    Amazing!!!!

    Constitutional rights are granted to US citizens. How would one prove citizenship or identity without an ID?

    I would be very happy to offer more than whatever my fair share is in my state to pay for the required IDs because I am for every citizen who wishes to vote having the opportunity. I've helped people in my community to register for many years and will cheerfully donate if this is what it takes for everybody to have the opportunity to vote...and also for no dead people, etc. to vote.

    The only government issued ID issued to citizens only is a passport, driver's licenses can be issued to non-citzens. So clear since everyone doesn't have a passport there are ways to identity someone as being a citizen without a photo ID.

    Except there first has to be the spin to point out. What I accurately demonstrated was that the phonies pretending to be outraged at this are full of it.

    You do that when you REGISTER to vote. They then match your signature on the day of the casting of your ballot. No photo ID is necessary nor has it been for the forty plus years I have voted.

    Actually I was contrasting the ability of poor, minority and elderly democratic convention goers to obtain a photo ID with the inability of poor, minority and elderly democratic voters to obtain a photo ID. It would seem safe to assume that the difficulties, if they exist, would be equal for each group. It would be interesting to find out how many people werer turned away for not having ID.
