As I was telling a friend on Facebook this afternoon, I don’t care anymore.
I don’t believe in America. I don’t believe in liberal democracy or human rights. I don’t believe in wasting any further time on Republican politics.
The Mitt Romney presidential campaign, the Arizona decision, and the fate of Voter ID laws have proven to me that reforming the system is impossible:
“Court rejects Texas redistricting maps
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A U.S. federal court ruled on Tuesday that controversial Texas redistricting maps discriminate against black and Hispanic voters, effectively killing the new districts before they could take effect for the November 6 presidential election.
The U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia issued the ruling. The state maps, passed by the Republican-dominated Texas legislature, redrew districts in a way that reduced the influence of minority voters, the court ruled.
November’s election will likely use interim maps drawn by a federal court in San Antonio instead….
The fact that a three-judge panel, including two Republican-appointed judges, has found that Texas has intentionally discriminated against minority communities is incredible,” said Luis Vera, attorney for the co-plaintiff United Latin American Citizens.”
