    The Supreme Court says it's ok to regulate on right, but not another right. That makes sense, too.

    The Fourteenth Amendment states nothing about providing ID to vote -- hence the issue becomes a Tenth Amendment issue.

    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.
    Most Libbos would be cool with Section 5 of The Civik Rights Act beiing abolished?

    Congress sets the registration rules for Federal elections.

    The States set their own registration rules for State and Local elections.

    What's the problem here?

    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....
    Don't know much about the legal reasoning behind the decision, rather obviously. I'll wait and see if you bother to take a few minutes to read up on it.

    It is interesting that righties like Limbaugh and Hans von Spakovsky approved the decision.

    States are more than welcome to require a Justice League membership card in order to vote for State and Local elections.

    They can require membership in the NRA.

    But Congress decides the registration rules for voting for Congress and the President.

    Don't like it? Amend the Constitution.

    We complain about politicians but don't we live under the iron fist of the "Supreme" (?)Court? The word "Supreme" always gave me feelings of uneasiness. Seems to me leaning to either side of our persuasions be it left or right has no place in interpreting our constitution.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    The problem is that SCOTUS is ruling that states cannot exceed Fed guidelines on identity verification without Fed permission. Several justices found that the fed system was little better than an honor system and does not do enough to prevent fraud. They were practically urging states to find a middleground with the fed. I think they also leaned towards more ID for registration rather than voting---but its hard to be sure.

    It sure would be nice to stricter guidelines on fed registration than simply you are who you say you are.

    Same sex. The second part of your statement.

    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.
