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.
    As Texas should have.

    It's not racist NOT to buy into the False Narratives of the Democrat party and at least there are still parts of the US that have fought off the innate corruption of the Democrat policies.

    No, asking for a ID is not a violation of anyone's Civil liberties, and forcing Southern States to follow laws that were put into effect when Racist Democrats ran local Governments is an overreach of the Federal Government.

    It's about time.

    I find your statements concerning. The southern states are trying their hardest to make it harder for the minorities to vote, extra hassle, no early morning voting(when the most minority voting is) etc.. And I have no clue how supposed "democratic party corruption" has anything to do with what we are talking about. I also have no clue what you are trying to say about racist democrats either. Top be honest, I think your talking gibberish because the only reason you like this ruling because it will let republicans stay in power in the south a little longer. That's probably why Texas moved first, with all the Latinos there, its only a matter of time before it goes Purple. If we are going to imagine that the South's recent actions have nothing to do with racism, at the VERY LEAST it shows a devious intent to influence elections.

    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.

    From the Plantation, to the Housing Projects.
    Of course, this didn't address what I said at all. I know that you would much prefer to discuss what you WISH I had been talking about... doing so tends to be far easier for people who post like right wing hacks like you. And of course the talking points of current Democrats being racist is just some idiotic sound byte fostered by conservatives who don't understand history or reality.

    I find your statements to be filled with misinformation, dishonesty and false narratives

    It's CONCERNING that so many people have so willingly bought into the false narratives of the Democrat Party


    That somehow having to show an ID is some how comparable to a poll tax, or that it stops minorities from going to the polls.

    It's just another Democrat Construct, a lie .

    You contradicted my statements but offered no data to back up your'e assertions.

    That's pretty week.

    Explain specifically how I was wrong.

    Your statements are irrelevant since you did not address what I said. You made a straw man which is illogical and weak.

    You so " courtesy " called me a right wing hack and more than implied I kniw nothing about History.

    I love history. Since I was a kid I've read incessantly about everything from the Revolutionary war to WW2.

    So again, what exactly was innacurate about my post " historically"
    ?

    Historically not so, actually. As George Wallace's poll numbers declined in the waning days of the 1968 Presidential election, his votes went to Hubert Humphrey, not Richard Nixon. That's one reason why that election was so close.

    In 68 Wallace won the deep South:


    Wallace won all of Goldwater's states (except South Carolina), as well as Arkansas and one of North Carolina's electoral votes. Nixon picked up Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida, while Democratic nominee Hubert Humphrey's only southern state was Texas.

    PS..301 to 191 is not that close.

    PS..301 to 191 is not that close.
    As is often the case, the popular vote was closer than the electoral tally, and Humphrey came very close in several states that ultimately didn't go his way. As Wallace's poll numbers fell in the last weeks, Humphrey's rose by an equivalent amount.
