This is a POLITICAL issue before the Supreme Court link here or below. Republicans want it because it will make it more difficult for minorities to vote. If it were the reverse they would be against it. Their transparency is obvious. They SAY it's to ensure fair elections. We KNOW that is BALONEY. It is to make it more difficult for minorities. ie. Democratic voters to vote. Another Republican attempt at stealing an election!
It is obvious another 5/4 decision WILL be handed down by the questioning -- four of the five are "conservative" absolutes and the one so called swing Justice Kennedy by his questioning one can see where it will go -- with his conservative buddies. The Supreme Court has turned into a political Republican hack job. Stare decisis, (Latin translation: the thing already having been decided, Roberts said? Believe that and Republican Supreme Court justices will tell you another joke. This is the most "conservative" activist court EVER! The five "conservative" Supremes today would have voted against Dred Scott IF they had had the chance.
My advice to Democrats EVERYWHERE since this case will go against us. Beat these RepublicRATS at their own game. Do what is ever mandatory in each state to vote and the DEMOCRATIC Party should ENSURE THAT in triplicate in EVERY state. LINE THEM UP AND SIGN THEM UP -- that should be our mantra!
WHY IT IS IMPERATIVE TO VOTE DEMOCRAT BOTH IN THE STATE AND NATIONAL ELECTIONS. WHY IT IS ALSO IMPERATIVE TO VOTE REP. ED MARKEY AS THE NEXT US SENATOR FROM MASSACHUSETTS!!
