gutted, Blacks actually vote at a higher rate than non-Hispanic Whites and we have a Black President.

    And now it’s racist to want a voter to present an ID to prove they are who they SAY they are?

    Give it rest already. And frankly, anyone who can’t manage to take the TRIVIAL steps required to register and vote probably shouldn’t be voting in the first place.

    Wow. Look at all this absence of arrogant White privilege statements here in the comments. Racism must be over and done with. What a relief.

    Is was a sad day for that to be voted down. So the 4-5 hour long lines or longer aren’t part of a voter supperesion movement. Shaking my head.

    I lived in Alabama in the early 60’s. On the ballet, one candidate’s name featured a crowing white rooster to show illiterate whites whom to vote for. That was then, and now I live in Florida again, which has had a voter ID law for ages. We seem to have adjusted. However, I recall that I live in a ridiculously gerrymandered district, which hops across Tampa Bay from one county to another so that the “right folks” can make up the constituency. (It was this way last time I checked.) Racism is alive and well.

    If you don’t examine the candidates and propositions, I encourage you not to vote. Do not “get out the vote”. Democracy requires a firm base of informed voters. Many/most(?) college students probably should not vote at all.

    Ahh back to the ‘good old days’ when an 18 year old could die for their country but not vote for their leaders….. very fair, who would ever complain about that?

    In fairness, it takes lots less intelligence (and maturity) to die than to vote in a reasonable fashion. People much more endowed with the necessary qualities than the standard 18-year old sometimes fail the test miserably. On average so does the average 18-year old

    Also in fairness, many young people actually have some grasp of the issues precisely because they are young and not yet jaded or indifferent – and because they’ve just gone through school, where they are taught in social studies/civics/history classes about government and the political system.

    And don’t even think about trying to stop the democrats from chartering busses to go around rounding up voters from the projects, the colleges, and the homeless camps, most of whom can’t even read the ballots. The “community organisers” will take care of that. They will show the “voters” a “D” and tell them to vote for whoever has one of those by their name. and, of course, the democrat party makes sure to equip the “organisers” with plenty of “walkin’ around money” for variuos “purposes”.
    We get the politicians we deserve, as long as illiterate, unemployable idiots are allowed to vote.
