Sup Ct strikes down AZ law requiring proof of US citizenship for those seeking to vote in fed election. 7-2
(Excerpt) Read more at supremecourt.gov ...
Arizona should immediately enact legislation that gives a $1,000 reward for turning in someone who is illegally registered to vote, and 10 years at Sherriff Joe’s Summer Camp for the offender.
I have since read a minor translation....and it seems that Nino Scalia wrote the decision.
He does not suffer leftist doctrine lightly, I consider him the best constitutiional scholar on the court....so I assume it was a constitutional issue that he would have loved to allow the state to rule on the issue, but it was not in the states purview to do so. The real problem is that the Feds are not obeying the constitution and as that fact has not currently been put before the court, he had no choice than to rule against the state.
Good approach. I went to the garden this morning and the tomato vines are blooming! The I thought, I hope the USDA doesn’t turn me in for farming without a license or something!
I’ve already turned you in.
LeBron is a cocky a**hole. He had an hour special on where he was deciding to go play.
How did the court get around the common sense to agree that someone should be allowed to vote without proof that they are a legal citizen of the jurisdiction/district in which they are voting in? The law would have given us a more accurate result in an election.
How is that a bad thing?
It’s officially. over. The US Constiuttion is deceased, confirmed, dead.
The commies/mozzies/racists are giving the rest of us (the majority) no choice at all. The next steps will not be pretty.
So simply put, if the conservatives can take control of Congress, a small rider / amendment could be introduced to the Federal election laws that requires proof of citizenship and the time of registration or voting.
This would then be enforceable on all the states.
SCOTUS may have just done us a favor - if we can learn to win elections.
Take the time to read Thomas’ dissent. He nailed it.
Because I hate them, especially LeBron. To me the Heat are the Dallas Cowboys or the New York Yankees.
Look for more justifiable secession talk.
This is obscene. Glancing thru the opinion, I think it left open another way of getting to the same end...but only in a way that Obama could probably block.
Well. Rush is saying that the state law cannot trump the federal law. The government submits the federal forms and cannot change one form for one state. The federal government has complete authority on this.
Very true. They don’t live in the real world any more...if they ever did.
Look, it’s really quite simple.
Roberts is no conservative. That’s now amply proven.
Screw the Suprimes.
IMPEACH THE LOT!
I think we should disband state governments and just do federal. Lat’s face reality.

Ok, from the court’s point, they are saying that the state has to have in protections in place for voters to be legal.
“I hope the USDA doesnt turn me in for farming without a license or something!”
My small garden area behind my townhouse has an 8 ft. brick wall around it so no one can see it from the outside. A drone overhead, however, and I’m caught. Then, it’s get the rifle and take out the drone.
