Supreme Court strikes down the heart of the Punative Voting Rights Act of 1965

TODAY THE SUPREME COURT BASICALLY STUCK DOWN THE VOTING RIGHTS ACT OF 1965 IN A 5-4 DECISION.  THE VOTING RIGHTS ACT WAS PASSED IN 1965 FOLLOWING THE LANDSLIDE VICTORY OF LYNDON JOHNSON.  LBJ CARRIED EVERY STATE IN THE NATION WITH THE EXCEPTION OF 5 DEEP SOUTH STATES AND ARIZONA, THE HOME STATE OF BARRY GOLDWATER, HIS REPUBLICAN OPPONENT.  AND EARLY IN HIS TERM IN 1965 HE SAW FIT TO PUNISH THOSE STATES THAT DARED TO VOTE AGAINST HIM, BY PUSHING THROUGH CONGRESS THE VOTING RIGHTS ACT THAT DIDN'T APPLY TO EVERY STATE, BUT ONLY TO THOSE IN THE DEEP SOUTH THAT VOTED AGAINST HIM ALONG WITH SEVERAL OTHERS WHERE THE ELECTION WAS CLOSE.  THE VOTING RIGHTS ACT WAS NOT INTENDED TO HELP THE BLACK MAN, BUT TO HELP THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY.  FINALLY THAT MONSTROSITY HAS BEEN STRUCK DOWN BY THE HIGH COURT AND NOW ALL STATES IN THE UNION HAVE TO COMPLY WITH THE SAME LAWS.  LAWS DIRECTED AT THIS STATE OR ANOTHER SHOULD NEVER BE ALLOWED AGAIN.  READ THE FULL STORY ON THE HIGH COURT'S ACTION HERE.
