Hey now. Come on, folks. It is about time you all come around to Rye's way of thinking because only a racist homophobe bigot big meanie poopooheads would be aganst this.

Dead people have every right to vote! It is the newest frontier in identity politics, and they have been ignored for way too long!

“Politics is a zero sum game”

....and Rye is a zero brain dumb.

All he knows in this world is that he is required to support rule by Democrat regimes no matter what it takes.

Taken literally it's really a pretty shocking and sadly cynical view for the gop.

Consider what a Reagnite would have thought
The players in a zero sum game must start with all the resources they are ever going to have. The supply of resources can't change, it cannot grow or shrink, and there can be no external intervention.
What Is a Zero Sum Game and Why Is It Important in 2019? - TheStreet

That is an anathema to the views of Goldwater and Reagan. It is literally what the supply siders accused the democrats like Ted Kennedy of. And it has nothing to do specifically with Trump or Trumpism, they are an example of that criticism. IF the gop has consigned itself to policies that cannot attract 51% in a given geographical area and is solely dependent upon changing the voting population and the effects of the EC and allocation of senators by state, the Founders view of a competitive market for ideas is ..... warped at best.

I will be shocked if Roberts doesn't uphold the law though.

From the OP link:

The nearly 800-page measure would also establish a national system of public financing of campaigns, which Democrats have long urged as a way to reduce the power of wealthy interests. And it would all but eliminate partisan gerrymandering of congressional districts by mandating that states move to independent redistricting commissions such as the one California voters created in 2008.

Agree in principle. Neither party should be able to gerrymander.

To an extent not seen in a century, America's two major parties have gone to battle over the rules that govern voting — an intensifying fight that threatens to dominate and embitter the country's politics.

Skirmishes along the battle line flared repeatedly this week:

At the Supreme Court, Republican and Democratic lawyers clashed over part of the landmark Voting Rights Act. A court ruling that would broadly define the reach of that law "puts us at a competitive disadvantage relative to Democrats," attorney Michael Carvin, who represented the Arizona Republican Party, bluntly told the justices.

"Politics is a zero-sum game," he said.


Democracy in America is under attack by the Republican Party, a Party which seeks to prevent legal citizens from voting. This effort to suppress the vote of minority citizens - people of color, people of non Western European ancestry and Felons who have already completed their sentence* will be denied the right to express their support for candidates who are empathetic to their needs.

It's clear that the Republican Party has become a party opposed to civil rights and equal opportunities for minorities'; a party which grants the wealth of our nation to the few, and denies to the middleclass, the working poor, the destitute, aged, infirm and women equal justice and an equal share of the GDP; those whose labor produces our nation's wealth.
To all people who want their children taught. As far as that goes. Stay away from deep blue areas if equity advances even more from equality. Use sense when you move into new areas. The schools mean more then neighborhood. It may mean a difference in school district. Most of the blue areas that already have equity in their leadership and not equality have morons and inept men and women in charge. they may have education themselves. But they are not the best and base everything on race. You want your children educated or propagandized?

We can't have folks participating in Democracy here in our Democracy.

Unconstitutional! We need to continue having 1 ballot box in black cities, and 15 in Hollywood.

At best it's hyperbole. I fear the gop has given up trying to be the majority party though. And while its social divisiveness has created that, I think it's overall message is a winner.

You may be right on them giving up. They're ineffective anyway.

It's clear that you haven't a single, solitary shred of self-awareness....And probably never have.
What else is clear, oddball, is that you are unable or unwilling to post anything substantive, thoughtful or thought provoking in response to the OP. Now, go away or try to prove the GOP is a party of The BIG TENT, a talking point the GOP claimed they made years ago and was found ludicrous then and even more today.

It's completely substantive....You're so utterly lacking in introspection and self-awareness that you accuse others of doing exactly the things that you do, with your every neurotic and sociopathic post.

I suggest professional help....Seriously.

Unconstitutional as hell.

Election rules are the exclusive provence of the states.View attachment 464080
Dems are desperate to RIG elections they have lost the support of the American people. That's why they are also flooding OUR country with millions of illegals and planning to purchase their votes with OUR tax money. In a righteous world Dems would be in prison for their traitorous crimes.
