What the judges attempted to do in Texas, and were stopped yesterday by the Supreme Court, will not happen again if Barack Obama is re-elected. Obama will be able to select socialist/communist activist judges, getting at least 1 or 2 judges placed on the Court in the next four years. I guarantee you my fellow Americans, those justices will be so Marxist in ideology that you will not recognize America by 2016. I am simply amazed at the ignorance of those who believe that sitting home on election day or writing in your preferred candidates name to “make your point” is acceptable behavior when so much is riding on this election cycle. I know the top two candidates leading in the polls right now are not as conservative as you are, but damn it, the Senators and Congresspeople we send to DC will be, and we have the Senators and ourselves to stop the Republican President from seating a moderate, remember Harriet Miers?
The simple truth is the Supreme Court has been given ultimate authority over any and every piece of legislation passed anymore. Yes, it is not Constitutional, but it is where we are and so we must be ever vigilant as to how the Court is constructed. It is the last stop for the whims of progressive judges around the Country Progressive Judges Attempting To Redraw CONSERVATIVE Texas Is Disgusting
The San Antonio court issued new maps while it decided the case. The judges reasoned that the state would be unable to hold elections without the temporary maps.
The maps appeared to give Democrats a greater chance of winning seats in the state House and Senate than did the plans approved by those bodies and signed into law by Republican Gov. Rick Perry.
Minorities currently are the majority in 10 of Texas’ 32 congressional districts. The new court-drawn map would have raised that to 13 out of 36 districts, an outcome the judges said better reflected the growth in the state’s Hispanic population.
In the second of two separate court cases in the redistricting fight, a federal court in Washington has refused to approve the Legislature’s redistricting plan without a trial, agreeing with the Justice Department that there was sufficient evidence to question whether it hurt minority representation.
Like other states with a history of racial discrimination, Texas can’t implement new maps or other changes to voting practices without federal approval under the 1965 Voting Rights Act. The state asked a court in Washington to sign off on the maps, but those judges refused. That case is continuing.
I want to get a Court who finally recognizes that America is a fair and free Country and each State, along with its citizens, can decide how to create their districts. The need for the Voting Rights Act 40 years later is obsolete. HUGE GAINS for minorities have successfully eliminated the need for the feds to be involved. Now they stay in order to take away the vote from what little is left of those that don’t think or support minority victimhood. The only kind of voter intimidation and fraud going on today is the actions by the Democrats – flooding illegal votes into elections, thereby stealing every color of the spectrum’s votes in the process. It’s called disenfranchisement and that is the goal of the socialist/Democrat party – to disenfranchise all who might disagree with their agenda.
