    It's a good ruling if it helps increase state sovereignty.

    I just hope that this isn't yet another example of racists trying to usurp state sovereignty arguments to suit their purposes. I'd love it if now that this law is gone, absolutely no racist bull**** follows. If that happens, I'll be very happy. If racist bull**** ensues, though, it'll be yet another instance of racists undermining the state's rights platform with their ignorant bull****.

    Not really.

    It basically only changes who gets to do the gerrymandering. There will still be plenty of "activist" judges that will entertain any lame excuse to "review" the effect of any district boundary or voting conditions law change on minority voters - so it just changes the tactics to be used to defeat/delay state law. Look how many people went nuts over demanding presentation of a state issued, photo ID to vote yet see those same ID requirements as "absolutely essential" for national security at the airports, to prevent "bad" folks from getting guns/ammo or young folks from getting alcohol/tobacco.

    Can't these Justices forget "liberal" or "conservative" allegiances and think of the country as a whole? Vote on the MERITS of each issue and stop voting personal view-points?

    I know it seems a lot to ask but GEEZ it would do this nation some good.
    I feel that they have far too much power with minimal accountability. Judges are appointed on ideology and it's very rare to see them deviate from their ideology when it comes to law. In my opinion this isn't justice, this is legislating from the bench.

    It sounds more like you are anxious for more discriminatory voting laws. Is that the basis for "Federalism"?

    Horrible ruling. All the recent attempts to suppress voters show why. Kennedy and Scalia need to retire. Ginsburg is a badass. This country is a mess.

    I don't have a problem with showing ID to vote, but I do have a problem with the fact that many of the people who are promoting such laws are doing so in order to prevent minorities from voting (under the guise of preventing voter fraud, which they themselves would gleefully engage in if it helped their cause).

    If that minority is illegal aliens or bus loads of "professional" voters then that should be stopped. The nonsense that you must first prove voter fraud is "rampant" before you can "justify" its prevention is insane. Banks/stores don't need to be robbed first to know that security is important.

    Banks are private businesses. I don't particularly care what they chose to do. I care about laws which are designed to make it more difficult for opposition to exercise their rights.

    On the opposite side of the coin, though, you have people who support ID's for voting, but oppose ID's for getting guns. We know that crimes with guns are rampant. That's not merely paranoia, it's proven fact. If the people who oppose ID's for getting guns support ID's for voting, I'm naturally skeptical of the altruism in their claims of potential voter fraud. They don't seem to give a **** about criminals getting guns, why would they suddenly care about them voting? I guarantee the individual gun can do more damage than an individual with a vote can.
