Switched over to Fox after I heard news about them gutting the voting rights act. They were gleeful

It is a sad day for minorities in this country. I hope the backlash in 2014 will be so fierce they don't know what hit them.

I am also very angry and want to do something about it but living in California where we are a solid blue state I feel helpless I can't help my fellow Americans preserve the right to vote without the extreme right trying to taking it away.

I suspect the next attack will be on women's voting rights since they are now being nvolved in our uteruses in several states. It wouldn't surprise me if they tried to do this. That said the 5 who voted will be scorned forever in history and they will have lost the respect of whole lot of folks. They are mud in my mind now. Citizens United was horrible this is a slap in the face to minorities in this country. A really sad day.

1. One correction...

It is a sad day for everyone in this country. Now we can decide to pull together to fix things or let ourselves continue to be divided by a few heartless, greedy assholes. As to living in CA and wanting to do something, isn't Issa from CA? Would love to see Californians decide he has gone too far in his pursuit of his own agenda and not his constituents. Hell this House couldn't even pass a farm bill and CA has lots of farms. Start talking incompetence in a rational way about this House and pointing out it is the R's that are the problem.
Also many of those affected by the ID laws lack funds and transportation to get an ID so maybe help on that end so they can vote. I'm looking for existing organizations to gear up something and plan on joining them in helping people get what they need so they can vote. I'm pretty sure they will know who is trying to stop them.
