    So, I've been reading the Republican Party of Texas platform off and on and I saw another interesting bit of crazy. 

    Voter Rights Act – We urge that the Voter Rights Act of 1965 codified and updated in 1973 be repealed and not reauthorized.

    If your platform involves limiting voting and preventing higher level thinking then your ideas suck.

    Since the Supreme Court stuck down Arizona's new voter ID law next week, a legal precedent has now been set.

    As a result, the lawsuits filed against the Department of Justice be Texas, Florida, South Carolina (and probably some other states) are likely to lose.

    The link below provides LOTS of additional information on the legal issues at stake.
