    If the leftwing factions split much like the GOP factions have, that might be their saving grace but I hardly see that happening.
    The Democratic Party has never done that.

    "The actual size and the origin of the illegal immigrant population in the United States is uncertain and difficult to ascertain because of difficulty in accurately counting individuals in this population. National surveys, administrative data and other sources of information provide inaccurate measures of the size of the illegal immigrant population and current estimates based on these data indicate that the current population may range from 7 million to 20 million."

    So somewhere between 7 and 20 million illegals just got the vote, wonderful.

    The pro-decision folks' heads will explode when they find out Rush Limbaugh agrees with them.

    Our Constitution gives Congress the sole authority to decide the rules for Federal elections.

    Well done, Supremes.

    Article is here.
    They had no damn legal premise to even vote on such a law.... What they did was basically vote their opinion.

    This ruling only shows the SCOTUS supports voter fraud and that they know the democratic party would NOT survive without voter fraud.

    This has now set precedent for carding individuals who want to buy tobacco or liquor - it also sets precedence for individuals to refuse to show their ID to cops....

    Wrong - but a common misinterpretation of the Court's ruling. The Arizona law required a specific document to prove identity. This is why the Court said basically "rewrite the law to allow other forms of ID and then submit the new law for judgement"

    Congress writes/passes legislation that cannot contradict previous passed legislation without repeal of that said legislation.

    Using the same logic being used in this decision gay marriage should be illegal.

    Nope. The 14th amendment.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    WRONG Che

    This law requires NO form of ID..... So anyone could register multiple times and vote multiple times -- Just the way you socialists and democrats want it.... To make it worse voter fraud has just be endorsed by the federal government.

    The SCOTUS doesn't rule on laws - they rule on personal politics and it is apparent that the SCOTUS wants an authoritarian or totalitarian government. They obviously believe in the idea of a democratic nanny state - either that or they're too Goddamn stupid to realize the result of their outcome which will be epic voter fraud that benefits the left.

    I do believe most on the left would be quite happy with voting districts being laid out to ensure equal representation - that is the same number of voters in each district. Probably best done by computers.
