Have to show ID to buy alcohol - Gotta have ID to cash a check - gotta have ID to get something notarized

so why is it a big deal to show an ID to vote?

Go to the DMV and get a friggin ID card - its not rocket science - problem solved.

I've not got alot of sympathy for US Citizens not having an ID when my wife has 4 forms of ID and she is not a US Citizen!

No...getting free cigarettes or booze for your vote does.


They have to have an ID to buy booze or cigarettes. An ID cost around $10 and is necessary to do pretty much anything in life. You can't get a job without an ID of some sort, only undocumented immigrants really have an excuse not to have an ID, and they should not be voting anyways.

He's talking about having id...if the state mandates it...they cannot charge for it.

Carry on.

Honestly why would someone/anyone be opposed to this.

Unless you want people voting how they are told to vote vs voting with information they have gathered themselves.

If you can't read, in theory, it should be next to impossible for you to vote with any type of personal opinion.


there are a number of post-literate societies globally that deserve a voice. i think it's a dangerous precedent to deny them that right (and denying someone a vote based on ultimately arbitrary educational parameters in general scares me, even though i fully understand [and quite often lean towards] the sentiment that idiots should not be allowed to vote.)

My point is, how can you know who you are voting for if you can't read the name on the ballot.

Pictures?

Honest conversation here. I could give a poo about voter ID's, but I don't see the evil in it

how is "i can't read so i'm going to select the name that looks the most interesting" any different from "obummer is a socialist so i'ma vote for the other guy"

since we're having an honest conversation here, what makes the second opinion valid and the first opinion invalid

so by the dems being up in arms about this, are they admitting by proxy they have this segment of society in the bag?

yeah it appears as though those who have been systematically oppressed and/or have lived their lives in poverty seem to gravitate to the party that at least attempts to give the impression that it actually gives a poo. imagine that!
