    Expand Voting Right ACT Say A.Young!

    Breaking from Newsmax.com

    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.

    In florida they recently stopped sunday voting because that is when most of the non whites vote.So yes the voting rights act needs expanded to ptevent the republican party from making laws to supress democratic voters.

    Why not go for universal voting sufferage?

    Everyone 18 years or older has the right to vote, if they present proper photographic identification, like school Id, state Id, or a drivers license.

    Wonder if he's referring to the the self admitted woman who voted 6 times. Wait, voter fraud doesn't exist and any effort to thwart it is simply voter suppression.

    Most IDs cost money, and poll taxes are unconstitutional.

    If only we had as much concern over electoral fraud, which is rampant, as we do for voter fraud, which shows up about as frequent as the coelacanth does these days, we could reach an accord.

    Why would most non whites vote on Sundays? It's not like they have anything going on during the rest of the week.

    I had to mail my voter registration application in, was the stamp, paper, and ink a poll tax?
