Quite a few folks don't seem to understand that the Supreme Court ruling on VRA, which I'm calling KKKourtgate, wasn't just a legitimate exercise of authority toward negative ends - that it was in fact a totally arbitrary, legally moribund, and Constitutionally impeachable abuse of power to enable the suppression of voters who overwhelmingly vote against the Party of the Court majority. So I'd like to offer some analogies as to what the exact same abuse would be like if committed by the Executive branch.
There are a number of Executive analogies that might apply:
1. The President orders the firing of all Republican military commanders and the promotion of Democratic officers to replace them.
2. A law gives the Executive branch the authority to regulate how many widgets are sold each year. The President "interprets" this authority as giving him the power to order that no widgets be sold to Republicans.
3. Congress passes a law with a veto-proof majority that the President doesn't like, but he vetoes it anyway and acts like that's the end of it. When SCOTUS rules the law valid, he ignores them too and just does whatever he wants.
All of these would obviously be impeachable abuses of power, and if Barack Obama acted like this, his involuntary return to private life would happen very quickly. But somehow there is a magic aura surrounding the Supreme Court where literally nothing it does is admitted to be a criminal violation, even when it's basically the exact same kind of violation as those identified above. That's insane, and has brought us to this sorry state of affairs.
What the majority in the VRA decision did is simply this: They usurped authorities granted to the Legislature under the Constitution in order to stop the Executive branch from preventing voter suppression by states, so that the Republican Party can be protected from demographic changes in the United States and illegitimately "win" elections based on denying the rights of large numbers of voters. They have...
1. Usurped authorities granted to another branch of government.
2. Done so for purely partisan purposes with no basis in law. And...
3. Deliberately sought to enable direct attacks on the fundamental Constitutional rights of a quarter of the American people.
Yeah, these people need to be ejected from the Supreme Court immediately, if not disbarred.
