    Section 5 made gerrymandering legal. You're ok with that?

    When did I ever say I was OK with gerrymandering?

    EDIT: Also, the gerrymandering is still going on, as I pointed out with the Think Progress article I posted.

    Re: US Supreme Court strikes down voting rights act clause

    So the SCOTUS reviewed a case which brought a challenge to portions of the 1964 voting rights act.
    They ruled that the additional oversight place on the mostly democrat controlled southern states
    were no longer necessary.
    Did the SCOTUS have the right to so rule?

    Section. 2.

    The judicial Power shall extend to all Cases, in Law and Equity, arising under this Constitution, the Laws of the United States, and Treaties made, or which shall be made, under their Authority;--to all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls;--to all Cases of admiralty and maritime Jurisdiction;--to Controversies to which the United States shall be a Party;--to Controversies between two or more States;-- between a State and Citizens of another State,--between Citizens of different States,--between Citizens of the same State claiming Lands under Grants of different States, and between a State, or the Citizens thereof, and foreign States, Citizens or Subjects.

    Yep kinda sounds like!
    So some new states will have voter ID laws.
    Have the existing Voter ID laws in Blue states disenfranchised anyone?
    State Legislators are tasked with drawing congressional districts,
    they do their best to represent their constituents.
    As demographics change so will the districts.

    You obviously are a supporter of Section 5, ergo you support racial gerrymandering.

    No, I have clearly showed that I am against racial gerrymandering, as I posted the Think Progress article, which shows that racial gerrymandering was occurring and I displayed my dismay.

    Did you read my post? Apparently not ... but since I have your attention (until some shiny object distracts you), how do you feel about gay marriage? The Sup. Ct. just struck down DOMA (although states can still do what they want) and gays in CA can now get married again after the court said those who brought the case had no standing ... How do you feel about that, and please leave race out of it ...

    I've already stated them -- the grounds upon which the decision was made.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

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

    If a judge can throw out a law because their opinion is that it is no longer relevant, then any law can be thrown out because a judge thinks it is no longer relevant. If any law can be thrown out because a judge thinks it is no longer relevant, the same is true of the Constitution.

    If the Act had been ruled unConstitutional then at least it would've been tossed for reasons it is within the Court's jurisdiction to decide.

    Fenton, if you want dumb, look in the mirror my friend ...
    Proof please ? I mean Liberals Lie, thats a given so I'm going to need you to quantify that statement.

    And I promise, I guarantee I am levels above you in intelligence.

    I'll match brain pans with you or any other of the sub-species that inhabit the failed ideology of Liberalsim any time you want.

    A person who doesn't even posses the fundamental reasoning capabillities to know when theyr'e being manipulated or lied to has no business critiquing my intelligence.

    A person who is so susceptable to plattitudes and talking points, who follows blindly a agenda because they lack the IQ to be objective has no business critiquing my intelligence.

    So next time you feel superior based on absolutely nothing and want to insult another poster directly, how about posting something intelligent to go along with it.

    Instead of a absolutley inaccurate opinion.
