    What's so funny about most of those claims- they are laws being overturned by judges appointed by the same party that wrote the laws.

    And at no point does anyone want to consider that the laws that are being overturned are, in fact, un-constitutional. They just want the rule of the masses to over rule the rights of the individual. Duh. And then they demand that their amendment get zero anything applied to it. Duh, again.

    It's only "judicial activism" and "legislating from the bench" when it overturns your pet bullsh-t.

    Creating entirely new "rights" in Heller and McCutcheon was just fine for the ahem "strict constructionists."

    It's just a partisan fig leaf. The interpretation of the law is, unavoidably, politicization of the law. The only difference between conservative and liberal judicial activists is the former wrap their agenda in hypocrisy.

    People who hadn't voted in 6 years AND failed to respond to a notice in the mail.

    If one met both of the above criteria, they have failed their civic duty, are no longer able to vote, or have moved and perhaps registered in another jurisdiction.

    Re: SCOTUS 10: Pack the Court!

    So because they hadnt voted they dont deserve the right to vote? I dont think you know what "Rights" are.

    They could have moved or died. Declining to vote is a failure of civic duty. Isn't declining to vote for *6 years* a problem?

    A problem for the parties that the choices suck, perhaps.

    Declining to vote is a choice just as much as voting is, as can be seen in the last election. Now you don't have the choice, apparently.

    So, declining to vote removes your right to vote? Good to know.

    There wasn't. Because of God, Gays, and Guns we had to vote the Republicans into office. If only there was a Democratic Party that supported controlling women's bodies, discriminating against homosexuals, and an Uzi for everyone. Then we'd have something to vote for, but right now we're stuck.

    But HER EMAILZZZZ DARNIT!!!

    Look at it this way. If these people couldn't be bothered to vote in the 2016 election, even though restricting the right to vote is a central core of Republicanism, perhaps these people get what they deserve?

    A problem...yes. That doesnt mean you can arbitrarily tell them they now CANT vote. (which is what purging the rolls does)

    Not voting is a choice...not being able to vote pretty much goes against everything we stand for in this country.

    But please just keep "asking the question" maybe one day you will lose your right to vote and then you will actually care.

    But hey let me "just ask a question" does it not seem odd that the only place this seems to be a problem is in districts where GOPers want less Dem voters? Must be a coincidence. The fact it often happens in minority neighborhoods is just another coincidence I am sure. Who needs Civil Rights anyways?
