Both parties take part in Gerrymandering. It's detestable, but it's nothing new. The photographic ID stuff is absurd, though. Do they really think someone's going to go through all the trouble of faking multiple IDs just to vote when they're not eligible? I highly doubt they do. They're playing at something, and Democrats have offered a pretty viable explanation.
Doctors Without Borders: one of the few charity groups you can rely on to actually do real good in the world.

"The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one's time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all." - H. L. Mencken, unsourced

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'"- Isaac Asimov, Column in Newsweek (21 January 1980) [source]
