A Question For Us All January 31, 2012Posted by lizp4 in Uncategorized.
I don’t mind admitting I’m an ignoramus on a lot of things. But, I seem to have found one of those things. Can somebody please tell me how carrying a state-issued ID and being mandated to show it at the voting polls “disenfranchises” blacks and hispanics? Obviously, even good arguments will be shouted down by special interests.
We have to show official identification just about everywhere we go. Write a check, show your ID. Use a credit card, show your ID. Go to a federal office or try to board an airplane, and you must show your ID AND get X-rayed or patted down. But these people can’t show the same ID card at a polling place?? I must have hurt my head when I rolled off that turnip truck…
