Yeah, sure they are. They may look at voting but rights isn't likely to be part of their agenda. We are either a nation which, "...hold these truths self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among theses are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness" or we are not. Voting for the government most likely to support a persons safety and liberty is a right, but does Chief Justice Roberts? Congress compiled a 15,000-page record and documented hundreds of instances of apparent voting discrimination in the states covered by the law dating to 1982, the last time it had been extended. Among the incidents in the congressional record: In 1998, Webster County, Ga., tried to reduce the black population in several school board districts after citizens elected a majority-black school board for the first time. In 2001, Kilmichael, Miss., canceled an election when a large number of African-American candidates sought local office following 2000 census results that showed blacks had become the majority in the city. In 2004, Waller County, Texas, sought to limit early voting near a historically black college and threatened to prosecute students for illegal voting after two black students said they would run for office. But in 2009, Roberts indicated the court was troubled about the ongoing need for a law in the face of dramatically improved conditions, including increased minority voter registration and turnout rates. Roberts attributed part of the change to the law itself. "Past success alone, however, is not adequate justification to retain the preclearance requirements," he said.

News It begins: "Three years ago, the Supreme Court warned there could be constitutional problems with a landmark civil rights law that has opened voting booths to millions of African-Americans. Now, opponents of a key part of the Voting Rights Act are asking the high court to finish off that provision. "The basic question is whether state and local governments that once boasted of their racial discrimination still can be forced in the 21st century to get federal permission before making changes in the way they hold elections. "Some of the governments covered most of them are in the South argue they have turned away from racial discrimination over the years. But Congress and lower courts that have looked at recent challenges to the law concluded that a history of discrimination and more recent efforts to harm minority voters justify continuing federal oversight." It obvious the racists who post on this message board are also anti democratic and many seek an autocratic if not theocratic form of government. Let's hope they remain a minority on the fringe of political thought in our nation and let us further hope that the monied interests who are flooding this campaign do not prevail.
