Papers Please!

I've got a question. What is the big f'n deal about showing ID when you vote? I've been showing ID for ever and it hasn't bit me in the ass yet. So why does everyone have their panties in a wad over this non-issue? Now don't get me wrong, I don't want a "Show me your papers please" society or any Federally issued card that they want to track you movements with. But we are talking about your state drivers license or state issued ID card. The same ones you show when you get caught speeding or applying for many things. Or is it that the folks doing the complaining have some reason they don't want to be identified? I mean crap, to get a Sams Club card or a COSTCO card (costco stands for China OverSeas Trading COmpany) you have to show your ID. If you get a grocery store card you have to show ID. So riddle me this, what is the problem?

The problem is that it will discourage voter fraud which will be a disadvantage to the Dems. It will also cut down on voting by the type of people who are wanted by the police, which also describes a lot of Dem supporters.

You hit the nail on the head my friend. It's the same with rallies. Conservative rallies never have a incidence of violence. Liberal rallies and protests seem to always end up with arrests or crimes that should end up in arrest.
