Voting rights should be protected, hence the amendment. Free speech rights, including freedom of association, should be protected, hence the 1st amendment.

Supreme courts typically function primarily as appellate courts, hearing appeals from decisions of lower trial courts, or from intermediate level appellate courts. Thanks. http://easyforextrading.us/revealing-no-fuss-copywriting-guides-programs.html | argan oil images

This is the most common step in the process towards the Supreme Court. Most cases originate in a District or a Federal Court when the party who does not prevail believes a higher court will rule differently. Thanks.
