5. No, I can't.


The Supreme court is not some dictatorship. The idea that the really can "legislate from the bench" is GD ludicrous.

The VRA defines what states can and cannot do in regards to voting guidelines.

The SCOTUS isn't going to turn around and say "BTW, no one but white land owners can vote."

Get real. People who are so ignorant as to not understand how the court works make every single one of the members of the DU look stupid.
