    As you might expect I did a fair share of my underage drinking at that bar.

    Now, I was born in 1970 so by the time I got to high school the legal drinking age was 21.

    You see how that works?

    Drinking was limited to folks 21 years of age and older, but since nobody was looking we regularly took advantage of the fact and drank, despite what the law said.

    There's an old saying that "locks are made to keep honest people out".

    The same can probably be said for unenforced laws.

    Without actually establishing by some simple, rudimentary process to verify that folks showing up at the polling place are actually legally entitled to vote, or kids showing up at the bar are actually legally entitled to drink, how else would we enforce the laws that underly the legitamacy of either action?

    The voting precinct is not your shady ass bar. If you think no checking is done at all, why do you think there is even a registration process? Why not just let anyone wander in and vote?

    SCOTUS just ruled that the states cannot check for anything the feds don't tell them to check for.

    But is the Supreme Court part of the judicial branch, one of the three branches of government outlined by the constitution?

    I find it ironic that when liberals complain about the Supreme Court it is over its membership but conservitives seem annoyed at its very existance.

    Be honest: you've never actually checked. You didn't ever look up the details of the process.
