    I thought it was equal representation - NOT equal representation based on race, creed or political affiliation. It seems politicians enjoy redrawing district lines based on those ideas - especially race.

    It seems democrats continually attempting to redraw district lines to even out white vs minority and where I'm from that translates into the ghetto vs middle class suburbia - and they're only doing this in an attempt to redistribute wealth....

    The SCOTUS doesn't value the Tenth Amendment.

    The Federal government was actually using discriminatory legislation against 6 southern states, Virgina, and Alaska. I thought as a nation we were against discrimination based on race, the SCOTUS action enforces that idea.

    But now most Southern states are Republican with the Jim Crowe Democrats moving into Democrat vote selling in the Northern States.

    I don't think there is anything to worry about

    Re: US Supreme Court strikes down voting rights act clause

    I am very disappointed at the Supreme Court's ruling. They are striking down the VRA, saying that racial discrimination in voting is no longer a problem, did it ever occur to them that maybe the VRA had something to do with that? That's like saying " We haven't had any 8 year olds get sucked into machinery in decades, So lets get rid of child labor laws!" or getting rid of your umbrella simply because the rain is no longer getting you wet. In my opinion, the VRA ruling shows that some Supreme Court members have some powerful blinders on. Already, states such as Texas, Alabama, Mississippi, and South Carolina are moving to suppress the minority vote. Texas moved to implement as voter ID law that the DoJ had not allowed them to implement the year before TWO HOURS after the ruling was announced. So much for having moved on.

    Wrong...again, your nonsense is baseless.

    A democrat by any other name is still a Democrat. The false narrative of Republicans being racist is just another tactic by the party that's known for enabling generational dependence so they can buy a vote.

    Cabrini Green, Robert Taylor Homes, Queens-bridge, Jordan Downs, etc, the list goes on.

    Under Obama's abject incompetence more people have become dependent on the Government than in the last 80 years.

    So you really have no idea what your'e talking about. To pass policies that enable generational dependence in crime ridden neighborhoods is insidiously evil. It's the Democrat way.
