I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

Either way, thank you for being so up front and polite.

People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
And again, this was done by George Bush's justice department and a judge appointed by George Bush. Why are you whining about liberals?
Hell, even Scalia and Thomas have ruled on cases like these and find them to be constitutional. Those are some big liberal judges, right?

Such changes may seem radical departures from the electoral systems with which we are most familiar. Indeed, they may be unwanted by the people in the several States who purposely have adopted districting systems in their electoral laws. But nothing in our present understanding of the Voting Rights Act places a principled limit on the authority of federal courts that would prevent them from instituting a system of cumulative voting as a remedy under §2, or even from establishing a more elaborate mechanism for securing proportional representation based on transferable votes.
Election law is there to make sure that everyone has the ability to vote freely everyone's ballot is counted according to the same set of standards - the OUTCOME of the electiuon isn;t its concern in any way shape or form.
