Re: ID to vote?
I think the point is that some people cannot afford the time and/or money for the appropriate ID.
Also, the point is FUCK YOU. We are not a fucking police state. There is no proof that voter fraud is any sort of problem in this country. Stop capitulating to whatever indecency the government wants to visit upon you just because you cannot think of a good reason not to. FUCK YOU is a good enough reason to resist the government's removal of your rights. You have to guard ALL your rights jealously, even the ones that do not seem important, or you will soon find that you have lost more than you believed possible.
(BTW, that FUCK YOU is to the government, not to the posters here.)
The right-wing should be so ashamed of themselves for trying to pull this bullshit off. And that is how you know it IS purposeful voter intimidation, because they CLAIM to be the small-government-individual-rights party, while taking away our rights. Seriously, this sounds like something the socialist-big-governement-regulation left would come up with, but nope, it's the supposedly libertarian right. Totall bullshit.
