    It's obvious bull, if they had that percentage the Democrats would go for an amendment codifying their BGC scheme because that would mean they have the consent of the people, and they would be protected from charges that they are engaging in unconstitutional attacks. I've read those polls and their methodology stinks.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Not necessarily. It just means one more little step toward registration, which I vehemently oppose.

    The govt has no compelling interest in my background.

    You use quotes as though that's what I said.

    Voter ID requirements don't "take away" the right to vote, and solid majorities support them, so I guess that has to make it OK in your eyes, yes? Any opposition to them would be "ridiculous radical rhetoric," then, yes? I mean, I do assume you're on board with it. You'd have to be.

    I'll bite, why am I part of the problem, at least from your perspective?

    So...where is this compelling government interest to deny private citizens their right to privacy?

    Because you won't just comply with the desires of temporary leaders is my guess.
