One cannot get food stamps, assistance checks, medical help without one. One cannot get ANYTHING without a photo ID.
Everyone i know has an ID. pharmacy, beer, drving, flying, smokes, writing checks, little cigarrillos--cashing checks--Everyone.
Why is the argument made that 1) this will Disenfranchise poor voters, and 2) people who want to make sure voter rolls are correct are evil or agenda-driven?
Really, what am i missing?
In fact, when i first started hearing about the issue I felt a little troubled, then ticked off --that people assume that the poor or mentally ill (or really!? people of a certain race!) are too what--Feeble? WEAK? to be like the "REST OF US" ??
That seems really patronizing to me.
so someone tell me what i am missing. srysly. i am not arguing, i am asking.
