the court's five conservative justices voiced strong doubts about the law's ongoing validity.

I'm not a fan of all the damage the Voting Rights Act has done, but is there an expiration date on it? Because if there isn't, the law's ongoing validity is not a question for the Supreme Court to decide.

Wonder which "conservative" on the court will fold? Roberts again perhaps?

Excellent!

The next step is to overturn the 17th Amendment as illegal in every way, shape and form. Rebellion is brewing and real Conservatism is on march as the real America, the one envisioned by the Founding Fathers, is restored.

Also, ideally, on a non-exhaustive laundry list of reducing an intrusive, meddling government:

FIVE conservatives? Let’s see: You got dependable Scalia, Thomas, and Alito. They you got Roberts (wobbly at best) and finally Anthony Kennedy? So the media paints him as a partisan “conservative” when he looks to disagree with them and a principled “swing vote” when he agrees. Got it.

The truth is there are three dependable conservative votes and four dependable liberal votes right now. Roberts is no longer dependable in my mind, and you can never pin down Kennedy. The lefties only need one more vote, just one more to a leftist majority. If Scalia, Thomas, or Kennedy retire or die Obama will definitely tip the court to a long term leftist majority. Scalia and Kennedy are 76, Thomas is 64. It’s coming.

“But opponents say its time has passed”

Long passed. Neither I nor the students I teach were around when this law was passed, and neither I nor my students can remember Jim Crow. For us, it is something in the textbook....
