    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.

    in some states, it is very difficult to get photo i.d., but the idea itself is good, if it is not enforced capriciously, and that goes for the literacy test, too. a more literate body of voters might actually improve the quality of the scoundrels in politics. it might. one never knows until one tries.

    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.

    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?

    Because the Republicans are SO desperate to win that they will resort to ANY tactic!
    They know their party is dying off, and they are scrambling to retain whatever power they can while their base constituency dies off of old age.

    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.

    I don’t understand why even bother going through the charade of voting. To call it “democracy” might make you feel justified.. but “democracy” it is not. A sport.. perhaps, where the team that can outflank.. out manipulate.. out smear the other team.. wins.

    @skipcarlsen

    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.”
