As the Southern States have met the requirements of the unconstitutionally imposed Voting Rights Act, they were released from that section of it by the Supreme Court. The Voting Rights Act was not struck down in whole; those covered by this act can still vote like everyone else.

Yet, there are those who rally to oppose this as if they lost their right to vote, which simply is not the case. They will, however, have to present identification at the polls to prove who they are so they cannot go poll to poll and vote numerous times. Just as I and everyone else has been showing identification at our voting place for several years now.

It’s silly to protest this when they have to show identification in every other transaction in their lives. Why the balking over this one? It’s odd to me that they have the right to vote, but they still want to act as if they can’t. Nothing was lost.

Could all this be because they want revenge against the Southern states and the rest of America because once upon a time they could not vote in this country, or do they just want to hold America hostage in 1963 forever?
