REPUBLICAN SUPREME COURT SHUTS DOWN EARLY VOTING
 
What you will notice in the below order of the Supreme Court is, no standard of review has been set out to justify a for Stay Pending Petition for Writ of Certiorari.  Under Chief Justice Roberts [Republican] the Rule has been abolished.  The key part of the Rule has been you will in all likelihood win one the Court does its final ruling.
 
No one expects Associate Justice to rule against Marriage Equality, which means there are 5 votes in favor of Marriage Equality.  Given this reality, it should cause everyone to pause that the court has Stay all lower court orders upholding the right to Marriage Equality.
 
The Roberts Court has abolished the most important Rule which controls judicial activism by the Supreme Court.   If this is the future you want, vote Republican.  If the Republicans take control of the Senate, and a Democrat resigns or dies on the Supreme Court, you can expect the Senate to not confirm a replacement until after the 2016, elections - or if they do, the candidate will have to be a faux corporatist conservative Republican
MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 2014
ORDER IN PENDING CASE
 
14A336 HUSTED, OH SEC. OF STATE, ET AL. V. NAACP, ET AL.
The application for stay presented to Justice Kagan and by
her referred to the Court is granted, and the district court’s
September 4, 2014 order granting a preliminary injunction is
stayed pending the timely filing and disposition of a petition
for a writ of certiorari. Should the petition for a writ of
certiorari be denied, this stay shall terminate automatically.
In the event the petition for a writ of certiorari is granted,
the stay shall terminate upon the sending down of the judgment of
this Court.
Justice Ginsburg, Justice Breyer, Justice Sotomayor, and Justice Kagan would deny the application for stay.
 
I am not saying Ohio would not have won on the merits, what I am saying is parties no longer have to prove and the court no longer has to set out in its ruling, why the Applicant for the Stay will win on the merits.  This is dangerous and a threat on our freedoms.

India has 1.27 Billion people.
400 million make less that $1.25 American dollars a day.
India has a higher voter turn out than the United States and every voter has to have a picture ID to vote.
