    That's a cop-out. I'm sure the dude doesn't hate America, just what certain idiots do in her name.

    And your misrepresentation of my positions on guns has what to do with this thread and your inability to give answers to what you are asked here?

    If he doesn't hate America he hates honest objective insight and common sense.

    What part of the voting act is this person trying to overturn? Are they trying to prevent Blacks from voting? If so please supply the evidence.

    Trying to take federal oversight out of states with a history of denying Blacks the right to vote is pretty darned blatant. Now, I suspect that conservatives will argue that states like Mississippi and Alabama would never ever do anything to deny Blacks to the right to vote. Which, of course, doesn't pass the smell test.

    Didn't you say the same thing about Strom Thurmund leaving the Democratic Party?

    Pwnd ya pretty bad on that one too, IIRC.

    Well, here ya go again:
    Rep. Todd Akin, the GOP’s candidate for U.S. Senate in Missouri, suggested in an interview that it was time to “look at or overturn” the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965...

    The Voting Rights Act of 1965 prohibits the states from implementing voting procedures that “discriminate on the basis of race, color or membership in a language minority group.” The law built on the Civil Rights Act of 1964 which “prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, and national origin in programs and activities receiving federal financial assistance.”
    You're pretty much blind to racism. Aren't ya? Even when it's staring you right in the face.

    So there is nothing racist involved here then. Only the possibility that these States the Democrats once controlled may turn racist once more.

    I really doubt that's going to happen.

    You did see where David Duke couldn't win an election as a Democrat but grabbed himself a House Seat as a Republican. Right?
