    O.K., I'll take a stab at it ... Too many colored folk in the country now and it ain't gonna get better?

    I'm not mad at conservatives. Inconsistency makes me mad. What I want is for constitutionally-minded Conservatives to be offended by this because there are no legal grounds for discarding a law for being outmoded by social reality.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    maybe it has something also to do with voter I.D. which was a topic of discussion about this court decision.

    I haven't had time to read the opinions yet, what are your specific objections to the ruling and why?

    well you know the courts have revisited issues many times, and overturned them.

    why should they be mad, constitutionalists, libertarians, and some conservatives, are for state powers, being return to them.

    this case says that a government bureaucrat( unelected official) does not get to decide what a states voting guidelines are.

    because those you have mentioned broke the law--now Texas will continue their 27-9 gerry-mandered House map and ensure a Republican minority will be in power--true fascism--the South has risen again throught the SCOTUS CORRUPTUS and ensures the division in this Country will accelerate

    one of the problems with the law is that it is not uniform, it only directed at a few southern states, and then only a few counties in those states, under constitutional law, all laws have to apply equally to every state, you cant single people or states out.

    state powers such as Indiana polluting Lake Michigan at 20 times the MERCURY level--these are states' wrongs not states' rights
