The tide is turning against the GOP

U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts and his cohorts have done it again. When their ruling in the Citizens United case wasn’t sufficient to buy the last presidential election, they have apparently decided to go the next step and deprive people from voting by killing the heart of the Voting Rights Act.

The impact of this decision was apparent when within hours of the ruling, as several states moved to institute voter identification laws and are sure to be considering further gerrymandering of congressional districts.

While demographics indicate the nonwhites are now the majority, the rulings by the Supreme Court are an attempt to overturn the future of America by letting the GOP hold on longer. While it may slow efforts to assert the rights of all Americans, the tide is against the Supreme Court and the GOP.
