This is why I love Rachel Maddow. I haven’t heard a word about this anywhere else. If you want the summary of this, basically, Republicans in North Carolina are trying to prevent college students (as in, the younger, usually educated, more progressive generation) from being able to vote. How you ask?
By creating a TAX PENALTY if you choose to register to vote in the state your university is in (if you are an out-of-state student), even though the Supreme Court ruled that it is a constitutional right to be able to vote at your educational institution. In what way is it constitutional to charge an individual for their right to vote?!
I think I’m at the point where I can say I hate the majority of the Republican party, because of their blatant disregard for constitutional law when it goes against their initiatives (not to say that the Democratic party is perfect, or anywhere near it). What I don’t understand is, how do they keep getting away with this shit?
