    What "obligations" are you talking about? Specifically?

    You can pay taxes without ID, and set your trash out without ID. You don't actually need a photo ID to board a flight, and obviously most poor have never and will never fly on a plane.

    You're confusing the obligations in YOUR life with the obligations for someone who lives an entirely different life.

    For the record, the best data I've seen is there are about 203 million have a drivers license, about 235 million over 18, so more than 32 million do not drive. And you don't need a photo ID or a bank account to cash checks, and lots of people don't pay with checks, which is why if you go to, say, a utility company around the end of the month, there's a long line of people there to pay in CASH, and landlords accept cash, so does Walmart, etc. But nice try!
    I am not buying it Jasper. The fight against valid photo IDs being required to vote is a dishonest left wing ruse. Everyone who does not live the life of an isolated hermit has valid photo IDs. That included minorities and the elderly.

    I can only think of one good reason why they would oppose it and its has nothing to do with the BS manufactured narrative of " voter suppression ".
    What the the left is concerned about is suppression of fraudulent voting.

    The obligation is to have an ID in order to vote. And I challenge your claim that you can board a flight without one. I did not say you needed an ID to pay taxes or put out your trash, but those are obligations like having an ID to vote.

    Since there is an infinitely small amount of fraudulent voting from the left compared to the right, this is another lie. The GOP simply cannot win fairly--neither could Nixon. Trying to maintain a majority with a minority--GOP Gerry-Mandering and voter suppression .

    So everyone who votes should be able to board a plane in yer world! How about having a visa also? State's wrongs on steroids caused the first civil war and right-wing books advocating for a 2nd civil war continue to lead the best-sellers. Ampped by right-wing hate radio .

    The key word is valid and the 50 different sets of rules to get them--all Jim Crow laws--all subject to change every two years as we've seen--and that doesn't even scratch the surface of states like Kansas contesting 20,000 registrations and Georgia losing over 40,000 .

    Really, so let's say it's 4 people per year in Texas. The small government conservatives tired of meddling bureaucrats and government regulations governing your lives are OK with making 400,000 people spend time and money to get an ID that catches FOUR people?

    And if only 1% of the 400,000 without ID can't get ID in time or at all, you'll disenfranchise 4,000 eligible, registered voters to solve the problem of 4 ineligible votes. A good trade?
