Yet another rancid vote (see article pasted below) by the Supreme Court unconscionables. It is a SUPREME insult. Liberals, progressives and others, you think because you are mad at the president for some policies that if you not show up to vote in the midterms on November, 4, 2014 you will be sending a message? The ONLY message you will send is a message to yourselves.

Whatever policies the Court has allowed to, in activist Court fashion, wholly reactionarily change a significantly still racist nation, it will allow us to return to a white supremist age. The New Jim Crow age has begun and will be on steroids soon if Republicans are allowed power. Gargantuan money, sanctioned by the Republican-appointed extremist five, is now, more than ever before, allowed to rule politics in this country.

Their many decisions including Citizen's United, McCutcheon, and the striking down of the important Section 4 of the 1965 Civil Rights Act ensures race discrimination and rule by the rich into the 21st century. The Texas decision supporting voter suppression not only allows the exclusion of minorities from participation in the fundamental right from which all other democratic equal rights flow -- the right to vote -- they also by their other decisions ensure oligarchic rule by the 1% wealthiest widening the Grand Canyon size class disparity and the distribution of wealth in this nation.

THIS is what Republicans are about. They are about returning to a white supremist nation, and they use Uncle Tom Clarence, the know nothing should never be sitting on the Court, Thomas to side with the race baiters to ultimately return to that age. Read the summary of how they just voted on the Texas decision and weep. Then weep some more if Democrats lose the Senate.


Supreme Court: Texas Can Use Voter ID Law 

WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court is allowing Texas to use its controversial new voter identification law for the November election. A majority of the nation's highest court on Saturday rejected an emergency request from the Justice Department and civil rights groups to prohibit the state from requiring voters to produce certain forms of photo identification in order to cast ballots. The Supreme Court's order was unsigned, but three justices dissented.
The law was struck down by a federal judge last week, but a federal appeals court had put that ruling on hold. Early voting in Texas begins Monday. The judge found that roughly 600,000 voters, many of them black or Latino, could be turned away at the polls because they lack acceptable identification.
