Voter ID bill to be filed Thursday

Retinal scanners....Seriously?

You can't talk the small Gov line and think something like that wouldn't be exploited to hell.

Same concept applies to Universal Background checks and eventual confiscation.

Retinal is a heckuva lot stable and accurate than facial recognition software and less faulty. In another decade, they'll probably be on everyone's laptops for logon...like some with fingerprint swipers.

How would this be exploited?

In terms of this, what would be confiscated. Where's the harmed party. I can easily be swayed on that fact, but show the true harm. There's no invasion of privacy because your vote is still secret. Voter registration/voter record is public record. DMV already has your pics for other stuff. You refuse to get a license?

Retina scans are wonderful and there's no problems whatsoever, only the criminals need to be afraid. I don't get what you guys are so scared o-

*Obama signs a bill involving increased use of retina scans*

WAKE UP SHEEPLE! IF HITLER HAD RETINA SCANS YOU BEST BELIEVE HE'D BE USING THEM! HERE COMES OLD BIG BROTHER TO CONTROL OUR LIVES! YOU BETTER BELIEVE I'M DEFENDING ME AND MINE WHEN THEY COME FOR ME!

Way to focus on the absurb conclusion...keep reading the thread Delhommey. You sound like a CWG/Panthro-clone.

If the iris scans to vote were somehow linked to outstanding warrant LEA systems, I could see that as a potential 5th amendment violation. But only because of the carrying out of another civil right are you incriminating yourself. Something like scanning driver's licenses to track potential probation violators would not be as there is no civil right infringement. IMO...

Those old ladies at my polling place can't TYPE ON A COMPUTER. How are they going run a retinal scan machine???

Joking around...article mentioned studies into facial recognition software. I simply would put more trust in iris scanning, but it's not even part of this bill.

g5 did you seriously just go from defending some crazy idea of your own to claiming it was a joke when you realized how outlandish it was right now?

i don't understand how people can be opposed to things like a registry of guns but perfectly A-Okay with a government controlled database of pictures that enable quick access to facial recognition software.

Government already has a database of pictures that could be used for quick access from facial recognition software. It's called the DMV.

We are for smaller gov intervention in life except in your doctors office, your vagina, your love life, and IDs or retinal scanners to vote, a state religion,

i wonder how much all this would cost to implement compared to the good it would accomplish. given the eye-poppingly low instances of voter fraud wouldn't this be one of those bullshit wasteful spending big government programs the tea party conservatives love to get all red in the face about?
