    Yes, well many people find Republican views on equal rights offensive.

    Section 5 of the Voing Rights Act was renewed in 2006 for 25 years. (Bush signed it)
    Since we needed to use the act in the last election, I think they should let it stand until it expires.
    BTW the vote was 99 to 0 and 390 to 33 to renew.

    If you actually believe that, you are an idiot. Danziger served honorably in the Armed Forces in Vietnam. He was awarded the Bronze Star and Air Medal in 1970.

    The right is incapable of recognizing equality. They went to disenfranchise anyone that disagrees with them.

    I’m willing to listen to arguments that the VRA is no longer necessary. The arguments pro and con were presented to Congress, and both houses of Congress voted overwhelmingly to continue the act. Why should the Supreme Court go against the will of the legislature?
    When the Act was passed in 1965 it was clearly necessary. People had been killed for trying to vote. That, to my mind, counts as the ultimate voter suppression. Is there anyone willing to say that the VRA wasn’t justifiable in 1965? Speak up, now.

    us constitution once said that black people count as 3/5 a person. the people that say that it is a new south. it is true in some places. but, mississippi finally got around to ratifying the 13th amendment after 150 years and 6 months after lincoln the movie debut.

    Thank God the Republican Party freed the slaves or else Democrats would still have their slaves. In some ways tho, they still do.

    Even if I was to accept your previous statement, that was some 50 years ago, and those Democrats are now Republicans. The truth of that is simple, just look at the voting in the south. In the 1950’s the south was a Democrat strong hold, and now it is a Republican strong hold. Or is that too logical for your type of thinking?

    No one wants to respond to your statement because most have better sense than me. I’ll try, once again, to educate you.

    The ”Equal Rights Amendment" was a proposed amendment guaranteeing equal rights for women. ERA passed Congress by a large margin, but failed to get ratification from the states. I suspect this is not what you were trying to refer to.

    The Civil Rights Act received support from a majority of Republicans, in what I call “the last decent moment of the GOP.” However those votes were not enough for passage. As I’ve said to you a few times before, a majority of Democrats voted for the Civil Rights Act. Presidents Kennedy & Johnson pushed the Civil Rights Act through a Congress that was mostly uncertain about passing the bill.

    Opposition to the Civil Rights Act came almost exclusively from the South. Only a few Southern Democrats voted in favor, but not one single Southern Republican voted for Civil Rights! Barry Goldwater, considered to be the man who started the conservative movement that brought Ronald Reagan into office, voted against Civil Rights. Again, the majority of Democrats voted in favor. The Republicans did not have a majority in either House of Congress and provided fewer votes in favor than the Democrats did.

    As has been well hashed out here, the Democrats who opposed the Civil Rights Act either repented (Robert Byrd) or switched parties (Jesse Helms, Strom Thurmond).

    The next time you post this lie, I’ll just flag it as I hope anyone else that cares about truth will do.

    I think it can be summed up in a couple of lines:

    One Dollar, One Vote!

    Judge a man, not by the color of his skin, but the content of his investment portfolio.

    I think you don’t know what you’re talking about, the constitution doesn’t say anything about blacks. There were LAWS that said blacks were to count as 3/5 but not the constitution.

    Like McGovern, he put his life where his beliefs are…and his wonderful talent, too. A great illustrator AND patriot.
