Entering decision that will impact a few states and lead to further strife between Arizona and the Feds:

Not to mention more litigation given Scalia's comment.

(Another example of the Court not voting along presumed ideological lines)

Show the bravest of the brave kids that you have their back.  Go to http://www.childrenscancercenter.org/

Just check out the site or maybe like them on Facebook . .  or Share the site on Facebook, re-tweet one of their tweets.  Not everyone can give money to support this great cause, but its easy to give 10 seconds of your time to help spread the word about The Children\\\\\\\'s Cancer Center

I haven't read any of the opinions yet (not sure I will read them all :) ) but quick impression is that the Federal Law trumps Arizona's rules as they are imposed on the Federal "Motor Voter" system. I am winging it on the fly here, obviously need much more research, but seeing as the States can determine the qualifications of voters in federal elections, the SC ruled on the process not the principle.
