    Yeah, democrats believe blacks are inferior, which is why the democratic party nominated a black man as POTUS and elects blacks to elected office all across the country. Give me a break.

    Not officially since Robert Byrd died, but he always had his sympathizers within the party.
    Why do you think blacks so overwhelmingly vote for the democratic party, that is according to you so full of racists?

Costly and time consuming registration of every firearm is just an "obligation" of being a citizen, and obviously you must support such a program!

    You can't believe that.
    Gun ownership is explicitly protected by the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution. That same Constitution leaves elections to the states.

    States regulate firearms, but those regulations are restricted by the Constitution. Voting isn't any different. It's clear that voting is a Constitutional RIGHT protected by the 14th, 15th, 19th, 24th and 26th amendments, and the Constitution gives the Feds the explicit authority to enforce those rights.

    14th Amendment "the right to vote."
    15th Amendment "[t]he right of citizens of the United States to vote"
    19th Amendment "The right of citizens of the United States to vote"
    24th Amendment "The right of citizens of the United States to vote"
    26th Amendment "The right of citizens of the United States, who are eighteen years of age or older, to vote"

    Why would you, the poster Conservative, say that I am very proud of the false-equivalency lies you have spewed forth here ?

    It has to do with CONTROL, one way or the other.

    Slavery is little different from total Government dependence and institutionalized poverty.

    Places like Cabrini Green, Robert Taylor Homes and Magnolia Place in New Orleans weren't born out of Conservative principles.

    The SC court disagrees with you.

    Agreed, but the administration of elections is left to the states. As long as state laws pass US Constitutional muster they are good to go.

    The SC has ruled voting isn't a right? I'm shocked. Please point me to that groundbreaking case!

    Yes, but the 2nd Amendment is much more prescriptively specific than are references to the right to vote. Regardless, the state ID laws that cause you such pain seem to have passed the test.

    The key is winning.

    Harry Reid's "encouragement of Obama was unequivocal. He was wowed by Obama's oratorical gifts and believed that the country was ready to embrace a black presidential candidate, especially one such as Obama -- a "light-skinned" African American "with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one," as he said privately. Reid was convinced, in fact, that Obama's race would help him more than hurt him in a bid for the Democratic nomination". - See more at: Reid Once Called Obama Light-skinned With 'No Negro Dialect', Media Mostly Mum

    Joe Biden - "I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy," Biden said. "I mean, that's a storybook, man."
