By now, we all know about the right wing activist justices on the SCOTUS, striking down a vital part of the Voting Rights Act, and some believe that it might actually cause a backlash at the polls come 2014, that the RepubliCONS are not counting on happening. According to Chris Hayes, he believes that their totally partisan ruling did in fact bring about the official start of the 2014 mid-term elections, in that it will give the Democrats every incentive to get that great ground game going full force. Only right wingers appear to be too dim to get it, that their fascist practices as a party, only served to make more people determined to stand in line up to 8 hours in 2012 to exercise their Constitutional right to vote, and apparently they are banking on the old fact that turnout in mid-term elections is generally low, BUT, what we have seen of their party, since 2010, is that they are well prepared to use every dirty trick in their bag to keep as many minority voters from being allowed to vote, and this disastrous decision is only going to serve to embolden them even more. That party just refuses to acknowledge the FACT, that the quickly changing minority demographics in this country are a force to be reckoned with, and my fervent hope is that, they will be shown what that phrase means, "be careful what you wish for".
