I agree with MOST of what you ranted on about. Just one correction, though - It's Demolican and Republicrat. Get the party names right next time!

If you don't drive, don't have a bank account or credit cards, and are self-employed, you pretty much never have to show an ID in the course of everyday life.
I have no problem with requiring an ID. However when states cut the number of voting machines, cut the number of days/hours for early voting, and eliminate Sunday early voting days in areas that have had it for years....Sounds like discouragement
I'm not Demo or Repub, but why shouldn't a person be required to prove who they are to vote? Proof of identity is common procedure for many things we do in society. Should an illegal immigrant be allowed to walk into a polling station and vote?
If you drive, if you buy insurance, R rated movies, attend school, write a check, withdraw money at a bank, get a passport, drink alcohol, enter bars, rent a car, buy a house, sell a house or car. All of those require ID
Eric, there are a lot of people in this country that simply don't have the means to do any of those things. They don't own cars or homes, get paid in cash, and can't afford movies, a bar, or travel that requires a passport.
Frog prince, you are right this is a partisan question. The same people who want us to be identified by our big government for all we do, somehow does NOT want voters to be IDed. ACCORN types vote fradulently in droves.

Even with the ID many places are cutting the number of early voting days, the number of ballot machines, and places that allowed Sunday early voting which helped seniors & many who work during traditional voting hours seemed designed to stop them
