    I don't know if it is necessarily rampant but how would you go about proving it if you're not even allowed to check ID?

    I feel comfortable with the AMERICAN system of government, where US citizens are not deprived of voting.

    And, again, we have a system of checks and balances. Don't like SCOTUS? Then ask Congress to impeach SCOTUS members.

    Didn't state that the State should or would do that, except that it would be the only route to do so because even though the Supreme Court indicated that they can request additional State specific requirements to the federal commission, its not a valid route as the commission hasn't had a member since 2011, and the President hasn't appointed anyone to the post either.

    That round of red-tape sounds very Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy-esque.

    Couldn't possibly be because the House has continually blocked Presidential appointments at the highest rate in history.

    They've certainly allowed the 4th, 6th and 10th Amendments to be ignored. They seem to be moving away from the Constitution, which is what an 'activist' Presidency would prefer.

    Consider a partisan agenda and it starts to make sense.

    Think "what decisions can we make that will inflame conservative voters".

    Rather tough to block something that hasn't happened. Doubly so since the President hasn't put any of the 4 positions forward, nor can the House do anything about it, as its the Senate that confirms those choices.
