    I’m sure we can expect Texas, Mississippi, and Alabama to play fair. Only enlightened, compassionate, and intelligent individuals run the affairs of those states nowadays.

    Literacy tests? How to measure literacy? One man’s literacy is another man’s ignorance.
    i.e., literal interpretation of a religion’s holy book? Literal interpretation of The Constitution (that’s what those folks in the robes are supposed to do – and look how often they agree)?
    Too dangerous…

    Hello Great Ack, I found this link for those who wish to see what kind of literacy tests were provided. I don’t know the website, but it gets the point across.

    Two hours after SCOTUS overturned voting rights, Texas passed laws that their own figures state will make it difficult for over 800k Latinos, legal residents, to vote. Redistricting cause 8 blacks to lose their seats but NO whites lost their seats office.
    I look forward to seeing how these issues proceed through the courts.

    A “Civil Society” should always err on the side of individual freedoms and access to voting. These efforts of suppression sound more like the stories we hear from the Middle East and Eastern Europe.
    Respectfully,

    No, it isn’t. These states typically charge for ID, reduce availability for voting in more Democratic districts, and require people to bring extensive evidence to get their ID — and exclude the easier forms of evidence, like military ID. Make no mistake: this is a deliberate attempt to exclude LEGITIMATE CITIZENS from using their vote. Period.
    Research indicates quite clearly that the “voter fraud” claim is utter nonsense — it is at best trivial. So why make it harder for millions of legitimate voters to stop a handful?

    Interesting how there is a paucity of conservative posts (aside from straw man arguments or irrelevant hate spews) when the facts of Republican governance are irrefutable.

    I can’t see how the actions of this supreme court are anything but biased. It appears to me that it is basically in the pockets of the rich and powerful (who strike me as being mostly Republican.)
    I thought discriminating was against the law, but the supreme court is doing exactly that. How is it NOT discrimination when they say that SOME citizens can vote, but others cannot?
    And how is it NOT discrimination when they say that
    SOME citizens can marry, but others cannot?
    Giving those powers to the states guarantees that
    many citizens will NOT b e allowed to vote or marry.
    I’m disillusioned by this country. I believe that the supreme court should be disbanded. All they ever do is create problems and ensure there will always enough work for all the lawyers.

    “Now every stinking southern state of racist southerners…”
    -
    Certainly you don’t think that every citizen of southern states is a racist, or that states outside of Dixie are devoid of racists.

    From the US Constitution, Amendment XVI, Section 1: No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States
    -
    This gives the federal government the authority to stop states from infringing on the voting rights of it’s residents. It’s “guaranteed by the Constitution.”

    Tigger, have you ever heard about time? And change? Yes, back in the 1850s, the Republicans were better on race than the Democrats. We get that. Are they now? Different question, just maybe a different answer. It’s very hard to take you seriously when you seem to be incapable of such an elementary observation — that times change.

    Excellent reply.

    goweeder, you are so right! That discrimination is being practiced in our own court system is very bad. why can some citizens vote and others have had it nearly impossible to vote, and who can marry whom.
    this is not being the land of the free.
    This is some animals are more worthy than the others. This nation that I used to be proud of has gone steadily downhill, since Reagan.
    Both parties bow down to the men with the money and make sure that those few keep gathering up more and more, leaving the rest with much less.
    the racists, the most of us who were not born gay, people who are afraid and dislike foreigners, those who profit from waging war and don’t care who or how many die, want and have the power to keep others under their thumbs.
    I’m a liberal and proud of it, but I am not proud of democrats or things that have happened in Obama’s term, like re-newing the patriot act, holding people without trial, and the democrats are wrong about the 2nd. amendment, and think most republicans are seeing the world with so very different eyes of mine.
    We don’t have any that with out thinking long and hard, I would even consider to be a proper candidate for president.
