Another major shift in the US took place today as the Supreme Court struck down a part of the Voting Rights Act, and a corner stone of the Civil Rights Act. The congress passed the voter rights act in 1965 which gave the federal government control over what had been a states right to set rules on voting in each state. The Federal Government has taken a punch in the gut with this since they have forever wanted to control election process. In the past few years we have see the fight between states and feds over making voters prove they are citizens by requiring photo ID at voting time. It also takes the feds out of congressional re-districting. Some analysis’s is saying this is a major rebuke to congress by the Supreme Court.
Maybe our system does work, it just takes a lot of time.
Have a great day. Be kind to yourself today!
