The Supreme Court has a history of voters' rights decisions that benefit the Republican party. In 2000's Bush v. Gore, the court ruled that recounting votes in Florida was unconstitutional, allowing President George W. Bush to take office.
In 2010's Citizen's United v. FEC, the court decided that corporations can legally pump unlimited amounts of cash into independent political advertisements.
And in 2013's Shelby County v. Holder, the court found that parts of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 were unconstitutional. The court removed a section of the act that required states and counties with a history of voter suppression to obtain federal preclearance before altering their local voter laws."
The less people vote, the more Republicans win.... the less educated, the more alienated and afraid of losing their social status to minorities people are, the more Republicans win. Fact.
