Who does today's Scotus Decision help more, Obama or Hillary?
The SCOTUS decided who would be our president in 2000, appointing George W. Bush.
Are they again interfering in the elective process to influence who will be the Democratic candidate?
"The US Supreme Court has upheld an Indiana state law requiring people to show photo identification before voting, to guard against fraud.The word is that the decision on Voter ID laws in Indiana, that the right wing neanderthals in the supreme court decided on today was expected to come in June. That's when most SCOTUS decisions are reported.
Many Democrats believe that the voter ID laws represent an attempt by Republicans to suppress turnout among groups - like African-Americans and the poor - which traditionally vote for the Democrats.
And civil rights activists say that there is little history of voter fraud in Indiana."
This decision, an abomination against Democracy and voting rights, directly supports and serves the Republican mission to make it more difficult for or to block poor, minority and youth voters from casting their votes at the polls entirely. This was part of the plan that Gonzales and his tainted Justice Department was working on.
The decision was due ou in June, but, since the Bush and Reagan appointees have been so extra efficient, the ruling allows Indiana to use the law to make it more difficult for Democratic primary voters next week.
Who do you think it will help-- the candidate with reliably voting senior citizens or the candidate who gets support from students and blacks?
Yup. We know who the right wing wants to see running against McCain. It's pretty sad to see the SCOTUS getting its hands in the picture of presidential politics again. But not surprising. It's been said before, but I'll say it again. Reagan and Bush have damned America with this toxic batch of Judiciary horror stories for decades to come. It certainly reminds us why a McCain victory would surely doom democracy and the constitution of this great nation. It will become this "once" great nation.
