    @dquared,
    it wasn’t an attempt, it was a chunk. I hope it was a ‘last gasp’ like California’s prop 8 (which we will find out today if that was a ‘last gasp’.

    I wish the Conservatives/Republicans would stay under their rock where its warm and dark and they can feel safe. Keep them away from reality. They can’t handle it. Their reality is frightening.

    The Voting Rights Act has been in place for 50 years. If it has not suceeded after that amount of time, then it is a failure and should be abolished. If it has suceeded, then it should no longer be required.

    The Roberts Court is taking over the functions of Congress. That’s what’s unconstitutional.

    the Reality is that Republicans are generally racist…yes. No-one is disputing that; they also tend to be misogynous and homophobic. Why break a losing streak?

    A literacy test? Then you just failed it… English takes a capital "e ". So glad to know you won’t be voting in the next election… because you have such integrity that you will decline so as to follow your own ideology.

    Are you lefties really worried that you can’t get enough people to go out and vote?
    .
    With more and more people on public assistance, that’s DNC votes bought and paid for!
    .
    Try being a libertarian where we can’t lie or buy votes.

    This misses the point. It’s “just a flesh wound”. The law still stands. It’s now just up to Congress to determine what parts of the country might likely practice voter suppression based on race. I’m sure they will take care of that responsibility, as soon as they finish with their fixing of the economy, ensuring the end of banking shenanigans that can tank the economy in the future, and….oh, that laser-like focus on creating jobs.

    I’m sure it will be done by the end of the week.

    I’m wondering if many of the commenters here actually understand the decision. The Court did not say that Congress could not impose federal oversight where voting rights are at risk, as long as the data they use is contemporary. When Congress extended the Voting Rights Act in 2006, they did so using data that was nearly 40 years old. Imagine in your personal life, being judged on what you did more than 40 years ago. That’s what they invalidated. BTW, the Congress had plenty of notice that this was problematic, based on the Northwest Austin Municipal Utility District Number One VS Holder decision in 2009.

    You forgot to capitalize the i. Guess you can’t be allowed to vote.

    The Republican stacked courts, chipping away at our rights.

    why does davefrompaterson want other “nationalities” voting in our elections?

    “Only Reality is Reality.”
    .
    I would agree with that, except for the obvious fact that YOU are attempting to define what is real.
    There is “reality,” and there is the conservative, narrow focused and outrageously biased view of “reality,” which isn’t “reality” at all.
