    What we allow to vote makes forums like these pointless.
    Prove it by supplying some verification. Or, are you just dreaming?

    All you have to do is look at California's 43rd Congressional District and look at who they keep sending back to Congress every two years, Maxine Waters.

    Is that enough evidence for you ?

    Jesse Jackson Jr. got re-elected in the middle of accusations of stealing campaign funds and disappearing for days on end into seclusion. Marion Berry, Maxine Waters, Chuck Schumer, Barney Frank, Ted Kennedy, Barbara Boxer......

    It's not exactly a research assignment.

    Andrew Young: Expand Voting Rights Act

    The Voting Rights Act has not outlived its usefulness and in fact should be expanded, says former Ambassador Andrew Young, who helped draft it in 1965.

    “You'd think we wouldn’t be having this discussion 50 years later,’’ Young told Steve Malzberg on Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show.’’ “People are making efforts to make it more difficult for citizens to vote at a time when we need more citizens voting.’’

    At issue is a case in front of Supreme Court involving Alabama’s Shelby County, which questions the validity of Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act. That section requires states with a history of racial discrimination to have any changes to their voting laws pre-approved by the Justice Department or federal court.

    The suit claims the section — which now only affects a handful of states — has outlived its usefulness, and there are suggestions the Supreme Court may agree. Young does not.

    “If anything, the incidents of the last election and the voter suppression all across the country to me mean we really need to expand Section 5’s jurisdiction to include Ohio and some of the other states that were left out,’’ Young said.
    Great idea! Make all 50 states have to get preclearance for voting laws. For once, something I can agree with.

    There are a lot of congress people who keep getting elected year after year because they are popular.

    I still see no proof other than they were re elected. So what?

    Five pages into this thread and no one has attacked the source of the article in the OP....strange
    "The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure" - 2006 Senator Obama...leadership failure indeed!
