YES! – The GOP are hell-bent on suppressing the right to vote.
NO! - The right to vote is guaranteed under the constitution.

Hello All I don't know if it is my age (55) or just the things I seen throughout my life..But somewhere in the early 2000's I started to see the world as a much diifferent place..Being sucked into this Republican crap like a piece of dirt into a Hoover Sweeper.Lately many people scream at me as if thier believes are right..Most conseritive Christians buy into this Republican Crap' and Fox News is the King of the sound bite...What these brain dead people are falling for is a self serving agenda that goes 180% againist what the bible teachs..Everyday I have someone go on and on about "Obama Care" and I feel the "Working Poor" who Service us all deserve health care.Do they think that the Walmart and/or McDonalds workers don't deserve health care? Plus many other low paid workers That thier lives are expendable? These are people that service all of us! So till someone comes up with a better idea to insure the working poor I say Shut Up !..Some politicans go as far as want to do away with the minimum wage..This sounds like a perfect world to me -Rich people pay no taxes and have slaves..As for the power of Greed they(Republicans) are going to any length to win..Low end folks don't need to vote..Do I think the path the country we are on is a good one? NO but the sweet sound of "Austeritiy" will be the final straw the will kill this nation...The Paul Ryan Budget give the millionaires over a trillion in tax cuts over ten years...Silly for someone who wants to cut the budget? All Great Empires Fall when the Top fails to take heed of the brothers and sisters here at the bottom..The cream will rise to the top....History is about to rewrite it's self and very soon..

Not good options to pick on this question Thom. So while I voted yes, I actually would have preferred to say no, but then it will depend on SCOTUS, but perhaps Justice Thomas will err on the right side again like he did with the AFHC Law. One can only hope. There are so many laws that are really unconstitutional and I don't see them saying a word about those.

"The market has become tilted..."

It seems like the most popular word in this election cycle is 'inequality,' but we need more than talk to narrow the great divide between the haves and have-nots in our nation.

According to a recent article by former Labor Secretary Robert Reich, the pro-corporate elite have rigged the system against us, and it's going to take the majority of us standing together to change the system.
