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.
Voting has already been stolen by the commiecrats.
