    Well, for starters, you could read the article I posted which will answer both your questions rather than ignoring it.

    Texas and other states have started enacting Voter ID laws and that's the primary benefit to this ruling.

    It's a step forward in ensuring the legitimacy of our Democracy.

    Are you sure you wanted to respond to me, or was your post intended to the poster I responded to? If it was me, look at my post again and you'll see that I was being sarcastic and that we agree. For a couple of years now I have been trying to explain to cons that Latinos are not a monolithic group ... in fact, I'd wager that neither Rubio nor Cruz (both Cuban and very conservative) would get more than 30-35% of the Latino vote.

    Sorry....I misread your post.....I agree with you...except I think they would get less than that 30-35%

    No, just summarize it for me and tell me how redistricting will discriminate against me.

    Trust me, Mister, no one is going to keep me out of the polling house. Ok? I'm not even worried about that. Why are you? Afraid black folks might see that there really isn't a buncha white, Republican booger bears out there, trying to put them back in chains afterall? It might mean that the ghettos get busted up by black flight out into the world, after they figure out that things aren't as bad as the Libbos have been saying. That would be a political disaster for the Libbos.

    That too is DUMB.
    no doubt there were blacks who voted for Obama simply because he was black, just as there was an equal, or greater, number, who voted against him because he was black, but have you looked at the percentage of blacks who voted for Kerry and Clinton? You may notice a pattern.


    Fenton, if you want dumb, look in the mirror my friend ...

    Let's don't act as if there aren't judges out there that engage in judicial activism...like that clown that made a special trip to the hospital to read the Boston Bomber his rights.

    The pattern I notice is the fear mongering coming from the Libbos.

    Romney got, what? 28, 29%. Some Latinos would pull the lever for Rubio or Cruz not knowing anything about them, but liking the idea of a Latino president. We have our share of not well informed voters too. That's why I'm willing to go as high as 35%.
